  1. Personally I like these two dates a lot.

    I don’t know what cocktail Dylan was taking on
    the 16th but at one point (if memory serves me well)
    he says: I wish we could play here for you every
    night…. coming from Mr Z that is a compliment almost
    unparalleled in the known universe I would suggest !!

    🙂

  2. I’ve had a few versions of these great shows over the years (complete Santa Cruz etc), but not this ‘remaster’

    If JTT is circulating then maybe i should give it a go

    Hope you had a mellow Thanksgiving Mat, and to all others for whom this is relevant.

  3. I just cant get enough of this year. I’ve got a few more from 2000 and then we will move on. Anyone want to suggest the next year I should latch onto?

  4. Mat

    ‘Fall’ 2002 would be very worthy of your time. There are some great recordings too

    In many ways it’s the last truly great period, and the Warren Zevon covers are worth the effort on their own

  5. If you want to go backwards instead then April ’99, Australia (early) ’82. March/April ’95, or my personal favourite Oct 89>feb ’90

    All are littered with superb performances and also some ex recordings

  6. Agreed – LOVING the Dylan 2000 shows you’ve posted, Mat – I like DylanDave’s suggestion of Fall 2002 next.

    And I’d love to hear some from Freddy Koella’s era in general – I am a bit controversial in thinking he might be Dylan’s best guitarist ever. (No, that’s not a typo – and yes, I love Michael Bloomfield, Robbie Robertson and Larry Campbell, to name just a few luminaries from his bands!)

    Koella toured with Dylan during 2003 and 2004. So, so good.

  7. Grant,

    agreed Re Freddy, would have loved to hear him in the band in a period when Bob’s voice wasn’t under such obvous strain at times. Maybe we would have got more great stuff in the style of ‘Durango’ from London ’03. Still some of the arrangements were great – some were bl**dy awful too of course!

    Maybe we should have a poll for the ultimate NET tour band – bit of fun. Bass picks itself of course and for me personally it just has to be Christopher Parker on the drums. Just magnificent, he’s got the lot, shuffle beats ‘n’ all. Also the way that Bob in particular and also the whole band responded to the tempos he laid down in the early stages of NET. Itt all come to a head in that oct 89>feb ’90 period. Just one of the reasons I love those shows so much and keep banging on about them so much.

    Didn’t know Freddy played with Larry, always loved Larry’s playing with Bob too. Kept the roots element to the fore and also helped the vocals in that period when the band were putting out really ‘strong’ performances

  8. Good one DylanDave. I’m not a musician, so I tend to notice the guitarist more than the rhythm section. I do like George Recile too on drums, and Dylan must too because he’s been in the pocket a long time.

    I also think Donnie Herron doesn’t get enough acclaim… when you see the show live, you see how much Dylan looks over to Donnie – and how Donnie is glued to Dylan’s every move, just like Tony Garnier has been all thru the NET – and I think Donnie’s subtle colorings on steel, mandolin, etc are crucial to the overall sound.

    • Sorry didn’t even think to check to make sure the Flacs were still there. When I get home I’ll repost them. If I still have them. Hope I didn’t lose them I The last hard drive crash.

    • I was wrong. I don’t have the FLAC files. It appears they were corrupted when I originally posted them and I never found the proper ones. I have posted both of these shows in lossless from different sources the links to which you can now find in this post.

      • I hate that when it happens. I burned a Dylan boot to cd years back and deleted the source files. When i tried to play the cd it gave me problems and i couldn`t rip the cd either. I don`t know what happened to the cd it played when i first burned it. As a precaution i went through my boot cds and archived them to new dvds. EAC and CDEX do a good job at ripping.

    the flac folder for this one seems to be only 03-15, & missing the first two songs.

    Hmmm. I seem to be missing those two songs in my original files. And my disk three is pulling up corrupt right now. I’m pulling the link on this one. I’ll try to get a full copy of it and repost.

    Lots of great releases of these shows, poss many, if not all, originate from the same source. From memory, I think I settled on the Crystal Cats in the end (as I so often do). This is one of the best ‘non’cat’ recordings of 2000, and their post prodn mastering etc are up there with the best anyway. Occasionally they are ‘trumped’ of course, but not too often and not by much. At most it is usually a subjective call.

    I already found a different source (or maybe the same source but not the Bruno Remaster) from TUBE. I’ll get them posted sometime soon.

    The first source i ever got for this was ‘raw’ on CDR – Wasn’t too much wrong with that as i recall. I think people like remastering these ‘peachy’ sources as it makes ’em look good!
