I picked up the Box set yesterday and have listened to the first 4 songs on the remix CD since I am in the middle of a custody case regarding my baby girl.
Not Dark Yet will come up fittingly tonite, hopefully for the better...

An amazing listen so far I must say, I do have issues with Lanois' "veiled" production even though of course it serves the songs brilliantly on the original version.
Somehow the raw, more direct sound that Dylan reached for is the best for me. I wonder how Lanois'"sexy" Mississippi would have sounded like....?

Anyone else disappointed by the quality of the vinyl (substantially bent)?

A memorial/memoir

I attended my first Bob Dylan concert 45 years ago today, Saturday, 25 February, 1978. That was the second night of the three Osaka shows during his first Japan tour. FYR the other shows were unprecedented eight Budokan dates (of them, the last show, 4 March, was a later addition. The official At Budokan double live album was recorded on 28 February and 1 March), and Osaka was the only regional destination of the tour outside Tokyo. The venue was Matsushita Denki Taiikukan (the tag, “Matsushita Electric Industrial Gymnasium”, was used in English description), which was later renamed Panasonic Arena. The capacity is approximately 6,000, more or less. AFAIK It has rarely, possibly never, been used before or since for the concert purpose except for these 1978 Dylan shows for some reason beyond me.

I was sitting on the 7th or 8th row on the floor seat, near the centre. Two things I remember among others are; 1. Dylan put on make-up, his face covered in white foundation — the ghost of the glam rock past perhaps? Somehow reminiscent of Mick in the mid-70s. 2. He only played an electric guitar (Stratocaster) — he never picked up an acoustic guitar.

The show lasted about 2 hours and 30 minutes, including a 15-20 minute intermission in the middle. Going, Going, Gone closed the first set. One of the highlights was that Dylan, to the request from the floor, a voice raised somewhere not far from me, launched into an impromptu, most likely unrehearsed, version of One Too Many Mornings, which would end up as the sole performance of the song not only in Japan but also during the entire 1978 World Tour. Moreover, it was never performed again for the next ten years, until 1988, the first year of the so-called Never Ending Tour that’s been running to this day.

The received wisdom among the fans and critics alike is that the 1978 Japan tour pales in comparison with the following European and U.S. shows. But to me, the show I attended felt like a very strong and impeccable performance on its own. You know, “I was there.” I found the entire show uploaded on YouTube the other day, and listened to it in one go, the first time in 45 years! And it hasn’t changed my impression. Give it a listen and decide by yourself:

Dylan surely isn't that kind of guy who likes to repeat the past or stick to some formula he developed some 50 years ago…

Thanks. I missed Dylan’s U.K. show last Fall, but I’m planning to catch him live as well as Clapton in Japan during my home return in the coming April.

Can’t say I’m a dedicated fan, but I saw him every time he toured Japan 1978-2014, except for the one-off, short-set appearance at the UNESCO-backed music festival in Nara 1994 (‘The Great Music Experience’), attended 18 shows in all. My interest in him started to wane when he shifted to a fixed setlist in 2013, and he completely lost me in his Sinatra-covering phase thus resulting in my back off from the 2016 Japan tour. I didn’t see him headlining Fuji Rock Festival 2018, either.

Understandable, but these Rough and Rowdy Ways shows are really fantastic (if you like the new album). I saw him in Providence in 2021 and then several times in London last year and they were all worth it.

I've heard mixed reviews on this tour, but the Nashville (Ryman) show was one of the best live shows I've ever seen by anyone (over 100 artists and 200 shows). He has delivered some duds in my time, but at The Ryman, he and his band were sublime.

As for mixed reviews, the only negative reviews I have heard is from people who don't know or don't like the new album. And that makes sense because most of the show is the new album.

Yeah. I can't imagine a better Dylan show now. You'd have loved it. Jack White was in the crowd (I waved and he waved back). The other time I saw Dylan at The Ryman, Jack White joined him for One More Cup of Coffee and the only ever live performance of Outlaw Blues (another great show).

Wow, cool. At one of the London shows, Jimmy Page walked down the aisle so I said, "Enjoy the show, Jimmy." He looked at me and said thanks. That was cool.

rather early summer…
anyway: the rumors say Spain in June and Italy in July. It seems to be likely that there will be shows in other countries (South France?, Switzerland? Autria? South Germany?).
Since Dylan toured Northern Europe and the UK in fall 2022 the upcoming tour will most likely cover Southern Europe. I'd be surprised if this tour was to cross the German river Main..

Bit harsh Rocky. Dylan, unquestionably, is the greatest songwriter/lyricist we have ever seen/heard. That he sounds like he’s on “misery hill”, to you, an unabashed fan of blues music, sounds incredible to me. Blues music, artists that made their living on “misery hill”, still have time for them?
