Bob Dylan – 1990 Horrible Tour – European Summer Festivals

Bob Dylan
1990 HORRIBLE TOUR – EUROPEAN SUMMER FESTIVALS

(Pink Panther Records)

The very short & “horrible” 1990 European summer “festival” tour

all sourced from 100% lossless FLAC from best available sound sources.

mp3@320kbps converted from FLAC using NCH Switch Pro.

FLAC version to follow.

The respected Dylanologist, John Bauldie, called this the Horrible Tour.

What is true is that most of it was played at open air festivals to audiences
where a large portion of the crowd are there to see some other act and may have little knowledge or interest in Bob.

It is also true that the songs played were heavily drawn from the better-known songs from the 1960s and 1970s.

It is not true that all these concerts were the same – of the nine concerts and 50 different songs played,
27 of those were only played once or twice.

Festivals have practical limitations – apart from indifferent audiences, performers often have to deal with poorer sound,
shorter allocated setup and playing time, promoter’s demands, drunks, drugs, rain & mud, etc, etc.

Bob was not a stranger to outdoor concerts in 1990 – this is the guy who played the Isle of Wight in 69,
& one of his all-time classic concerts at Blackbushe in 78.

For whatever reason, Bob put the emphasis on his great & best-known songs from the 1960s & 1970s.

So let’s get back to Bauldie. Yes, it is a greatest hits tour leg & it is hugely different
from the mega-successful Paris & London concert hall appearances from early in the year,
but if you are objective about the performances, they are certainly not bad or poor concerts, just different.

Just look at it this way – in the 19th century, Leo Tolstoy wrote a massive novel called War And Peace,
mainly in Russian, but also with large portions in French. It is a sort of philosophical adventure drawing on large chucks of history & poetry.
It is still regarded as one of the greatest novels written by anybody at any time, but most people have never read it because it is too long & too complicated.
In Russia today, it has been condensed into about a hundred pages for schoolkids so they can get some understanding of what it has to say.
Full-on Leo & Bob have much in common, particularly being wordy, philosophical & impenetrable to many.

That is how you need to approach the 1990 European festivals – it is Dylan 101 to get the kids interested. There is nothing wrong with that. Look at the competition at Torhout-Werchter: The Cure, Midnight Oil, Sinead O’Conner, Wendy & Liza, Ry Cooder, Lenny Kravitz, Jeff Healey Band.
Bob was reaching out to a younger, new audience, not a hall full of aging London lambchops – why not!

& remember, Bob had just completed Under The Red Sky, with its heavy emphasis on simple nursery-rhyme forms.

The standout concert here is Berlin, which is provided complete.
Therefore three songs (I Shall Be Released, It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding), & Maggie’s Farm) are duplicated.
The better versions (according to PP) are the non-Berlin tracks.

All concerts, except Torhout, are represented. Torhout is the worst concert. All songs that were played on the tour leg appear here.

We are not dealing with armies of hardcore lambchops here who know all the songs & crave the unexpected & obscure.

If you are objective about it, these are perfectly respectible performances by a very well-rehearsed band & these tapes are all in excellent sound.

Bauldie, in my opinion, was wrong. If you want the sophisticated stuff from 1990, go listen to Paris & London.

Put your gumboots on, have a couple of beers, make some noise, have some fun & listen.

Horrible it is not, & rubbish it is not either.

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

53 ball-tearing, sensational tracks
50 different songs
8 concerts are represented here (from the total of 9 concerts)
4 hours & 11 minutes of music
1 bob

The setlists were highly variable from night to night, with 13 songs being played five or more times, and
27 songs only played once or twice.

It is interesting that most of the songs were well-known 1960s and 1970s standards,
with only three songs from Oh Mercy.

Under The Red Sky had been recorded but was as yet unreleased.

