June 24: Bob Dylan – Desolation Row, Birmingham, England 1998 (Video)

bob dylan birmingham 1998

They’re selling postcards of the hanging
They’re painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They’ve got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they’re restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady and I look out tonight
From Desolation Row

June 22: Bob Dylan – Can’t Wait, Milan, Italy 2011 (video)

bob dylan milan june 2011

I can’t wait, wait for you to change your mind
It’s late, I’m trying to walk the line
Well, it’s way past midnight and there are people all around
Some on their way up, some on their way down
The air burns and I’m trying to think straight
And I don’t know how much longer I can wait

Absolutely stunning version!

….next he did an absolutely superb version of ‘Can’t Wait’. Lights were back on and Bob was  walking back and forth across the stage with only the mike and his voice; ‘ I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t wait’, sung with amazing passion. I hope all get to hear the brilliance of this moment.

Your breath is sweet
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight, your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie
But I don’t sense affection
No gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee ’fore I go
To the valley below

November 25: Bob Dylan live at Winterland (The Last Watz), San Francisco 1976 (Videos)

bob dylan last waltz 1976

… at THE LAST WALTZ, Neil Diamond came off stage and said to Dylan, “You’ll have to be pretty good to follow me”. Dylan came back with: “What do I have to do, go on stage and fall asleep?”
~Ron Wood

Dylan was among those taking part, and though it was far from his best performance, he was sympathetically filmed, as were The Band when they were on stage with him—perhaps especially Levon Helm, in fact, whose keen relish of Dylan’s unpredictability is captured beautifully.

They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones
’Twas then he felt alone and wished that he’d gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate
