Walls of Red Wing by Bob Dylan

Album: The Bootleg Series Volumes 1–3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961–1991Released: 1963
  • Red Wing was a famous boys' reformatory in Red Wing, Minnesota. Many of Dylan's early fans believed that Dylan himself had been incarcerated in Red Wing, but he never was. Further, there are many Minnesotans familiar with the place that doubt that Dylan ever laid eyes on it at all, as the school resembles a college much more than a prison, as he depicts it in the song.
  • Dylan performed this song live on occasion from 1963-1964, but it wasn't released until it appeared on the 1991 collection The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961-1991.
