Since when did the arrangement to Highwater change on this tour?

Listening to last nights show it seems it's now set to the tune of Boom Boom Mancini by Zevon. Quite like it.

It started changing in the summer tour but really got there at the start of this tour in Indio I think

Indiano sounds the same as it has for awhile to my ears. Even Thackerville on the 22nd October has the old arrangement. Seems quite a recent change.

Wow. The Durham version really is practically a cover of Boom Boom Mancini

The regular version is way better. The song NEEDS a banjo.

Just checkin'...I was thinking of the regular version of a few nights after the Newport Wig incident, up in Moncton. That one blazed into the synapses.

According to Boblinks, Bob played piano on High Water (For Charley Patton) in Durham (North Carolina) and yesterday in Roanoke (Virginia). Is that true?
I wish, he would play harp on that tune again, as he did in 2013.

Best version is fall 2001.

Larry on Banjo (better rhythmically), Charlie's razor-like telecaster bass licks, Kemper's more direct drumming.

best imo

late summer 03
winter/spring 02
fall 01
summer 2010

funny that bob scrapped the arrangement from start of this tour already, which I thought was very much a drop off from what he had cooking...and this newest "boom-boom-zevon" version is much more workable...and then and goes and re-works the best version of Pay in Blood...with a soft kick the dust pondering arrangement...that I'm not a big fan of.

Just listened to the Durham tape and have to say: It's Boom Boom Highwater, indeed. Interesting. But it still sounds very unfinished - at least in my ears.

Anyone listen to the Florida shows yet (better yet, anyone go?)

Just wondering if the Highwater & Pay in Blood arrangements stayed similar to the Carolinas or showed any development?

I quit downloading every available show back in the Duke Days when the shows became blurred & so similar over long periods. One or two good-sound-quality shows from each Tour Leg has been more than plenty for the past several years. I think he was prepping us for the 36-CD 1966 box.

Interestingly Highwater was performed in three different arrangments this tour. It started with the rocking one with Donnie on the electric mandolin, then he came up with the "Boom Boom Mancini" one before switching back to the "classic" one from recent years.

Pay In Blood maintained the same throughout the tour.

Pay in Blood had a whole new arrangement during the first week of Nov

Thanks Alrik.
I haven't listened to any recordings beyond Durham from this last tour, so...

If possible, can you tell us which shows were the debuts of each new arrangement of Highwater?

And...is there much difference between the "rockin" & the "classic" versions besides the mandolin?


And TPSoak:
Yeah, that's what I thought too. You mean like, Charlotte? (where I met you)
So do we know which shows were the debuts of those Pay versions as well?

Sorry guys, I'm too lazy to download so many similar shows to find out for myself.

That Boom Boom Mancini version of High Water is absolutey nuts. I can't help but think that it would work better if he just sang the words to Boom Boom Mancini, but it's great to hear that Bob's still experimenting live.

Any way to just listen to Highwater as a single song (and Pay in Blood too!) without downloading?
Like a youtube audio or a soundcloud audio?
