November 11, Classic concert: Bob Dylan live in Waterbury, Connecticut 1975

bobDylan_waterbury1975

Fantastic material. … The sound quality of the recording is as true and clean as any ever made along the Rolling Thunder tour. The vocals are crisp, powerful, and on top of the mix. All instruments are well balanced and represented in the overall sound.
The 11th recording made along the tour, this show was recorded on the 11th day of the 11th month …. and what a magical mystery tour it is. The complex, though loose weaving and interacting of the instruments and vocals create a beautiful tapestry that will not be matched on any tour before or since. With the ‘Desire’ album to be released in a few weeks, Bob relies heavily on it for the show material. The cryptic songs of desire and despair add another layer to the thick blanket of mythography that is, was, and will forever be ‘Rolling Thunder’. …. The obscure title comes from Dylan’s introduction of the song ‘Sara’. “We want to do this one for Larry, our favorite reporter, who’s out there somewhere. He tells it like it is.”

The Dylan/Baez set 1s extended to five songs. Tonight’s set includes the version of “The Water Is Wide” used as back- ground in the “Renaldo, Clara, and the Woman in White” scene. The concert is filmed for Renaldo and Clara. However, no footage is used, probably because Dylan uses no white face makeup, for the only time on the tour.

Shadows are fallin’ and I’ve been here all day
It’s too hot to sleep and time is runnin’ away
Feel like my soul has turned into steel
I’ve still got the scars that the sun didn’t heal
There’s not even room enough to be anywhere
It’s not dark yet but it’s gettin’ there.

Well, my nerves are exploding and my body’s tense
I feel like the whole world got me pinned up against the fence
I’ve been hit too hard, I’ve seen too much
Nothing can heal me now, but your touch
I don’t know what I’m gonna do
I was all right ’til I fell in love with you

If your mem’ry serves you well
We were goin’ to meet again and wait
So I’m goin’ to unpack all my things
And sit before it gets too late
No man alive will come to you
With another tale to tell
But you know that we shall meet again
If your mem’ry serves you well
This wheel’s on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode!
