Feb 26: Bob Dylan plays Christchurch, New Zealand in 2003 (audio)

bob dylan new zealand 2003

I’m not sure if a live concert can get any better than this one. The
sound quality was excellent, the guitar work of Tony and Larry just
amazing and Bob’s piano work really does add new colour. I feel George is far too busy as a drummer and there were times when both Bob and Tony seemed to be trying to communicate to him how the songs should go. Billy does not have the finesse of Charlie but hopefully he will listen to what is happening and develop. Anni DiFranco referred to Mr Dylan and his killer band, how good would this band be with Garth Hudson on organ?

  1. Regards the question for the ages about what Garth Hudson would add to a band fronted by Bob Dylan~ Mr. Hudson has enhanced every ensemble he played with. Evidence of his work with Mr, D is on record from 1966 thru 1974. Levon Helm felt that “as long as Garth is there, it is still The Band,”
