For me..

If you want to explain the why, the what, the how, the where, the when, the it, the be, the reason for Bob Dylan, it's:

Emotion. The moment.

It's been a long time since the BD has given us something this razors edged.

The harmonica solo at the end of Mr. Tambourine Man (1966) that's shown in the last scene of I'm Not There. No poetic turn of phrase, Dylan's singing voice does not appear, but it's the most beautiful moment of his music making, the definition of transcendence, the singular LIVE Dylan moment for me.
If at the end our time here, the soul does leave the body for some Great Unknown, and we are allowed to choose our own personal soundtrack for the moment, this harmonica solo would be fine by me.

Definitely a BIG favorite of mine, although I wouldn't say it captures some essence. It captures one of the Dylans.

For me it has to be the Judas moment. It gives me a great feeling when I have my headphones in and hear him say "I don't believe you. You're a liar. Play it x loud!" And then goes in the a great rendition of Like a Rolling Stone.

I think it's any time Bob plays a really rare song, like 'Romance In Durango' or 'Million Dollar Bash'. You get a few moments of silence while the audience tries to figure out what's being played, then some excited murmurs of 'Is that.....?', and then a massive roar when they recognize the lyrics.

No mention yet of the electric set at Newport 65. Surely a contender...

Shelter from the Storm from Prague 1995.
A bootleg with talking Czechs, Bob in his "forgotten" phase with the flu on top. Of course the song is played differently than the album version. It begins nicely, the vocals get better and better and then Bob breaks through the ceiling and the light shines down from heaven. That's the track that converted me from casual to sERious fan. (Thanks to belleseb for his compilation series, btw)
