Replace the harmonica solo with a guitar solo and I would give this 90.

I heard this album for the first time yesterday! It changed my view on sixties music and Bob Dylan! This is the perfect ending to this and any album!

Just saying but this and 'Tangled Up in Blue' are for me Dylan's most wonderful musical moments. Dylan's best trick was always to be all things to all people and this song sums up just about everything that makes Dylan so fascinating or not - dependent on your perspective.
