March 12-13: Bob Dylan – Hotel Room in Denver 1966





bob dylan 1966

…When Dylan and Robbie Robertson arrive at their Denver hotel at 3AM, they jam in Dylan’s hotel room for an hour. Shelton tapes the session on his portable reel-to-reel. Although it is just three days after Dylan completed Blonde 0n Blonde, Dylan and Robertson work on three new songs that, had they been given titles and not simply forgotten by Dylan, might have been called “Positively Van Gogh,” “Don’t Tell Him,” and “If You Want My Love.” Dylan then plays “Just Like a Woman” and “Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands” for Shelton’s benefit, before deciding it is time to get some sleep.
~Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995)

Although the sound quality is bad this is wonderful stuff for some of us…

The music can be found on cd #6 in the bootleg “collection”: Jewels & Binoculars (26CD set).

Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 2001





I don’t even consider this work as part of my life. Not even close. My life doesn’t revolve around my work. Not even a little bit. I mean, I’ve got millions of fans and I know that and I’m more than happy to go out there and play for them… But that’s not my life. My life is private and personal and completely filled up.

Feb 10: Bob Dylan – Sydney Press Conference 1986 (video)

bob dylan sydney 1986

There is so much mediocrity going on, every time someone really good comes along it’s like you can’t be too good ‘cause you’re looked at. you stand out. People that stand out in an individual kind of way, they don’t fit into the system because they don’t sell, they don’t keep system commodities going. I thought Peter Townshend’s record was real good.

Who’s Bob Dylan? I’m only Bob Dylan when I have to be Bob Dylan. Most of the time I just be myself.

Dylan records a half-hour program as part of the CBC-TV series “Quest.” The half a dozen songs he sings-“Talkin’ World War III Blues,” “Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall,” “Girl from the North Country,” “The Times They Are a-Chang in’,” “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll,” and “Restless Farewell”-are all performed within the most incongruous of settings, a log cabin filled with working men pretending to pay attention.
