I prefer my "best of" edited version of the video to the audio CD. One must have the visuals to really appreciate this event. It is filmed very well and the sound mix is perfect. My Back Pages really shows off each person and the historical event of the night.
btw, Ron Wood rocks harder than anyone else that night, love his take on 7 Days.
Only ever heard a few of these on youtube I suppose...so not up for much of a comment. Anyone know if it was a good night?
Chrissie Hyndes.. yes. She was awesome. and sexy.
Wasn't this the concert where Sinead O'Connor was booed after her SNL performance where she tore up the photo of the pope? That response at Madison Square Garden and from a Dylan audience surprised me. And Dylan's voice was practically painful to endure. I recorded the TV broadcast.
re: "Of the performances, I cringed at hearing Cash and Carter".
Just about every other artist was cringe worthy. Wille Nelson reading the lyrics from that monitor so obviously - sucked the life out of the song.
I won't beat up each and every one of them that were pretty bad, but then again, a bunch of them rocked. Johnny Winter showed them how to take a Dylan song and make it your own.
War, what is it good for, Old Masters...
Yeah, that was that show, sheparded off stage by Kris K. I'm all for Sinead and her politics, continuing in BD's tradition of calling folks out and all--and that is as far as I can go there HERE, as P is off limits--but, even as a fan of MS. O'Connor, I felt that this concert was totally the wrong forum for playing a BOB Marley song and a BOB Dylan tribute show. Bad form I say, makes me wonder...
Great show otherwise, a few performances excepted, and some really highlights abounding... And, I guess the SO incident added some edge to the fight...
I see from your bolded bits above that you liked the rockers the most, and the Seven Days did kick it, as did Johnny...
But, in the 'how to make a Zimmy tune your own alley', I'd have to give kudos to two you did not bolden, Vedder's ownership of Masters of War, and Clapton's blues wank on DTTIA!!! which kick some bluesy butt tock...
I had forgotten that she broke ranks by playing a Marley song. Need to dig out the neglected videocassette.
Yes, I can stand a rocker or two. I think of Zimmy as an electric rocking roller if I say so myself. That is what he really is, or was anyway.
Vedder is a bit too into self everytime I see him perform. Eric's guitar was a bit loud and stiff sounding that night imo. But yes, he knows and loves the song and was not a cringer at all.
Did this appear on DVD yet? If not, take that the dang VHS or Laser Disc, put on Ronnie's 7 Days, take a big toke, and two brews of choice, and blast it as loud as your system can handle it.
And listen to a good performance done with style. Then Johnny Winter too. I like my music with some intensity in a live setting.
You Ain't Going Nowhere is not a rocker, but damn if GE Smith and band is going to make sure these three girls sound pertty awesome on this deep Bob cut. Love GE's lead solo, short but sweet. These three are my top 3 of the night.
What about the George Thorogood take on Wanted Man that did not make the final cut on vinyl nor CD? Anyone remember that? He did a Johnny Cash styled take on this tune, as it is from a Cash live album as we once knew it.
Although it's another obvious teleprompter read, I love Lou Reed's "Pride Of Man". Neil Young stole the show coming on immediately after Sinead.
Seven Days was great- I hope it reminded (or showed) the audience that Woody's a very talented guy and not just a guitar player for the Stones.
I think the next album up for discussion is World Gone Wrong. I hope I’m right.
World Gone Wrong is singer-songwriter Bob Dylan's 29th studio album, released by Columbia Records in October 1993.
It was Dylan's second consecutive collection of only traditional folk songs, performed acoustically with guitar and harmonica. The songs tend to deal with darker and more tragic themes than the previous outing, Good as I Been to You.
The album received a warm, if not excited reception from critics. Despite earning a Grammy award for Best Traditional Folk Album, it peaked at a modest #70 in the U.S., #35 in the UK.
In May 1993, Dylan once again held sessions at his Malibu home inside his garage studio. Recorded solo in a matter of days, a total of 14 songs were recorded without a single change in guitar strings. Marked by distortion, the recording quality was very primitive by modern standards, with very casual microphone placement and very little tuning. There were some rumors that Dylan had mastered the album from cassette tapes, as Bruce Springsteen had done with Nebraska, but those rumors have been as difficult to prove as they have been to dismiss.
All songs are Traditional, arranged by Bob Dylan, except where noted.
1. "World Gone Wrong" – 3:57
2. "Love Henry" – 4:24
3. "Ragged & Dirty" – 4:09
4. "Blood in My Eyes" – 5:04
5. "Broke Down Engine" – 3:22
6. "Delia" – 5:41
7. "Stack a Lee" – 3:50
8. "Two Soldiers" – 5:45
9. "Jack-A-Roe" – 4:56
10. "Lone Pilgrim" (B.F. White, Adger M. Pace) – 2:43
Over to you!
I rate this one high. Bob at his best rootsiest. I remember reading the liner notes as I listened and felt like I was being lead into the secret sanctum of blues and folk.
This and Time out of Mind are the best of the 90s decade. Yes better than Love and Theft. Means more in the long run and is more real and true.
The only one I know is Blood In My Eyes. I saw it on youtube before they took it off. Kind of funny clip and a good song. I like it.
Delia and Broke Down Engine are really good also.
Two Soldiers is a heartwrencher.. just great.
"Lone Pilgrim" is one of my favorite Dylan tracks of all time.
Another great one, I agree. Just a wonderful album. I listened to it all last night.
btw the vinyl is nothing special imo.
You outta yer mind? The vinyl is worth $350.00 if you can find a copy. Dutch pressed and very limited, glad I got one. Stunning art on the cover looks great.
I didnt think it sounded much better than the cd is what I meant by nothing special.
350.00???? wow.. I think I paid maybe 40 bucks for mine awhile back.
Anybody that would pay 350.00 is out of their mind lol
Next album coming soon. Sorry about the delay.
