I really noticed his vocal degradation yesterday, while listening to his radio show. If his speaking voice has deteriorated so much, he must be having a rough time singing. I guess it goes to show that none of us are getting any younger.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: “Bob Dylan is the greatest singer-songwriter ever.” Anyone who doesn’t agree is worse than Hitler.
Great review; thanks, pissant!
I love this youtube for this summers tour of Tangled Up in Blue
Nice review and good summation at the end.
Charlie Sexton has had a hand in playing or producing a lot of good music over the years.
And I think the last time I saw him was when he showed up WITH a band!(for half the show anyway at Forest Hills c. 1967)
I’ll keep my eyes on the bit torrent sites and grab the recording when it comes out——usually within a few days.
Thanks for posting the review.
I’ll let you know what I can find. I want the small venue on October 4—that show looks to be good as well.....
Yeah, I’d have liked to have seen him at the Moore instead of WaMu, but I was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality. I was expecting an echo chamber when I saw it.
I’m guessing he’ll be debuting “Shake Shake Mama” live on his tour real soon. Got ‘Hometown’ last night. Certainly a highlight.
Wow. That’s a few years back.
A long time Dylan fan, he never ceases to amaze me. Although cliche, "Like a Rolling Stone" is a masterpiece that I never tire to hear. The sonic quality of the remastered SACD version is superb & highly recommended although now out of print. The lyrics are very personal to me and perhaps why I hold the song in such high reverence.
In addition to "LaRS", "All Along The Watchtower" (Hendrix version although dave mason does a great cover) and "To Make You Feel My Love" covered by Trisha Yearwood (in movie "Hope Floats") round out my all time top 3 Dylan songs...but so easy to name 3 others.
So many classic songs over so many years, decades actually. Dylan truly is the best at what he has done.
Yep, he fronted one of the greatest one-shot bands ever, the Arc Angels with Doyle Bramhall II, Chris Layton, and Tommy Shannon. That’s a pretty awesome Texas lineup right there. Apparently, they’re getting back together (minus Shannon) and releasing new material next year.
I have a Michael Fracasso CD on which Sexton played and produced. Good stuff.
Great review. Thanks for the ping.
When I saw Bob this summer, he played guitar on the first 2 songs and then organ the whole rest of the night. Not commenting as to whether this was good or bad, just it seemed unusual to me.
Nice choice, and thank you. That’s my favorite Dylan lyric of all time.
Well, I agree with the first part anyway...
