Has anyone seen this article about a 1979-80 Dylan documentary being added to the new York film festival? The article says its a global premier with footage of Dylan on stage from that period.

http://www.thewrap.com/kate-winslet-ste ... al-lineup/


"Three documentaries will be presented as New York Film Festival special events: Susan Lacy’s “Spielberg,” about the veteran director; Jennifer Lebeau’s “Trouble No More,” which includes rare concert footage from Dylan’s 1979-80 concert tour during his controversial Christian music period; and Susan Froemke’s “The Opera House,” about New York’s Metropolitan Opera House."

Here's Rolling Stone's article about it - http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news ... ff-w499999

The hour-long Trouble No More constitutes lost footage from Dylan's 1979/80 tour during his "born again" phase, with the singer performing in Buffalo and Toronto with an esteemed backing band in support of his Slow Train Coming.

Directed by Jennifer Lebeau, Trouble No More's uncovered footage has all been newly restored, with Luc Sarte-penned sermons read by actor Michael Shannon interspersed throughout the live video. Dylan is rumored to be working on a Bootleg Series release dedicated to his gospel years.

That's why i posted about him selling a huge stockpile
of footage. I'm certain that's going to seriously effect
what bootleg series we see in the future.
What he sold has gone to a place where only people
who actually go to the city its in and can prove they
are dyanologists can even see the material.

Great, I can't wait to see this.

The sermons that will be read by Michael Shannon are written by Luc Sante, a writer who won the Grammy for best album notes for the 1997 reissue of Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music. He also wrote the text for Dust-to-Digital's box set Take Me to the Water: Immersion Baptism in Vintage Music and Photography 1890-1950, a collection Dylan most definitely owns or has listened to, considering the same label's box set Goodbye, Babylon is a known favourite of Dylan's.

This sounds more interesting to me than two straight concerts, the likes of which will most likely be released in their original form one day anyway, perhaps even on the upcoming Bootleg Series release.

So how does one prove they are an official certified Dylanologist?

The first course, Garbology 101, looks a bit nasty though.
It's a prerequisite to most of the other courses.
Heard it weeds a lot of folks outta the curriculum quickly.

A DVD maybe? With some bonus content? Would be nice...

Hopefully we'll see a general release and it won't impede on any complete concerts being released. That would make good news, really crap. All signs are pointing towards the Gospel Years being the next Bootleg release.

From the "When the Heck...BS13 related thread:
Still Go Barefoot wrote:
Trouble No More.
Interesting companion film title in the year we lost Gregg Allman.

Makes sense as its roots thread back to Muddy Waters & Sleepy John Estes, who both undoubtedly influenced a handful of Bob tunes.

From Wikipedia (so it must be true):
Trouble No More" is a variation of "Someday Baby Blues," recorded by Sleepy John Estes in 1935, a song that has been interpreted and recorded by numerous artists. "Muddy Waters calls his "Trouble No More" and Big Maceo titled his "Worried Life Blues." Be that as it may ... they all derive from Sleepy John Estes' 1935 classic "Someday Baby Blues." As he did with "Rollin' Stone," "Rollin' and Tumblin'," "Walkin' Blues," and "Baby Please Don't Go," Muddy Waters took an older country blues and made it into a Chicago blues. Waters also modified the lyrics, using "Someday baby, you ain't gonna trouble, poor me anymore" instead of Estes' "Someday baby, you ain't gonna worry, my mind anymore" (Estes' 1938 version "New Someday Baby" uses "trouble" in place of "worry;" Bob Dylan's 2006 "Someday Baby" uses "trouble, poor me anymore").

The Allman Brothers Band recorded their arrangement of Muddy Waters' "Trouble No More" for their debut album The Allman Brothers Band (1969). A 1971 live recording of the song from the Fillmore East was included on Eat a Peach (1972). Both albums were best sellers (The Allman Brothers Band was certified "Gold," Eat A Peach as "Platinum") and brought "Trouble No More" to a new level of recognition.


Also, another article from today's front page on the film too:


Trouble No More is due to screen during this year's New York Film Festival

A documentary on Bob Dylan is due to screen during the New York Film Festival.

Variety reports that the film Trouble No More, is due to screen during the New York Film Festival.


The Festival has carried a break-down of the film, which is scheduled for Monday, October 2:

“This very special film consists of truly electrifying video footage, much of it thought to have been lost for years and all newly restored, shot at shows in Toronto and Buffalo on the last leg of the ’79-’80 tour (with an amazing band: Muscle Shoals veteran Spooner Oldham and Terry Young on keyboards, Little Feat’s Fred Tackett on guitar, Tim Drummond on bass, the legendary Jim Keltner on drums and Clydie King, Gwen Evans, Mona Lisa Young, Regina McCrary and Mary Elizabeth Bridges on vocals) interspersed with sermons written by Luc Sante and beautifully delivered by Michael Shannon.”

The film is directed by Jennifer Lebeau and runs just shy of an hour.

In connected news, Pitchfork notes that there’s a companion book coming, too: Trouble In Mind: Bob Dylan’s Gospel Years – What Really Happened, and you can find some further info about that over on the book’s Amazon page.

Yes that's exactly what I was wondering! Come to think of it, why not include a DVD in the new Bootleg Edition? :D that would be fantastic wouldn't it

Like every other episode in the life of Bob Dylan, the “born again” period that supposedly began with the release of Slow Train Coming (1979) and supposedly ended with Shot of Love (1981) has been endlessly scrutinized in the press. Less attention has been paid to the magnificent music he made. This very special film consists of truly electrifying video footage, much of it thought to have been lost for years and all newly restored, shot at shows in Toronto and Buffalo on the last leg of the ’79-’80 tour (with an amazing band: Muscle Shoals veteran Spooner Oldham and Terry Young on keyboards, Little Feat’s Fred Tackett on guitar, Tim Drummond on bass, the legendary Jim Keltner on drums and Clydie King, Gwen Evans, Mona Lisa Young, Regina McCrary and Mary Elizabeth Bridges on vocals) interspersed with sermons written by Luc Sante and beautifully delivered by Michael Shannon. More than just a record of some concerts, Trouble No More is a total experience.

Looks great. I think the gospel era is in for a reassessment. I missed the whole thing. I'm kind of turned off by bible thumping zealots, so I ignored the whole era.
But after hearing some of the stuff from that time, and the terrific backup singers he had then, I'm eager to see this piece.

How can it even scrape the surface being only 59 minutes long, and including a bunch of sermons written and delivered by someone else? Nobody wants that.
