Bob Dylan videos from two thousand and beyond

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!

 

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.

Bob Dylan and Norah Jones performing I Shall Be Released

It doesn’t seem that long ago since Amazon held their 10th anniversary concert on July 16th, 2005. I remember hearing the mp3 of this performance and not thinking all that much about it. I just found this video today and I must say I really enjoyed it.
As usual Bob puts on a good show when a female is involved. Dylan’s piano playing seems to be a bit jazzier than usual as does his vocals.
It’s always good to watch professional videos of Bob and this is a particularly good duet. What do you think?

Victoria’s Secret Commercial 2004

I remember this was quite funny when I heard about this in 2004. Some may think it is strange but this may have been on Dylan’s ‘to do list’ for nearly 40 years.

At a 1965 press conference in San Francisco, Dylan was asked: “If you were going to sell out to a commercial interest, which one would you choose?” After a brief pause, the 24-year-old Dylan replied, “Ladies garments.” Or something along those lines anyway. You can find that press conference under the 1965 category on this very here blog.

The song played in the commercial is ‘Love Sick’ from the album ‘Time Out Of Mind’ (1997) – Buy it here from Amazon.com

“Dreamin’ of you” Film Clip

Here is the filmclip to the song “Dreamin’ of you” which was written in 1997 for the “Time out of Mind” sessions. If you listen to the lyrics you will find many lines from songs from Time out of Mind such as “Standing in the Doorway” and “Not Dark Yet”.
Harry Dean Stanton plays a bootlegger following Dylan around to archive his music. Archived Dylan footage is included throughout the filmclip.

This track is released for the first time on The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 – Tell Tale Signs and is available to buy from Amazon.com right now!

Lonesome Day Blues – Live in Philadelphia 2001

Smooth sounding version of Lonesome Day Blues performed in Philadelphia in 2001. This song was recorded by Bob Dylan and his Band in 2001 and was released on the album Love and Theft. I mentioned in another post how great the years 2000 and 2001 were for Dylan. He is as cool as ice. The band is once again Tony Garnier on Bass, Larry Campbell on Electric Guitar, Charlie Sexton also on Electric Guitar and David Kemper on Drums. Dylan even pulls some lead solos off on his Fender Stratocaster and does some of his mid sixties howling at times. Is Bob. Is Good

(The Philly video is long gone – so here’s one from New York 2001)

Lonesome Day Blues was released on Love and Theft (2001)

“Simple Twist of Fate” Live in Oberhausen 2000

I have heard alot of live bob dylan but I must say I’m glad I stumbled across this treat. Bob Dylan was in fine form in 2000-2001. I believe many performances from these two years are as good as any Dylan has given us.
Dylan gives us a well delivered version of “Simple Twist of Fate” from the 1975 record Blood on the Tracks.

Bob Dylan’s band at the time was Tony Garnier on bass, Larry Campbell on Pedal Steel, Charlie Sexton on Electric Guitar and David Kemper on the Drums.Listen to that pedal steel man!
