bob dylan paris 1993

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

February 17: Bob Dylan & “Swiss Liz” – The Times They Are A-Changin’ 1993

Bob Dylan - Eindhoven_1993_Liz

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Feb 9: Bob Dylan: I & I, Hammersmith Apollo London, England – 1993 (Video)

bob dylan hammersmith 1993

Been so long since a strange woman has slept in my bed
Look how sweet she sleeps, how free must be her dreams
In another lifetime she must have owned the world, or been faithfully wed
To some righteous king who wrote psalms beside moonlit streams

I and I, in creation where one’s nature neither honors nor forgives
I and I, one say to the other, no man sees my face and lives

January 17: Bob Dylan sings Chimes Of Freedom in Washington 1993





bob-dylan-washington 1993

Far between sundown’s finish an’ midnight’s broken toll
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing
As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing
Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight
Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight
An’ for each an’ ev’ry underdog soldier in the night
An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing

September 12: Bob Dylan @ Great Woods Performing Arts Center, Mansfield, Massachusetts in 1993

..nothing short of amazing. The performance is dead-on, and the vocals are way up front in your face. The recording is perfect digital quality right off of the soundboard. The show itself is among the best of the tour, and the song line-up is a taper’s dream..

..in near  perfect quality and showcasing a focused, “biting” Dylan peformance  that simply sizzles. The opening number sets the table nicely, with a rough and tumble vocal and lengthy harp fills that indicate Bob is in a lively mood on this night. The line recording catches every little nuance and inflection with startling clarity.
