Bob Dylan: 7 essential videos from the 70’s

bob dylan 1976

 Being on tour is like being in limbo. It’s like going from nowhere to nowhere.
~To John Rockwell, Jan 1974

Rimbaud has been a big influence on me. When I’m on the road and want to read something that makes sense to me, I go to a bookstore and read his words.
~To Neil Hickey, Sep 1976

..maybe, the end of the first Rolling Thunder tour. Or the second Rolling Thunder tour – at least I was doing the best I could in the environment I was in… And now I’m also doing the best I can within this environment
~to Craig McGregor, March 1978

I played acoustical songs on that band tour in ‘74, but I pushed too hard. I played acoustical guitar on the Rolling Thunder tours, but I had to push too hard. And for my type of style I can’t really afford to push too hard, because I lose the reason behind the song. If you heard me sittin’ in a room singing I wouldn’t be pushing too hard.
~to Craig McGregor, March 1978

Here are 7 videos you absolutely need to see. They are chosen for their historical significance and/or blistering performances.

1. Love Minus Zero/No Limit

Madison Square Garden
New York City, New York
1 August 1971
Afternoon concert

My love she speaks like silence
Without ideals or violence
She doesn’t have to say she’s faithful
Yet she’s true, like ice, like fire
People carry roses
Make promises by the hours
My love she laughs like the flowers
Valentines can’t buy her

Bob Dylan: Ho Chi Minh City 2011

bob dylan vietnam 2011

Not a good video, but a video none the less. The sequencing is all messed up, the video starts with “Like A Rolling Stone”, “All Along..” and then goes backwards from “Ballad Of A Thin Man”… it’s kind of a mess. Despite all of this, it’s interesting at least for some of us 🙂

  • Bob Dylan (vocal & keyboard)
  • Stu Kimball (guitar)
