Free Download: BOB DYLAN - Amburgo 2011

Il menestrello del rock per antonomasia, catturato live allo Stadtpark Freilichtbuhne lo scorso 26 Giugno. Una registrazione audience tra il VG e l'EX!Se qualche lettore fosse interessato anche alla registrazione audio di Milano all'Alcatraz del 22 Giugno... mi scriva!
Su Brian Steedman commenta lo show:

"Things Have Changed was magnificent - wonderful vamping voice and great expression and phrasing; the harmonica interludes were very atmospherically deep and ‘Yiddish-sounding’. I Don’t Believe You was a similar, superb treatment - great tender phrasing against a simple strummed backing with long line-ending notes. Beyond Here Lies Nothing drove along with gusto and, by now, we were hearing the crowd repeatedly add little whoops of appreciation at the subtleties of the interplay between band and voice. Bob’s guitar up in the mix, Charlie was playing solid clever fills against lovely rhythm from Stu and back-bony bass from Tony. To Ramona was a crooners dream in waltz-time, with Bob daring his voice to let him down… it almost didn’t!! Then, Cold Iron’s Bound: the third centre-stage song, and a rocking stop-starting one, with leaping, echoing voice and lovely drumming from George…
I go from place to place dreaming unsuccessfully of a performance of Visions of Johanna and, when it finally came this time I had been so swept along by Highway 61 Revisited that I didn’t see it coming in its uncharacteristic arrangement. I am, of course, so grateful to hear it any way…
This brings me to Ballad of A Thin Man, which was a standout last year and is, if anything, even better now. Bob has got the gestures off well and the nuances he has developed in his singing and harp-playing are quite amazing; the crowd was, in fact amazed!! Like A Rolling Stone was the anthem singalong we all craved after that, and Bob wittily played ‘I bet you can’t keep in time with me’, and we couldn’t…
A GREAT concert… The band has grown, with Stu at last seeming to me to earn his fee and register involvement, Donnie and Charlie playing skilled, subtle, unflashy stuff, George was resonant and Bob drove the tempo with those weird organ licks… The audience was the last band member and rose to the occasion. Small and perfectly formed (apart from those who know who they are in the front row) it was generous and involved on a warm midsummer evening; Bob saw this, said it was good, and gave generously."
