Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 1995

There’s a certain part of you that becomes addicted to a live audience. I wouldn’t keep
doing it if I was tired of it. I do about 125 shows a year. It may sound like a lot to people who don’t work that much, but it isn’t. BB King is working 350 nights a year.

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

Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 1994

EG: Was playing at Woodstock [1994] a special moment?
Bob Dylan: Nah, it was just another show, really. We just blew in and blew out of there. You do wonder if you’re coming across, because you feel so small on a stage like that.

A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways

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: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 1976

Bob Dylan 1976

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)

First of Dylan made a guest appearance @ a Roger Miller & Larry Gatlin concert on January 23 @ The Troubadour, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. Then came The Carter Benefit Show on January 25 @ Houston Astrodrome, Houston, Texas.

If You See Here, Say Hello

If you see her say hello, she might be in North Saigon
She left here in a hurry; I don’t know what she was on
You might say that I’m in disarray and for me time’s standing still
Oh I’ve never gotten over her, I don’t think I ever will

Rodney Crowell Sings Bob Dylan – Happy 70th Birthday Rodney Crowell

… When I was 12 years old, or however old I was when Bringing It All Back Home came out, I’d just skip back and forth endlessly between ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ and ‘It’s Alright, Ma’ and ‘Mr. Tambourine Man,’ and now my Dylan roots are showing big time.
— Rodney Crowell
