Date: Mon, 16 Oct 1995 15:43:26 GMT From: Tim Beacham (tb@NET-CONNECT.NET) Subject: review of Thibodaux Here is my review for the local paper: LET'S KEEP IT BETWEEN US THIBODAUX--- Perhaps it was not well promoted. Maybe they just didn't hear about it. It could be that no one expects very much from Bob Dylan these days. But to the 1700 or so fans who did know, October 15, 1995 will be an evening to tell the grandchildren about. Bob Dylan played to a two-thirds capacity crowd at the Thibodaux Civic Center Sunday night and although promoters had to resort to giving away free tickets at the door to help fill the auditorium, Dylan gave it his all. Representatives from every age group rolled with Dylan and his four piece band as they played a 15 song, two hour set of hits and obscurities from Dylan's career of 34 years. Dylan and company took the stage at 8:30 and never lost a step throughout the show. From a revamped rocking version of "Drifter's Escape" from the 1968 release John Wesley Harding to the final encore of "Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35", Dylan held the small auditorium wide-eyed and smiling. A young fan of 11, who was attending her first Dylan show, laughed and nodded eagerly when I asked her if she liked the show, then turned and sang along with Dylan on "Mr. Tambourine Man." One ecstatic woman dancing next to me at the foot of the stage during "Watching the River Flow" said of Dylan's humble presence, "It makes you want to cook for him." Dylan's band of minstrels, John Jackson, Bucky Baxter, Winston Watson and Tony Garnier proved that playing with Zimmy over the past few years on the "Never Ending Tour" leads to a perfecting of their craft unparalleled by non one. Loose and enjoying their jobs as Dylan's sidemen, the band provided the perfect vehicle for Dylan to display his variety of skills as musician and songwriter. Dylan traded licks with Jackson on and off but took control of lead guitar for the majority of the performance. Thirty years of playing puts you in the driver's seat. Dylan' playing and singing have not seen better days. He may not have the most beautiful voice but he undoubtedly has the most profound. Although largely electric, an acoustic set, accompanied by stand-up bass and mandolin, demonstrated Dylan's undying ability to hold a crowd at bay with his words. "Masters of War," a 1960s-penned condemnation of military agression, rang true for these times as Dylan sang with subtle poison in his voice. And yes, you knew what he was singing about.
