BOB DYLAN
New Jersey 1988 [Scorpio, 1CD]

Live at the Garden State Performing Arts Center, Holmdel, New Jersey, June 24, 1988. Very good soundboard.

This is the companion release to Bob Dylan’s June 15, 1988 gig in Denver.

This is what Bobsboots.com wrote:

“Here is yet another powerhouse performance from the early stages of the Never Ending Tour. This performance was chosen not only for its fantastic sound quality, but also for the fact that there are seven songs on this show that weren’t performed the week before as documented on the sister disc release by Scorpio. Perhaps, best of all, the entire 75-minute concert is captured in its entirety on one disc! It’s been a while since that happened! This is another great (and affordable) release to add to the collection.”

Thanks to Lincoln Park Mark for sharing these tracks.

  3. I can’t get enough of Dylan.
    Do you have any recordings from the 90’s or from the last years?

  4. What a great gig - thank you so much. I have very few Dylan boots that even start to compare with this - it’s perfect. Much appreciated.

  5. I really liked the “rock” version of “Masters of War”, but overall thought the Denver show was much better.

  6. The coolest part of this ROIO? I was there! Not the best Dylan show I ever saw, but certainly a very nice night, and I’m looking forward to listening to it all again. Don’t suppose they’ll put out the Alarm’s opening set, will they? B^) Thanks–a real treat!

  8. Another 1988 show !!! Thank You… ‘88 was the first time I saw Mr. Bob live. It was a rippin’ show on the edge of the Columbia river in George, WA. @ the Gorge Winery. The sun had just set and the stars were out by the thousands… It felt like Bob was inspired by the amazing beauty and years later listening to a crude bootleg of the show it was clear he was, you can hear two guys who had been following the tour and were commenting excitedly about how “Their on Fire tonight” The first three songs without any breaks were_ Subterranean Homesick Blues/Absolutely Sweet Marie & All Along the Watchtower (Sounding Like the Clash w/ Dylan singing) Never seen a good soundboard version of that show but ya never know ? So thanks so much for posting these ‘88 shows… It holds a special place in my soul !!!

  12. when bobs voice was in shape he will(not so much now .how old is he? how many gigs is he in?)blow house down in a manner of speaking. cries like a fire in the sun i`d say.his phrasing and tone are a matter of taste but his voice was poweful then and you can hear it on these.thanks!

  13. Amazing sound! So glad this one is still up here… While Bob wasn’t at his very best in terms of making albums back then, he sounds great here, and he was on the verge of making one of his “comeback” albums, the excellent Oh Mercy.

    It’s funny… As great as Bob’s albums have been over the past 12 years, this is a much better show than anything I’ve heard perform live lately. I just saw him play two weeks ago, and I wish he had sounded this good! Thanks as always, Big O!
