July 21: Bob Dylan @ Camden, London 1993 – Photos

Dylan makes a surprise appearance at Camden Lock market, an open-air market in Camden Town, London, where he is filmed in a restaurant called Fluke’s Cradle and walking around in a top hat and frock coat by ex-Eurythmic Dave Stewart. The resultant footage appears as a promotional video for “Blood in My Eyes” cleverly lip-synched and intercut with shots of Dylan signing autographs and walking among the crowds. Dylan is accompanied by his regular bodyguard, Jim Callaghan, but remains very approach- able throughout the afternoon, even when dining at the restaurant.
-Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995)

On July 21, 1993 Bob Dylan walked around in Camden Town, London in a top hat filming the video for “Blood In My Eyes”. He signed autographs and seemed relaxed. There are many cool pictures of this event, here are 18. And of course the video for “Blood In My Eyes”.

July 19: Watch Bob Dylan Performing Beyond Here Lies Nothin’, Tucson, Arizona 2011

bob dylan 2011

I love you pretty baby
You’re the only love I’ve ever known
Just as long as you stay with me
The whole world is my throne
Beyond here lies nothin’
Nothin’ we can call our own

I’m movin’ after midnight
Down boulevards of broken cars
Don’t know what to do without it
Without this love that we call ours
Beyond here lies nothin’
Nothin’ but the moon and stars
