May 22: Bob Dylan If You See Her, Say Hello , Los Angeles, California 1998 (Video)

bob dylan L.A. 1998

If you see her, say hello, she might be in Tangier
She left here last early Spring, is livin’ there, I hear
Say for me that I’m all right though things get kind of slow
She might think that I’ve forgotten her, don’t tell her it isn’t so

Pauley Pavilion
Los Angeles, California
22 May 1998

  • Bob Dylan (vocal & guitar)
  • Bucky Baxter (pedal steel guitar & electric slide guitar)
  • Larry Campbell (guitar)
  • Tony Garnier (bass)
  • David Kemper (drums & percussion)

We had a falling-out, like lovers often will
And to think of how she left that night, it still brings me a chill
And though our separation, it pierced me to the heart
She still lives inside of me, we’ve never been apart

If you get close to her, kiss her once for me
I always have respected her for busting out and gettin’ free
Oh, whatever makes her happy, I won’t stand in the way
Though the bitter taste still lingers on from the night I tried to make her stay

I see a lot of people as I make the rounds
And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town
And I’ve never gotten used to it, I’ve just learned to turn it off
Either I’m too sensitive or else I’m gettin’ soft

Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past
I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast
If she’s passin’ back this way, I’m not that hard to find
Tell her she can look me up if she’s got the time

April 27: Bruce Springsteen LA Sports Arena 2012 (Videos)

Early-birds in the LA Sports Arena get an unexpected treat – an hour before the show Bruce appears on stage with a party (Bruce claimed they were his relatives, but we’re not so sure!) and plays an acoustic version of “For You“.

For You:

The three-hour set opens with “No Surrender”, the first of two tour premieres from Born In The U.S.A. – “Bobby Jean” is the other. The “this train” introduction is dropped from “Land Of Hope And Dreams” for the second and final time of the first American leg. Tom Morello joins Bruce on stage for the same songs as the previous night, plus “Land of Hope And Dreams”. Springsteen’s guitar tech Kevin Buell is honoured on the occasion of his 1000th show – Bruce lures him to the front of the stage with a fake guitar failure. “My City Of Ruins” includes “People Get Ready”.

Wonderland music documentary – The LA scene 1977

When I looked for songs on youtube for Jackson Brownes birthday I stubled upon this great documentary. This is why the web is so goddam cool, you can find long lost treasures, things you were certain was out of circulation or that you’ve never even heard of.

In 1977 the Dutch public broadcasting association VARA made a documentary called Wonderland, about then up-&-coming recording artists Warren Zevon, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt & Jackson Browne. Here is that film.

Warren Zevon at Griffith Observatory, Linda Ronstadt in studio “Tracks Of My Tears” alternative studio version, Linda Ronstadt outside her Malibu house, Warren Zevon at a burrito stand, Warren Zevon in concert “Carmelita”, Bonnie Raitt at Frederick’s, Bonnie Raitt in concert “Nothing Seems To Matter”, Linda Ronstadt in the bedroom of her Malibu house, Linda Ronstadt in studio “Lose Again” alternative studio version, Warren Zevon at Griffith Observatory, Warren Zevon in rehearsal “Frank And Jesse James”, Bonnie Raitt in concert “Give It Up Or Let Me Go”, Jackson Browne in concert “Before The Deluge”.
