Dylan Monday - Bob Live in NYC November 20, 2006
Bob Dylan November 20, 2o06 New York City, NY Set 1 (part 1) (part 2) Set 2 (whole)
As promised, here's Bob Dylan and his band's recent performance at the New York City Center, a venue I've never even heard of. It's another fine show from this tour, although I tend to max out on these things. Let me first say that this show offers up "Boots of Spanish Leather," the tune that floored me a few years back at the Trocadero. It's a good version, as the band lays back and doesn't drown out the vocals on one of his quietest, most gentle tracks.
Most of the material comes from the new album, Modern Times, which yes, I still plan to discuss and upload (a few tracks). I think that some of the best stuff from this show are the new songs, despite the fact that the band is playing them for the first few times live. You would think that "It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding" or "Tangled Up In Blue" would be perfect and the new stuff would sound like works in progress.
