  1. OOHYEAH ! My summary of Bob Dylan I have said so much about loving Dylan’s singing , songwriting , poetry , self will , humility and brilliance across the board , but we can have all these gifts and without hard-work and faith you would be just a money hungry 0. All these songs are a good example of what he could do & much more to come. I know Dylan is’ t the 2ND COMING BUT FEW ARE AS HARDWORKING a servant and loved as a real deal !!

  2. Check out Dont think twice from Cardiff 23-9-2000, the harp solo was worth the price of the ticket on its own but the whole show is amazing and there is a full audience dvd available with great sound.

  3. How great is bob!!!!his greatness never fails to amaze me!!!even after 30 years of being a huge fan!! there are so many incredible versions of his songs!! i love the prague Simple twist…, ,but for my money an even more amazing version is from melbourne,19th august 1998,words fail me on this version,just WOW!!!!
