Hot chili peppers in the blistering sun
Dust on my face and my cape
Me and Magdalena on the run
I think this time we shall escape

December 4: Bob Dylan plays Forum de Montréal in 1975 (videos)





bob dylan isis montreal 1975

I married Isis on the fifth day of May
But I could not hold on to her very long
So I cut off my hair and I rode straight away
For the wild unknown country where I could not go wrong
~Bob Dylan (Isis)

Dylan gives one of the finest shows of his career, as well as the longest of the 1975 concerts. A 23-song set (the opening Rolling Thunder show had just 16 Dylan songs) includes a six-song Dylan/Baez set and a three-song solo spot.

He had a job in Santa Fe
Working in an old hotel
But he never did like it all that much
and one day it just went to hell….

The best video on youtube.

Nov 20: Bob Dylan Harvard Square Theatre, Cambridge, Massachusetts – 1975





bob dylan cambridge 1975

….this concert is filmed, with three songs appearing in Renaldo and Clara: “It Ain’t Me, Babe,” which appears on the promotional EP as well, “Just Like a Woman,” and “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.” It is a relatively intimate venue with just 1,850 capacity; and the whole Revue responds with a particularly fine show. Before the concert, a scene is filmed of Sara Dylan as a hitchhiker being picked up in a Rolls Royce. Again, this is not included in the film.

October 31: Bob Dylan & Friends – Plymouth 1975

This is a ‘must have’ CD. Period. Fans of Rolling Thunder will find this first venue of the tour to be electrifyingly fresh and vibrant. Everything was new, mysterious, and exciting. The stunned audience would have to wait two more months for the release of this mystical music on the ‘Desire’ LP. As the tour wore on, some of the spontaneous edge began to dull with the wear and tear of life on the road. Fans of ‘Desire’ will thrill to the encore magic captured in Dylan’s voice and in Scarlet Rivera’s violin.
