I just heard this on the radio. I guessed that an 8-year-old wrote it.

Actually he was 9, but he was sick at the time.

The 3rd movement is only 84 seconds long.

STOCKHOLM '98

At last! My first show in seven long years. Decent seats in row 17. Not
much to say about the "special guest", I think. Fairly tight sound, but
she seemed to be acting in a much too evident way. I usually can't stand
people who play air-guitar (or air-drums for that matter), and this was
no exception. The drummer was the only one who really was on stage, and
had a reason to be there. I'm not going to buy the record.
Then a long (slightly too long) break when nothing seemed to be
happening, except for a lady creating such a commotion that she was
escorted out of the audience and placed in one of the upper galleries
where she couldn't disturb anyone. Too bad for her, I guess, but good
for the rest of us. That's life.
Then, finally, His Bobness (or is it Bobliness?) enters. The first song
is

1. All Along The Watchtower
in the same new arrangment that has been used in the last few shows. I
really like it. It sounds like a mixture of the TOOM sound and Series of
dreams (the drums). Slow, but with a lot happening on the surface level,
so to speak. At the title phrase comes the first shivers of the evening.
Spooky.

2. Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You
Overall good - nothing special, really. "Thanks everybody" #1.

3. Cold Irons Bound
Introduced as "one of my newer ones". Rather shorter intro than on the
earlier shows I've heard. A magnificent rendition. I was struck by a lot
of things: How tight the band is, how good the song is and that Dylan
seems to have a lot of fun.

4. Every Grain of Sand
The first really pleasant surprise! I do miss the heavy 1995 version,
but this is the second best.

5. Silvio
No surprises here! Hard-driving rock'n'roll. And it *is* an amusing
song!

6. Desolation Row @
The @ should perhaps be replaced by a more appropriate sign - not much
of a change from the electric set, except that they play acoustic
guitars/bass. The presence of bass/drums also in the ac. set has the
effect that even potentially slow/quiet songs become uptempo rockers.
D-Row gets a fair treatment with some really delightful moments.

7. One Too Many Mornings @ (w/harp)
Surprise number two. This is the one song where it is most difficult not
to compare with 1966... I'm not much affected by this version. It merits
inclusion here for the short (but sweet) harp solo. Hand-held harp and
mike, which evidently created some trouble when it got stuck in the
shoulder strap of the guitar, but it all worked out fairly well. Nice to
hear the celestial instrument again anyway.

8. Tangled Up in Blue @
I was expecting Masters of War here, but they went straight to Tangled.
Not much to say about this one either - I'm beginning to like the new,
fast version.

9. To Make You Feel My Love
The only really quiet song of the evening.

10. Wheel's on Fire
Pleasant surprise number three! And a really pleasant one at that! I
really like this version, with Larry's low riffs and the slowly broken
dim-chords. Beautiful!

11. Highway 61 Revisited
OK.

12. Forever Young @
OK2.

13. Love Sick
Before the show started, the lady behind me had a discussion with her
partner about the new album ("What is it called? Time out...? Time out
of mind? Yes I think it is that?" "That first song is really marvellous"
etc.) I turned around after Forever Young to see her reaction, and the
look on her face when she heard the first chords and realised what was
coming up, that was worth at least a third of the ticket! It was a
welcome reminder that Dylan is enjoyed even by those who don't remember
the title of his latest album. Of course it was sung/played wonderfully.

14. Rainy Day Women #12&35
Lights on, people rushing to the stage. He really seemed to be enjoying
himself up there. Looong guitar solos. And he's actually getting better
at it, it seems. Lots of knee bending, splits, even a tad of a duck walk
at one point, small dance steps. It looks slightly awkward, of course,
but it feels good!

15. Blowin' in the Wind @
Crowd pleaser? I guess so.

And now off for Gothenburg.

My love isn't dead! Come back to me, baby. Come back to your gypsy Panties. Don't you remember that night on the beach? We can work it out. We can make it happen again. If you don't come back, I'm going to send you to hell. You won't be able to stop me. Nor will the Pinz and his motley crew.

So Pinzego is Miss Panties; I suspected as much.

Greek Theatre
Berzerkley
October 11, 2009


I thought that last night's Berkeley show was very good but not excellent, a
bit disappointing, really, but tonight's show was not a bit short of phenomenal.
After about 25 shows, I'd say tonight was one of the very best. My Dylan
buddy, David, declared this his favorite show ever … and I don't think he
meant just his favorite Dylan show.

