The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo)
Composer: Bob Dylan

The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo) was first performed by the Grateful Dead in December 1986. The song was then performed more than 50 times between 1987 and 1995. On all but a handful of occasions Might Quinn was the closing song of a show.

Some Dylan-ologists believe that a possible source for the title of the song is Nicholas Ray's 1960 film 'The Savage Innocents' in which Anthony Quinn plays an Eskimo.

The Manfred Mann version of Mighty Quinn was a #1 hit in the UK chart in February 1968. The same single reached #10 in the US Billboard chart.
