Biography

BOB DYLAN Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Dylan Store

This really is great. Being a relatively new Dylan fan (at 21 I really can't be counted as anything else), I never got to see Dylan like this, but there is nothing I wish more than that I had. Don't get me wrong, I love Dylan as he is now too, but the way he was in the early sixties is a completely different artist and I would have liked to see him as well. Sadly as this concert happened only a few years after the birth of my parents I'll have to make due with this...
In this recording Dylan is not only great, he is hilarious. Having only seen him in recent years I haven't seen much of his stage persona, but on these discs he jokes and chats with the audience between songs which only improves the experience. The fact that it also contains some of my favourites (If You Gotta Go, Go Now (Or Else You Got to Stay All Night),Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues,Who Killed Davey Moore?) doesn't hurt.
The complete track listing is as follows:

Disc one
"The Times They Are a-Changin'" - 3:29
"Spanish Harlem Incident" - 3:07
"Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues" - 4:06
"To Ramona" - 6:01
"Who Killed Davey Moore?" - 4:46
"Gates of Eden" - 8:32
"If You Gotta Go, Go Now (Or Else You Got to Stay All Night)" - 4:06
"It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)" - 11:26
"I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met)" - 4:01
"Mr. Tambourine Man" - 6:33
"A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall" - 7:44
Disc two
"Talkin' World War III Blues" - 5:52
"Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" - 4:34
"The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" - 6:57
"Mama, You Been on My Mind" - 3:35 (with Joan Baez)
"Silver Dagger" - 3:47 (with Joan Baez)
"With God on Our Side" - 6:17 (with Joan Baez)
"It Ain't Me, Babe" - 5:11 (with Joan Baez)
"All I Really Want to Do" - 4:01

And honestly this, along with Highway 61 revisited, is my favourite Dylan and I would recommend it to anyone.

THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. 6, a bootleg that has been around for decades, is a Halloween show from the Philharmonic Hall in New York City. One of the most important shows in Dylan's early career, this show gave quite an overview at the time from Dylan's ever-growing song book, including new, bizaare songs that would show up within a few months on Dylan's fifth LP, BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME. While much has been made of the later electric performance of the 1960s, it is here that you can see how good Dylan really was with just a guitar, a harmonica, and the signing girlfriend. Covering such a broad overview, Dylan shows all the budding facets of his art up to this time, from the protest songs (including ones that never made the studio records), the more introspective material, and the radical new direction Dylan was pursuing with the three songs from the unreleased (and unrecorded, for that mater) fifth album, BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME. He proves him a very masterful solo performer. If you like Joan Baez, you greatly enjoy the four songs she performs. If you don't like Baez, this won't win you over.

This 1964 concert, the first all acoustic performance (barring MTV UNPLUGGED, which also has a band) to enter Bob Dylan's discography, captures Dylan at a peak period as he was making a transitional move into rock and roll. Historically significant, funny, and overall Dylan, this installment of the Bootleg Series show a new side of early Dylan, and as VoodooLord7 points out, quite a contrast from the 1966 Manchester concert. What is so startling about this concert is how Dylan comes across as giddy, young, and, overall, a Minnesota boy just honoured to be playing at such a distinguished venue.

I've had this commercially released CD for awhile and never got around to playing it because I've owned various qulaity copies of this concert on bootleg for years.
When I put on the first disc this morning I was expecting to hear Dylan's usual opener at that time, The Times They Are A Changing, but, instead, what I heard was a Dylan 'talking blues'.
As it turns out the labels on the discs were reversed at the factory and since the actual second disc starts with Talking WWIII Blues that's what I heard first.
I do, however, have both discs to my relief.
The printing error doesn't make much difference to me as long as I have all the material.
I'm just curious if anyone else has come across this anomalie.
The first thing I did was check these Amazon reviews and no one has mentioned it.
Great show by a young, chatty, funny, insightful, soon to be legendary artist, by the way.
The missing star is due to the tracks Dylan performs with Joan Baez.
Her voice is overbearing and shrill and kills the nuance of Dylan's poignant lyrics.
Shame she's on some great songs.
All in all though a worthwhile purchase.

After a long career which has famously been `Bootlegged' many times, Bob Dylan has now decided to do what the fans have wanted all along and started to release previously archived material - unreleased demos, live recordings, stuff that never made it onto albums etc - in a series of official Bootleg albums. The first three volumes were a good mixture of alternative versions and live numbers that never made it to albums and included many important and interesting recordings, such as the original Blood on the Tracks sessions. The fourth volume was the infamous Manchester concert from 1966, recorded at a time when Dylan was accused of being a traitor to the folk movement for his electric album Highway 61. So far so good, these have been recordings well worth owning, especially the visceral '66 concert. But for volume 6, a live recording from the 1964 English tour I feel as though material is now being released for the sake of it and to cash in on avid fans (such as myself) who will buy anything released by his Bobness.

It's not to say it's a bad record, it's just that there's not much new here. The previous bootlegs added to the sum total of original Dylan in my collection. Here we just get another live recording of stuff we've heard a thousand times before. There is the odd track interspersed of which I do not already have a copy, but there isn't much. And there's nothing to set it apart, none of the vigour of the Before the Flood concerts or the originality and reinterpretation of Dylan at Budokan. It's almost like another greatest hits compilation. 3 stars for the feeling of cashing in by Bob.
