Dylan Forever Young Live – David Letterman Show on the 18th of November, 1993

Wow Letterman has aged alot since this video – so has Bob. Almost 15 years ago! Bob went on this show to promote World Gone Wrong which was released on Oct 26, 1993.

This is one of my favorite Bob Dylan videos I’ve found. Bob knows he is being recorded for TV and he is living up to his standards. Wearing clothes a la Rolling Thunder Revue almost and the band is there to provide Bob with an amazing solemn groove with the usual amazing steel guitar from Bucky Baxter.

Bob plays a wonderful solo on the guitar around the 3:00 mark which makes the hairs on the back on my neck stand up!

This was a smoking band and there’s no doubt about it at all. I love the way sings this and I never thought gravel could be so smooth and beautiful.

Forever Young was first released on ‘Planet Waves’ in 1974. There are actually two different versions of the song on the record.


Pancho and Lefty – Live with Willie Nelson

The occasison for this performance was Willie Nelson’s 60th Birthday Celebration. This song is a real gem written by Townes Van Zandt. Great story about two cowboys. When you win it doesn’t mean you can’t lose.

Dylan is looking suave and delivers his lines steadily in a really cool tone. as and Willie Nelson wails like the country wailer he is.

I Shall Be Released Japan 1994

It is 6:36 here in Victoria, Australia and I am just about to goto bed but before I do I have to post this performace of I Shall Be Released from Japan in 1994. Dylan played a few shows there with a Japanese orchestra.
Great arrangement and its good to hear Dylan singing the song by himself without it being a sing along.
This is amazing! Enjoy

Releases around this time are MTV Unplugged (1995) and World Gone Wrong (1993)
