Thanks to Nellie at Expecting Rain.

I was going to call this 20th Century Blues, but marianne faithful beat me to it.One of the most productive four weeks in NET history – in terms of both quality & quantity – & most of it in great sound.Bob finished the 20th century with a short, sharp tour where he looked both forward & back – a sort of parallel to elvis’s ’68 comeback special, pieced together from two sitdown & another two standing sets.Bob had a month-long party with 22 concerts – all of which are represented here.

If you don’t like this, you don’t like bob – astonishing music with lots of pleasant surprises.

PS – the jokes have not improved.

From the original uploader:
Quality ranges from SBD to just fair.
The Wednesday Morning session appears from an AM Source on a number
of other releases (Far East Reunion, Village Vanguard) but this is
the only version which blends that with various FM rebroadcasts.
So you won’t find this better quality elsewhere.

The Manchester show is the worst-sounding here – my guess is that
it was recorded by putting a microphone up to an AM radio speaker(!).

Anyway, S&G bootlegs being the rare, eclectic beasts they are, this
CD tidys up a number of disparate recordings into one coherent package.

Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan – Bass Player’s Wearing a Tie, 1978

bob Dylan - 1978-12-10 Charlotte

Bob Dylan
Pink Panther Records

Download: FLAC/MP3

The final piece of Pink Panther’s five part 1978 world tour, which consisted of 114 concerts (not the 115 often quoted by writers).
This has only been bettered by the 120 concerts in 1999 & 116 in 1995.
The year would take Bob to 10 countries – USA, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden & Canada.

This final North American leg seems like it is light years away from the Japanese “greatest hits” shows.
It was not a happy time for Bob (as had been the American concerts in September & October), but Bob did make some radical decisions on how he would move forward & out of his situation.

The journalists were unrelenting in their criticism, Street Legal did not sell well, Renaldo & Clara was a commercial disaster,
the single Baby Stop Crying flopped & was all but dropped from the setlist.

I have no idea what was going on in his head, but the rants about geeks, gypsy kings, & an old man on a train in Mexico with glowing eyes (God?, devil?) give some insight.

Whether the stories about crosses thrown on stage or hotel room visits from God are reliable is debatable, but he did play Slow Train at soundchecks & Do Right To Me Baby (Do Unto Others) on the final tour night in Hollywood, Florida.

However, when you listen objectively to the best examples of the circulating tapes, you get some wonderful music.
The setlist is fairly static but the night by night variation is amazing.
Despite everything, the standard of performance is very high – he does not give up.
Improvisation is the order of the day & the band & backup singers give their all.
It is far looser than September & October – to the point of being feral & unpredictable.

The music soars all the way to heaven – literally.

Sound quality is mostly excellent, but there are some lo-fi tracks of the rarely played songs
(Baby Stop Crying was only played twice before being abandoned in mid-November).

A note on sound quality – Jokerman usually does a great job with sound ratings, but not here.
imo, Vancouver & LA are under-rated, Charlotte is over-rated, & Madison is incredible (although I concede that there are cuts & dropouts on some songs – most of which do not appear here).
I have never liked (& still don’t like) Charlotte – I know everyone raves about it but all the versions I have heard are harsh, processed & clipped.
There are 11 Charlotte tracks here – the performances are great, but imo there are better examples of most of the songs.

Generally, there are two examples of each song (one each from November & December) but not always.

The title comes from bootlegger comments at 11-15 LA just before Shelter From The Storm (but I had to clean it up a bit).

Statistics for this compilation (yes, lies, damn lies & statistics masquerading as facts)

75 ball-tearing, sensational tracks

Mickey and Jerry make a public apology for having to cancel the December 18, 1970 show that was to take place in Port Chester.

This however is no ordinary “I’m sorry” statement 🙂

Comments from

There were three shows booked & advertised for the Capitol Theater on December 18, 19 & 20 but they were cancelled and rescheduled for February 71. There is tape in circulation of a radio ad announcing and apologizing for the cancellation (“The Port Chester Apology”).

Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan – Whatever You F-Ing Feel Like – Fall Tour of the USA 1991

bob Dylan - 1991-11-01 Kansas City

Bob Dylan
Pink Panther Records
1991 Fall Tour of the United States of America.

Download: FLAC/MP3

The popular theory is that all 91 concerts are rubbish & the popular theory is wrong.
There is also a view that there are a few decent concerts buried in the mess of the 91 US Fall tour.
So what is really happening here if we are objective about it & stick to the facts from the circulating tapes.
Over four weeks (28 days), Bob performed 21 concerts & played 65 songs (25 of them only once or twice).
The songs are very well performed & two-thirds of the concerts are circulating in very good to excellent sound.
The Donald Duck on helium vocals from earlier in the year are absent.
Bob & the band play enthusiastically, coherently & consistently.
Like most Bob things from 91, someone has a wacky theory –
the most weird one about the vocals is that it took Bob’s sinuses almost a year to recover from all the Traveling Wilburys coke.
I have no idea, but the improvement in the vocals is dramatic.
The constant experimentation with the songlist shows Bob focused on what he is doing, & doing it well.
These are very good to excellent performances in very good to excellent sound.
There is no typical Fall 91 concert setlist – it changed considerably every night.
Every song played during Fall 91 is represented here.
