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.

Also features Carlos Santana and John McLaughlin on guitar, and Alphonze Mouzon on drums, during the encore.

“Badge” and “I Shot the Sheriff” from this concert were officially released on the “Crossroads 2: Live in the Seventies” box set. Please note that this audience recording is not complete, to begin with it was missing “Sheriff” and “Can’t Find My Way Home”. To appease the DIME gods and prevent confusion from anyone stupid enough to confuse an officially released soundboard track with a pretty crappy audience recording, D1T3, “Badge” has been removed from this torrent. More information about the missing track(s) can be discussed on the ClaptonBoots group (

Please note that although I have run across several different lineages of this recording, they have all been missing the same 2 tracks so at this point I think it’s a safe assumption to consider that they were not recorded, or at least the full recording is not to be found in the trading pool. I hope to be proven wrong, but in the meantime this is the best sounding recording of this historic concert that I have encountered.

online Review:

“Live At Paleur is a soundboard recording taken from Dylan’s 1984 tour of Europe. It captures a highly enjoyable performance from Dylan and his Mick Taylor-fronted band. This recording sets Dylan’s vocals way out in front but I personally enjoy that mix. The band are a little buried on some of thew songs and there are occasional echoes on the vocals but if you don’t mind these things then this is a great recording. It’d give and 8 or an 8.5 out of 10. Dylan sings most of the songs in the confident, swaggering style that characterised many of live performances in the 1980’s. While this style is certainly not my favourite of Bob’s “vocal characters”, it works to good effect on many of the songs here. One thing that cannot be disputed is that ‘Live At Palaeur’ is a much better document of this tour than the patchy official release ‘Real Live’. Ballad Of A Thin Man on ‘Real Live’ is a horrible, rushed parody of the song that appeared on ‘Highway 61 Revisited’. Here Ballad… is one of the highlights of the set. The versions of Maggies Farm, Masters Of War and Tombstone Blues on this release also put their Real Live incarnations to shame. Other highpoints include the brilliant, rewritten Tangled Up In Blue, an interesting post-Gospel rewrite of When You Gonna Wake Up? (“When you gonna wake up? maybe you never will”), a passionate I & I and a beautiful performance of Every Grain Of Sand, which was still a relatively new song at that time. It’s clear that Bob’s having fun when he lets the audience sing on the chorus of Times They Are A-Changin’ and Blowin’ In The Wind. All in all, this is a highly entertaining show and I don’t hesitate in giving it my stamp of approval (for whatever that’s worth…) “
