Bob Dylan: “Live 75” – Rolling Thunder Road Show


Holy shit! I listened to this (2-CD) album, “Live 75” (Rolling Thunder) album in the 70s and didn’t get it. I didn’t care for the completely different versions of familiar songs.

Now, after listening to it for hours while driving to Big Sur a few weeks ago, I do get it. Sheesh!

Dylan was on fire, his voice never better, the phrasing brilliant. Joan Baez’ harmonies are exquisite. The band is hot.

Plus, I saw the film on Netflix. There have been grumblings about some fictional elements thrown into the film, but hey, just listen to the music. I want to see it on a big screen, but it doesn’t seem to be available anywhere. C’mon, Netflix!

Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don’t wanna be your boss…