The two shows at the Torhout-Werchter Festival were both shorter than the other shows

There was also a rumour that Dylan was not allowed to play more than one hour before the encores,
since the security staff had been promised to be free in time
to watch the on-going soccer world championships on TV.

Bob Dylan & The Grateful Dead – Dead Man When Will You Arise

Bob Dylan & The Grateful Dead
DEAD MAN WHEN WILL YOU ARISE
Pink Panther
1987 – THE RESURRECTION

Download MP3: Amazon Drive

It’s interesting that it took The Dead (specifically Jerry Garcia) to bring Bob back to life – one of the great Dylan puns!. This is the conception of the Never Ending Tour – Bob recommitted himself to his old songs, many of which he hadn’t played live in decades, & then, after road-testing his concept in Europe with Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers during the late 1987 Temple In Flames tour, in 1988 he took his songs on the road for what has now been a quarter of a century of continuous global touring (& still counting). He is now sort of his own disciple, selling & preaching the gospel according to Bob & his congregation is massive & totally devoted.

This is not Bob’s best music, but is much better than the vicious reviews that legions of critics have written to attack Dylan & The Dead. But I must say that Dylan & The Dead (Columbia) has little, if anything, to commend it. It is very short & Bob’s vocals are buried this has been explained as Bob demanding that his vocals not be so high in the mix, but I don’t buy that. If you listen to the audience tapes (yes they exist) that is how the concert was mixed from the soundboard – that’s how the fans heard it live.

This is one of the best recorded early periods of Bob, with clean tapes (including many soundboards) available for almost all the rehearsals & the following six US concerts.

There are much better choices available than the tracks eventually chosen & authorised by Bob & his boombox.

The San Rafael rehearsals have been carefully compiled by Alan Fraser & available on The Complete Rehearsals (So Far) (dylantree). This includes a fascinating interview between David Gans & Gary Lamber sourced from The Grateful Dead Hour #705, broadcast week of 25 Mar 2002, specifically about the Dead’s Postcards Of The Hanging (Arista) of Dylan songs, with one (Man Of Peace) including Bob from the 1987 rehearsals. Previously unaired songs from the rehearsals were also played on the radio show (but are not on Postcards).

There is also The Unreleased Live Album (Moonlight) which is reportedly (maybe) an alternative album put forward by The Grateful Dead which was rejected in favour of Bob’s choices – Dylan & The Dead (Columbia). This alternative album has been put together by someone with access to pristine (& mixable) master tapes & it also includes (unexplained) an outtake (different mix anyway) of Silvio from Down In The Groove.

Silvio is shrouded in mystery, but it is clearly a collaboration between Dylan & The Dead.
The official album credits Garcia, Mydland & Weir with “vocals”. There are three Down In The Groove Silvios in circulation – the eventual Columbia track, the early pro o/demo album & the Moonlight versions, all have female backup vocals from Carolyn Dennis & Madelyn Quebec with a few woop-woops from (presumably, maybe) Garcia-Mydland-Weir.

My guess is that the three guys played on the track but there were legal problems crediting it.
What is more fascinating are the lyrics – said to be from Dead lyricist Robert Hunter’s notebook set to music by Bob, but the lyrics are a bit too “Bob” & in retrospect spookily biographical (see below). Bob’s Resurrection Shuffle?? You work it out.

Silvio (#1, #2 or #3) is not included on this compilation as that will simply freak out Columbia & Websheriff, as would the Dylan & The Dead tracks. Silvio (surprisingly) was also never rehearsed (that we know of) or played at the 1987 concerts.

& then there is Dead Man, Dead Man from 1981, which was played in the 1987 Dead concerts,
which now takes on autobiographical tones similar to Silvio. But that’s Dylan for you!

So since it is the season of resurrecting Bob’s worst albums in a new & better light (Another Self Portrait), let’s have a competition to pick tracks for Another Dylan & The Dead album!
Only rules are that they must come from 1987 & feature both Bob & members of The Grateful Dead;
& it must fit on one CD.

