Chimes of Freedom – Live at Bill Clintons Inaugural Concert in Washington, DC on January the 17th, 1993

Here we see Bob Dylan singing ‘Chimes of Freedom’ at Bill Clinton’s Inaugural Concert in 1993.
Bill and Hillary appear to thoroughly enjoy Bob’s presence and his choice of song.

Dylan has this song finished in little more than 3 minutes and when I first watched this I was on the edge of my seat the whole time thinking he would completely flunk a verse. It was just too fast and the band’s music sounded rushed as did Dylan’s vocals. Perhaps there were time restrictions or Bob just wanted to do it that way. Wouldn’t suprise me at all!

Chimes of Freedom was first released on “Another Side of Bob Dylan” in 1964
