Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 1991

You hear sometimes about the glamour of the road, but you get over that real fast. There are a lot of times that it’s no different from going to work in the morning. Still, you’re either a player or you’re not a player. It didn’t really occur to me until we did those shows with the Grateful Dead [in 1987]. If you just go out every three years or so, like I was doing for a while, that’s when you lose touch. If you are going to be a performer, you’ve got to give it your all.”
-Bob Dylan (to Robert Hilburn, November 1991)

Shelter From The Storm

‘Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
Come in, she said
I’ll give ya shelter from the storm

And it’s just across the borderline

Señor (Tales Of Yankee Power)

Senor, senor, do you know where we’re heading?

Seems like I been down this way before
Is there any truth in that, senor?
