Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan

For years some kind soul, or maybe lots of kind souls have put together compilations of various artists covering Bob Dylan songs in concert. They call the comps “Nobody Sings Dylan Like Dylan.” To date they are up to 41 volumes. I’ve posted a few of them over the years, but someone on Expecting Rain uploaded almost all of them to Mega. I try not to post other people’s links on here but since Expecting Rain is a public forum you can just visit the original post and grab them.

Bob Dylan in Germany, 2011

bob dylan germany 2011

I’ve been working diligently on organizing all my files and getting my list up to date. I’m currently in the middle of a bunch of Bob Dylan shows. This batch is already labeled so that they sort chronologically so all I have to do is input them onto my list and then move them to the correct folder. So, I feel like I’m following Bob around on tour. One of the really fascinating things to me about Bob on tour, at least in the last decade or so, is that because he is touring all the time he no longer feels the need to just hit the big cities that everybody else plays at. He seemingly likes to play in more obscure corners of the world. I really feel like he’s trying to perform in every city on the planet.

In 2011 he did a big tour of Europe and on that tour, he played five shows in Germany. Now Germany is a big country, but I doubt any other artist plays five different German cities on their tours of Europe. Naturally, he plays in Berlin and Munich, but he also did stops in Oberhausen and Leipzig. No offense to those fine cities, and while they aren’t exactly obscure or tiny villages, neither are they the sorts of places big-named American rock and roll acts usually gig at.

Or maybe they do. What the heck do I know about concerts in Germany? I just think it’s cool that Bob’s list of cities he’s played a show at is enormous.

All of this is really just to say that I wanted to play around with my Google Drive a little more and I wanted to think about how my blog might look like in the future. I’ve talked a little about not wanting to do individual show posts anymore but maybe trying bigger posts with multiple shows in them.

So here is me posting six shows from Bob Dylan in Germany in 2011.

2011-10-23 – Oberhausen, Germany
2011-10-25 – Mannheim, Germany
2011-10-26 – Munich, Germany
2011-10-27 – Leipzig, Germany
2011-10-29 – Berlin, Germany
2011-10-31 – Hamburg, Germany

I haven’t listened to any of these shows so I can’t comment on the quality of the recording or the performance. I know 2011 isn’t exactly a year that Dylan nerds are constantly praising so it is a bit obscure that I’m randomly posting this. I was really just doing my sorting and thought it was cool that he did six gigs in Germany.

Please do let me know if you have any trouble with the links. But I’m also interested in what you think about doing posts like this. I like the idea of maybe doing posts like this once every couple of weeks or so. My plan would be to do something slightly larger, maybe include the entire European tour or something like that. But the basic format would be the same. I’d like to be able to say something interesting about the batch that I post and then would include links that would look something like what I’m posting here.

Does that make sense? Does that sound good?

This batch pretty much fills up my Google Drive for the moment, so I won’t be able to post anything more until I upgrade. I do have some Paypal money from the last begging session so I will be able to upgrade without begging again. But as I’ve noted in previous posts I really do want to get all my sorting done before I post regularly.

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.

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.

Notes are his.

This series features all the rarer performances from each leg of the tour. All the ‘one-off’ and less commonly performed songs are included. Songs performed (mostly) every night are not included. The songs have been re-assembled into approximate concert order. The songs have been chosen to be the best version from either quality or performance where several performances or recordings exist. All recordings are from DAT, none from Bootleg. All shows from each leg are represented. The songs have been ‘re-balanced’ for loudness so that the songs flow smoothly. The transitions between songs have been blended for smoothness as well.

From my old DAT (received in trade 1998-02-19). I think I heard enough differences here (CUTstart track 01, foreground whoops at the end of track 02) to say this is a different recording from the current LB’s.

FIRST SHARED: 2016-02-27

WHAT I DID: DAT > WAV > Sound Forge (split intro tracks) > FLAC > MP3tag (tagging).

WHAT I DID NOT DO: resample the files (they remain @ 48 khz, just as on the original DAT, so you will have to convert them yourself in order to burn to CD).

All thanks to the original taper and to the person who sent me the DAT!
