And here we are, the #1 most popular bootleg post. When I started this blog I had no idea how long it would last. When I first started posting bootlegs it was really just one more thing in the big pop cultural potpourri that I was posting to my little plot of webspace. I couldn’t have guessed they would completely take over the blog within a few years and that I’d still be plugging away ten years later. I have no complaints, this blog has brought me a lot of joy. I’ve met some pretty cool people and listened to and learned a lot about some really great music. So once again to all of you, thanks for making The Midnight Cafe such a great place, it wouldn’t exist without you.
Ten Years of Bootlegs #1: Bob Dylan – 1974 Soundboard Collection
Of course this is the biggest bootlegs on my site. It is Dylan, It is the Band, it is arguably one of the best tours ever, and its all from glorious soundboards.

I don’t know about you all, but I’ve had a lot of fun trolling through these old posts and seeing what’s most popular. It been really interesting to watch all the numbers go way up after I write a new Ten Years post and see everybody flock to the old post. I’m thinking about doing a regular post where I highlight some old show I posted ages ago. Might be a fun way to remind people of something maybe they didn’t see the first time. Maybe I’ll even ask for some guest writers to pick out a favorite show or something.
Anyways thanks for hanging around.
