The song was recorded in December and first released in January as " Mighty Quinn " by the British band Manfred Mann  and became a great success. It has been recorded by a number of performers, often under the "Mighty Quinn" title. The subject of the song is the arrival of Quinn an Eskimo , who changes despair into joy and chaos into rest, and attracts attention from the animals. Dylan is widely believed to have derived the title character from actor Anthony Quinn 's role as an Eskimo in the movie The Savage Innocents. Dylan first recorded the song in during the Basement Tapes sessions , but did not release a version for another three years. Meanwhile, the song was picked up and recorded in December by the British band Manfred Mann , who released it in early under the title "Mighty Quinn". A later incarnation of Manfred Mann, Manfred Mann's Earth Band , included a dramatically different live version of the song on their album Watch.
