Date: Sun, 1 Oct 1995 11:28:02 -0600 From: Richard & Pam Russell (richruss@GATE.NET) Subject: Dickie & Dylan in Tampa NEWSFLASH! In Tampa Saturday night, 9/30/95, Dickie Betts joins Dylan for half the show, including an incredible version of Seeing The Real You at Last. For the first encore, Betts AND Dylan sing the Allman Brothers' hit "Ramblin' Man" -- with Dylan taking one verse by himself ("Them Delta women think the world of me..."). That song alone was worth the price of admission! Later, after the first encore, as they were leaving the stage Dylan danced a little jig, grinned at Betts, waved around at the audience and ambled off. Dylan performed a total of THREE encores (four songs): Ramblin' Man, Highway 61; It Ain't Me and Rainy Day Women. I'll post the full set list later, if someone doesn't beat me to it. Richard Russell
Date: Mon, 2 Oct 1995 17:20:45 GMT From: "Keith C. Brewster" (fs293@CLEVELAND.FREENET.EDU) Subject: Tampa 9/30 - Review Thought I would give my personal review of Saturdays show in Tampa. I won't post the set list because it has already been posted by Bill Pagel and I'm to lazy to do it. The show was held at the USF Sun Dome, which is a domed basketball arena. It holds about 10,000 when configured for a concert. There were approx. 5,000 in attendance for the show. This created a lot of empty space in the upper portions of the arena which seemed to cause a slight echo on the vocals, at least from where I was sitting. Bob was wearing his gold lame' shirt, black pants with strip down the leg; no hat, no glasses. Here is some thoughts on the songs that stick out in my mind, 2 days after the fact. Watchtower:: Still in the number 3 slot. This is where the concert really kicked into gear. Version similar to the R-N-R HoF show. They really have this song on auto pilot, very good and hard rockin. Man the Long Black Coat:: A spooky, haunting musical arrangement with a deep, heavy bass that entered through your chest and really grabbed hold. Bob sang in a smooth, flowing voice; a really great version, the best I've heard; although I've only heard 2 other versions. One of the highlites of the show. Silvio:: Song rocked from the opening and just kept building. By the end they were REALLY ROCKING. Mr. Tambourine Man (a):: Crowd let out a roar when Bob sang first line. I wasn't really into the song until the end when Bob pulled out the harmoncia. With his guitar hanging from his neck, one hand holding harmonica and mic, and one hand waving free he played a great run that started slowly and kept building to the finish. Obviously 5 Believers:: With Dicky Betts. This was an outstanding version of that song. Crowd was rocking, band was rocking, guitars wailing. This was the point where the concert started to turn into a guitar fest. Ramblin' Man:: With Dicky Betts. (1st encore) The crowd roared when Betts played the opening guitar rif to this song. Bob and Dicky sang together on the opening verse, Dicky sang alone in the middle, and both together again to finish the song. The whole band singing the chorse throughout. Betts played an awesome lead guitar solo in the middle, followed by an equally great solo by John Jackson. John was very gracious in allowing Betts plenty of room for guitar solos and leads during all there numbers together, they both appeared to be having a great time playing off of each other. A guitar feast extraordinaire. It ain't me Babe:: (a) (2nd encore) Bobs playing gave the song somewhat of a banjo sound. A very uplifting sound. With the band still playing, Bob takes off his guitar, strolls back to pick up a harmonica off of one of the amps, walks up and removes the mic and starts to play an incredible 3-4 minute harmonica run. He was really playing with everything had. He must have sold his sole to the harmonica god. That ended the 2nd encore. I felt that the show was over right there, nothing could have topped that. If the house lights had come on I would have been completly satisfied, but that was not to be. Rainy Day Woman:: (3rd encore) Betts returns. Bob only sang 2 verses of the song with the crowd shouting out Every-Body-Must-Get-Stoned with fists pumping into the air. The rest of the song was an all out guitar battle, absolutely screaming. It felt like they were going to tear the roof off the place. Concert ended almost exactly 2 hours after its start. A truly fantastic show. Having Dicky Betts sit in really turn the intensity level up a notch. I hope they bring him along for the Orlando show on Thursday.
