“You hear sometimes about the glamour of the road, but you get over that real fast. There are a lot of times that it’s no different from going to work in the morning. Still, you’re either a player or you’re not a player. It didn’t really occur to me until we did those shows with the Grateful Dead [in 1987].
~Bob Dylan (to Robert Hilburn, Feb 1992)

As you get older, you get smarter and that can hinder you because you try to gain control over the creative impulse. Creativity is not like a freight train going down the tracks. It’s something that has to be caressed and treated with a great deal of respect. If your mind is intellectually in the way, it will stop you. You’ve got to program your brain not to think too much.
~Bob Dylan (Edna Gundersen Interview – May 1995)

Ok, here are some of our videos (& some audios) from the archives.

GREAT stuff!

June 21: Bob Dylan – Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right München 1991 (video)





bob dylan munchen 1991

 

Here’s a song about … Sometimes, like just today, somebody was coming to my hotel and stopped me on the street and he grabbed me around the shoulders and said “Mr. Zimmerman!” (pronounced with thick German accent!) These kind of things kind of shake a person up sometimes. And long ago somebody said the same thing. He didn’t know me and he got run over by a street-car, in the middle of the street. It was a sad thing, but there wasn’t anything for me to do but go back and write this song. And after it was written, that’s when it was sung.
~Intro to this version of Don’t Think Twice

It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don’t matter, anyhow
An’ it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don’t know by now
When your rooster crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I’ll be gone
You’re the reason I’m trav’lin’ on
Don’t think twice, it’s all right

June 12: Bob Dylan It Ain’t Me, Babe , Budapest, Hungary 1991 (Video)

Go ’way from my window
Leave at your own chosen speed
I’m not the one you want, babe
I’m not the one you need
You say you’re lookin’ for someone
Never weak but always strong
To protect you an’ defend you
Whether you are right or wrong
Someone to open each and every door
But it ain’t me, babe
No, no, no, it ain’t me, babe
It ain’t me you’re lookin’ for, babe

June 6: Bob Dylan – People Putting People Down (John Prine), Rome 1991 (Video)


bob dylan rome 1991

 People who are sad – sometimes they wear a frown
And people who are kings – sometimes they wear a crown
But all the people who don’t fit
Get the only fun they get
From people puttin’ people down
People puttin’ people down

Original song by John Prine:

Bob Dylan has covered this song twice… The other time was @ Palace Theatre, Sao Paolo, Brazil – 17 August 1991.

People without love – sometimes build a fence around
The garden up above – that makes the whole world go ’round
But all the people who don’t fit
Get the only fun they get
From people puttin’ people down
People puttin’ people down

So cold, sometimes it gets so cold

Feb 20: Bob Dylan Grammy Award Ceremony 1991

bob dylan 1991 grammy

To see and hear how the band looked and sounded in February 1991, you just need to view television footage of the Grammy awards ceremony from New York on the 20th , when Dylan was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Dylan’s appearance caused a media stir par excellence on two counts. Talking point one was his performance; number two was his acceptance speech.

Dylan performed his damning anti-war3 indictment, “Masters Of War” – a striking choice given that the Gulf War was still going on and hawkish jingoism was rife. However, since he chose to sing it without a pause for breath, and backed by this hapless/hamstrung band, no-one who did not already know the song would have got the message. In fact, many who were familiar with the song did not even recognise it. Not only did Dylan’s nasal passages sound blocked (he later revealed he’d had a cold) but it seemed he had swallowed a burst of helium before starting to sing. Some observers thought he was singing in Hebrew. The tuxedoed crowd looked on in utter bewilderment. The next day’s newspapers marvelled how only Dylan had performed a song with any meaning and purpose, but then, being Dylan, he had made it completely incomprehensible.
~Andrew Muir (One More Night: Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Tour)

Bob Dylan receives his Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is presented by Jack Nicholson.
