July 12: Bob Dylan in Kristiansand, Norway 2014 (review & audios)

dylan krsand-2We “knew“ he had to play the standard” setlist tonight, but he took us by surprise yet again. This might mean that  a new standard setlist is busy being born. Only two changes from the Stavern show; Watching the River Flow opens (Most Likely You Go.. opened @ Stavern) and Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum replaced “Blind Willie McTell” at #11.

It was a wonderful evening @ Bendiksbukta, great area, not too much people & good festival logistics. All these things were bad at Stavernfestivalen. But most important off course; the show was in a different league. Almost every song performance was better than last shows performances, even the brilliant Stavern-version of “Girl From The North Country” was slightly better @ Bendiksbukta.

They sat together in the park
As the evening sky grew dark
She looked at him and he felt a spark tingle to his bones
’Twas then he felt alone and wished that he’d gone straight
And watched out for a simple twist of fate

Muddy Waters and Rolling Stones live at The Checkerboard Lounge 1981

Muddy Waters and Rolling Stones live at The Checkerboard Lounge 1981

The Stones rushed into the small club unannounced. There was no VIP area, so they sat in front of the stage as Muddy kept playing. Drummer Charlie Watts sat out the Checkerboard trip, but Jagger, Richards, Ronnie Wood and keyboardist Ian Stewart were all willing participants. One of the highlights is “Mannish Boy,” with Waters standing up from his stool for the first time to jump up and down with Jagger as they wail “I’m a rolling stone.”

Richards swigged Jack Daniel’s straight out the bottle. Mick Jagger chewed lots of gum. “The Stones drank about five bottles of Jack in two hours,” said Thurman.
