Dylan Deathgrowled the Hits.

It was a weird gig. Cocktail jazz/blues versions of Desolation Row, All Along the Watchtower (sounds like Sultans of Swing) and Like a Rolling Stone sunk an otherwise fun blues gig. Lots of newer stuff, and it mostly all sounded good. I wish he'd just played Tempest all the way through, along with select blues favorites (Pill Box Hat, Tombstone Blues). Highway 61 sounded good.

Bob's voice is fucking horrible though. I can't believe how bad it is. It's never been worse.

I don't know. It was interesting. Not an amazing show by any stretch, but not horrible.

Pretty much I loved the songs I didn't know and hated my two favorite songs by him (that he played).

And I recognized more songs than she did, so I got totally fucked over.

Our setlist:

Generic blues instrumental (pretty cool just to see Bob play guitar, it sounded like Pill Box, kinda)
To Ramona
Things Have Changed
Tangled Up in Blue
Blind Willie McTell
Make You Feel My Love
The Levee's Gonna Break
Desolation Row
Highway 61 Revisited
Forgetful Heart
Thunder on the Mountain
Ballad of a Thin Man
Like a Rolling Stone
All Along the Watchtower
Blowin' in the Wind

Not that I could tell what half the songs were.

I forgot to mention that Ballad of a Thin Man was probably the highlight. It fit in well with what they were trying to evoke with the lighting and overall sound.

Yeah, Ballad of a Thin Man was excellent. And seriously, I had a great time seeing him, and he seemed to be having a great time, dancing around and what not.

It was just a weird experience.

Really, Bob was having fun.

More than the crowd seemed to be.

Bumping what I guess is the "official" thread.

Currently exploring this:

Albums That Never Were: Bob Dylan - Infidels (original mix)

And tinkering with my own custom version.

Hopefully will have it finished and uploaded today to share.

From the Dylan in the 80s tribute album that recently came out:

So, reposting from Random:

Has anyone heard Another Self Portrait yet? What an amazing collection. Too much to digest after first listening but I've been going back to Dylan's cover of the traditional "This Evening So Soon". Whopper of a track.

Not on YouTube so can't post it but this newest entry in the Bootleg series really deserves more discussion.

I did a test run the last two days, and had to make some final tweaks. As with my previous reconstruction, "Mo' Mercy", I tend to err on the side of more Dylan is better. Considering Time Out of Mind runs 72 minutes, I don't feel beholden to a more manageable length. And this album had a lot of worthy material.

Having said that, I did leave out a couple of tracks: Union Sundown, which was a late addition by Dylan (also excised by the guy who did the above-linked Mark Knopfler "Original Mix" reconstruction) and is pretty forgettable; Clean-Cut Kid, which just didn't do much for me; and Death Is Not The End, which would be reworked for Down In The Groove (one of Dylan's worst albums).

Not only did I add the fan favorites Blind Willie McTell and Foot Of Pride per the reconstruction, but a couple others that were found on the Bootleg Series Vol. 1-3 and a 2-disc set floating around called "Outfidel Intakes":

* Julius And Ethel, a political/historical rocker about the infamous Rosenberg spy case
* Tell Me, a charming ditty that has a bit of a countryish vibe
* Lord Protect My Child, slow bluesy number

For the most part, I used the Mark Knopfler mixes, but made a couple big changes: after giving the Original Mix of Jokerman a few test drives, I just don't feel the vocal and lyric is as good as the official release version. While the Original Mix does feel more organic as a whole, I'm not willing to sacrifice Dylan's own performance for the music. I also restored Sweetheart Like You to the track listing (omitted by the reconstruction guy because he thought it was "trite"), but with an alternate Knopfler mix instead of the album version. And while it was nice to hear in the reconstruction, I don't think the full band version of Blind Willie McTell has the haunting power of the starker version with just Dylan on piano and Knopfler on guitar found on the Bootleg series. So I changed that too.

I didn't mess around with track order too much aside from inserting the outtakes where they seemed to work best, much like the above reconstruction did.

There's no YouTube video for my favorite track on Another Self Portrait ("This Evening, So Soon"), but I did come across a great version of Dave van Ronk. Here under its alternate title "Tell Ol' Bill":
