Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 2001

Bob Dylan live 2001

I don’t even consider this work as part of my life. Not even close. My life doesn’t revolve around my work. Not even a little bit. I mean, I’ve got millions of fans and I know that and I’m more than happy to go out there and play for them… But that’s not my life. My life is private and personal and completely filled up.
-Bob Dylan (Rome Press Conference, July 23, 2001)

Things Have Changed

A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There’s a woman on my lap and she’s drinking champagne

Girl From The North Country

If you’re traveling till the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
For she once was the true love of mine

It ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
It don’t matter, anyhow
And it ain’t no use to sit and wonder why, babe
If you don’t know by now

And let others do for you

  1. Great live version of Mississippi, one of my all-time faves and, unfortunately, one that I have not been able to find a live version to download. Thanks for posting.
