Today's Death Penalty Song: Dylan and 'Hattie Carroll"

As a longtime music maven (former editor at Crawdaddy etc.) and author of a new e-book probing the death penalty in the USA  (Dead Reckoning),  I thought it would be apt for me to post a video here every day with a song illustrating or commenting on executions in America. So far we've featured  Elvis Costello, Metallica, Springsteen,  Johnny Cash, Led Zep, The Band, Billie Holiday, and more.  And now Mr. Bob Dylan with rare live performance of one of his greatest songs (on unequal justice).
