After doing an all-nighter. Since I’ve started DylanTube I can barely sleep. I just want to keep on working on it to build it up. I am constantly checking stats and finding out if all my hard promo work is paying off. I find it to be very exciting stuff and I am confident DylanTube will grow into an healthy blog that has a tight relationship with Google.

Dylan’s performances at this concert were very warm and passionate. His deliveries are also fresh as this was one of the rare occasions he played live between 1966-1974. His voice isn’t quite as smooth as it was on Nashville Skyline (1969)/Self Portrait (1970) and not as rough as it was on Pat Garrett/Billy the Kid (1973) and Planet Waves (1974). I think we are watching a good Dylan here but I will say that about any performace he does.
This one is a stand out though! It features George Harrison on the Fender Stratocaster, Leon Russell on the Fender Precision bass and Ringo Starr on the tambourine! Wow-ie!
I love the way he sings it like a love song – lines like ‘sleeps in the sa – and’, ‘before they’re allowed to be free’ ‘blowin’ in the wind’.
Bob is the Best with a capital B!

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.
Buy Self Portrait (1970) from Amazon.com