Date: Mon, 2 Oct 1995 19:48:22 -0400 From: Patrick K Templeman (jakstrw1@GROVE.UFL.EDU) Subject: 9/30/95 tape I was just wondering if anyone had or is planning on getting a copy of the 9/30/95 tape of Dylan with Dickey Betts in Tampa. I was at the show and it was a good one. Dylan played hard all night, taking solos whenever he could. The highlights for me were a cool, rocking Silvio; a beautiful acoustic Tambourine Man with Bob's voice sounding very sensitive and Bob adding some great harmonica to the mix; an amazing She Belongs To Me with Dickey adding a great solo to the great song and especially Bob really nailing his solo; Rambling Man was a nice touch (with Bob even singing a verse, and Dickey, well, being Dickey); Dickey tearing it up on Highway 61; and Rainy Day Women providing a great closer. I loved the show and would really love to get a tape of it. If anyone can help me out, it would be much appreciated.
Date: Sun, 8 Oct 1995 21:02:33 -0400 From: Ken Paterson (kenp@INNET.COM) Subject: 9/30/95 Concert in Tampa My first Post to this news group: Dylan was just unreal at the USF Sundome on September 30. He was actually interacting with the crowd. He said thank you a few times; even introduced his band. His lead playing was not too out of the ordinary, although Dicky Betts' presence did something for Bob's bravado in that respect. They played Ramblin' Man together. Betts was back up on about 4-5 other songs. During Highway 61 Revisited Bob stalked the stage with harmonica and mike in hand and pounded out some very bluesy sounding harp. I had not heard him play this way EVER. He was like a different person. The last three times I saw him were pretty much forgettable. This was totally out of the ordinary. I had read a review in the paper the Friday prior to the concert about his set in south Florida the weekend before. The reviewer said he was at his best, so I went in there with high hopes, not to be disappointed. Much to my astonishment, a fan who had purchased a book of Bob's sketches at the concession stood before the stage after, I think, the first encore as Bob was walking off and handed it up to Bob with a pen as if to request autograph. Damn if Bob didn't reach down and sign it! I was mere yards away from this and immediately reached for my pen, but alas Bob walked off stage leaving a handful of us fruitlessly waving pens in the air. :-( I couldn't believe it. So close, but yet, so far! Anyway here's the set list in case someone was there with a DAT. I would like a copy if you ever hear of it. All Along The Watchtower Silvio Mr. Tambourine Man Masters of War I Don't Believe You Obviously 5 Believers I've Seen The Real You At Last Crashing the Levy Ramblin Man (with Dickie Betts) She Belongs to Me Highway 61 Revisited To the best of my recollection. 2 hour concert, but I guess that's a standard for Bob. Can't believe he played Crashing the Levy? I can't believe he played Obviously 5 Believers!! I understand he played "Crashing" for the first time ever in concert in March of this year. Is this true? Security was fairly tight evidenced by my being accosted by a member of the crew asking for the film from my camera (I wasn't even using a flash). He didn't get it and I later found it did not turn out at all anyway (maybe should have used a flash). A photographer I ain't. There was a young lady there who was taking some snaps with a zoom point and shoot model, and I gave her my card asking to trade prints. As I now know mine didn't turn out I hope she or someone she knows will read this and get hold of me. Thanks to the "big guy in the Woodstock Tee shirt" who helped me out of the security/film escapade. I see in "ON The Tracks" magazine a well known photographer is selling some really nice prints for $650.00 each. "Steal a little and they throw you in jail. Steal a lot and they make you King." Anyone know of a reasonable photo source? Ken Paterson Alan Light said about Bob Dylan - "He is hidden in plain sight."
