Bob Dylan’s 2022 Tour of Europe

Bob Dylan is currently embarking on a tour of England. The recordings are coming in pretty quickly. I’m not quite ready to collect and upload my own links for these shows, but I thought it would be fun to post other people’s links here as I find them. I’ll try to continue posting them as the tour moves on.

Show of the Day: Grateful Dead – New York, NY (09/19/70)

There is an app called Relisten which takes all the shows in the Live Music Archive and lets you stream them on your phone. It does a nice job of organizing them so you can browse by artist and search through each year, etc. One of my favorite things it does is when you click on an artist it will show you all the shows they played on that particular day.

On my drive to work, I often listen to a Grateful Dead show they played on whatever day it happens to be and this has been a really fun way of catching up with shows I might have missed.

I love the idea of having a show of the day on this site, so that’s one of the many ideas I have percolating through my little brain. I’m not sure if I’d like to talk about shows that happened to be performed on the day I happen to be writing about it, or maybe I could just choose one show to talk about each day.

Trouble would be being able to have the time to listen to an entire show and have something to say about it each day. I have no idea if I’ll actually regularly do something like that, but today I have something.

I meant to talk about it yesterday and forgot. In fact, I don’t have much to say about it except that you should listen to it.

On September 19, 1970 the Grateful Dead played a monster shows in New York City’s Fillmore East auditorium. They started with Sugar Magnolia and then launched into one of the all-time great jam-filled medleys: Dark Star>Not Fade Away>Darkness Jam>China Cat Jam>Not Fade Away>Turn On Your Lovelight.

It is about 70 minutes of the best music you’ll hear today. You can download it from me here, or stream it on the Archive here.

Bob Dylan Interviews, Documentaries, Etc.

I know some of you are scratching your head these days wondering what happened to my site. Where’s the music you wonder. Why are there suddenly movie reviews on my bootleg site, you scream at your cat.

I know, I know, etc.

I’d say I’m sorry, but I’m really not. I’ve often wanted to go back to making my site more pop culturally oriented and not just about the bootlegs. Amazon Drive going down has finally given me that excuse.

As I keep saying I will eventually get back to posting music again (but probably not until April, for that I will say “sorry”.) But I am almost certainly going to continue posting movies and other pop cultural tidbits.

But to at least give you music lovers something to grab, I found this over at the Archive. It includes some interviews and documentaries about Bob and it also has Sean Penn reading Dylan’s autobiography, so that’s something. Enjoy.

Philco & Friends – Bridgeview, IL (08/26/22)

I know I’ve posted a few of their shows on here, but I’ve never really talked about Wilco all that much in these parts. But they are one of my all-time favorite bands. I was pretty excited, then, to see that Jeff Tweedy and Nels Cline recently performed with Phil Lesh and Friends.

The show is now up at the Archive and it is a good one. I think Nels guitar works really well with these Dead tunes. There are some video snippets on Youtube and Phil sure looks like he’s having a great time.