What accounts for the dramatic difference? I thought that the set list last
night had a long run of pretty mediocre songs. What can one say about
"Tweedle Dee," except that it's by far the worst song on an album that
otherwise, I think, is his best since "Blood on the Tracks"? "I Don't Believe
You" was never a great song and the arrangement was dull. It didn't go
anywhere, and neither did very good songs like "The Man in Me" and even
the super-rare "Mama, You've Been On My Mind". "Spirit On the Water" is
not a great song and the version was dull," and "Cold Irons Bound" was
very good but lacked the thrilling mayhem of the band's versions a few
years ago.

There were definitely some real high points, the best of which was "Hattie
Carroll," especially when Dylan walked out to center stage from behind the
key board to sing the final verse with total commitment. "My Wife's
Hometown" and "Ballad of a Thin Man" were also superb. And, as all the
other reviewers this week have said, having Charlie Sexton back is a gigantic
upgrade in terms of musicianship, freshness, fun and visual dynamics. But
still, almost half of the set list was weak, in my opinion, and somehow the
band rarely clicked into high gear.

But none of those shortcomings applies to tonight's show. Dylan and the
band were totally in gear from the first moment, and every song made a
strong and dynamic statement. First of all, the set list was excellent. When
I see Dylan I want not just great music but great lyrics. I know they can
rock 'n roll, but lots of bands can do that. Tonight, from "Love and Theft"
we got "High Water" and "Honest with Me" instead of the aforementioned
lyrically awful "Tweedle Dee". If it's possible to choose, for me the best
performances were the slow, quiet songs: the atmosphere for "This Dream
of You," "Tryin' to Get to Heaven," "My Wife's Hometown," "Hard Rain," and
perhaps most of all, "Forgetful Heart," were utterly incredible. Barely a sound
was heard from the crowd of 8,000 during those many minutes of subtle
beauty. Dylan's voice was clear and strong, and his phrasing was continuously
inventive and meaningful. And the music for each was dream-like, evocative
and moving.

Even songs that evoked little last night were stunning and fresh tonight. I'm
thinking of "Thunder on the Mountain" in particular, which did little last night
but tonight featured Charlie's best solo, an absolute thriller, which then inspired
Dylan to break into what seemed to be a thoroughly spontaneous, improvised
organ solo, with Charlie throwing in filler riffs around it. To show how sterling
the show tonight was, even "LARS," which I often have to struggle to listen
to with a fresh ear, tonight was fresh, with new changes in dynamic range
and Charlie having all kinds of fun improvising.

That's one thing that is so great about having Charlie back. He's loose. He's
creating. He's mischievous. And, believe it or not, he is up there having fun.
What a change for the usually grim, constricted band! Shouldn't making music
be joyful and playful? This is all especially wonderful because I found it very
frustrating in the early years of this decade to watch Dylan taking most of the
guitar solos, with mediocre playing at best, while he had two great guitarists,
Larry and Charlie, standing around him strumming chords. It wasn't until
Charlie's last few months with the band that Bob moved over to keyboards
and gave the aforementioned guitar virtuosos room to spread out and play.
But it appears that in the intervening six years, Charlie's stature has grown
enormously in Bob's eyes and it now could fairly be called "Bob Dylan and His
Band, featuring Charlie Sexton." Charlie also keeps in eye contact with all of
the band members and has them all smiling at his antics throughout the show.
It's great to see.

One's personal experience always influences what one thinks of a concert.
Last night, I was right in front of Dylan about four rows back from the stage,
but it was disappointing not to be at the rail after waiting on line for over six
hours. And a tall guy near the front with a cowboy hat was blocking part of
my view throughout most of the show. But tonight, waiting on line the same
amount of time, we got the revered front rail position for the first time ever.
It was like Dylan and his band playing just for us, with no one obstructing our
view or trying to squeeze in front of us. (I must say that the Berkeley crowd
both nights was completely orderly and well-behaved … unlike the drunken
bar brawl that was the standing area at the Stockton baseball field a couple
of months ago, complete with a fist fight and drunken Mellencamp fans by
the score
.)

What a gift to see Dylan on a night when everything clicked for him and the
band, and when they are in the midst of a creative surge due to the return
of Mr. Sexton! Every style of song they tried, which was a vast range, hit
right on the mark. It was a beautiful thing to behold.

I wrote you last week and you didn't write back. Is that how you treat bruddha George too?


Which one better, pinz? Willie's or Gypsy's?






I can't decide which one I think is mo'bettah...but I'm definitely leaning towards Willie.

I answered back to eggo, and he promised he'd pass on the message to you. Did he screw it up again? Shocked

Mostly everything the Kings do is the best version, but the ragged vocal isn't working for me--I think I prefer Willie.
