This is the song that started it all. First heard the song after picking up up a copy of a CD called Songs Inspired by the Passion of the Christ four years ago. The CD was a collection of songs chosen by the most unlikely pair - Mel Gibson and Bono. In the collection was this song, Not Dark Yet, in its original format off the Time Out of Mind album by Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan gave his permission to include the song in the collection. This particular performance of Not Dark Yet is from Portland, Oregon in 1999.
And this just in, here's Bob doing a no-frills version of Not Dark Yet just last night (Aug. 24, 2008) in Evansville, Indiana.
