It’s been such a long long time
since we loved each other when our hearts were true
one time, for one brief day, i was the man for you
last night i heard you talkin in your sleep
saying things you shouldn’t say, oh baby
you just may have to go to jail someday
is there a place we can go, is there anybody we can see?

New York City, New York
Beacon Theatre
November 28, 2014

  • Bob Dylan – piano, harp
  • Tony Garnier – bass
  • George Recile – drums
  • Stu Kimball – rhythm guitar
  • Charlie Sexton on lead guitar
  • Donnie Herron – banjo, viola, violin, electric mandolin, pedal steel, lap steel

Here is a wonderful Long and Wasted Years:

and a very nice Simple Twist Of Fate, great harmonica & a nice twist on the lyrics:

He woke up and she was gone
He didn’t see nothing but the dawn
Got out of bed and put his shoes back on
The he pushed back the blinds
Found a note she left behind, what it said
Said you should have met me back in 58
We could have avoided this in a Simple Twist Of Fate

  1. I was prepared to be disappointed at Friday’s New York Dylan concert. Clips from recent performances suggested that his vocals were largely incomprehensible, words lost in the phlegm and husk. To our delight, he and the band, and the excellent sound crew at the Beacon theatre really brought it. You could make out every powerfully delivered word and the band rocked,swung, and shuffled with a vengeance. There’s no doubt his voice is fairly shot for singing but Friday night his use of intoned voice and microtonal chanting to deliver the lyrics was committed and effective. Beat poetry readings and the expressionist cabaret stylings of Lotte Lenya are obvious precedents but what about…… MR. FRENCH (a.k.a Sebastian Cabot ) I ask you?????? The evidence in reverse order and a perceptive review follow:

    Sebastian Cabot — It Ain’t Me Babe

    Jack Kerouac — On the Road

    Lotte Lenya — Pirate Jenny
