Bob Dylan - Mississippi

was recorded for Dylan's Time Out of Mind but, when that album ran long, it was shunted to the next one down the line, 'Love and Theft.'

Thematically, I think it makes more sense grouped with the other TOoM songs, but it's a powerful work, nonetheless.

Sheryl Crow would later rework the song's melody, phrasing, and arrangement, and record it for The Globe Sessions, released in 1998, before Dylan released it on 'Love and Theft.'
