Dylan makes a surprise appearance at a tribute to Roy Orbison at the Universal Amphitheater, Universal City, Los Angeles, joining three of the original Byrds (David Crosby, Roger McGuinn, and Chris Hillman) on a version of “Mr. Tambourine Man.” He remains onstage, playing guitar on “He Was a Friend of Mine,” and joining in on an ensemble encore of “Only the Lonely.” The version of “Mr. Tambourine Man,” on which Dylan competes with McGuinn for the “lead” vocal, subsequently appears in a cable TV special of the benefit, as well as on CBS’s four-CD Byrds retrospective, simply titled The Byrds.

June 1: Bob Dylan – Universal Amphitheater, Los Angeles, California 1978 (audio & video)

Dylan prepares for his first European tour in 12 years with the first of seven dates at the Universal Amphitheatre. Dylan introduces two songs from his forthcoming album, “Baby Stop Crying” replacing “I Threw It all Away,” and “Senor” replacing “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright, Ma” Also introduced are the two arrangements that come in for such critical praise on his European visit, the torch ballad version of “Tangled Up in Blue” with just guitar, saxophone, and keyboard; and the hard-rock version of “Masters of War,” the fury of the backing for once matching the venom of the words. “Tangled Up in Blue” replaces a similar arrangement of”Girl from the North Country,” “Masters of War” replaces “Oh Sister.” The set’s finale is condensed down to: “The Man in Me,” “It’s Alright, Ma,” “Forever Young,” and a single encore, “The Times They Are a-Changin’.”
