bob carried them folkies for the longest time and they thought they owned him. sometimes you cant be too good. like lebron.
(now that i think of it, that java blues album was probably done in bearsville
or shangri la (both built by bob))


You get something that's glowing hot and it'll send it's heat to those that are needing it, and can use it. Bob used it. If he had come along in 1956 or 1966, his future is unknown. And to his credit, he had the goods to deliver, no question. But he needed that heat.

I like the album version, though it's not my favorite on Back Home by a long shot.

The question of what live performance is good is interesting, I haven't yet heard one that really does it for me. Not on Hard Rain though that one is okay.

newport '65 is pretty ace, even though he looks nervous as hell for the first half of it

1. Fair enough. But be careful not to play it at your current job (if you like your job) so your boss can hear it. Unless your boss has a good sense of humor. :wink:


2. It dawned on me this song is kind of like the Animals' song that goes:

We gotta get outta this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get outta this place
Girl there's a better life for me and you

When I was a senior in college, having been cooped up for three years, we loved that song.


3. Another thing I noticed when I was out walking just now. I pulled up the album. Subterranean Homesick Blues (track 1) and Maggie's Farm (track 3) sound real similar at the very beginning, before Bob starts singing.

I really like the rumbling 2002-2005 arrangements. One of his best and most important for sure.

I agree about the 2002-2005 versions. Thanks marker for posting that rocking version from 1981.

Interesting ending on this version of Maggie's listed on today's front page.
Frejus, France 1989 with GE Smith.

I think I constantly take for granted how long many of Bob's current band members have been with him!!
But lately, I've been going back and finding the first shows of all members and finding most of the band has now been with him 10 years or more. Tony has been with him for 26 years!!

Charlie's first show was way back in 99 and it's actually a terrific concert. He joined for the opening show of the 99 Summer tour and it was a very small venue. Needless to say, he rocks throughout...You can tell he was gonna fit in perfectly from this rendition. The guitars are so textured and rich, I miss that rockabilly thing he had going in the late 90's...

June 5 1999

As a bonus here's a really great video from earlier in the year with Bucky:

I love the 1993 versions...Dylan as the ultimate Rock and Roll Man...this one from the Great Woods boot is a good example (in perfect sound, too): https://www.sendspace.com/file/9zakha


This song has a rare example of a constant lyric revision that I don't care for, the original's "she's 68 but says she's 54" reminded me of actual people I had met...the substitution of 24 makes it pretty silly, indeed.

When he's on the song still kicks ass, though.

Wow!! Terrific version Smoke, thanks so much for that....
Haven't listened to a 93 show in a while, I'll have to dig that show out of the closet:)

Posted in the Other Artists area, a performance of Maggie's Farm by David Bowie that is a real tribute to Dylan as a songwriter and rock influence and to David Bowie as a fantastic performer.

This 1989 performance sounds influenced by Dylan's version on his "Real Live" album.

Thanks for the link Enola Gay Guitar.

I keep going back to the Isle of Wight version off
Another Self Portrait. Ramshackle and grooving... Think it’s my favourite.
Love the “no more” backing vocals.
