You know in the 50 there was, I don’t know if anybody here remembers, the carnivals
used to have in the 50ís, every carnival used to have a geek.
Do you know what a geek is? A geek is a man that eats a live chicken, right
before your eyes. He bites the head off, eats that.
Then he goes ahead, eats the heart, drinks up the blood, sweeps up all the feathers
with a broom. In them days it cost a quarter to see him. I guess now it might cost
about 15 bucks, if there is one. Anyway. The geek pretty much kept to himself most
of the time. Nobody, I never did get too tight with the geek, but one day I was
having breakfast with the bearded lady and she says, “Stay away from that man.”
I say, “Why?” She says, “Because he looks at everybody else in the world as freaky,
except him. He thinks that he’s just earning a living, and what heís doing is pretty
straight.” I said, “Oh,wow” Anyway, years later that came back to me. I was walking
down the streets of Nashville one day, I think it was about 1964, with my organ
player Al Kooper. Both of us had long hair, and in them days in Nashville nobody
had long hair. Not Willie Nelson, nobody. So we were walking down the street and
buses were stopping. People just stopped in their tracks when they see us walking
down the street. And somewheres along the line all these things I put them together
in this particular tune. (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)
Thank you. I was invited to the Newport Folk Festival way back when. I had been
invited there previously and it didnít cause too much trouble. But this one
particular year I was there playing this song and they kicked me out of town.
Sent me away on a train. Anyway, itís hard to believe a song could cause that
much disturbance, but it did. (before Maggieís Farm)
Thank you. (-..). Is that your (-..)? Is that (-..) down there? How long have you been together? Well, I got three girls, women, in this band. They wanna sing a song that I wrote. They cornered me last night and they say, -Bobby, you canít sing this song no more-. So they gonna sing it for you right now. (before Rainy Day Women #12 & 35)
Thank you. A few years ago I went over the South of France when the gypsies have their festival. It happens to be their high holy holiday, like Christmas time. Anyway, that particular day happens to be the day I was born on. It’s my birthday also. I’d heard about that for years and I went over to check it out. Just like that, I did. So I arrived, over a town on the ocean, in the south of France. And all the gypsies were there. They were there from Hungary, Romania, France, England, Germany, all them countries. Just all along the beach. What they do for their holiday is just party for a week. So, I managed to meet the king of the gypsies over there. I don’t know how old he was, he was wearing a derby hat when I met him. He had 16 wives and 125 children. And I was very impressed of that. Anyway, I stayed around and partied for a week, I didnít sleep, did everything there was to do at least twice. And when it was time to leave he said, “What you want, Bob, now when our way are gonna part?” All I needed was just to stay up one more day, just to get back to the North of France, so I asked for just please give me one more cup of coffee for the road. So they give it to me in a bag, I took it and headed off down.
Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, on the drums tonight, from Kingston, Jamaica, give
him a warm welcome. Ian Wallace. He’s a good drummer. Irreplaceable drummer.
Anyway, on the bass guitar, Jerry Scheff. On the keyboards, from the Bahamas,
Alan Pasqua. On the lead guitar, the oldest member of this group, born in 1921,
Mr. Billy Cross. All right. On the violin and the mandolin, sometimes the electric
guitar, the youngest member of this group, only fifteen years old, been with me now
for five years. Doesn’t smoke dope, chase women, doesn’t drink whiskey. I keep
trying to change him, but it can’t be done. Anyway, I’m grooming him for the
Bruce Springsteen band while he’s here. David Mansfield. All right, on the rhythm
guitar from Bogota, Colombia. A young man who doesn’t speak any English, but he
plays his heart out on that guitar. A man who gave up a promising career as a
sports car driver to join this band. Ladies and gentlemen, I wanna introduce you
to Mr. Steven Soles. On the tenor saxophone, a man who you’ve heard many times before,
probably don’t even know it. The phenomenal Steve Douglas. On the backup vocals,
three young ladies I can’t do without anymore. I know I don’t have the greatest
voice in the world but they do make it sound somewhat better and they do cover it
up sometimes. Anyway, way over on the one side, my ex-girlfriend, Helena Springs.
Way down in the middle, my current girlfriend, Jo Ann Harris.
And on the other side, the true love of my life, my current fiancÈe, Carolyn Dennis.
On the conga drums from Detroit City, also has played on many other records.
The amazing Miss Bobbye Hall. I hope we played something right for you tonight.
Weíll get out of here real soon. (before Itís Alright, Ma (Iím Only Bleeding)
So, this is a song I wrote for one of my babies when he was a baby.
He isnít a baby anymore, heís not here, but I wanna play it anyway. (before Forever Young)

I didn’t compare my tape to any others and from the descriptions, it’s probably much better than the others.
bittorrent download 07/09;
not much above 10k except light noise as looks like noise reduction used;
in comparison to LB-7054, that has a little hiss and is harsher and and fuller sound and this sounds muffled and unnatural; (did not listen to all of this)
