Listening to Hard Rain for the first time and I'm really digging it- Shelter from the Storm roars as said upthread. I also really like the version You're a Big Girl Now, so beautiful and heart-wrenching. And the song Oh Sister finally clicked for me, I could never really get into the studio version.

Only dud is Lay Lady Lay, the backing vocals just sound awkward and ugly.

I'm looking forward to hearing the Bootleg Series of this tour.

search around for the "hold the fort for what it's worth" bootleg -- it's prob the best bootleg from this tour ... not as great as Hard Rain, but close.

Wow, the Rolling Thunder Bootleg Series has been kicking my ass in recent months!

Dylan sounds completely fresh and seems to be in a great spirits throughout. I think it ranks with some of the best singing of his career. Also, he arrangements really make the songs sound totally new and different than the studio versions we're so use to. It Ain't Me, Babe and Love Minus Zero, in particular, are especially compelling.

And the songs he sings with Baez come off much better than the songs with her from the '64 Bootleg.

WUT WUT WUT WUT WUT WUT

peel their caps back bob!

yeah i love that set. i was just listening to one of the first rolling thunder shows on that wolfgang's vault site -- they've got a few shows with the whole revue set -- mick ronson, jack elliott, bob neuwirth, roger mcguinn, joan baez etc. kinda gives a better picture of what the whole tour was about.

annoying that dylan hasn't let someone sift through all the film footage and put together a doc or something. there's obviously a lot of it in renaldo and clara, but that's not exactly a straightforward tour film.

the version of "it ain't me babe" on this is so great, the chorus is so much fun in this arrangement

kind of cool news that there is apparently a rolling thunder documentary in the works w/ scorsese involvement. so much cool footage around, I imagine, since they filmed pretty much everything.

tyler what did you think of that 'valley below' bootleg comp?

yes, i have seen the documentary (Jon Lewis), Thursday, 5 December 2013 17:46 (five years ago) link

god, i'm still catching up with all of those comps... I think I've already heard most of it. the re-written "if you see her" that kicks it off is insane.
