  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 !!

    šŸ™‚

  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.
