Positively 4th Street-Bob Dylan

The master take of "Positively 4th Street" was recorded on July 29, 1965, during the mid-June to early August recording sessions that produced all of the material that appeared on Dylan's 1965 album, Highway 61 Revisited.[8] The song was the last to be attempted that day, with Dylan and a variety of session musicians having successfully recorded master takes of "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry" and "Tombstone Blues" earlier.[1][9] The studio band on "Positively 4th Street" featured Robert Gregg (drums), Russ Savakus (bass), Frank Owens (piano), Al Kooper (organ) and Mike Bloomfield (guitar),[10] with the song initially being logged on the studio's official recording session documentation under the working title of "Black Dalli Rue".

This is a cool video.

Also, there WAS a really cool image generator where you could script the cue cards in Bob Dylan's iconic "Subterranean Homesick Blues" video. It was on the Sony/BMG UK website. Sadly it's now disappeaered so I've edited and removed the link.
