This looks good – many thanks!
For me the close of the fall tour 2001 was the end of Dylan’s
“glory years” – thereafter I start to lose interest. Purely personal of
course. And there’s no question he still continued to deliver the goods,
albeit more infrequently. (Eg, the 2006 reworking of Maggies Farm,
which blows me away). But my philosophy is why would I spend time
listening to shows from, say, 2004 when there isn’t enough time in my
life to enjoy even just the nineties legacy !??
That said, Spring/Summer 2005 in the states is a real highlight (chronologically
relatively speaking) imho, with many gems just waiting to be mined
– look forward to giving this a blast.
True these aren’t the best years of Bob, but i’ve found plenty of interest in some of the more country arrangements etc and these anthologies collections etc usually offer some stuff of interest. The London Brixton shows were beautifully captured (as always) by Crystal Cat, but shows were rather uninspired.
Certainly better now, but little can compare to the glory years of 1998-2000
ps the US ‘Fall’/Autimn tour of 2002 is a notable exception IMHO
can you re-upload Disc 3? It seems to be omitted. Only Track 3-01 showed up on the Disc 2 download. Thank you so much for compiling this. I have beautiful memories of seeing this tour at the Masonic Temple in Detroit.
(omission I’m referring to is the mp3 320k version)
Try it now DreamLikeDylan. Sorry about that.
Tony I feel the same way for anything after about 1978 with the Grateful Dead. I know there is some good stuff after that, but there’s also a lot of mediocre stuff too. Which tends to make me not spend a lot of time with it since I know the really good stuff is before then.
I’m still feeling my way through Bob’s stuff which is why I love this blog and the comments it gets. You guys are awesome.
I rarely come across any of the 2005 material. These are fine performances from Bob and band, I especially like the relaxed “Ring them bells”, fine singing.
I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to hear this, and all the other fine Bob concerts out there. Once again, big thanks – you are a champion for posting!
Thanks so much Mat. I love the Dylan you post on this blog. I don’t share people’s feelings about Dylan falling off after 2000-2002. I think 2005 is still great, great music.
Likewise, I would extend the good Dead period until 1981. There are time warp days on that tour where they sound like ’77 again.
Trouble is 2003 was mostly AWFUL, 2004 was very patchy apart from the country covers, ‘sing me back home’ etc. But a quick listen to the Crystal Cats from europe 2000 or USA OCT/NOV 2002 will quickly establish Bob’s voice and band are on another level altogether
It was coming back together a bit in 2005 but it;s been a long slow recovery with plenty of intervening lows this time!
Still haven’t listened to this stuff since 05 so gonna approach it with new ears
here are the setlists.

So glad these are still up! I was at all 3 shows. Wonderful memories. Thank you very much!
Got to agree with DylanDave about 2003. We saw the Sheffield show. Not only awful but after a few acoustic guitar numbers , he played a keyboard placed at a right angle to the audience. He was facing our side of the arena but the opposite side basically watched his back for almost the whole concert!
My first Dylan show was in Indianapolis in 2003 and it was pretty rough. The band wasn’t very energized and his voice was like tar filled gravel.
Well, he’s been booed so many times…
Is it possible that you re-upload this one on Google Drive ? I’m a big fan of these 2005 shows. I would appreciate this very much.
I can do that. I should have it up next Monday.
Ok thanks. I’ll see it next monday.
