  • Blooper: On the live version of "Like a Rolling Stone", Dylan forgets the lines "But now you realize/He's not selling any alibis" and just mumbles his way through them.
  • Mid-Development Genre Shift: The initial recording sessions, done a few weeks after Nashville Skyline was released, saw Dylan continuing in the Country Music vein, focusing mainly on Cover Versions. When he returned to the studio about nine months later, he kept going with the covers, but went in a Folk Music direction. Also he dropped the twangy croon he'd unveiled on Skyline and went back to his regular voice. But rather than scrap any of the other work he'd done, he decided to just release it all, along with some songs recorded at the Isle of Wight Festival in August 1969.

How well does it match the trope?
