1999 is a very, very great year for Dylan and the Never Ending Tour. The preceding American leg was great (but underated),
next was the European tour (this one), and then followed the testosterone-fuelled dual-billing North American concerts/battles with first Paul Simon and then Phil Lesh.

1999 Europe offers beautiful, laid-back and majestic performances of a large portion of his repertoire.
Like the rest of 1999, Bob performed a small core of songs regularly and a huge number of songs only once or twice.

Europe 1999 is one of the great performance peaks of the NET, and thanks to Schubert, Bach and others, it is almost all available in wonderful sound.
Bach v Schubert? Bach is brighter and more transparent, Schubert is rich and full due to sound-processing.
Generally, Bach is better for acoustic songs and Schubert for electric but it is not that simple – there are many exceptions.

All the known generally circulating Bach and Schubert FLAC, along with many other unspecified tapers, were tracked down for this compilation.
The FLAC was then converted to mp3@320kbps for comparison, song by song, on a 160GB ipod with high-end earplugs.

High art by any standard – performed everywhere from classic opera houses to bullrings to flying saucers to snow-covered mountain tops (outdoor concert, of course!).

66 different songs were played in Europe in 1999 – they are all represented here. So are all 21 concerts played over four weeks from early-April to early-May.

  1. Right on. I’ve got the preceeding US in my pocket player. Just been listening on my rounds. Absolutely fab stuff. Still not convinced that 2000 is any less worthy however. The usual claim seems to be that the band were not as hot in 2000. Can’t hear that myself. The 99 performances may be slightly more dynamic at times, 2000 however is just majestic vocally and the softer and acoustic material really shines. Splitting hairs really. They are both stunning years IMHO
