This is a beautiful, controlled tour leg with much to offer.
The band is very tight, having just completed an extraordinary tour of Australia and New Zealand.
Although Bob continues to experiment with new or traditional songs, the emphasis here is on his own back catalogue.
Bob plays an enormous amount of harmonica, and he seems genuinely interested in good performances.
Portable DAT recorders are starting to appear, with quantum improvements in sound quality,
but digitial is still an occasional windfall – so we keep jumping from black & white to colour & back again.
It is very difficult to dislike anything here – there are no lows
but there are also few highs where you stop everything you are doing and just listen.
BUT the few highs (& I am not going to name them for you) are more than extraordinary.
& then there is Mr Tambourine Man – you cannot even catagorise that happens here.
Great sound (for the most part), focused Bob, well-rehearsed band – lap it up!.

All 55 songs played on the tour leg are here. There is debate about whether Disease of Conceit was played
on 19 May in Los Angeles. The “track” on the single circulating tape of this concert has a Grateful Dead track
which is not Disease Of Conceit so I am assuming (like Jokerman) that it was not played.

The downside is Bob’s vocals – which are all over the place from extreme nasal to truly beautiful.
The Hawaiian concerts are horrible nasal (except for a few songs which make you weep with joy – you work it out, I can’t).
& what happens when you take the tune from an old folk ballad (Golden Vanity),
mess with the words & electrify it to scare even Hendrix – Under The Red Sky, of course!

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

55 ball-tearing, sensational tracks
55 different songs
16 concerts are represented here (from the total of 21 concerts)
5 hours & 7 minutes of music

The setlists alternated radically from night to night.

Grateful Dead – New Years Eve Shows

grateful dead - new years eve 1989

The Grateful Dead played on New Years Eve 22 times over their 30 year career. They were often enormous, behemoth affairs with multiple acts, guest players and three or four massive sets from the Dead themselves.  The music was often pretty rough no doubt because they were playing for hours on end into the wee hours of the morning, but I’ve always thought these shows were kind of special.

Bill Graham hosted pretty much all of the New Years shows and he always made a big spectacle of it, counting down the new year with massive balloons pouring down from the ceiling and often riding out dressed in crazy costumes.  He died in 1991 and the Dead played their last New Year’s Eve show that year.

I had planned to post the all as a run up to the run up to this past New Years Eve, but I got sick and so I’m a little late with it.  Obviously I’ve been posting the individual shows the last couple of weeks but much like the acoustic runs in 1980 I wanted to do a master post now that everything is up.

As always thanks to Nellie at Expecting Rain for this compilation.

Nellie always includes an enormous amounts of excellent notes with these compilations. I usually trim them down considerably so that my posts aren’t enormous. I did the same here, but do to the nature of the Rolling Thunder Review with its wide variety of people on stage the notes are still a little unwieldy. I hope they still make sense. But if not you still wanna get this comp. – Mat

RTR Part 2 is very different to RTR Part 1. The music is tougher, heavier, edgier. At times it borders on hard rock.
There is way more to RTR 2 than the official Columbia Hard Rain live album.

There is a great breadth & depth of material here.
Bob was dealing with all sorts of personal demons at the time but it seems to just fuel the fire.
Not for the faint-hearted – it is a very bumpy ride but well worth it.

Soundboard Collection

Download: FLAC/MP3

This compilation is inspired by the song 4 strong winds (I’ve been trough that a hundred times or more) and the compilation at the other side of the spectrum; 5 times or less. I Figured that a compilation like this might be interesting, since all the songs have been played so many times that there’s a SBD avaliable. Also, there are bound to be some interesting versions around due to the many style changes. It sometimes is surprising what songs DO show up and what songs DON’T. And how very few songs (certainly compared to the 5 times or less compilation) he played more than a 100 times. I compiled this set using the great “Numbers on the Site” by Mattias Butterweck: http://www.butterweck.de/nytourix/ it didn’t take me too long to get it all lined up, and just half a day or so to find all the songs and make em ready for the compilation. Th editing in cool edit pro (adding fades and amplifying some stuff) and converting the files took me about a half day maore. I used my own extensive collection: http://db.etree.org/harm85 which I collected via DC++ and countless torrent sites as well as buying some stuff too. The songs are listed below in order of how many times he played em. I was wonderin’ in what order I’d put em, and finally came to the solution of putting them in reverse order, sort of like a Billboard Hot 100 idea. I also included all info on venues and checked all the oficially released live stuff and used material as late as possible, to avoid stuff appearing in the archives soon and making this collection partly ‘illegal’. Anyway, here it is, enjoy the countdown.

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.

Download: FLAC/MP3

Thanks as always to Nellie at Expecting Rain for this compilation. As per usual she has included an enormous amount of information in the text files which I have not included here (but do remain in the download) in order to save space.

Tour ’74 is a much misunderstood part of Dylan’s live performance canon.
The early concerts are quite different to the later ones which formed Before The Flood.

There have been various great compilations of Tour ’74 in the past,
most notably the silver boot Phantoms Of My Youth (Capricorn) and
Bob Meyer’s amazing Nineteen74 from 1981, a “best of” from his exhaustive, and at the time definitive, “1974 Project”.

However, since then, many pristine complete soundboards (& bits of soundboards) have emerged,
along with great audience tapes from Chicago and Hollywood. This new compilation reflects this.

One of the great surprises is the performance & sound quality of The Band songs, which are also included here.

Sound quality here is generally very good to excellent, but some tracks only exist in fair to poor sound.
Unfortunately, the first three tracks from Chicago are in poor sound –
if you don’t like these completist tracks, use the “skip” button.

Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan – You Don’t Know Me – Summer Tour of Europe, 1989

Bob Dylan
1989 YOU DON’T KNOW ME
Pink Panter Records
1989 Summer Tour of Europe

As always thanks to Nellie at Expecting Rain for the compilation.

Download: FLAC/MP3

The 1989 European summer tour is a major highlight of the NET in terms of performance & setlists,
& thanks to Legendary Taper D (LTD) with an equipment combination of the best Sennheiser microphones of the time
feeding the legendary Sony Walkman WM-6 Professional portable recorder & the best available Maxwell tapes,
along with attendance at almost all the concerts, we have at out disposal a collection of truly wonderful tapes.
Everything is recorded in analogue – DAT recorders were very rare & expensive at the time.

The LTD tapes dominate, but there are exceptions:
the New York rehearsal is a soundboard, but a generation copy;
LTB did a better job at The Hague, which is the best-sounding tape here;
Istanbul only appears as an incomplete amateur tape in poor sound, which is a pity because it was a great performance; &
BBC2 TV recorded the Athens TV documentary with Van Morrison in excellent sound.

These recordings cover a vast collection of Bob’s pre-Oh Mercy songs –
that album was recorded immediately before this tour but was not released until late-1989 & done of its songs appear here.

It also marks the beginning of the Tony Garnier era.

Provided with a twin narrative from the late Paul Williams & the very present Andrew Muir (aka homertheslut),
we visit the very murky world of the late-1980s European bobcats, including the king of them all – the now departed Lambchop.

You can’t go wrong with this.

Many thanks to those who made this possible, particularly 10haaf, chambre, lilraven, homertheslut &
the departed hardcore bobcats, Paul Williams & Lambchop.

& lets not forget guest appearances from Van Morrison, Bono, Ringo Starr &
an (almost) Traveling Wilburys reunion with George Harrison & Jeff Lynne who were present at Birmingham where Bob played Congratulations.
