March 16: Bob Dylan @ State Theater, Detroit, Michigan – 2004 (audio)

Of the three nights in Detroit the second night [March 16] is
by far my favorite. Every performance this night was
dead on and there was never a moment when I felt that
the intensity was not red hot and pouring from the
stage like molten lava.

This concert features a great cover version of Bob Seger’s “Get Out of Denver”.

March 8: Bob Dylan @ Park West, Chicago, Illinois – 2004

Something was happening there and you can just tell
that from the unbelievably non-linear set-list. It was
almost as if Bob decided the set last night would
possess the qualities of a cubist painting and then he
just turned it all upside down and inside out! From
the outset with Larry’s prominent playing of the
opening chords of, “Tangled Up In Blue”, you
absolutely had no doubt that tonight’s performance
would be something you’d never quite get over…

Bob Dylan & Willie Nelson Performing “Heartland” in Des Moines, Iowa – August 28, 2004 (video)





“My American dream fell apart at the seam,” sing Nelson and Bob Dylan in this elegy to America’s family farmers. A track from Nelson’s 1993 Across the Borderline, the song details in plain language the war between forlorn farmers and unsympathetic bankers, with the latter undeniably the victor. Willie wrote the song with Dylan, who famously inspired Nelson’s annual Farm Aid benefit concerts with his off-hand remark at 1985’s Live Aid that something should be done to help U.S. farmers. The lyrics are unapologetic, brimming with as much indignation as Mellencamp’s “Rain on the Scarecrow,” but it’s the pairing of two of music’s most unconventional voices that makes it a must-hear.
