The second release from the groundbreaking Mondo Scripto series continues Bob Dylan’s own selection of his most renowned lyrics, each originally handwritten by him in pen on paper and accompanied by a pencil drawing.
In an urban world somewhat reminiscent of Marcel Carne’s 1945 film Children of Paradise – part circus, part Edwardian decadence – a soul adrift reaches out to a nameless love amid a gallery of grotesques. As with many of the voices on Blonde On Blonde, where ‘I Want You’ appeared, the persona in this song is an anthology of ambiguities and ambivalences, certain only of wanting some kind of connection with the persona the lyrics address. He claims that he ‘wasn’t born to lose’ her, but from the evidence that seems unlikely.
First album release: Blonde On Blonde, 1966.
