burritobrother If you haven't heard Elvis Presley's version of this (from 1966) you absolutely must. There's some live versions but get the studio take. It's a beautiful rendition of a sadly overlooked song. Jan 13, 2008
David Dixon I haven't owned (of listened to) Greatest Hits II since 1975. This was a song I had forgotten. I heard a group called Nickel Creek singing it on NPR one night, and I was struck by the gorgeous melody that seemed so familiar. My 9-year old daughter was in the car with me, and she also commented on the pretty song. I said, "I think it's a Bob Dylan song." Sure enough, it is. I don't remember what I thought of it in 1975, but now I can't speak highly enough of the wistful, longing beauty of this song. I found a CD that circulates under the name of "Les Bon Moments," (highlights of the 1997-98 winter tour)which contains Tomorrow. It is an altogether wonderful rendition. I've played it 5 or 6 times in a row several times. What a delightful discovery. Dec 20, 2007
Dianne This song captures the utter heartache and complete inability to accept the death of a relationship. You become invisible, unable to find solace in anything, unable to sleep in your own bed because your love is no longer there. Jan 21, 2007
