Dolly Parton at Austin City Limits January 18, 2001 (video)

Five days before Dolly Parton released her classic album, Little Sparrow (January 23, 2001), she presented many of the songs on a very special performance at the Austin City Limits TV-show. This was Parton’s debut on the show, and does a classic set. The songs are magnificent and musicianship is out of this world.

Van’s show at the Rockpalast Christmas Show in Dusseldorf on 19-Dec-98 will likely go down as one of Van’s most famous concerts: it was broadcast live; it is an excellent show; the band was buttressed by Candy Dulfer and Fred Wesley.

Bob Dylan: 9 Videos from “Trouble No More – A Musical Film”

Bob Dylan is the greatest singer of our times. No one is better. No one, in objective fact, is even very close. His versatility and vocal skills are unmatched. His resonance and feeling are beyond those of any of his contemporaries. More than his ability with words, and more than his insight, his voice is God’s greatest gift to him.”
-Jann Wenner (Rolling Stone Magazine)

October 25: Full concert audio – Bob Dylan in St. Paul 2001

Coming out of seeing a Bob show, it’s always too easy to say this was the
best ever. For me nothing could ever top 1995 Target Center, but tonight
had its amazing moments which showed a band right at the top of its game.
“Summer Days” into “Sugar Baby” into “Wicked Messenger” was as kick-ass
and profound a sequence of three songs as I could ever have imagined.

October 13: Bob Dylan – Upper Darby, PA 1988 – Soundcheck & Full concert

After a three-week break, Dylan has scheduled four shows in New York with two warmup shows on the outskirts of Philadelphia to conclude his 1988 touring activities. Before the first Philadelphia show, Dylan has an extended soundcheck during which he runs through three country classics with the band: “Give My Love to Rose,” “I Don’t Hurt Anymore,” and ‘Tm Moving On.” The show itself is Dylan’s first since 1986 to feature over 20 songs, including a seven-song encore, four acoustic, three electric, concluding with an impressive “Every Grain of Sand.” “Bob Dylan’s 115’th Dream” and “With God on Our Side” are included. The notion of a full-band version of “Bob Dylan’s 115th Dream” sounds amazing, but in reality Dylan strips it of all its humor.