The following tracks may help you, but don’t limit yourself to these.

First prize is a bottle of cheap, nasty, horrible Russian vokka personally autographed by Vladimir,
Second prize is a crate of the stuff.

Sources: best available mp3, most converted directly from FLAC to mp3@320kbps.

Sound: generally excellent, sometimes very good, never poor.

Rating stars: lots of ’em.

On the east coast leg of the tour, both Dylan and The Grateful Dead are conspicuously unsteady,
but The Grateful Dead pulled together at the beginning of the west coast swing, and Dylan tried harder for a night.
Philadelphia probably has the most interesting setlist, although it was the shortest show.

Paul Williams

The only live Dylan / Dead performance of Tomorrow Is A Long Time, at the third show of the tour
(Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey), is as bad as the performance on the rehearsal tape.
The vocal is again listless (it starts, “If (mumble) not a crooked highway / If tonight was not a crooked trail.”) and the music shapeless, structureless, clumsy and plodding. Presumably, this is what happens when singer and band are both intimidated by the other, and neither is able to provide any kind of leadership, either at rehearsals or on stage.

Neil Young – Rebel Content Tour, 2015

Neil Young
Rebel Content Compilation, 2015

Download FLAC: Amazon Drive

Here is a great compilation I recently received from Rust list members. Compiled by Ron Yaxley(REYaxley).

All files in FLAC format.
Text below from Rons original e-mail.
In the recent Rolling Stone article about Neil and Promise of The Real finishing off their second album for release in June, Neil is quoted as saying “It’s like a live show, but it’s not like a live show….. It’s not conventional … but it is based on live performance.”

While we eagerly wait for that new album, there is still nothing like a Neil Young live show. The vast majority of the Rebel Content shows in the USA and Canada in 2015 were captured by tapers and uploaded to Dime so it was perhaps inevitable that a live comp would probably appear before too long.

The origins of this comp lie with Tom Zumafan and Soldier Steve who between them put together a 6-CD compilation of their favorite tracks from the Rebel Content tour. It wasn’t widely circulated or publicized but it existed. During the last few weeks, I have had the pleasure of working with Tom and Steve to ‘remaster’ the original with the objective of turning it into six continuous live albums. Tracks have been edited and merged as best I could from the individual files to make it sound like one long concert. Some of the original cuts were changed for different versions that lent themselves better to track-to-track transition, and the original order of the tracks was also changed in places to make them fit together better. Every song played on the tour is covered here bar one, Rockin’ In The Free World….it was played twice but no decent recordings have surfaced unfortunately. To quote a Neil song from 1985, nothing is perfect and what has been created is only as good as all of the source material.
It was challenging editing different shows together but we think it worked and it sounds pretty damn good!
It was great fun working on this, so my grateful thanks to Tom and Steve for their generosity, their patience while all of this was being put together, and their unqualified approval of the end result.

So, 62 songs, over 6 hours of Neil + POTR live. Enjoy!

Ron

Compiled by Nightingale’s Code

The 2002 Winter Tour often gets overshadowed by the 2001 Fall Tour right before it
and the 2002 Fall Tour that would come later that year, but with a closer look I
found it to be a very solid tour leg consisting of 18 dates throughout the
south-eastern United States, leading up to the 2002 Grammy Awards on February 27
(3 days after the leg ended). It should be noted that the best sounding tape from
the tour is from February 9 (Atlanta), and thus I did not include any tracks from
it as the entire show stands on its own. This is merely a companion piece to that
show, and to the wonderful Lonesome Day Blues released on BS8.

Because Love and Theft was released less than 5 months before the start of this
tour, all of the tracks from that album are very similar to their released studio
version. Although the arrangements aren’t new, you can tell Bob is really feeling
these tracks as in most cases, the LAT songs were the highlights of each show.
Cry A While, Lonesome Day Blues (feel free to substitute the released Sunrise
version in for this Jacksonville one), Summer Days, and Honest With Me are great
showcases for the band as they really rock out. High Water, Mississippi, and
Floater are equally good too, and I find Sugar Baby to be even better than the
studio version. The phrasing seems better on this Dallas take than the LAT version.

