Bob Dylan - Acoustic Thunder


We all know how much DaddyRich loves the acoustic performance. The wife and I just picked up the instrument ourselves and are having a great time killing some notes and strangling others. As much as I enjoy hearing other great artists do their thing 'au naturel' (as it were) Bob Dylan doing so is just sublime. It's the way he was always meant to be head, in my humble estimation. And yes, I do love the Royal Albert Hal gigs but, to my mind, his greatest strength lies in being heard in that softly spoken voice that can sometimes rise to a roar. I so regret not giving his music a chance when I was much younger, since it has enriched my life so much since that first night I said to myself (in a smoke-filled room) "This damn Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 1 has been in the family record collection for so long, what is it about this guy? I hear the songs are supposed to have great content, but his voice is annoying... blah, blah, blah" And after only one serious listen it became so evident to me that ONLY Bob could sing these songs and do it that way. Immediately his voice and lyrical beauty smacked me into consciousness. Thereafter he became part of my Holy Bob Trinity (time-lines be damned!) of Bob Marley and Bob Mould. These performances are amazing and after you can listen past the sound quality available for 1975-1976 bootlegs, great thing are to be found for waiting ears.

I'd love to hear these tracks. How does this new rapidlink format work? Is it only for registered members?

Daddy Rich said...

Oh crap, is that really how that goes? I thought it would just be some link protection. Ok, tomorrow I will put them in a more accesible place.

Gotta say that my life just got brighter given the return of the sorely-missed Daddy Rich. Thanks for giving it another go. The human spirit prevails over the bastards.
