You missed the opportunity to say Highway 61 Revisited revisited.

I'm disappointed.

Highway 61 Revisited

sorry for the semi-self link, but I couldn't pass up the irony

"I started out on burgundy
But soon hit the harder stuff" = pretty much a recap of my weekend. Nice post by the way.

Some random clicking after following the links above led to this:
Dylan plays with the Scruggs Boys (wish more of this episode were available, the first song isn't so great) and
Flatt and Scruggs plays a Dylan tune on the Beverly Hillbillies

Who knew?

Alvy, that's crazy, and then John Voight shows up as an announcer right at the end. I had no idea Chabad has such pull.

Great idea for a post, Omie. Can you do it for the Folkways Anthology next, please? ;)

Great clips, but I'll raise you Isis ('75).

I would, but I can never get past Disc 1, Track 13, for some reason. ;)

Great links, and a nod to JBennett for that Isis clip (anyone know who's playing bass? He rocks!).

Rob Stoner, I would guess. I saw a British stop on the Rolling Thunder Revue, but it was a while back.

On further research, I realize the British show I saw was not part of the Rolling Thunder Revue, but the first British show Dylan did thereafter.

It is definitely Rob Stoner on bass. The Hartford Rolling Thunder show was one of the first concerts I went to on my own, and it still ranks as one of the best I've seen.

I also witnessed Dylan's "rebirth" set at Woodstock '94; I went specifically because the Band was also there and there were rumors that Robbie Robertson would be there for a great reunion. That didn't happen but Dylan was smokin'. It was the first show, I believe, with the core group he plays with now.

I've seen Bob probably ten times since then, and every show has been great. There's always mucho music - he doesn't engage in much conversation. And while his voice has gone a little reedy, his guitar skills have gone way up and he still is a great writer and superb phraser. He is also a heavy improviser - you never know what kind of treatment the songs are going to get.

Dylan is a national treasure. If you get a chance to see him, take it.

Thanks, OmieWise.

Judas!

Just kidding. This is great, OmieWise.

Benny, I agree with your sentiment, but I always thought you put treasures in museums. I don't think Bobby is anywhere near ready for that yet.

This is an great post. Thank you, OmieWise.

Agreed; I have caught him all 3 times he has come to Augusta and never been less than thrilled. You're right-he is all about the music without a bunch of theatrics and chatter.

OMG have you seen the new Bob Dylan biopic trailer with Cate Blanchlett playing Bob Dylan? Also, David Cross plays Allen Ginsburg.
its freaky

That's going to be awesome. Christian Bale plays Bob, too.

Also, thanks OmieWise

Bob is THE man, no doubt. All your favorite bands suck by comparison, and they are unimportant and meaningless too.

by the way, growabrain has one of the best Dylan pages out there.

Was that David Lee Roth on the scooter with Alan Ginsburg?

Nothing like a little Dylan after a long Monday at work...

...and then I looked at growabrain's Dylan page. Perfect.
