With the release of Vol. 14 of Bob Dylan’s Bootleg series, Columbia Records released a video of the first take Dylan recorded of his song “If You See Her, Say Hello” with a unique twist.  It is an animated version of Dylan’s own handwriting from his original notebooks.

The song unfolds — is written — before our eyes, with additions and words crossed-out, as though we were seeing through Dylan’s eyes, as he wrote in Barry Weinstein’s photo,  an unexpected intimacy and insight.
