The first stand-alone release of Bob Dylan In Concert - Brandeis University 1963 is a previously unknown live recording of a 21-year-old Bob Dylan taped at the Brandeis First Annual Folk Festival in Waltham, Massachusetts on May 10, 1963. Bob Dylan In Concert - Brandeis University 1963 captures the rollicking wit, deadpan delivery and driving intensity of the young artist's on-stage persona in an assortment of end-of-the-world songs -- none of them commercially available at the time -- performed in front of an appreciative audience two weeks prior to the release of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (May 27, 1963).
Drawn from two sets that spring night at the Brandeis Folk Festival, tracks on Bob Dylan In Concert - Brandeis University 1963 include "Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance" (incomplete), "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues," "Ballad Of Hollis Brown," "Masters of War," "Talkin' World War III Blues," "Bob Dylan's Dream," and "Talkin' Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues."
Top customer reviews
Opener 'Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance' is incomplete (it has a very brief fade in) and there are three talkin' blues songs. The sound quality over all is very good but it does suffer slightly on 'Talkin' World War III Blues' and the first half of 'Bob Dylan's Dream' (Dylan is heard asking at the end of 'Talkin' World War III Blues' if a microphone is plugged in which probably explains why).
Clocking in at 38 minutes and housed in a standard jewel case, this is essential listening for Dylan aficionados.
Dylan sounds assured and confident with his material and his audience, and is obviously enjoying himself. However this lightness of touch does belie the passion he has for his songs. Two tracks, Hollis Brown and, in particular, Masters of War, are delivered with power and, even, some real hate, while the voice for Bob Dylan's Dream carries deep loss and regret for a life and friends left behind. "I wish we could sit simply in that room again."
It feels VERY diffrent from the studio recordings. Buy it and listen often even if you've been listening to the songs for 40+ years!
