Hardly an obscure concert, but I'm sitting at my desk getting some work done, put on the Crystal Cat in the background, "You're A Big Girl Now" is playing right now, and I'm having one of those "shout from the rooftop" moments! :wink:

Does anyone here still listen to this from time to time? I would've liked to have a few additional personal favorites on the setlist, but with great renditions like the above, "Accidentally Like A Martyr", "Mutineer", "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall", "Watching The River Flow", "Tombstone Blues", how can I complain? Also, the sound quality on this boot is just perfect for my ears.

A popular, much loved show by many... for all the reasons you listed.

And more!

mmhmm, love it! The knockin' on heaven's door at the end is great too. First concert that got me into the fall 2002 stuff.

It's on the A-Z list. The date is October 7, so you'll have to scroll down a bit.

Maybe it's the same but you should get the one in the crystal cat section.

Thanks to everyone for sharing their thoughts. I'm gonna go ahead and grab the rest of the Crystal Cats from that leg while they're still on the A-Z. I had downloaded the Kansas City one before but got turned off from the whole concert because Bob botched a crucial line on a crucial song, "Accidentally Like A Martyr."

Once again, though, that Red Bluff boot sounds so stellar -- truly one that could be an official release with no further mastering whatsoever.

Also carries the prize for most clueless fan comment ever preserved on tape:

"Is that Raawwbbie Raawwbertson playing guitar, or just a lookalike??" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Beautifully smooth sound but if I had to have one boot from that leg, it would be the Crystal Cat St. Paul. Sound not quite as perfect (still brilliant though) but the performance is up a notch for me. The Soomlos Fairfax is also a must have for Charlie's last (with Larry) show.

A prime example of why they don't allow fans to carry firearms to concerts... in some countries that offense could be punishable by death without a trial?

Time to slay another sacred cow. Fall 2002 wasn't that good.

Summer 2002 was one of the worst legs of the entire NET, and even band-aids like Mutineer, et al. can't stop the hemorrhaging. Once you get past the covers and Summer Days orgies, you're left with the same old garbage performances of "classic" material. Listen to My Back Pages, I Shall Be Released, Like A Rolling Stone, etc. It's hard to believe that the original poster cited this Hard Rain as a highlight--Bob struggles to overcome a bout of upsinging only to take his foot off the accelerator and coast through the rest of the song. Gee, sounds like the same old 2001-2002 crap.

The Zevon covers and stuff were great but when you look at the shows (and year) as a whole, it's obvious that they, along with the switch to keyboard, were rather desperate attempts to salvage an increasingly bad show.

Sexton did look like Robertson on this tour.

Have we ever seen the two together? Hmmmmmm......very suspi.....how do you spell that word. Supicous? (Can we combine sus....whatever and the word delicious into one awesome new word? Suslicious-it means curiously or strangely delicious.*


*I will trademark that word. Don't steal my intelletual property.

A great leg, to be sure, and Red Bluff is the bees knees!

Yes, he orchestrated Zevon's impending death just so that he could play these covers and help salvage the show. :lol:

I've always wished Boom Boom Mancini would have gotten more than a one-off. It's a fun song.

The Fall 2002 wasn't that bad in my eyes. The band hit a groove and road it out. The shows were consistent and fun. If it hadn't been for the upsinging, some of them would rank among Bob's very best.

What a nitwit you are. Does the word "coincidental" mean anything to you?

You know, come to think of it Robertson would work well with Bob's recent band.

The best Dylan show of the '00s, period. I haven't heard a single one that rivals it. The performances are spirited, the setlist is spectacular, the band is at the peak of their powers, and the recording is absolutely unbelievable.
