Yes, I thought so too; he was in fine form.
Just found this.
I saw the Monday and Tuesday shows and you got the better one. Monday had celebs and newspaper critics while Tuesday had dancing fans. Great show. Some won't like the Desolation Row, like the 25th, but I loved it. I think I even saw Bob crack a smile while singing it. Or maybe it was a grimace.
Listening back to the show now, I can appreciate the oddball arrangement of Tangled Up In Blue. It's a grower. Before I ever saw Dylan, the reputation the preceded him (at least as far as what I was aware of) made it seem like his whole show would be like this: classic songs bent far out of their original shape.
Among very good points: "The two encores fit together: Blowin’ in the Wind and Thin Man both deal with facing down, whether in a shared and stirring way, or a frustrated and locked-out way, questions we can’t answer"
All The Truth In The World
The ever wonderful bootlegger, Soomlos, has delivered a capture of the Akron show which is the best sound quality I've heard from this leg. It's early enough and don't think the performance level is as high as later in the tour but very tasty sound.
Seen Bob many many times since my first show in 1987. Funny but when I saw the Southampton show a couple of years back and ended show with Love Sick, I thought it was a brilliant ending. Last show was Bournemouth 2017 and finished with Ballad of a Thin Man.
