bobsboots.com states this came out in 1975. I wish they had listed how they had arrived at this conclusion – I assume they are simply quoting the Great White Answers Dylan vinyl bootleg bible – I would say this came out in 1973.

When King Kong re-issued the album, they changed the cover design. bobsboots states this happened in 1978.  I would say that this happened years before that date as King Kong and Instant Analysis releases were typically produced around 1975.

This single track had already been included on a Dutch 1970 2 LP bootleg called help.
