This is the 5th Show of Bob Dylan’s 1984 tour with former Rolling Stones guitarist
Mick Taylor. The songs are starting to have a little life in them but still they are far
from what they will become in the coming weeks. Taylor still is feeling his way
around them but vocally Bob is starting to groove. Compare “Every Grain of Sand,”
“I and I,” “License to Kill” and “Masters of War” compared with later versions (or
with Real Live if that’s all you have) and see how far Taylor will take these songs.
We get a couple of gems on this one. Again we get “Why Do I Have to Choose” (the
only cover on the tour) and Dylan really sings great on it this night and Mick Taylor’s
slide is just about perfect. Also, Joan Baez joins Bob for a great version of “Blowing
in the Wind” and “I Shall Be Released.” “Forever Young” is a great treat here also.
Right now is the 20th Anniversary of those shows and I thought it would be cool to
release each show to STG on the date of the actual show plus 20 years. So, here is the
fifth show and we’ll see if I can keep up with the rest of the tour. Enjoy.

Santana report: Plays the lead on “Why Do I Have to Choose” beginning at 2:46 and
even though his tone does not fit the song, at least he doesn’t hit any wrong notes this
time. This guy is bad. These shows really highlight how BAD Santana was, playing
in the wrong key, at the wrong time, bad tone and playing a part which did NOT fit
into the song. What was Bob thinking with this guy? No artwork, enjoy!

  1. Yes, must agree on the Santana comments. Heard him play elsewhere stepping all over the sound of his hosts songs, not in flow of music.

  2. A friend of mine once commented that Dylan’s collaboration with Tom Petty & the Dead came at a time when Petty & Garcia were having difficult times with drugs and their health. Perhaps that’s what was going on with Carlos?? I’m not well versed with his life and I’m just speculating here…
