My Favourite Bob Dylan bootleg 2014: Gothenburg Sweden July 15
We (Egil & I) saw Bob Dylan two times on this leg of the tour (Stavern and Kristiansand), Stavern was good and Kristiansand was great. This show from Gothenburg, Sweden is close to the Kristiansand show in atmosphere and performance. It has a guitar-heavy feel just like the two shows we attended. The boot has a very good sound.
Bob Dylan – piano, harp
Tony Garnier – bass
George Recile – drums
Stu Kimball – rhythm guitar
Charlie Sexton on lead guitar
Donnie Herron – electric mandolin, pedal steel, lap steel
Review by Anders Tidström (via Boblinks)
“Rain stopped when Bob and his band entered the outdoor stage in Gothenburg. So did most expectations about the set list. There we go again Bobby. Tonight every song – but the encores – was different from last night and that was certainly not expected as things have been pretty constant on this tour. Opening act with Watch The River Flow gave the atmosphere for the whole evening – Dylan singing and playing the grand piano. He in fact parked behind this instrument most of the time. The Levee´s Gonna Break a few songs later gave a hell of a fire as the band rocked and swinged ultimately. Next: Shelter From The Storm with Bob center stage just singing and for a while pleasing the crowed with a small harmonica solo. He also performed Girl From The North Country solo center stage with a remarkably fine voice. Then back behind the grand piano, hammering, exercising a good swing-swing version of Summer Days. The set list wash´t expected but a great concert was performed. Though some local Gothenburg journalist had another view, seems like she´s been to another show actually. But I was enjoying it as much as ever. Standing by since Bob´s Swedish live debut, Stockholm 1966. Wow Bob, you´ll be back in a while? Stopping the rain!”
Highlights: Don’t think twice it’s all right, Girl from the North Country, Shelter from the storm were best, but the other are not far behind, this was a very good concert! Just like tom Thumb’s Blues and Ballad of a Thin Man are terrific also, and so are To Ramona, well, now you know that I like this concert a lot 🙂

Great review guys, any idea where I can get a copy of this bootleg? I was at the gig and it was the best I have seen Bobby and would love to have a copy of this to remind me of my trip to the gorgeous Goteborg!
We can not provide bootleg links, but we believe bootlegs should be “liberated” (free for all). So, do what we did, google it, It shouldn’t be too hard to find it 🙂

so so many accolades come bob dylan’s way….everyone of them so deserved that we all are running out of what to say…he pretty much has simply left us spellbound and rendered us without words…keep well your Bobship. r&e
I agree this one is really good, but I prefer the Tivoli show from Brisbane… Only a matter of taste!
I love that one as well, but as you said a matter of taste 🙂
thanks for the comment!
Thanks for the audio / video. Very laid back performances.
