Nov 21: Bob Dylan: Tangled Up In Blue, Boston 1975

bob dylan boston 1975

He had a job in Santa Fe
Working in an old hotel
But he never did like it all that much
and one day it just went to hell….

The best video on youtube.

It’s so damn good that even the Web sheriff leaves it alone…
(yeah.. I know it’s “official”.. but it felt good to say it)


Boston 1975 Complete front

The evening gig on November 21 1975 has to be one of Rolling Thunder Revue (part 1) best concerts. It’s much bootlegged & Dylan even put 2 songs in his movie Renaldo & Clara – Tangled (of course) & It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry.

When it was (finally) time for Dylan to officially release concert material from Rolling Thunder 1, he picked no less than 10 songs from this concert.

  1. I lost previous comment . Bob’s ability to change up lyrics and music of a previous hit and make another great different song makes him an enigma . He is definitely one of a kind , and too often we take this ability of his for granted ; perhaps because he has so many musical talents .

  2. This is the best and largest and most varied set of Dylan’s works that I have received from the kind person Egil to whom I subscribed to receive his/her Dylan samples, day in and day out. You hit me in the heart here, Egil. Thank you so much!

  3. Cool stuff, Egil. Renaldo & Clara is one of those items my ever-growing Dylan collection still doesn’t include, so I don’t think I ever knew where exactly he was performing in the “Tangled..” video from the Live 1975, which I’ve had since its release. Now I do, thanks to you. Thanks as always for sharing. You and your colleagues at Johanna’s Visions have the “genius of generosity.” Bob’s career has been so epic, even a Dylan fan of nearly forty years can’t keep up sometimes. Always learning new information here at JV. That’s what makes your site top 5 material on my web site favs list. Peace.

  4. one of the many jobs he had , while singing this classic.
    I had a job in the Great North Woods/ working as a cook for a spell.
    Never did like it all that much/ and one day the axe just fell
