* - But FIRST released by Ian & Sylvia (May 1965 - Canadian hit), and Peter, Paul & Mary (Sept 1965 - minor US hit). Lightfoot's version was 1st released on his debut album, Jan 1966. // Dylan has stated in interviews that this album was something of a joke, far below the standards he set in the 1960s, and was made to end the "Spokesman Of a Generation" label that critics had put on him. // LATER, he expanded upon that in a 1985 interview with Cameron Crowe: "Self Portrait" was a bunch of tracks that we'd done all the time I'd gone to Nashville. We did that stuff to get a [studio] sound. To open up we'd do two or three songs, just to get things right and then we'd go on and do what we were going to do. Also, I wasn't going to be anybody's puppet and I figured this record would put an end to that...I was just so fed up with all that 'who people thought I was' nonsense."

According to Clark, this was written in just a few hours during the Byrds' 1965 British tour, after a night spent carousing with Paul McCartney at "The Scotch of St James" club in London. It was also released as single in early 1966, and surprisingly did _not_ even make the Top-40. WHY 'surprisingly' - because 'Turn! Turn! Turn!, the previous single, was a #1! hit.
