Originally demoed by Bob Dylan in June 1973, he recorded this song with The Band five months later for possible inclusion on his his Planet Waves album, It didn't make the final tracklisting but was eventually released in 1991 on The Bootleg Series Volumes 1–3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961–1991 set.)
Jack Savoretti covered the song for his Written In Scars record. He explained to The Sun: "I recorded one of my albums in LA at Jackson Browne's studio. He has a room with all his guitars and boxes of old records and tapes. In there was a bootleg recording of this Dylan song from a concert he did in England that never got released officially. It saved my life and I take it everywhere."
The Isley Brother's song, "Contagious," peaked at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100. This meant that the band of brothers became the first group to score a Top 50 hit in six consecutive decades on the chart.
