Another Dylan song that Dylan didn’t release – the first official release of I’ll Keep It With Mine was a rather splendid, and surprisingly jaunty version by Judy Collins, released in 1965:
The version we’re more familiar with was by Nico recorded for her first solo album Chelsea Girl:
We kind of like the version by Rainy Day, which was this supergroup featuring David Roback, Kendra Smith, Susanna Hoffs, a Paisley Underground thing. That’s kind of what we based that on.
But this is my favourite version by Fairport Convention featuring the wonderful Sandy Denny in 1969
Dean & Britta recorded it for Nico’s screen test in 13 Most Beautiful and it has been released on the accompanying album and a couple of 7″ singles – all CD and vinyl releases feature one of two remixes by the late Scott Hardkiss – but Britta allowed this site to share the unremixed version.
