Jokerman ----------------------- 13. Like a rolling stone 14. It ain't me babe Duration: 105 minutes gross, or 7 quarters of an hour for our friends in the Dutch press :-) Overall, a very enjoyable concert even if it did take Bob a little bit to get fully warmed up, however since this was my first show in almost two years I don't have the comparison of recent shows to go on. For the curious, he played guitar on 3-6 and 9-14, harmonica only on the others except for 14 where we got both (but not at the same time!). I have to agree with what people have been saying about Bob's guitarless mannerisms - for the first song Bob looked like a chronic myopic searching for his misplaced spectacles:-) Leads were being taken more and more by Bob as the show progressed - has this been usual of late? Highlights for me were the duel with JJ at the end of Mobile, Lenny Bruce (I think he got through it all, but am open to correction), a wonderfully eardrum-challenging God Knows, a very well done What Was It..., and even Disease sounded refreshing. Oh yes, Simple Twist was great too with its marvellously effective understated singing. LARS didn't do a whole lot for me and the acoustic numbers were pretty standard fare. To summarize, it was fantastically enjoyable and I'm looking forward to more of the same tonight. I won't be posting on tonight's show though, as I'm away tomorrow for a fortnight (happily coinciding with the tour close in Dublin next week!), but with luck I may manage to scrounge some net access from someone. There were no flowers in evidence (except my own which fell off on the way in), but I'll still keep my eyes peeled tonight. Phew - my first rmd concert report: I hope it was at least readable. Des

View from the front row...Dylan looking O.K, sounding fantastic. Wearing the blue satin shirt over a white t-shirt, and black waistcoat, sweating profusely after an hour, and black trousers with the stripe and buttons up the sides, and black cuban heels. Said nothing, other than introduced the band before the second encore. seemed to acknowledge someone seating (standing by this time, but this is the only all seater of the U.K. tour) four along from me. The highlights for me were All over now Baby Blue, and Tambourine Man, but mainly watching the concert with no-one between me and him.
