I Believe In You ...10:26 am


On the first night of his new tour, in Stockholm, Sweden, Bob Dylan performed I Believe In You. In a kind of set-list-joke (intentional or not) it came right after I Don’t Believe You. The funny thing about that latter song, of-course, is that the phrase “I don’t believe you” never appears in the song (hence the subtitle: She Acts Like We Never Have Met). Anyway, I Believe In You was sung with a lot of feeling and nuance by Bob (… continue reading …)

One more cup of coffee in Stockholm ...11:10 am


On YouTube, with Bob Dylan center-stage and playing guitar, from the Globe Arena a few days ago (March 23rd, 2009). The visuals settle down after some initial craziness, as is the style with these things. One More Cup of Coffee (Valley Below) is a rarity in concert these days, but not as rare as the previous night’s Billy, of-course. (… continue reading …)

Eight carburetors: Bob Dylan on fire on his new tour ...6:19 pm


There’s only been two gigs so far, both in Stockholm, but I think the message to Bob’s European fans is “Catch him if you can.” The reports via Bob Links are rave.

On Lovesick, last night, Bob performed center-stage, alternately singing lines and playing harmonica licks in a spine-tingling fashion, then moving behind his keyboard halfway through and punctuating his dramatic singing with swirling organ riffs. You can dig the clip here. (… continue reading …)

First night of the new Bob Dylan tour: Billy ...10:39 pm


The first show of Bob Dylan’s new European tour was in Stockholm, Sweden. The set list is here. The major surprise, just looking at the list of song titles, was the twelfth tune of the night: Billy. This would appear to be the first live performance of the song that Bob wrote for his great soundtrack to the Sam Peckinpah film, “Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.”

My own Billie is awfully excited to hear about it. (… continue reading …)
