It is believed that Live at The Gaslight was culled from tapes recorded with this arrangement. But induring a video interview promoting the release of Dylan's Live box, sound engineer Richard Aldersonwho had built the Gaslight's sound system and would later handle the sound for Dylan's tour, claimed he was the one who recorded the Gaslight performances at the request of the Gaslight's Rocks And Gravel - Bob Dylan - Second Gaslight Tape during an after hours show.

Described by critic Dave Marsh as "the most widespread folk song in the English language", " Barbara Allen " dates as far back as the 17th century, when Samuel Pepys wrote about the song in a diary entry dated Rocks And Gravel - Bob Dylan - Second Gaslight Tape 2, Similar but different versions of the ballad have been traced to English and Scottish folk traditions, and when "Barbara Allen" was brought to North America by early European settlers, no particular version of "Barbara Allen" was dominant or considered definitive.
Over the years, countless variations of "Barbara Allen" have been found throughout the United States, with roughly variations in Virginia alone, but the version Dylan sings on Live at The Gaslight is one rooted in the English folk tradition. In the story of "Barbara Allen", the title character rejects a suitor his name varies in different versions of the songs, ranging from Sweet William to John Graeme. On his death bed, he calls Barbara Allen to his side, swearing his love for her.
However, in some versions of "Barbara Allen" particularly older variationshe discovers Barbara Allen's complaint that he once neglected her in a local tavern. When she sees him on his death bed, she offers a cold observation, "Young man, I think you're dying.
The story then takes a strange twist: when Barbara Allen walks home, she hears the church bells tolling for her true love. She then dies, mysteriously, and the two are buried in an old churchyard, where a love knot then comes to twine, made from a rose growing out of her lover's heart and a brier from Barbara Allen's. Towards the end of his essay on "Barbara Allen", Dave Marsh focuses on the outcome of the song, the intertwined rose and briar emerging from the graves of the spurned lover, and Barbara Allen's rejection of her true love.
