  Commentary on Desolation Row, Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited, 1965.
In this song, Desolation Row, Dylan uses cultural and religious stereotypes as metaphors to describe this lunacy of main stream 1960's American society.
Desolation Row is the name he gives to the place where people have gone to opt out of the lunacy, and who are being punished by society for not wanting to participate in the lunacy.
Desolation Row is a counter-culture destination, though more a state of mind than an actual place.

"Desolation Row", Paestum: When hearing the song in Gelsenkirchen this year (July 2) I thought it was rather much the worst single vocal performance by Dylan I ever experienced in person: there was such a careless, lacklustre arbitrariness about it that the song was fully mortified.
"Desolation Row", Portland: This is on a very different level - Dylan has a feel of time for the song and incorporates it into his delivery, which - unruinable, ever lasting consequence - directly effects "my" feel of time when listening to the version.
Desolation Row, Portland: This was heading for a pretty good rating until the Dr. Filth verse, when it all went south.

Desolation Row is either a neighborhood in a city and is much like a red light district, or some place of debouchery, and is frowned upon by society when in reality, everyone wants to go there.
Littered on the road to Hell, which is also the path of experience, we find all sorts of seemingly well-intentioned human beings, who have been heedlessly slaughtered by their own sins for the hubris of failing to recognize themselves as sinners and address their deficiencies.

 Desolation Row | The San Diego Union-Tribune
Somewhere in that nightmare country (appropriately called Desolation) the guides lost their bearings, and the walkers wandered deeper and deeper into wilderness and despair.
But a good bard expands and enlarges his story, says Urrea, and as his corrido leads us deeper into Desolation, the story's stark outline starts to shift like desert shadows.
That sonofabitch guide who deserted his charges was just a 19-year-old kid, a little guy trying to make a buck, the dumb pawn of a bigshot coyote who still runs his lucrative human-smuggling operation from an air-conditioned office, well beyond the short arm of the law.

 Global Eye -- Desolation Row
In recent days, the perverse moral calculus that guides the masters of war in the White House has revealed itself with startling clarity -- laid bare like the gurgling intestines of a 3-year-old child whose skin has been flayed by a fragmentation bomb.
As the desolation -- sorry, liberation -- of Iraq continued apace, the Masters moved quickly and efficiently to secure the country's oil fields, but they blithely and deliberately failed to secure the lives of innocent people left in bombed-out cities without any system of law or governance.
Unlike oil rigs -- which, after all, can be restored if something happens to them -- the actual human beings destroyed in the chaos that followed the invaders' high-tech blitzkrieg cannot be replaced -- not even by no-bid, $7 billion reconstruction contracts to Dick Cheney's Halliburton.

So, my question is: I heard an amazing version of desolation row on the dead hour a few years ago where the band and bobby's voice intensified (a lot) near the end of almost every verse.
Thanks to the information provided by Samson, I was checking out the programming from GDH over the last five years and Gans played Desolation four times, 9/24/91, 5/10/91 (they seem to like playing this song on 5/10), 4/21/86, and 7/9/90.
If i had to guess, I would say your version is 4/21/86, but it is hard to say.
