June 30: Bob Dylan & Eric Clapton @ Madison Square Garden New York City – 1999 (Full concert video)




Onstage, Mr. Dylan — in a particularly smiling, playful mood — was able to meet Mr. Clapton on his level, playing a heated version of ”Crossroads.” But Mr. Clapton had trouble meeting Mr. Dylan on his. Mr. Clapton’s liquid blues lines couldn’t find an entry point into Mr. Dylan’s ”Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” and when their iconic heads met at the microphone for ”Born in Time,” they seemed to be singing different words. As for the rest of Mr. Clapton’s band, at first the musicians had trouble doing much more than standing around slack-jawed as these two giants searched for common ground to stand on.
-Neil Strauss (New York Times)

Bob Dylan @ Port Chester, June 14, 2017 (audio)

Slot 2 tonight was a real treat of TO RAMONA with Bob on guitar!! Long time since I last saw him play the guitar. Nice. Then a powerful, powerful HIGHWAY 61.. this arrangement is stellar. A brutally good STORMY WEATHER was followed by a rocking, rolling, roaring version of SUMMER DAYS.

Bob Dylan: Mr. Tambourine Man, New York – 27 July 1999 (Video)

bob dylan new york 1999

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
I’m not sleepy and there is no place I’m going to
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me
In the jingle jangle morning I’ll come followin’ you

Though I know that evenin’s empire has returned into sand
Vanished from my hand
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping
My weariness amazes me, I’m branded on my feet
I have no one to meet
And the ancient empty street’s too dead for dreaming

Bob Dylan: best live versions of “Visions of Johanna”





I´ve posted some great versions of VOJ lately. There seems to be strong opinions among our readers regarding “best VOJ live version”, so why not compare different versions?

I´v nominated 10 versions and would love to get feedback – use the comments section in this post or comment on my post on Alldylan´s FB page -> Alldylan @ Facebook.

Try to pick 3, but any number will do.

My top 3:

  1. Sheffield 1966
  2. Portsmouth 2000
  3. Dublin 2005

If we get enough response, I´ll compile the results and update this post.

April 24: Video of Bob Dylan performing “My Back Pages” in Utica, New York in 1997





bob dylan utica 1997

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin’ high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
“We’ll meet on edges, soon,” said I
Proud ’neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

Real nice version with a lovely and rather long harmonica part by our man.
