“I was just sitting outside my house one day thinking about a name for this tour, when all of a sudden, I looked into the sky and I heard a boom! Then, boom, boom, boom, boom, rolling from west to east. So I figured that should be the name.”
– Bob Dylan

This is my favorite of Bob Dylan’s bootleg series, and one of the best live albums ever released.

The Rolling Thunder Revue was a concert tour  Bob Dylan with a traveling caravan of notable musicians, including Joan Baez,Roger McGuinn, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. Bob Neuwirth assembled the backing musicians, including T-Bone Burnett, Mick Ronson, David Mansfield, Steven Soles, and from the Desire sessions, violinist Scarlet Rivera, bassist Rob Stoner, and drummer Howie Wyeth. The tour included 57 concerts in two legs—the first in the American northeast and Canada in the fall of 1975, and the second in the American south and southwest in the spring of 1976.

it’s been such a long long time
since we loved each other when our hearts were true
one time, for one brief day, i was the man for you
last night i heard you talkin in your sleep
saying things you shouldn’t say, oh baby
you just may have to go to jail someday

Bob Dylan – Like A Rolling Stone
Air Canada Centre
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
14 November 2012

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you ?
People’d call, say, “Beware doll, you’re bound to fall.”
You thought they were all kiddin’ you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin’ out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel?
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone ?

October 11: Bob Dylan in Nottingham 2011

nottingham-2011

“… he was clearly more than up for it, leaving his keyboard and standing centre-stage, sans guitar, for a mesmerising Love Sick, acting out the song with hand movements and, er, strangely demonic grins. I’ve never seen him like that before.

The energy level was maintained for Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues but ramped up still further for Can’t Wait, delivered in a pile-driving stop-start fashion.”
– Nottingham Post

 

Band:
Bob Dylan (vocal & keyboard)
Stu Kimball (guitar)
Charlie Sexton (guitar)
Donnie Herron (violin, mandolin, steel guitar, banjo)
