Bob Dylan Barcelona 1984

bob dylan barcelona 1984

Probably Dylan’s finest concert since the last night at Earl’s Court three years earlie. The band is now accustomed to Dylan but not jaundiced by endless performances, while Dylan is in excellent voice throughout. At the end of the main set, he is not at all anxious to leave the stage.

Lucinda Williams plays Bob Dylan

Happy birthday Lucinda Williams!

This wonderful artist gets both the calendar post and the video of the day on Alldylan since it’s her 62nd birthday.

Lucinda Williams talks about being influenced by Bob Dylan and his album “Highway 61″ on the debut episode of “The Buddy and Jim Show” with Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale on SiriusXM Outlaw Country:

Lucinda Williams did the Bob Dylan cover “Trying To Get To Heaven” from the Amnesty International tribute album “Chimes of Freedom” celebrating Amnesty International’s 50th year advocating for human rights, here in three audience recorded live performances and the one from the Amnesty album.

Trying to get to heaven (live, 2011), a bit of chatter on the sound, but still great:

Jan 26: Lucinda Williams was born in 1953

lucinda3 Like so many, I discovered Lucinda Williams when she released the fantastic album, Car Wheels On A Gravel Road. I went to the record store (yes, we actually did that in the old days) and bought as many of her albums as I could find. There were four albums before Car Wheels.., great albums, I love them all. Since then I’ve awaited all Lucinda Williams albums with great excitement. She’s always good, most of the time she’s great.
Half an hour of the wonderful Lucinda Williams live at Paradiso Amsterdam (2013):

Mama, take this badge off of me
I can’t use it anymore
It’s gettin’ dark, too dark for me to see
I feel like I’m knockin’ on heaven’s door

Knock, knock, knockin’ on heaven’s door
Knock, knock, knockin’ on heaven’s door
Knock, knock, knockin’ on heaven’s door
Knock, knock, knockin’ on heaven’s door

Video of the day: John Wesley Harding – Making Love To Bob Dylan

screenshot_make_love_bob_dylan

Wesley Stace (born 22 October 1965) is a folk/pop singer-songwriter and author who has used the stage name John Wesley Harding. Under his real name, he has written three novels. He is also a novelist, university teacher and the curator of Wesley Stace’s Cabinet of Wonders.

The stage name is most likely taken from the Dylan album with the same name (almost…). He has now gone back to using his real name when making music.

Todays very funny and sweet video is from 2012, and the topic is: Is it possible to make love to a Bob Dylan record?

Directed By: Matt Grady / Starring: Janeane Garofalo & John Wesley Harding
