If I'm not fractiously wrong Dylan is already in his Koella rehab period.

My "Holy Grail" would be a one-time only reunion with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers WITH The Queens Of Rhythm performed at Madison Square Garden and it would be televised on American Masters on PBS or maybe HBO.
And they do a killer 'When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky'.

Re-release of every studio work from the beginning up through (and including) Street Legal with the current touring band. Re-arrangements left up to the discretion of Bob and His Band...

I think it would prove quite interesting.

Except bobs voice is shot. It would have to be a live album. Which they probably get thru the Net throughout the years. The early net years.

I keep hearing that Bob's voice is "shot" but listen to Modern Times, Together Through Life, and Christmas In the Heart and he sounds fine, just a bit deeper.

I prefer the vocals of the current old bluesman to what preceded Before the Flood.

Exactly right Untrodden Path. Its irritating how some people act like his voice is about to go out any minute. What a bunch of hooey.

....Most people's voices do become more rough and deep with age. I don't get mjeffs comment that he could do a live version, but not studio. Huh?

What I meant is if you want reworked versions of the older songs.. get early net versions when he could sing still. To rework his old classic from the 60's and put it out as a album not a live album would be a disaster imho. At least if it was not in studio you could say he was older and it was live. If he tries it in the studio.. no excuses. And anyway though someone might want it. It ain't gonna happen. The NET stuff probably will on video and cd one day. But a reworking of his older albums from start to finish in the studio. IMHO. Zero chance.

Though it would be freakin' awesome if he did release updated versions of his older songs, it would feel too much like he's hanging up the towels on those songs, and he will never re-work them or shape them to fit his currant inspirations. I don't want the songs to stop evolving. That's why we all love Dylan, he doesn't have 300+ songs, he has a like a million.

As for the holy grail, I'm happy exploring his career. They'll probably be releasing an official bootleg series once a year long after Dylan is gone, and I'll be content with that. In the meantime we have the bootlegs.

I would love to see a high quality high definition video of his live performance of Abandoned Love at the Bitter End in 1975.

I have it, but it's not that interesting and the quality is shit. If they came out with it on DVD or Blu-Ray I would give it a shot.

I'd love to have a nice recording of "Pretty Boy Floyd" from December 1988 @ The Bridge Benefit in Oakland, CA. Also that duet with Willie Nelson from Comstock Park, MI, August 2004 - "I Shall Be Released". Also "Forgetful Heart" from October 5, 2009 in Seattle. It would be great to see that version of "When You Gonna Wake Up" from his Saturday Night Live performance officially released as well.

I would love to hear some Salt Lake City '76 as well. Footage too would be outstanding, but I'd settle for some prime audio.

Also, the session footage from TOOM. Or any fantastic session footage from the 60's or 70's.

My original Holy Grail was the New York Sessions of BOTT but I have found that since. 8)

And Renaldo and Clara for a minute, but I was sort of let down by the quality of the copy I have. Performances are still great though.

I've yet to see VOJ live which represents something of a holy grail for me.

On a more populist note, I would do many bad things to hear the unrecorded album Dylan played for friends post-BOTT. Has to be some gold there...

Bob Dylan's Anthology Of Folk Music comprising 4 to 6 CD's of him playing all his choicest American, British and Canadian folk songs.

Hoping, of course, that his voice and guitar chops are still (somewhat) up to snuff.
