Hold the Fort!

Hold the Fort has more amazing performances then Live '75 does tracks :D

The Baez set on Hold the Fort is spellbinding. I seriously didn't know she could do that.

I love Hold The Fort, but not all of it. Some of the '76 songs don't really cut it for me, especially the few tracks that Dylan isn't on. But it's got great stuff like 'Vincent Van Gogh' and 'Weary Blues From Waiting,' and 'The Sun Is Shining'....not to mention all the Hard Rain classics.

But Live 1975 has absolutely magnificent tracks: 'It Ain't Me, Babe' (which outshines Hold The Fort's more standard acoustic rendition), 'Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall' (also on Hold The Fort in the fantastic Hard Rain slow take, but not as electrifying as this tough blues), 'Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll,' etc.

I do prefer the 1976 'Isis,' and on Hold The Fort Dylan does some great singing on this one.

In general, I still prefer the 1975 Rolling Thunder installment over its follow-up. Neither CD is a legitimate single concert, so I compare them based on the strengths of the songs as they appear.

"Deportee" on Hold the Fort is wonderful.

It's listed here (in two parts) in the A-Z Bootleg list, just scroll down some:

http://www.expectingrain.com/discussion ... php?t=8765

It's a recording from various locations in '76, the second leg of the RTR.
Information here: http://www.bobsboots.com/CDs/cd-h37.html


Fort is a great bootleg, but I'm partial to the '75 RTR tour. Some songs were done better in '76, and also included alot of songs that weren't done in 75 at all, but you can't beat the '75 recordings, and the Bootleg series is a great compilation.

The only thing I would have liked to be different would be if the Bootleg Series had been one complete show.
Fortununately you can find bootlegs that are complete (or close to complete) that are in good quality.

I can't decide... I love both of them.

One thing however - there are some songs on Hold the fort.. that also appear on Hard Rain, just different performances. They are very close, but I can see why the ones on Hard Rain were chosen over the others, the performances are just a little tighter. I think Lay Lady Lay is the same performance.

My little Best of Rolling Thunder compilation has five numbers from Live 75, two from Fort Worth plus three others so I lay a half-hearted vote for Live 75.

I'm surprised that 'You're a Big Girl Now' from Hold the Fort hasn't been mentioned yet. One of Bob's most beautiful performances.

Amen to that... possibly my very favorite live Dylan performance. The band's too... and the arrangement is gutsy as hell.

However, neither album features WHEN I PAINT MY MASTERPIECE. For shame. A dirty gondola, indeed.

Yeah, 'When I Paint My Masterpiece' was great on the '75 tour. I really think they should release in higher quality the soundtrack music from Renaldo And Clara. There's some EXCELLENT stuff on there, both concert and rehearsal tracks, including that rowdy 'Masterpiece' that opens the film, with Dylan in that weird plastic mask.

I prefer "Hold The Fort".

Live 1975 is just a "mixed-up confussion" of many performances from many concerts, but "Hold The Fort" is an entire concert. Apart, the 1976 leg of the Rolling Thunder Revue is my favourite.

This thread is like a cemetery.

Most of the users haven't opened their accounts in years!!!

A person haven't visited the site since 2007: 11 years without entering Expecting Rain. I can only imagine the worst.

What do you think about the Going Guam one ? I am a bit disappointed, the second CD recording has a really crappy sound...

I can't say I love the bootleg, but I find it enjoyable. Of course there are a lot of crappy takes, but others are very good, and some are unique.

I don't think so about the second CD. It includes great versions of Tom Thumb's Blues, Rita Mae, Idiot Wind, Lay Lady Lay, Mozambique, but I like it especially for the version of Elmore James' song "The Sun Is Shining".
