I love the vinyl version of this More Blood... set. I would love to hear the cd boxset, but I just don't know whether I want to plunk down the money to hear 7 versions of the same song played continuously.

"How a Wisconsin Singer Got a Bob Dylan Co-Writing Credit for New Song ‘On, Wisconsin’
Trapper Schoepp added some lyrics and a melody to Dylan’s unrecorded 1961 song before getting approval from the man himself."

Wisconsin singer/songwriter Trapper Schoepp was scrolling through articles on Rolling Stone‘s website in March 2017 when he came across a piece about a long-lost Bob Dylan lyric manuscript about the state of Wisconsin that was about to hit the auction block. The article concluded with a complete transcription of the lyrics. “I just got this sinking feeling in my gut,” says Schoepp. “I knew that I needed to finish what was started.

To Schoepp’s shock, Dylan himself signed off on the song once Schoepp added a melody to it and filled in some lyrical gaps. It’s the final track on his upcoming album Primetime Illusion, due out January 25th, 2019, but “On, Wisconsin” is available to hear below."

Caught Bob Wednesday and he put on a fine, fine show. His voice was as clear and strong as I’ve heard in the last 10 years. Scarlet town, don’t think twice and simple twist were my favorites. The crowd on the other hand was sooooooo lame. It was like we were in church, and I don’t mean that in a good way. I guess it was nice from the fact that people were attentive and there was little to no crowd chatter as he was playing, but musicians feed off the energy from the fans as much as rye crowd feeds off the performers energy. I much prefer seeing bob when he does colleges with GA floors. Sadly I think this may be the last time I spend the cash to see him.

When was the last time he played colleges with GA floors? I saw him at University of Santa Barbara auditorium around 2004, but it wasn't GA.
Ever since then, I've seen him either in small theaters (Pantages and Dolby, etc.), or outdoor ampitheaters (Santa Barbara Bowl, Hollwood Bowl, etc), all reserved seating and never GA.

The times I did see him GA was at the 2002 Wiltern shows all three nights up front in the pit ( Bob ), and before that in 2000 (or 2001?) at the outdoor Ventura County Fairgrounds co-heading with Phil Lesh.
Made it up front for Bob, but skidaddled out of there about half way through Lesh's set

Nice? That's the way ALL shows should be!

When I saw Bob about 10 years ago, there was a couple in front of me that yakked through the whole thing. Looked like they were on a date, and it was just background noise for them.

People like that have no business being at a Dylan concert.

Looks like Bob's starting a week long residency at the Beacon Theatre tomorrow night.
That would be a fun gig.

Ah you never turned around to see the frowns
On the jugglers and the clowns when they all did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you

Yea showing my age. It was a long time ago no doubt. Say 99-07. Obviously bob wants a seated crowd now. I can do a show, or two, but much prefer crowd interaction, with a bit of dancing and what not. I know that’s not where bob is today, I just miss it and miss that Dylan. It was nice to sit right in front of him two rows back and watch him do his thing the whole night.

Agreed, but not drop dead quite where if you cough you interrupt the show, I loathe show talkers, but a little hooting n hollering never hurt no one. My first visions these kids starting yapping in front of me. I got between them and said I’ve been waiting my whole life to hear this song STFU or go out into the hall.

Unsurprising, every set at the Beacon so far has been the same, although last night he finally busted out It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry in place of All Along The Watchtower to open the encore. So far the only difference between any of the 6 shows.

DATES for Summer 2019 coming through on the Expecting Rain website. In Europe.
Would be nice to hear of a new studio recording though, originals of course.

I am going. Will be 6 years since I saw Stones there. Bob AND Neil on the same night from Gold circle will be great. Too old to queue and run. Will se Bob in Globen too. This (and a Martin D28) is my substitute for not going to US next year...

I think the cat calls and the "YEAH!!!"'s annoy Bob at the utmost level. He much prefers a respectful discrete audience. There were shows where Bob refrained from giving a little extra (like a harp solo) because the audience was rowdy.
Neil Young is basically the same... except he won't withdraw from his performance he'll cut it short and insult the audience grinning smiley like he did recently.

I like Dylan, but statements like that are total bull..t (in my opinion). I have seen him 5 times since 2005 and I haven't realized any ""new ways." Yes, the old songs sound very different, most people in the audience recognize them only by lyrics (I personally don't see that as an advantage). But the fact is, that all songs (new and old) sound very much the same and they sound pretty much the same year after year. Okay, there are some arrangement differencies, but nothing too dramatic. Since my first Dylan concert in 2005 he still sounds very much the same (to my ears). Yet people go on and on about how he constatnly re-invents himself and his music. Sorry, I can't hear that, I can't see that, maybe it is just me...

Dylan is like that. Either you get him or you don't. My wife doesn't. 30 years ago (when I was young) I could not understand why that man with his nasal voice was so great, but I bought a LP (at Budokan) and realised how good his songs were.

I believe his arrangements differs more over the years than that other band we all know and love...

I get Dylan and I agree with most of what Happy is saying. I enjoy the current shows, but largely he does always sound the same and the arrangements are all relatively similar. Yes, he USED to really switch things up, but nowadays and for the last 10-15 years its hard to say there's been THAT much change. I don't think that really has to do with "getting him" or not. I'm on board with what he does but I agree the constant reinvention thing is a tad overrated.

I do not exactly agree - he had ups and downs, the time around Tempest was full of energy. In 2013 he started playing the same setlists each night, which made the performances more precise, but less spontaneous.

Yea, I’d agree. There was one jackas who kept doing that in Rochester, and it was so obviously obnoxious I think the guy finally got it and stopped. Back when he had Larry and Charlie on guitar the band cooked, most show were ga floor and the crowd was up and swaying/dancing for the most part, with everyone tuned in, band and crowd alike. I miss that, and him mixing up the setlist, but still dig what he is putting out there. I do like loud rock and roll though, god bless the stones and what is left of the Grateful Dead
