Mr Mongoose reminded me of this other example, from fifty years back, of Justice bending over backwards to fellate Celebrity. Actually more inspired and expressive than the studio cut on Times They Are A-Changing, this version reveals how skillfully the young Dylan applied what are fairly rudimentary instrumental skills in augmentation of an idiosyncratic but faultless vocal delivery. The events of the song are broadly accurate, although some have quibbled over the years about details. There are a few judge-songs in the Dylan canon, Percy's Song, Drifter's Escape, Seven Curses, Hattie Carroll and many, many references to judges; I guess they are, by definition, characters of utility to the song-storyteller. The Pistorious judge, wotsername, Thokozile Matilda Masipa, is as deserving of a sung memorial as any, her waltzing deftly around the truth, should figure, somewhere.
For those, anyway, curious about the legendary Bob Dylan, this performance conveys his power to mesmerise, transfix and move to tears any room. large or small, in which he plied his trade, once upon a time.
