June 27: My Favourite Bob Dylan bootleg 2011 Funen Village Odense Denmark




Bob Dylan & His Band - Funen Village, Odense (Live 27.06.2011) - Front

My Favourite Bob Dylan bootleg 2011: Funen Village Odense Denmark June 27

This is a great sounding Bob Dylan bootleg from his 2011 European tour, we saw Dylan in Bergen, Norway two days later, and the Odense concert is really close to my experience in Bergen. I have the recording from Bergen as well, and I did consider that show as my 2011 choice. But in the end I had to admit that I like the Funen Village show a little bit better. It sounds very good and Bob Dylan is clearly enjoying himself. I also love his version of The Man in Me here (we didn’t get that in Bergen).

The highlights for me are: The Man in Me, and then  “the three in a row”, Boots of Spanish Leather, The Ballad of Hollis Brown and Every Grain of Sand. Jump down to the video and check it out!

“…We participated all in a great garden party, perfect environment, amphi theatre packed with 2,000 spectators, surrounded by large trees, no wind,
20 degree C, blue night sky, my wife and I dancing few meters from the stage.

Most of the evening Bob acted as a showman, relaxed and unpretentious, rocking center stage with his microphone, harp or guitar, smiling “his” smile.

The band was swinging and the sound mercury clear, Bobs words came out personally strong, with long notes, in delicate balance with his tight band.

His standout songs tonight were many: The Man In Me , Things Have Changed (crooning with funny arm gestures), Ballad Of Hollis Brown (obsessive),
Ballad Of A Thin Man (majestic theatrical) and specially Forgetful Heart (beautiful, who induced goosebumps)…”

Bob Dylan: Unreleased Gem – Let’s Keep It Between Us (only studio version & 5 live versions)





Let’s keep it between us
These people meddlin’ in our affairs, they’re not our friends
Let’s keep it between us
Before doors close and our togetherness comes to an end
They’ll turn you against me and me against you
’Til we don’t know who to trust
Oh, darlin’, can we keep it between us?

This great song was only tried once in the studio – Santa Monica, October 1980. It was played at every show (19 times) during the “1980 A Musical Retrospective Tour”, debuted on November 9, 1980 & last performance was on December 4, 1980.
