"Thankeew" Bob Dylan squaks as the house comes down on the Manchester Free Trade Hall. Not the Albert Hall as the printers wrongly said. Probably the finest live performance of any song as just finished. Bob Dylan and the Hawks(The Band) had wailed out Like A Rolling stone with so much velocity, even the guy who shouted "Judas" must have been tapping his foot. This comes at the end of a sensational set. The first half acoustic, the second very much not. The album begins with She Belongs To Me, Fourth Time Around, Visions Of Johanna and Its All Over Now, Baby Blue. They are all well received by the taut audience. Three songs of sublime harmonica playing follow; Desolation Row, Just Like A Woman and Mr Tambourine Man. The second half begins and Bob looks drunk and stoned. He knows fine well what hes about to get. Slow hand claps and booing from the off. They sweep through Tell Me Momma, I Dont Believe You, baby Let Me Follow U Down, Just Like Tom Thumbs Bliues and Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat before being drowned out by slow hand clapping. One Too Many Mornings ( a surprise in the electric set) and Ballad Of A Thin Man follow before the creme de la creme of the album: Like A Rolling Stone. "Judas" is heard while the band warm up, to this Bob replies, "you're a liar" and then either "you're a F****** liar" or "play F****** loud". Whatever it is he says, the band play a devastating seven minutes and the intensity with which Bob pronouces: "Didnt You?" is frightening. A superb album from the archieve that is Bob Dylan's career.
