Bob Dylan performs "Dink's Song" in Bonnie Beecher's Apartment in 1961. (From the bootleg tape "Songs For Bonnie").
because he learnt that song from Dave van Ronk and i'm sure in 1961 he had not played with him yet...maybe i'm wrong.But Dave van Ronks version is better in my opinion.
On December 22, 1961, a month to the day after Bob Dylan's final session, Dylan was in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he and his friend Tony Glover paid a visit to their friend, Bonnie Beecher. Dylan held an informal session at her apartment, performing twenty-six songs which were recorded by Glover on a reel-to-reel tape recorder. Often known by a misnomer, the "Minneapolis hotel tape" would soon enter private circulation, providing a thorough look at Dylan's musical potential only a month after recording his debut album. A larger and far more diverse selection of songs, they were all recorded the night of the 22nd in roughly two and a half hours. (from Wikipedia)
