Setlist, our thoughts & some audio:
I’m A Fool To Want You:
|1||Things Have Changed||4/6. Great start.. Not a surprise, tight band, good vocal..||4|
|2||She Belongs To Me||4/6. Solid version. Vocal lacking a bit punch.||4|
|3||Beyond Here Lies Nothin’||5/6 Lovely performance. Dylan more alive, band rising.. Sexton shining||4|
|4||The Night We Called It A Day||5/6 Great performance overall. AND a debut!!||4|
|5||Duquesne Whistle||3/6 Dylan lacking energy, band performing good.||5|
|6||Why Try To Change Me||4/6 Another debut!! (Shadows) Lively Dylan, good band. Exciting.||4|
|7||Pay In Blood||4/6 Solid PIB.
.. another politician pumping out the piss.. indeed.
|8||I’m A Fool To Want You||5/6 The Shadows material are great so far. Band & Bobby shining.||4|
|9||Tangled Up In Blue||5/6 Great 2015 version of TUIB! Lovely. Bob’s vocal loosing his edge last ~3min..||5|
|10||High Water (For Charley Patton)||4/6 Slow start.. nice finish.||5|
|11||Full Moon and Empty Arms||4/6 Nice perfomance. Again Shadows material shining.||4|
|12||Early Roman Kings||3/6 Jeeze.. bright lights on stage. OK performance of an OK song.
Some nice licks from Sexton.
|13||Come Rain or Come Shine||3/6 (shadows outtake). Surprise, another debut.. short.. BUT this time neither the band nor Dylan convinced me.
My initial grade was 2.. but listening to the audio today, it sounds better.
|14||Spirit On The Water||3/4 Solid, good, yes, .. but..||5|
|15||Scarlet Town||6/6 Here we are!! FANTASTIC version! Crisp vocal.. no shit. Band shining. They really nailed this one.
|16||All Or Nothing At All||3/6 (Shadows outtake) Yet another debut! But again didn’t convince me.||4|
|17||Long And Wasted Years||4/6 Can’t go wrong on this one. Not a Great LAWY, but still..||5|
|18||Autumn Leaves||6/6 WONDERFUL version. Everthing clicked, band, vocal, audience.. my body started shaking..
Best performance today.
|19||Blowin’ In The Wind||4/6 Solid.. as always.||5|
|20||Love Sick||5/6 Slow start (3/6), but grew to a spectacular finish. Great arrangement.. Brilliant band performance.
Dylan shining in the last couple of minutes.
