Bob Dylan and Joan Baez performing With God On Our Side on Peace Sunday, June the 6th, 1982

It is always a great thing to see the King and Queen of Folk music get up on stage and sing together.

Most of us have seen Bob and Joan sing this classic song in the early sixties and mid seventies and it is good to see them up on stage together more recently – even though it was about 26 years ago. Apparantly their last live public performance together was in 1984 which is a shame. I would love to see them do some duets together today as I think she would be one person that would keep Dylan on his toes.

What do you think of the jacket Bob wears in this video? I think it looks cool as snow. Bob looks in particulary good shape here probably due to being more sensible with his lifestyle?
Joan sort of looks like a school teacher singing a song to her young students. I think this performance is a good one anyway – What do you think?

Dignity Live in Sheffield, 2000

If you don’t want to feel the hairs on the back of neck stand up – DON”T WATCH THIS!

Great video of a great performance of a great song here.
I never really got into this song as much until I heard the outtake on Tell Tale Signs. I can tell Bob really respects this song, which would be one of the reasons he left it alone when he released Oh Mercy.

I’ve said it before on DylanTube and I’ll say it again. Bob Dylan in 2000-2001 kicks ass. I believe it is a peak in his live career. I love his cruised out approach to delivering songs, the way he holds his fender stratocaster, the way he looks in general. In my opinion this would be one of his best band combinations also. Charlie Sexton, Larry Campbell, Tony Garnier and David Kemper – there is some good chemistry with them and they helped Bob rise in a big way.

Bob does a pretty good lead solo at ’round about the 3 minute mark and Tony’s bass playing is pretty punchy indeed.

Enjoy this one friends and don’t be afraid to leave your own comment.

Big River (Johnny Cash cover) – Live in Baltimore, Maryland November the 8th, 1999

This one is a video of Bob covering the great Johnny Cash song ‘Big River’. In my humble opinion this is fantastic audience footage. Whoever shot this must have been very happy with this. Bob is having a good time playing great sounding guitar and even does a lead solo.

The Essential Johnny Cash (CD)

Time Out Of Mind (1997) CD

1986 Australian Interview with Maurice Parker

I’ve never seen this one before! It’s a great interview Bob done while he was in Australia in 1986. Bob says that he only writes songs that are easy to write. If they are too hard he drops them. Bob is in a good mood and enjoys the interview. Bob even let the program record part of his concert one night and we get to see part of ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ He talks about feeling uncomfortable in crowded rooms, what love and romance is to him and what makes him laugh.
This is a must see!

Renaldo, Clara and Woman in White Love Triangle

A love triangle between Renaldo/Bob Dylan, Clara/Sara Dylan and Woman in White/Joan Baez. Renaldo is confronted by the two ladies over his cheating behaviour (lol perfect role for Bob). The ladies unite against him. Notice how Joan Baez no longer speaks with the fake Gypsie accent, as if she is not really playing a character but is her real self. This blurring of characters makes the whole movie on the one hand interesting but on the other difficult to understand and follow. What do you think?

Thank you again to Kafka05 for all that work! – http://au.youtube.com/user/Kafka05

It would be insane not to finish this post off with yet another clip from ‘Renaldo and Clara’. This is Bob performing ‘Sara’. The alternate lyrics are amazing, such as “I was too young to know that you were doing it right. And you’re doing it with strength that belonged to the gods” Wow.

Video of myself covering Alberta – Recorded today

I have recorded many Dylan songs over the last 6 years or so and I think Alberta was the first song I did. Alberta is a traditional song that opened and closed Dylan’s album Self Portrait (1970).

I have a strong love for this song and I hope you all enjoy this as much as I enjoyed playing it.
