Full Show – Bob Dylan: March 21, 2001 in Melbourne, Australia.

Hi everyone,

It’s been so long since my last post here.

Since then I started DylanTube.com – it got shut down – then another bloke took it over and he got shut down too.

Originally – my idea was to make a space to share Bob Dylan videos and discuss them away from YouTube – where the comments section was a junk pile.

Anyway – here’s a new post. My first Bob Dylan concert. Dad dragged me along – I didn’t really like Bob that much at the time. I was about 14.

My family and I were a fair way back at Rod Laver stadium in Melbourne. When I saw that little guy down there start playing ‘Don’t Think Twice it’s All Right’ (https://youtu.be/-ZqgoNXiC1o?t=31m16s), a song of his I liked at the time, my heart melted. It was a life changing moment for me and I’ve never been the same since.

Enjoy!! Bob and the boys were in fine form in 2001!

 

Bob Dylan ripping through Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right – Woodstock ’94

If you watched ‘It Ain’t Me Babe’ from this same show you might be thinking – this must have been great show. I am only hearing the performances for the first time now and there is something funny about the way Bob Dylan is delivering the songs.

Perhaps that was the kind of performances he was giving around the time. If you ask me I think he still felt bitter about the hippies cramping his style back in the 60s and is giving a ‘fuck you woodstock’ kind of delivery.

Maybe he regretted not playing at the original Woodstock and he was trying to make up for it.

Here is a Great version of Don’t Think Twice to my ears. I didn’t know how they were going to lift the song off the ground at first but they soon enough sorted out a rockin’ groove – pretty fast too. It wears me out just thinking about playing the double bass like Tony Garnier in a song like this. Great band.

Bob Dylan playing at Woodstock ’94 – It Ain’t Me Babe

For someone who wasn’t too hot on the whole ‘Woodstock’ idea he gave a amazing performance for ‘Woodstock 1994’.

What a massive crowd there was that night – so tame.

Dylan sings beautifully on this number and he really puts effort in.

Who says Dylan can’t play guitar? I think he can and he proves it to us here.

A guy youtube said he couldn’t play harmonica very good – he said he only gets away with it ‘coz he’s Bob Dylan.

I thought that was bullshit.

POLL – What electric guitar brand should Bob Dylan use?

In your opinion of course!

Bob Dylan performing ‘Pretty Peggy-O’

I’ve been meaning to post this one for a while now and I could never forget it. I rate this performance very high.

I don’t even know the date or venue but my guess would be some time in 1998 about mid-year. If anyone knows the date and venue of this show, please let me know!

The band would have been:
David Kemper – Drums
Tony Garnier – Bass
Bucky Baxter – Pedal Steel
Larry Campbell – Guitar

This is only the second version of this song I’ve heard. Post sixties of course. Did he do it much in the early 60s?
Anyway, the first version I heard was from a copy of the ‘Mercury Lounge’ show in Melbourne, 1998. I’m pretty sure there weren’t a huge amount of seats sold and many would have been reserved. Was/is the ‘Mercury Lounge a part of Melbourne’s Crown Casino. Don’t know and I don’t really care – they played an awesome show.

What I care about is the way Dylan uses his voice in this period of his career – particularly 1997-1998. To me the melody lines and phrasing patterns Bob uses vocally are very sound and executed, delivered brilliantly.The chord progression is beautiful in this version of the age-old song Pretty Peggy-O, which would go by many a’name as well. The song is elegantly performed by Bob Dylan and his band.
