I've not. But My dad saw him at the Isle of Wight. He proclaims to this day the stuff about him being off-form isn't true, but the crowd thought he was going to play longer.

Obviously its something I really want to do before one of us dies. Dylan and me, not my dad and me.

I can't say I have - but there's still a few unfilled gaps in his summer schedule this year...here's hoping! 

Did anybody else hear that Bob is in the middle of writing Chronicles Vol. 2? I hope this is true, Vol. 1 was brilliant.





Yeah,i've heard that,now i just need to read Vol. 1  I've also heard there's a new album that could be out next year that will be the third part in the trilogy of Time Out of Mind,Modern Times and the new album.

A new album would be a fourth part wouldn't it, after Time Out Of Mind, "Love & Theft" and Modern Times?

I've never seen Dylan live either, he was in Glasgow last year but I couldn't make it. I can't see him stopping his Neverending Tour in the next couple of years though. I would have really liked to have seen him around the early '00s, when Charlie Sexton and Larry Campbell were in his band, I heard they were some of his best ever shows.

Apparently, Bob considers "Love And Theft" to be the start of his current trilogy, wih MT the second part.

It would have been a fourth part if you were starting from TooM I was meaning.

I'll let you away...this time 
But I also tend to consider Time Out Of Mind as part of his current "cycle", regardless of what Bob says...what does he know...

Can he still sing?  Having heard him on his Radio 2 (?) show recently his voice was so rough and gravely the tree I was driving past ended up sanded and the road was covered in shingle.

His singing voice is more gravelly than his speaking voice actually.

Okay, I'm taking a cue from the Springsteen thread. Would everyone like to make a top twenty Dylan songs list of their own? We can compare with each other and see what we get, it would be interested to how how similar or different they all are.

Some very different lists there, some songs which I would never have thought of (not in a bad way, mind). I'll put mine up tomorrow, I'm going to need to rack my brain for this. My favourites don't really change that much from time to time I don't think, but I've never actually ranked them before.

I actually already wish I had put Idiot Wind a little higher

Larry - great idea with the era-thing, its quite interesting how they compare with each other. Also good to see I Want You feature in 75% of lists so far, fantastic song.

Here's how G.O.B's list splits up:

10 from the Electric Years
4 from the Rolling Thunder Years
3 from the Folk Years
1 from the Revival Years
1 from the Christian Years
1 from the Wilderness Years

It is good to see placings for I Want You, it's a standout on an album that I normally take as a whole because it's so cohesive. His voice had a really good quality on that album that I don't think you can hear on any others, I could listen to that voice all the time. Also good to see a good showing for Stuck Inside Of Mobile, the playing on that track is amazing, especially the drums. There's a few lines here and there on it that I always look forward to as well, like 'they all fall there so perfectly', for example. Just how the the two rhymning words 'all' and 'fall' are sung together is a great delivery.

Thanks for the breakdown Larry.I really like I want you,a great song on a great album.However,i think my favourite album is still Blood on the Tracks,there's just a maturity in his lyrics on that album i like and it's obvious that this is not the Dylan of Blonde on Blonde or Highway 61.Also,don't know if this has been posted or not but i got this from his site:

DYLAN WINS PULITZER PRIZE
Bob Dylan was awarded with the special citation on Monday, April 7, making history as the first rock and roll artist to be honored. Singer, songwriter, author, musician, and poet, was recognized for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."

I'm getting the same feeling about It's All Over Now, Baby Blue. Pretty much the whole acoustic half of Bringing It All Back Home is top-notch actually. Damn you Bob.

I seen Bob at Manchester around three years ago and i wasnt disappointed so to speak because i was aware he has changed alot, but he didnt play his guitar and some of his well known songs didnt garner any cheers of recognition from the crowd, simpily because they didnt sound much like the original recordings, but he finished with rolling stone and it was electric and i dont care what happened to be honest, i was honoured to be seeing the man in person. His glorious catalouge of music is all i need

Although the first half is good, I always preferred the acoustic songs to the electric, for me the music for the electric tracks aren't really as adventurous as the lyrics they go with. I would only say that for On The Road, Maggie's Farm and Outlaw Blues though - Love Minus Zero/No Limit, She Belongs To Me and Bob Dylan's 115th Dream are among his best. The acoustic songs just have something about them though, they're pretty weird, and the lyrics are amazing.

Justfontaine, I'm glad to hear you got to see him. He's stuck to the keyboards quite a bit in his live shows, especially around the time you saw him. He says the guitar can't reach 'the bottom' he's looking for in his rhythm playing. I'm not surprised the songs were changed, apparently he does that quite a bit - says he doesn't want to be a nostalgia act trotting out the hits, wants to be constantly moving and changing, which I think is admirable considering how demanding audiences can be.
