September 15: Bob Dylan @ Dortmund, West Germany 1987 – Wonderful Concert

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_message message_box_color=”mulled_wine” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-quote-left”]..spectacular from start to finish.. Bob Dylan feels good about himself and his work, this night in Dortmund. You can hear it in his voice. It’s a unique, very wonderful Bob Dylan voice, special to this show. His presence this time is not a matter of being one with the protagonists of the songs or the persons being sung to. It’s a matter of his enthusiasm for the act of
singing, and for each of these songs that he gets to sing. An a subtle but measurable sense, this “Tangled Up in Blue” vocal is not like any other rendition.

  1. Listened to big sections of this, and it’s clear Bob was on fire. Why can’t live songs from concerts like this one end up being the ones released? I’ll Remember You, for example, simply burns.
