From the original uploader
From an old cassette (received in trade, 1993 — no lineage info, but some light hiss). I’m PRETTY sure this is not the LB recording (LB-2249 / LB-4167). The only thing I could find to compare was one track (Two Soldiers) on a compilation; I think there were enough crowd discrepancies there to conclude this is different. (It certainly sounds better to me, anyway.)

Bob finished recording what would become Oh Mercy early in 1989 and then played 72 concerts before finally releasing the album on 18 September.
These 72 prior concerts are amazing in terms of high & consistent performance standard which revisited a very large number of his songs & the songs of others.

He had finally achieved what Jerry Garcia had told him he must do – reconnect with the songs from is vast catalogue & play them with conviction.
Bob started this process immediately after his strange 1987 concerts with The Grateful Dead. In late 1987, he toured Europe with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.

Bob played with The Heartbreakers in 86, but the 87 tour was completely different with Bob agreeing to play band requests for his past songs.
1988 brought the unexpected success of The Traveling Wilburys which gave his failing career a much needed boost & exposure to a new audience.
He also came up with a new business model – a small, stripped down road band doing large numbers of “never ending” concerts
& playing ever-changing setlists of his own songs & other people’s songs that he liked.

Back to Oh Mercy, an album almost as famous for the songs left off it (God Knows, Series Of Dreams, Dignity, Born In Time) as it was for those on it.

Bob had a long time to think about what he wanted to include on Oh Mercy, & I suspect he considered not releasing it at all.
Bob had to make a decision – continue as a “wilbury” (Roy Orbison’s death on 6 December 1988 made that unlikely), stick with the old songs,
or push forward into the future with new songs that he believed in. So Bob pushed the reset button – all the way back to 1981 & Shot Of Love,
the last Christian album which Bob had worked hard & long on & was very proud of but which sold very poorly. This was a very high risk career move & Bob knew it.

The released Oh Mercy (like Infidels) has heavily disguised, but it had a far more potent religious message than any previous album.
What Bob does with Oh Mercy is to actually answer some questions raised by some of his old songs – he tells you what he really believes, & more importantly, why.

Everything Is Broken is Trouble Part 2, Man In The Long Black Coat is Blowin’ In The Wind Part 2, Ring Them Bells is Chimes Of Freedom Part 2.

The “message” of Oh Mercy goes something like this:

– people are incapable of managing or understanding the world without religious guidance.
– people revert to the dark side without such guidance – every man’s conscience is vile and depraved.
– the world is a harsh and dangerous place and always will be – trouble and damage are everywhere.
– temptation & sexual love is the only “escape” in this world but it takes you to the dark side and does not last.
– life on earth is simply a test of character for the life beyond.
– life & death are the same thing if you pass the test – people don’t live or die, people just float.
– the force of God is everywhere – blowin’ in the wind, hurricane breeze.
– not everyone will pass the test for the life beyond – ring them bells for the chosen few.

Now you can accept that or reject it, but Bob had decided to return to religious songs – a high risk move based on past experience,
but after 72 concerts to think about it, Oh Mercy hit the streets on 18 September 1989, & a new tour leg started in New York on 10 October.

The NY concerts are bizarre – there is a new Bob on stage with something new & powerful to say.
Andrew Muir refers to the “demonic rage” of the four show NY residency which kicked off the tour.

This is scary stuff, & there is overt & covert religion everywhere.
Five new songs (Everything Is Broken, Disease Of Conceit, Most Of The Time, What Good Am I?, Man In The Long Black Coat)
are played most nights along with Like A Rolling Stone, All Along The Watchtower, I Shall Be Released & A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.
The setlists are far more consistent for core songs that the concerts earlier in the year.
Shot Of Love is back – Shot Of Love, Dead Man, Dead Man, Trouble, Lenny Bruce.
There are mainstream hymns – Precious Memories & Rank Strangers To Me. There are Bob hymns – In The Garden, I Believe In You, Man Of Peace.

The most startling & serious performances are reserved for Bob on piano (the first piano Bob of the NET).
Check out Disease Of Conceit (Ithaca), Ring Them Bells (Poughkeepsie), Gotta Serve Somebody (Troy)
& the unbelievable rewrite of When You Gonna Wake Up? (Poughkeepsie) – the song has been drastically shortened
with only the first verse remaining from the original song. You cannot even make out the words – just fragments
(-left me in peace-another hungry mouth to feed-where he belongs-ain’t that strong-schools-every time-),
but it is so profound & played with such conviction that it stops you in your tracks.
He achieved something like it with I’m Not There (1956) from the Basement Tapes.

Poughkeepsie is the best concert & is available in excellent sound. It is one of Bob’s best concerts ever.

Just to ram it all home, immediately after the tour Bob retreats to a recording studio in Bloomington with Barry Goldberg
to record People Get Ready. You have got to wonder what else he recorded that day.

& you know what – Oh Mercy became the successful comeback album – praised by critics & fans alike.

The religion was ignored by almost everybody – as The Traveling Wilburys said, The Devil’s Been Busy. He got away with it!

You have to ask yourself how all those beds got broken – one of the great Bob mysteries.

You have gotta hear this stuff.

From the original uploader:
Here’s a very nice sounding, mostly complete audience show from Osaka 1975. It’s sourced from an LP, but I do not know the name or info of the boot. Sample included of As the Years Go Passing By – EC has only played this tune a few times, one would think.

And a note about the EC series I’ve been enjoying bringing to you: I have one more to put up in this part of the series, then I will be jumping to my favorite EC tour – I have several nice sounding blues shows (’94 – ’95) that I haven’t seen up on the tracker so stay tuned …
