The very best performance of Just Like a Woman:

Pure joy, tears of joy.. What a man.

This gig saw the last rendition of "Mr Tambourine Man".

Also, the very best rendition of John Brown:

A la "It's All Good". I love it.

Yeah, that John Brown version was great! They also played an one-off version of Queen Jane during that tour, also in a very promising new arrangement. His voice, however, somewhat ruined these perfomances between 2006 and 2011/12 IMHO. This John Brown is not that bad, but mostly he sang in that breathless barking voice we hear in the Just Like A Woman performance. He is clearly enjoying himself here, but "the very best performance" of this song? Well, no... The IOT makes things even worse. Thank god he put that thing away.

Interestingly enough, a recording of this show in Carcassonne never surfaced as far as I know.

That IS good Henry, thx.
My ears don’t usually perk up for Hwy 61, either.
So...nice!
Anyone know the exact show that was?

The debut of Ain't Talkin' in NYC '06 is still the best performance of this song in my opinion

^i agree.

My 2009/2010 shows (one each, I can never swing multiples) were among the best shows I’ve seen from 1989 to the present. 2006/2007 encounters were among the worst. But the recording from a day or two later in Madison WI (2006) is one my favorite NET shows, period.

A lot of wandering in the wilderness during this timeframe, with far fewer gems than in the previous 5 year span. Perhaps exponentially so. Still, there are always great moments to be found. I actually did a comp in 2011 that wasn’t half bad. I’ll try to repost if anyone wants to hear it.

That Just Like A Woman is basically Bob pissing around and having a bit of a laugh.

I've struggled to get into this period, especially 2006-2009; it seems to have been a time when all of Bob's various tics and eccentricities piled up and began to overwhelm the music (his vocals, the organ, his lead guitar playing, not facing the audience, etc.). However, I think things started to improve when Charlie came back in fall 2009.

Yes. This rings true.
There were moments, more than shows.
That 2009 Orpheum mini-residency, with
Charlie returning to action, began to get some of it back (for me).
Unlike some, also really appreciated 2011, too.

Just guessing, but believe at least the audio is from Lewiston Maine 2008.

In '06/'07 Nettie Moore always seemed to be a show stopper. ..Had the pleasure to be at the Nov. 11 Boston show in Agganis Arena & it's one of the few songs from any show I've been to that I can still recall.... both visually and given feelings.

EDIT ACTION: Memory is a funny thing .... Twas 10/5/07 Manchester NH Nettie Moore performance. ... Felt funny after I posted and checked the setlist & it wasn't even played 11/11/06. ... Not the first time I've mixed those two shows for each other.
An actual memory from 11/11/06 is having upper level stands seats and after a couple songs went to the help desk and stated that my lovely date feels nauseous from the steep seating and if it was possible to change. .. LoL, they actually gave us general admission floor access & was astonished and very much grateful it worked. ... Compliments to my date for pinching her nose and playing up the nausea act. ... Still with her & that's at least part of the reason why ;)

https://youtu.be/zSApUDl5m8k - Nettie Moore '06 (believe this is from the NYC show)

....

In '07 I also caught Mr. Dylan for one of the funnest shows I've seen in Florence Ma. in a park which literally had metal foldout chairs for seating. ... Twas on my b-day as well. ... LoL, first and last birthday I looked forward to since my 21st.

Here's a highlight from that one ...

http://www.notdarkyet.org/070626grain.mp3 - Every Grain Of Sand 6/26/07 styles

....

In 2009 vaguely remember seeing him in Pawtucket RI. Recall separating from my date (had some silly fight about parking or something before going in) for a couple songs & he played a great Ain't Talkin' which floored me & set my mind right for the rest of the evening. ... Helpful reminder that it's simply best to keep thy mouth shut & her mood positive... especially with mundane issues. ... Dam gardener.

https://youtu.be/VsWsrxrPseQ - Ain't Talkin' '09 styles

.....

Lastly, I saw the final show of the year at Mashantucket CT in 2010. ... Opening song was Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking & remember hairs on my neck standing in a tingle during the "every day you got to pray for guidance every day you have to give yourself another chance," verse.
... Also remember fans rushing the stage during the encore and being shocked because it seemed like a flat crowd almost every song beforehand.

http://www.notdarkyet.org/101127change.mp3 - Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking 11/27/10

.....

Welp, those are the highlights of my 2006- 2011 appreciations..... for shows I attended anyways. Still a lot more with the recordings.
.... Big fan of the Sun West Arizona 2006 show. ... Scored a copy of that one in a parking lot of one show or another along the line. ... The walking dude selling em recommended that one in particular along with NYC '06 & also slid me Italy & Dublin from 2005 during the same exchange. ... All great times as well :)

Columbus Ohio 8/13/06 show

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=88771&hilit=2006+Columbus+Ohio

Unfortunately could not find the easy way (via YouTube etc), but this show is certainly a highlight worth much appreciation.
Maggie's Farm has my favorite arrangement ... very melodic & sets itself apart from any other versions.

Lots of other highlights as well.

.....

Here's one track the easy way ....

https://youtu.be/04F-EBt9kzU - New Morning 8/13/06

For those whom bother with the download - Hope you enjoy ... especially if it's your first time hearing.

:)

Just Like A Woman from Cork 06 was spine tingling. Thankfully Soomlos was there.

Although the 2006-2012 period had some real good arrangements and performances, for me it was most of all the barking and awful organ period. Before (especially 1997 onwards) and after, the NET was/is better.

Here's some 2011 (not totally sure on, Forgetful Heart) highlights. ....

https://youtu.be/gLlYnQGR4i8 - Sugar Baby

https://youtu.be/G5ssBSVDL20 - Forgetful Heart

https://youtu.be/BGe88MDxZ_k - Ballad Of A Thin Man

Tis approaches the conclusion of "The Bark Ages" .... which if anything, is to the best fan created Dylan term evah (IMO).
