According to twitter Bob got on stage just about an hour ago, so he’s probably (hopefully) still going. Is 7:30 Mavis’ start time or Bob’s?


Pretty sure 7:30 is Mavis's start time (it is that way tomorrow night in Ames). So if she was done at 8:00, Bob was perhaps ready to go by 8:20. And that would mean that he would finish up a little after 10:00....grave

No question about it.

Mavis starts at 7:30. Bob graces us with his presence at 8:35.

Ah, 8:35. Well, in Vegas, he played for an hour and forty-five minutes. So that would put the final notes of BOATM at about 10:20...grave

Basically reading his comments its just the usual narrow minded viewpoint of the last few albums, if hed have performed one of his own songs however badly the guy would have given it a good write up. Autumn Leaves leaves you with goose pimples if you listen to it properly just like some of the other american songbook stuff.

I don't agree with everything Barefoot says, but can I ask how do you listen to these songs "properly"?

Instead of "properly," one might say "without prejudice" or "with an open mind" or perhaps "while taking into account that one is listening to a performance of an entirely different musical genre, which might sound different from the genre of a song written in another style."
So, to properly listen to a Great American Songbook/Tin Pan Alley/Easy Listening/Jazz Standard/Sinatra-style song, one would begin by assuming it would not sound like Highway 61 or Tangled Up In Blue, and instead accept that Dylan is performing in a completely different genre. If one has decided in advance that one does not enjoy any song ever written in this genre style, it makes it somewhat difficult to appreciate the performance. It might be better for one to simply skip said song, since one's reaction will be, inevitably, disapproval and/or disgust.

But, you know, I'm just guessing that's what he meant by "properly." He could have meant "with red headphones, while standing on one foot, eating a sandwich" for all I know.

Up until the rather stupid comment at the end you did well at explaining what I meant by properly anyway, which means I dont need to bother.

Thanks for sharing. Now that’s speedy service! You guys rock.
Will enjoy and continue to listen, especially as open-mindedly as possible to the standards, as usual.

Listening to it now. ERK is changed back to more to more simple arrangement. And they have made a very strange sounding interlude in LWY.

Thunder is really rocking Link Wray style and seems the audience really gets into it. They should have kept Learning to Fly as finale for the rest of the tour though...

New arrangements are stil fresh and interesting to me and much better than just continuing with the setlists from prvious tours so double thumps up from here.

Agreed.
Such a crazy disposition against the standards.
Loving any new arrangements! Thanks again.

It's amazing how just a simple start-stop addition to Things Have Changed does wonders for it!

I thought there'd be big changes, and how right I was.

One correction: 9. "This Nearly Was Mine" was played, not "Where Is The One"

Best show in 2 years. No doubt. Fun, rip-roaring, reminiscent of 2004, and with boldest arrangements for years, absolutely years.
