Hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since Bob entered Miami's Criteria Studios to lay down Time Out of Mind.
Last 2016 show. Have fun Miami!

Frank Sinatra - "Drinking Again" - Doris Tauber/Johnny Mercer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rRiYnAIZrk


Beaten Path Image


"Elvis buying a 1956 Lincoln Continental in Miami, August 4, 1956."



"In addition to the jacket and pants, Elvis also had to replace his new Lavender Lincoln while in Miami. Brian Petersen in "The Atomic Powered Singer" wrote, his fans got to his brand new Lincoln Premiere and wrote endearing notes all over the car. Elvis turned the car in for an all white Continental Mark II at the local Lincoln Mercury dealer. The new car was in the $10,000.00 and over class and provided an added touch of distinction to the Presley driveway parked alongside his three remaining Cadillacs."


Image

"Fans in line on SE 2nd Ave catching fragments of clothing"


"Del Puschert, a tenor Saxophone player from Maryland, had first met Elvis, Scotty and Bill in Texarkana in 1954 or 1955 while they were still performers of and enroute to the Louisiana Hayride. Del was now, by this time, attending barber school in Miami. He was part of the local union band put together to augment the tour orchestra backing the acts performing in Miami at the Olympia this tour. He was backstage with Elvis when pants torn by the crowd were cut up and then tossed to the fans in line from an upper window of the theater overlooking SE 2nd Avenue across from the Ingraham Building.

Miami News Staff Writer Damon Runyon Jr. called the show obscene and contrived in his review. He wrote,

"For the second day Elvis Presley, the vaudeville Valentino, rocked along his bumpy road to success here today after his fanatical followers engaged in a small scale street riot. More than 8800 fans, ranging from agitated adolescents to old ladies fallen from Liberace's grace, were expected to shriek, rattle and roll again at Presley's shake dancing in the Olympia Theater. Police were braced for the most exuberant exhibition audience fantods in the afternoon shows, 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. which usually are the stomping grounds for the youngest affected by Presley. Young girls (many less than teen age), not a few youths, and even a number of elderly deserters from Liberace's ranks, witnessed their "lover boy," as they call him do the most obscene burlesque dance this reporter has seen in more than 20 years of getting around. From the theater wings it was possible to see that the 21 year old Presley's ribald routine is not of the emotions, as he's been telling the press around the country -- his pelvic performance is clearly contrived. Also far from fervor of the uncontrolled type are his other million dollar stage mannerisms -- the slack jawed gibberish, the glassy gape of a hypnotized hillbilly, the unmannered gesture of wiping the nose, the staggering and shaking as if he'd a bad fit.""

I love reading all these positive impressions by concert-goers. The bootlegs show he's still great and I hope he comes back to Europe next year.

I also think he wants to see us all again. He closed 2016 (as well as 2014) with the lines
All that I can do is pray
Stay with me
Stay with me


In 2015, he left us with
Just don’t know what to do
I’d give anything to be with you


Yes, as always, these lines could be read as being sung to his own true love or to Jesus. But I'm pretty sure he's singing them to us, as well. :)

Love the Stats graph, Precious!
Very informative and I like the layout.
Have you created them for other Bob tours, or Bob tour legs, too?

From today's front page:

Bob Dylan ends 2016 tour in Fort Lauderdale with playful, spirited performance
by Jake Cline - 24 Nov 2016

FORT LAUDERDALE - Bob Dylan’s concert Wednesday night at the Broward Center began and ended with the same songs that opened and closed his previous appearance at the Fort Lauderdale concert hall 19 months earlier: “Things Have Changed,” which earned the songwriter an Academy Award in 2001, and “Stay With Me,” a melancholy Frank Sinatra cover from the 2015 album “Shadows in the Night.”

The similarities didn’t end there. The stage set again put Dylan and his five-piece band beneath vintage-looking klieg lights that showered them in reds and golds. Dylan’s upscale Western duds (white hat, dark suit) may very well have been the same ones he was spotted wearing here in 2015, and they left him once more resembling a cowboy undertaker.

And as has become typical of his concerts in recent years, Dylan spent much of the evening sitting at a piano and none of it holding a guitar. And still, the singer gave his audience anything but the same show. Heck, he hardly gave them the same Bob Dylan.

For his 75th and final scheduled performance of 2016, Dylan appeared relaxed and playful. At times, he even bordered on goofy, striking Elvis Presley-inspired poses while leaning on his microphone stand and breaking into bowlegged, broncobuster shuffles during songs that otherwise would seem to reject them (“Tangled Up in Blue,” “Things Have Changed”). This capriciousness — or was it joy? — cut through everything, with Dylan emphasizing the humor in the darkly comic “Pay in Blood,” feebly denying the inherent joke of “Why Try To Change Me Now” and laughing along with God as a scared-witless Abraham hurries to get “this killing done” on a loose and tumbling “Highway 61 Revisited.”

“Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” the second song in a 21-song set, found Dylan at the piano, to which he would return eight more times and always after doffing his hat and setting it on a nearby amplifier. Why? Who knows. Trying to decode Dylan’s motives can be as pointless as trying to examine the back of your head without a mirror. We should all be so mysterious at 75 years old.

But as abstruse as he’s perceived to be — Google “Dylan and Nobel Prize” to see how easily his persona irritates many — and for all his seemingly impenetrable lyrics, Dylan on Wednesday night repeatedly revealed himself through his songs. And the self he revealed was something of a joker. “Don’t Think Twice,” a jeering “see ya!” whose original 1963 recording has lost none of its folky bite, here sounded sweet-tempered and forgiving, even though Dylan couldn’t resist closing it with a poking bit of Joplin-esque, ragtime piano. “Full Moon and Empty Arms,” from “Shadows in the Night,” was presented as a serenade, even though Dylan, dappled with white light, sang it in the voice of a congested Romeo.

On “Tangled Up in Blue,” meanwhile, Dylan toyed with the original version’s lyrics and form, adding some words, dropping others and making the whole thing sound like a spirited collaboration between Hank Williams and Waylon Jennings. It made you want to holler along, and many in the audience did just that.

More than once, Dylan played at being sinister. As the overhead lights glowed red and the stage curtain looked as if it were being devoured by flames, “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’, ” a witchy New Orleans blues number from the 2009 album “Together Through Life,” offered only more heat. “I love you pretty baby / You’re the only love I’ve ever known,” Dylan growled from the piano. “Just as long as you stay with me / The whole world is my throne.” The declaration held more threat than promise.

Later, a performance of the banjo-accented “Scarlet Town” had the mood of a séance, with Dylan again at the piano and sounding possessed. The usually taut “Love Sick,” however, couldn’t withstand the changes Dylan brought to it, the music going slack the more subdued it got and the singer feigning uncertainty instead of radiating heartbreak. It was the night’s only real disappointment.

Nevertheless, even Dylan’s missteps at this stage of his career can be as thrilling as his achievements. That we still can’t figure him out or fail to be surprised by him after all these years frustrates and delights us. Because whether we’re on the Internet debating the literary merit of “Desolation Row,” calling out and then cursing his name in Stockholm or pondering his every move on a November night in Fort Lauderdale, we believe that at any minute Dylan will let us in on his secrets, that we’re going to understand him the way he has always seemed to understand us. And when he does, we’re going to get that those secrets have been sitting out there in the open all along.

Just listened to the recording.

Great concert! :D
But just as fell in love with the new versions, High Water was de-boom-boom-mancinified and Pay In Blood also went back to its original melody. Well, it's good that there are also recordings of that version.

No, this was a first.
I might do similar ones when the "need" arrives. I'm open to suggestions. :mrgreen:
