  1. Interesting concept, terrible execution. An obvious nod to Springsteen with the saxophone, carnival barker band intro’s and organ fills. It’s a mess but has value. Mr Tambourine Man almost comical! Dylan gets many mulligans but this isn’t one.

  2. Thanks for the memories. I was there in Hec Ed in the second deck looking at center stage. Great experience. Still have a Tee Shirt from the tour.

  3. Saw this tour a few days later in Jackson Miss. Thanks for posting as it brought back some great memories!!
