Another installment of Dylan arcana — or maybe this one is apocrypha. Two takes of “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere,” with McGuinn the dominant vocalist, and somebody with a vaguely Dylanesque vocal style seemingly audible from time to time, not so prominently. Might be Dylan. Could be Petty. Could be somebody in the band goofing around; members of Dylan’s NET bands have been said to do their own faux-Bob vocals at soundchecks. This is a fully realized arrangement, not just a let’s-try-this-out moment. I’m not aware of McGuinn playing this at any dates on the “Temples In Flames” tour (and maybe somebody has better info than I do) ; so this could have been a possible alternate for the Petty/McGuinn “RocknRoll Star” duet, or even the Dylan/McGuinn “Chimes Of Freedom”. Several folks whose opinions I respect don’t include this in their Dylan discographies, and they certainly had access to it — so that’s a few strikes against Bob performing here. On the other hand, the taper, or somebody near him, comments “That’s Dylan” as the song begins, so maybe they saw him onstage. Or just got the ID wrong. You make the call. The Queens of Rhythm provide some surprisingly convincing country harmonies.

Sound quality isn’t great, a bit distant, but certainly listenable.

LB-3195, (79min+69min+22min), Off Master – Possibly New Source

This is one of the shows recorded by Russ Cansler that I received strictly for the purpose of digitizing and posting at dime THANK YOU RUSS!, Equipment Used Realistic Pzm’s and a Sony wmD6-C Right Side Of Stage, There is some audience noise in the tape, listen to a sample to find out if you want to grab it. I know my old copy didn’t have the Petty set so this source was a new addition for me. I did not use any EQ or fancy editing. This is an exact replica of the master tape for the purists out there., Notes:, Last show of the 1986 tour and I believe it’s the only live version of Brownsville Girl, Tape Flip at End Of Think About Me, When The Night Comes Falling has the end CUT because of tape ending, Rainy Day Women has the end CUT because of tape flip, Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door is just the beginning before the vocals INCOMPLETE track, Tonight Might Be The Night may be the incorrect title.. I dunno; bittorrent download 09/05; good to very good sound [B-]; very close to mono; cdr tracking numbers were not specified in the info file so ones were chosen that did not break up a song since placing cdr breaks logically by petty sets ending resulted in splitting songs since they are not always tracked right at the beginning of a song; background talking d2t12

Soundcheck Only


Complete circulating soundcheck. Track numbering preserved from the original fileset, which included other material, just in case anybody’s ready to join in seeding. The track IDs have been improved from the originals (I hope), but the flacs are unchanged.

This might be the best-sounding soundcheck in my ongoing series of Dylan arcana, nearly as good as quite a few of the 1986 audience concert tapes, and is one of the most interesting (even though “Brownsville Girl” never delivers the goods, or much audible Dylan). No, there may not be much in terms of lead Dylan vocals, but the material is interesting and the performances solid. “Brownsville Girl” is pretty much the same arrangement (repeated chorus only!) used for the song’s one-and-only live “performance,” at this show. “Maggie’s Farm,” which Dylan launches into after the band riffs on “I Want You,” never turned up in any of the 1986 Dylan/Petty concerts, but it turns up, remarkably enough, as the opening song in their next appearance together, in September 1987 in Tel Aviv. “Shake”, like “Maggie’s Farm” part of the Dylan/Petty 1985 Farm Aid set, is a little known set of Dylan lyrics that never reached a final form, set to a tune very much like Roy Head’s “Treat Her Right”; it had disappeared from the Dylan/Petty playlist after a few airings in Australia earlier in the year. These two songs offer an unexpected preview of the 1987 “Temple In Flames” concerts, looser than most of the “True Confessions” tour and probably more fun as well. If you remember the Rolling Stone article about the early 1986 Dylan/Petty rehearsals and studio sessions that held out so much promise that was never delivered — this is a little window into what probably was going on then, that we’ve never had a chance to hear. Nothing revelatory, but Dylan relaxing and just making music is usually more interesting than Dylan forcing himself to deliver. If, as he said in an interview (or was it Chronicles), he’d lost the ability to perform naturally onstage by the mid-1980s, he could still do it when the audience wasn’t there.

From the original uploader:
This one is a bit more listenable, although it has typical problems associated with recording methods.

This was recorded in an office inside the Omni. The Static is our attempt to fine tune Jerry�s ear monitor. The frequencies changed every night and were very close together.
