Bob Dylan @ Ljubljana, Slovenia – April 28, 1999 (Audio)





Fantastic soundboard recording of a great show. .. The acoustic versions of Tambourine Man,  Hard Rain and, particularly, It’s All Over Now Baby Blue (where he places all the emphasis on “All” when singing the title-line) are stunning.

Bob Dylan: 5 great songs recorded in 1981





This is not a “best from 1981” list, just 5 Great songs Bob Dylan recorded in 1981.

Angelina

How to comment on this extraordinary piece of writing? Recorded at the ‘Shot of Love’ sessions of April-May 1980, Angelina is unlike anything else Bob Dylan has ever written – part Cocteau film, part Braque painting, totally surreal, it defies logic and heads off for the deepest, darkest parts of poetic mystery. Though Dylan has never commented about the song in public, chances are that he’d confess that it was as much mystery to him as to anyone else.

We really like Norah Jones, we especially like it when she does Country music and of course when she sing the songs of our hero Bob Dylan. We have trawled the web to find some of her great cover versions.

Lets start with a duet, here she sings I Shall Be Released with the man himself, Bob Dylan:
