Well, the good news is that even if it's mostly repetitive, Bob is still fiddling around with the song order and some of the songs themselves...so...maybe...it's the beginning of the end of The Set mentality?
Which we've endured since 2013, by the way.

Looking forward to what's in store for 2017...and for the rest of this Leg!

And to seeing tonight's Set List!


(Now a re-listen of Paris '66's Ballad of a Thin Man & screaming LARS!)

Thanks Bill & Jayne!

Dusquesne & Desolation are back.
Gave me a little ERK Shock there for a moment, Domino.
I would dump many before that one!

Have a great night all!

Nice to see Duquesne Whistle! I kind of wish he had kept Baby Blue, it's a favorite and he hasn't done it much in recent years. I hope he nailed it out there somewhere and a tape makes it's way to my ears.

Just realized no Lonesome Day Blues tonight. Bob should play a 24 song set going forward; same set as tonight; add Baby Blue, Lonesome Day and Scarlet Town in the main set. Would push it to 100-105 minutes. Maybe 2-3 people would stand for a few songs. Any requests from the front in Jacksonville next Friday?

Great show tonight, Asheville has a special energy. The people there are kind. Those who wanted to stand and dance did. And then they sat if they wanted to. No problem. Almost everybody respected the no photo request so security was nonexistent. I hope a boot surfaces and won't be surprised if one does.

The lil fiddling around with setlist order was fun and seemed better. Light in the cracks. Lots of Bob songs, a surprise here and there, and beautifully done covers. Center stage is the sweet spot. Bob seemed content to let the boys rock out the last bit of the songs which was an absolute roadhouse treat. Genuine respect - that band cares an awful lot about Bob and the music.

The sound in the theatre was good once they got the mix right (song 2).

Meanwhile, ERK later in the set grabbed momentum and snarls in light of recent events.

I miss the hypnotic harp solos that the old set included. One is not enough.

Loved this show and feel gratitude to Bob and the band for their endurance, to Asheville for its compassionate healing spirit and to the gorgeous moon for its light on my journey home through the mountains.

yea!

However joyous we are that certain songs have gone or returned - the fact remains that last night there were 7 'Sinatra era' songs in the set list - that's 33% of the son count! 20% or four of those songs would surely be enough!

Yeah, I was gonna say, there's about five Sinatra songs too amyn in there for my personal liking, however, this looks like a much more balanced presentation of Bob's work (that would improve immensly if "Baby Blue" returned) than that Sinatra-heavy ModBob set of 2015. Even for a newbie who has Bob on the bucket list, this should be an enjoyable show. The songs recognizable for the tourists are placed stragetically through the set and you still get the sense that Bob is looking forward and in tuen with his latest work. Well done.

Having said that, beyond the performances itself, it has very little to offer for seasoned Bob show attendees, of course, whcih is a bit of a shame considering the possibilities.

I think 'Stay With Me' is there for Leonard Cohen. It appeared the night after his death was announced. That's Bob, isn't it? No fuss, no hoohaa. Just a quiet tribute. Of course he might still say something on his website.

Did he have much or anything to do with Leonard Cohen though? He played 'Hallelujah' at a couple of shows in Montreal in 1988, but, from recollection, that's about it.

He also squeezed in an additional song on the list in Asheville, bringing it from 20 to 21 songs played.
For what it's worth...


Thanks for the report Heron!

Disappointing that he took my favorite song out of the set (Baby Blue). Never heard it live and won't be seeing him till 2017 at the earliest so I can only hope he brings it back. Though he has brought back some other hits and look forward to seeing those when I see him, assuming they're there still.

They intersected a few times over the years, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s. Dylan played on a Cohen track in the '70s, invited him to the Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975 and dedicated a song to him, discussed songwriting with him the the 1980s, played "Hallelujah" at two shows in 1988, played at least one Cohen track on Theme Time Radio Hour, and discussed Cohen in a recent news article. I wouldn't say that their careers are intertwined, but they definitely had some meaningful interactions.