Besides the LAT tracks, the most consistent parts of every show were the acoustic
set that opened, and the shorter acoustic set mid-way through the show. One Too
Many Mornings, Boots Of Spanish Leather, and Girl From The North Country are all
very beautiful, reminiscent of those great 2000 European vocals. On the other hand,
Tangled Up In Blue and Desolation Row show how great Bob and the band can rock
out on the acoustic numbers.

Gotta Serve Somebody makes for a fun opener, and Bob really lets loose, Love Sick
really capitalizes on the moody groove that it’s capable of in this arrangement,
and Just Like A Woman from Orlando is one of the best versions in the NET that I’ve
heard. Bob really digs into it in the second verse and decides to stay there.

I added the LB numbers next to the dates so that if you like the sound quality
or a song from a particular show, I urge you to seek out the full recording. Nearly
every date on this tour was a consistently good show, especially the first
handful of dates in Florida.

I’d like to dedicate this to our friend Hollowhorn, who generously uploaded all
18 of these shows and made it capable for me and everyone else to listen to them.

Avid fans who were around in the 1990’s probably remember the Total Eclipse boxed set, a 4CD set of rare and unreleased recordings. (Heck, some of you were probably involved in making it.) It was released basically as a reaction to the Shine On boxed set which added virtually no value to most fans. However, over 15 years later a lot has changed. Many of the recordings in the original set have been released officially and new sources have emerged across the board. However, it is clear that there is a large amount of material out there that complements the albums but will probably never be released by the band. Therefore I think it is time for a new fan set that captures the intent of the original Total Eclipse boxed set and improves on it. This set would not be possible without the effort of the innumerable people over the years who have recorded and preserved this music.

Like many fans, I am enthusiastic about the announcement of the series of boxed sets that will include significant amounts of previously unavailable material. In an attempt to avoid overlap with future releases, I have avoided sources that I consider too good NOT to release by themselves. These include:

  • BBC sessions from 1968-1974
  • September 09, 1969 (Concertgebouw)
  • November 21, 1970 (Montreaux)
  • March 14, 1973 (Boston)

    In addition, I have decided not to include anything after 1979 because these are already captured very well by existing releases.

I am optimistic that future releases will continue to make the highest quality recordings available officially. However, as exciting as these upcoming releases are, I do not feel that they will tell the whole story. While compiling this set, the original intention was to stick with 4CDs as with the original. However, after reviewing dozens of sources, I felt that this was not enough space to tell the entire story in a satisfactory way and so I have expanded to 6 CDs. Each is designed to tell a different part of the story as follows:

CD 1 – Dawn and Dusk of the Piper (Pink Floyd with Syd Barrett from 1965 to 1967)
CD 2 – A Collection of Great Soundboards (soundboard recordings from 1968 to 1978)
CD 3 – Ummagumma Revisited (an alternate set of soundboard recordings from 1968 to 1971)
CD 4 – Something To Do With A Dream (audience recordings from 1970 to 1971)
CD 5 – Childhood’s End (audience recordings from 1971 to 1972)
CD 6 – I Fell On His Neck With A Scream (audience recordings from 1973 to 1977)

Beta Notes:

Because of the scope of this project I want to take the time to get this right. Someone else is going to have to take on the artwork and final mastering. In addition, getting detailed liner notes together will take some effort. Therefore I am releasing this torrent as a “Beta” version of Disc 1. Other discs will be torrented over the next couple of weeks as time permits. Once feedback starts rolling in, we can talk about what needs to be done to get this project to the finish line.

Additional notes will be posted on Y! as a work-in-progress.
