Very proud of Bob for giving this massive hit a rest.
Says a lot.

Some bands "have to" play their greatest hits.
We'll see how long he holds out with Desert Storm approaching.

How often did he sing it well anyway? I can only think of a couple short stints in which he put anything into the performances.

I remember being surprised by the power of some 2008 performances...I don't remember which, though.

This whole SET is something he can be proud of, IMO. Very few artists of his longevity and stature present so much new material and do so few of their iconic hits.

It would be good to hear it now, after such a long rest .
It would be good to hear a lot more classic Dylan songs at his shows, played with the care and love he gives to the SITN/FA covers

See, I think it's coming back...we may even see it tonight. Actually, I think we will see it tonight.

But, yeah, I otherwise agree with you.

This is one of the songs I think the album version is superior to any live performance that Bob has given.

Agreed. Other than the live versions from '66, I've never liked this song live as much as the studio recording

Yeah, I hope he leaves it be. Let it age a bit more.

This was one that felt good through the vibrations on the floor, reassuring rhythmic seismic activity, but wasn't great to listen to.

Are you talking about the sound of the song , Trev, or the sound of putting the song on a shelf?

Agree on this one, something tells me if he played LARS again, he might turn it to a Crooner-ish tune. Actually I could see Bob going back and re-doing his hits in this fashion.

I can really only take so much of this. Had anyone in 2013 criticized Bob's continued inclusion of LARS in his set, you would have jumped out of your bare feet in indignation at the suggestion that playing his hit every night was anything but sheer respect for the song's indispensable genius. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, you find it still fits perfectly.
Putting Bob above criticism is something I & i can neither honor nor forgive.

Just not sure where you're coming from, or what your grudge is, son.
May I suggest: Axegrinder's Anonymous.

It really starts off in a way that would suit a Sinatra-style:
Once upon a time
You dressed so fine
Threw the bums a dime
In your prime
Didn't you?

In fact it's almost like a Cole Porter song.

The 78 version was all right wasn't it? How about 1981? :)

:lol: I can hear Frank singing it now.

It may be just my imagination, but it seems to me that a lot of Sinatra songs
had the word "bum" in them. Or maybe it was just a word that he liked to use often.

He does say it well!
Dylan himself mentions bums in three different '65 songs. It was a world of bums and hobos in those days. That's why the lady is a mystery tramp!

Certainly Spirit has been beat to death.
"You think I'm over-the-hill?"
You think I'm past my prime."

Ya, ya, Bob, get over yourself already...

Kind of agree regarding ERK except it's the only rockin tune in the freakin Set!

And keep Rainy Day shelved while yer at it.
So many other masterpieces to highlight!
