Bootlegs of the Day: May 22, 2023 – Bob Dylan

Happy Bob Dylan Monday. Today I’ve got several shows from Bob’s European tour with Carlos Santana in 1984. I’ve marked the times the show notes indicate Carlos actually playing with Bob but I didn’t spend a lot of time digging into it. So it is possible that I missed some.

Bob Dylan & Carlos Santana – 1984.05.29 – Sirmione, Italy – Press Conference

Bob Dylan – 1984.06.11 – Offenbach, Germany

Bob Dylan – 1984.06.14 – Vienna, Austria

Bob Dylan – 1984.06.20 – Rome, Italy – w/Carlos Santana in the encores

Bob Dylan – 1984.06.28 – Barcelona, Italy

From a 1st gen. audience VHS tape. Decent quality “stage recording” audio from a 1st gen. VHS tape. As is typical for this type of audience recording the instruments sound great but the vocals are a bit in the background. Carlos is out there for most of the set but there are 3 other guitarists and he is the guest so he doesn’t solo that much. But there are a few really ripping guitar solos if you know where to find them. Since the DVD video will have AC3 (Dolby Digital) audio this lossless version is for those who might want it this way too. I’m posting this before the video because I need some help with the setlist for the DVD authoring. I did the best I could but any additions/corrections will be much appreciated and the DVD video will follow shortly.

Bob Dylan – I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Rich – 1984 European Tour

Bob Dylan
Pink Panther Records

Download FLAC: Amazon Drive

You have got to give Bob an A+ for getting hold of quality musicians.
Here we get John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers (1969 version) alumini Mick Taylor & Colin Allen,
(with Mick Taylor having added to his CV being an ex-member of The Rolling Stones in the interim);
Faces legendary keyboard player Ian “MacHooligan” MacLagan;
Latin fusion guitarist Carlos Santana; & a relatively obscure American bass player named Greg Sutton.

So what happens when you put Bob together with blues purists & latin fusion – the shambolic 84 European Tour of course.

There was also a half-hearted attempt to integrate Joan Baez into the mess, but after a couple of failed attempts, she packed up & went home.

However, there is plenty of good music to keep you interested here & it is much better than the official Real Live album
mainly culled from the final two concerts in Wembley, London & Slane Castle, Ireland.

There are two very good sounding tapes from the circulating rehearsals in LA & Verona.

The concerts are more variable in performance & sound quality – when Mick Taylor is great he is really great,
but when he is off – oh well. Ian MacLagen’s keyboards are usually low in the sound mix, but not always –
there is some great electric piano to be heard here when the sound engineer turns him up.
& then there is Carlos Santana – if you think Mick Taylor is erratic, wait until you hear Carlos.

The setlists have a lot of surprises – while the shows have a large number of core songs,
this does not stop Bob from performing a lot of songs only occasionally.

There is also a lot of improvisation here – core songs get different treatments night after night – so the music is never boring.

Best concerts – Brussels, Goteborg, Offenbach & Nantes.

This tour is far better than many give it credit for – just stay away from the London & Slane “superstar” concerts.
