Denver 1988 [Scorpio, 2CD]
Live at Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre, Denver, Colorado, June 15, 1988. Very good soundboard.
Even though Bob Dylan had released Down In The Groove (his 25th studio album) on May 30, 1988, he did not play any of the album’s tracks on this show.
For this round of concerts, the wikipedia noted that “Song selection also became more adventurous, with setlists from different nights offering little resemblance to one another. The concerts would also alternate between full-band, electric sets and smaller, acoustic sets (with GE Smith providing Dylan’s only accompaniment); it was during the acoustic sets that Dylan incorporated an endless variety of traditional cover songs, a marked departure from previous shows that depended heavily on his own compositions.”
For quite some time, this show circulated among fans minus two tracks - Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right and Maggie’s Farm. Since then, a complete show (unknown label) has surfaced but the popular Bob Dylan bootleg site, Bobsboots.com, has listed this version among its “must have” silver discs.
According to Bobsboots.com, “This is a perfect quality soundboard recording… this show boasts the first performance in over a decade of Mama, You Been On My Mind and One More Cup Of Coffee and the first ever performance of Eileen Aroon. Everyone knows of the Never Ending Tour… well, this is how it all got started. A week before, the show had premiered in California. This is the sixth performance of the new show with new songs and an all new band that includes SNL guitarist GE Smith. All fans of 1988 should own this one.”
