  1. Lovely, thanks Mat

    This is one of the early and radically different ’74 shows I have banged on about (sorry all!) so many times in the past.

    If you like your Bob edgy and intense check out these vocal performances. No shouting here like the later shows and the live album derived from them.

    Essential stuff IMO

    Got any more Mat? always looking to upgrade these Philadelphia and Chicago shows in particular.

  2. Cheers Mat,

    This is another tour which suffers from a severe lack of blog posts. You see the same few gigs posted over and over

    Anything you can find would be much appreciated. I also have a few i can share, i’ll check my archives too and see if there’s anything i can up for the good people of the cafe!.

    With this tour the ealier the date the better. I know that most of the SBDs come from the later feb shows, but in performance terms Jan is a clear winner.

  3. Rare performances of Nobody Cept You (Planet Waves outtake) and Tough Mama (Planet Waves) which were only performed 7 resp. 3 times ever, all in January 1974.
