Bob Dylan in Germany, 2011

bob dylan germany 2011

I’ve been working diligently on organizing all my files and getting my list up to date. I’m currently in the middle of a bunch of Bob Dylan shows. This batch is already labeled so that they sort chronologically so all I have to do is input them onto my list and then move them to the correct folder. So, I feel like I’m following Bob around on tour. One of the really fascinating things to me about Bob on tour, at least in the last decade or so, is that because he is touring all the time he no longer feels the need to just hit the big cities that everybody else plays at. He seemingly likes to play in more obscure corners of the world. I really feel like he’s trying to perform in every city on the planet.

In 2011 he did a big tour of Europe and on that tour, he played five shows in Germany. Now Germany is a big country, but I doubt any other artist plays five different German cities on their tours of Europe. Naturally, he plays in Berlin and Munich, but he also did stops in Oberhausen and Leipzig. No offense to those fine cities, and while they aren’t exactly obscure or tiny villages, neither are they the sorts of places big-named American rock and roll acts usually gig at.

Or maybe they do. What the heck do I know about concerts in Germany? I just think it’s cool that Bob’s list of cities he’s played a show at is enormous.

All of this is really just to say that I wanted to play around with my Google Drive a little more and I wanted to think about how my blog might look like in the future. I’ve talked a little about not wanting to do individual show posts anymore but maybe trying bigger posts with multiple shows in them.

So here is me posting six shows from Bob Dylan in Germany in 2011.

2011-10-23 – Oberhausen, Germany
2011-10-25 – Mannheim, Germany
2011-10-26 – Munich, Germany
2011-10-27 – Leipzig, Germany
2011-10-29 – Berlin, Germany
2011-10-31 – Hamburg, Germany

I haven’t listened to any of these shows so I can’t comment on the quality of the recording or the performance. I know 2011 isn’t exactly a year that Dylan nerds are constantly praising so it is a bit obscure that I’m randomly posting this. I was really just doing my sorting and thought it was cool that he did six gigs in Germany.

Please do let me know if you have any trouble with the links. But I’m also interested in what you think about doing posts like this. I like the idea of maybe doing posts like this once every couple of weeks or so. My plan would be to do something slightly larger, maybe include the entire European tour or something like that. But the basic format would be the same. I’d like to be able to say something interesting about the batch that I post and then would include links that would look something like what I’m posting here.

Does that make sense? Does that sound good?

This batch pretty much fills up my Google Drive for the moment, so I won’t be able to post anything more until I upgrade. I do have some Paypal money from the last begging session so I will be able to upgrade without begging again. But as I’ve noted in previous posts I really do want to get all my sorting done before I post regularly.

This concert was scheduled at the end of Davis’s European sojourn. It was broadcast on SDR-TV’s Treffpunkt Jazz. There is a lot of overlap among the fragments of “Walkin'” listed above. None is close to complete, and even when pieced together we have just an opening chorus and some of Davis’s solo.
Listed in the SWR Stuttgart archives are the following titles:
Probe (rehearsal) (Davis, Jankowski + Erwin Lehn Orchestra) (5:55)
Tune Up (Davis + Jankowski Trio) (3:35)
But Not for Me (Davis + Jankowski Trio) (3:00)
Yesterdays (Davis + Jankowski Trio) (2:30)
Bags’ Groove (Davis + Jankowski Trio) (3:15)
‘Round Midnight (Davis + Orchestra) (4:41)
Walkin’ (Davis + Orchestra) (2:53)
My Funny Valentine (Davis + Orchestra) (2:45)
Several of these titles are lost. Additional titles were performed by the S¸dfunk-Tanzorchester conducted by Erwin Lehn, and the Johannes Rediske Quintet with Ingrid Werner (voc).
Davis returned to the U.S. in late December, and a sextet with Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Garland, Chambers, and Jones began a two-week engagement at Birdland (January 2-15, 1958).
Thanks to Alexander Keth for the details of what’s in the Stuttgart archive.

This was my last concert I would see on this European Crazy Horse tour. After Ulm and Vienna I only had two wishes left:
Down by the River and Powderfinger. Lucky me. DBTR as the opener had quite an impact on me – I dropped my iPhone and
you can hear it hit bottom at 00:34 minutes of DBTR (and you hear me bending down to pick it up).

LDB Special Series #360 (RLR collection)

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the
musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I’d like to propose you. Most of these come from my
cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won’t be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my
reward for all the work involved in this project.

DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3’s is the right way to make me stop sharing
music here.

I think I have something really special to share with all Dimers, but first a bit of background. RLR has been a very active
trader back in the early 80´s with very wide musical tastes: he could go from Kiss to Joni Mitchell; from Genesis to Deep
Purple, Queen, Simple Minds, The Who, Springsteen and many more. In the past I could access his enormous collection to get
many U2 tapes some of which I have been sharing with you folks.

RLR had all sorts of tapes in his collection, traded not long after the show happened so most of them are low generation, in
particular tons of shows recorded in Italy which to me are some of the most interesting. Some of them, I had never seen
circulating in the trading circuit. Unfortunately he did not care about generation so this info, except for the shows he
has as masters, is not available.

RLR has kindly given me access once again to his collection. It was like a “kid in a toy shop” situation: it was hard to
select tapes and at the end I came home with some 250 tapes to listen and eventually to transfer in the digital domain. Some
of them will be shared here, possibly the most interesting ones.

I am ok with blogs and sites to re-post my seeds – provided they are in lossless form – however I ask you to keep intact the
infos of the concert including that this is part of LDB series.

And I am referring to (and not only):

Last but not the least, a very important message: I will not be uploading anymore @ Dimeadozen. TTD will be my new home
from now. If you want to download my shows please subscribe here and not re-upload @ Dime. Stay tuned because I have more and
more shows coming up!

Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano, tambourine, acoustic guitar)
Brian May (electric guitar, backing vocals, acoustic guitar, piano)

Another one from the Queen vaults, this time from the 1980. This sounds good although the sound is not as crisp as I would
have liked. This comes from a 2nd generation copy from RLR collection. RLR had a special connection to Germany, so he was
trading with quite a few german traders back then. Good one with some interesting Flash Gordon tracks.

Hope you will enjoy it!
