Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 1976

Bob Dylan 1976

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_message message_box_color=”mulled_wine” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-quote-left”]I just try to be poetically and musically straight. I think of myself as more than a musician, more than a poet. The real self is something other than that. Writing and performing is what I do in this life and in this country. But I could be happy being a blacksmith. I would still write and sing. I can’t imagine not doing that. You do what you’re geared for.
-Bob Dylan (Neil Hickey Interview, Malibu, California – 11 September 1976)[/vc_message][/vc_column][/vc_row]

She left here in a hurry; I don’t know what she was on

  1. This is the most perfect version of Idiot Wind; so glad it was officially released way back when so I could savor it and enjoy it over the years!
