Thanks to Nellie at Expecting Rain.

I was going to call this 20th Century Blues, but marianne faithful beat me to it.One of the most productive four weeks in NET history – in terms of both quality & quantity – & most of it in great sound.Bob finished the 20th century with a short, sharp tour where he looked both forward & back – a sort of parallel to elvis’s ’68 comeback special, pieced together from two sitdown & another two standing sets.Bob had a month-long party with 22 concerts – all of which are represented here.

If you don’t like this, you don’t like bob – astonishing music with lots of pleasant surprises.

PS – the jokes have not improved.

  1. A really fine collection. I know Andy Muir and Paul Williams rate this leg highly: Bob sings exquisitely and Charlie Sexton and Larry Campbell offer sublime weaves and fills. Thanks for posting and thanks to all the tapers, heroes all!
