In my opinion Brixton 1995 was one of Bob's best shows ever. And now somebody uploaded all songs from this great show:

http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p ... 5C227E14F5

This show is a real standout. Perhaps the very best of 1995. The performances are exceptional, with surprising arrangements and beautiful vocals. So much more soulful than any other performance from '95. It's difficult to pick highlights from this set, since every song is a highlight. But if you want highlights, here they are: Crash On The Levee; Shelter From The Storm; Mr Tambourine Man; Joey; I Shall Be Released; Rainy Day Woman.

What do you think?

Honestly the whole show is a treasure. Thanks for the link.
Though i must say that Crash on the Levee is astounding and maybe my favorite from the night.

That hands-free Senor is one of my favorite things ever, it's too mindblowing to even describe.

Heh, I agree with everything you said except this. '95 is loaded with other soulful performances... 3/11 Prague, 3/30 Brixton, 6/21 Philly, 12/14 NYC, and 12/17 Philly all bleed like a motherfucker, just as hard as 3/31 Brixton.

Just wanted to echo most of everyone else's comments. Recently I had to clear out a LOT of space from my portable MP3 player, and this is one of the 13 live Bob concerts that I'm seeing is still on there. I was just blown away by the performances when I first heard them. This is the rare concert in which even his boring songs sound good.

Joey is a monstrous performance. Love the 'shut the f___ up' wave at the beginning of the song.

Pretty sure that was Prague, March 11.

Perhaps my favorite NET year. The London shows were brilliant. Berkeley, May 26 is another gem. :wink:

You could only ever do a "Man in the Long Black Coat" like the one from Prague baked out of your head with fever.
