  2. I saw shows in Boston Garden and Madison Square Garden on this tour. In “It’s All Right Ma, I’m Only Bleeding” when Dylan spat out the line “But even the President of the United States sometimes must have to stand naked!” in the middle the Watergate scandal both arenas erupted. Thinking about that today, it’s like deja vu all over again (credit to Yogi Berra.) 1974 arena audience recordings can be a pain… and there is an official release with excellent sound and some great tracks by the Band, but enjoy.

  3. Songster-ya stole my thunder! I’ve told exactly the same story with exactly the same audience reaction at the LA Forum Valentines Day performance.

    It’s really nice to hear the too few Planet Waves tracks sprinkled throughout.

    By Happy Camper on Dec 11, 2018

  4. This is probably Dylan’s peak as a live performer. His voice is as good as it ever was , clear and precise, unlike the mumbling that would follow in the eighties and beyond. Today he can’t sing at all . Also the band is in top form . A legendary tour .

    By Bill on Dec 11, 2018

  5. Rumor has it Bob gots a big un

    By U L E on Dec 11, 2018

  6. Rumor has it Robbie and Rick gots big uns too

    By U L E on Dec 11, 2018

  7. Rumor also has it Levon had a big un but only played with it hisself

    By U L E on Dec 11, 2018

  8. Outstanding. Thanks

    By Ron on Dec 11, 2018

  9. Must commend for not posting another geezer show from the two thousands ‘ however my complaint is that these songs are put together from different dates . It would be much better for if a show was from one date . You want to hear how they sounded that night .

    By Pat Grooms on Dec 11, 2018

  10. Also these songs are not in sequence. I’m sure that the concert didn’t end with The Weight .

    By Pat Grooms on Dec 11, 2018

  11. We like Bobbie
    and we like The Band
    we like Bobby AND The Band
    but which is better?


    By Harry Hill on Dec 11, 2018

  12. “Levon had more meat than the local abattoir”

    “Those days back then hell we would have gone with anything girls, old ladies, boys, even goats. Hell the only difference with goats is you had to go round the other end to kiss ‘em”

  14. WOW waht a gift! Huge Band fan they played a lot around my hometown as the Hawks way back in the day..saturday afternoon teen dances at the local Auto workers hall and night time shows at the Jubillee Pavillion on the Lake[ontario] which was owned and operated by Mr.Mcrohan [father of Dennis and Jerry Mcrohan aka Edmonton , Steppenwolf members] So much musical history passed through the area..All the toronto guitar players at the time used Telecasters they claimed were sell offs from Robbie Robertson..anyhow, thanks guys !!!!

    By sluggo on Dec 11, 2018

  15. Size matters ‘ but Bob Dylan is an ugly shriveled up old prune . I don’t care how big his prick is .

    By Dee Dee Longley on Dec 12, 2018

  16. Robbie Robertson was a handsome hunk of a man back then though . The fact that he has a huge prick would have been a plus , Danko was fine too . Too bad I wasn’t born yet .

    By Dee Dee Longley on Dec 12, 2018

  17. On this day in 1964, I travelled to Los Angeles and met up with Jackie DeShannon, who was to further my musical education. She introduced me to The Byrds, Ry Cooder and Bonnie Raitt amongst others. Access to Robert Johnson’s music was thin on the ground at this period of time in the UK, and I got a copy of ‘Preaching Blues’ on a Country Blues compilation album whilst on this trip.

    Ciro’s on the Sunset Strip was a theatre nightclub from a previous era and is now called The Comedy Store. I saw The Byrds there at this time and they played ‘Mr Tambourine Man’, ‘Turn Turn Turn’, and ‘The Bells of Rhymney’. They were really good; Jim McGuinn was someone to behold and they were to release their debut single, ‘Mr Tambourine Man’, on Columbia some five months later. I attended a session where they also backed Jackie DeShannon on some demos of her songs.

    By Jimmy Page on Dec 12, 2018

  18. whatever does your history have to do with this presentation by Bob Dylan and the greatest band ever

    By dropkicksarge on Dec 12, 2018

  19. Sarge’ do you think it could actually be the real Jimmy ? I’m starting to think he’s messing with us for kicks .

    By Thomas on Dec 12, 2018

  20. I remember Jackie DeShannon well from the 60s . What the world needs now is love sweet love ‘ There can be a new tomorrow and her biggest song ‘ Put a little love in your heart. Very talented with a great voice ‘ plus she was gorgeous ‘ long blonde hair ‘ bangs . A knockout. Had a big crush at the time .

    By Thomas on Dec 12, 2018

  21. Montréal is in Québec , not Ontario. track 214

    By David Young on Dec 12, 2018

  22. Same with 107

    By Simon Peter on Dec 12, 2018

  23. Tracks 106, 119, 212, 307 are all from Largo Maryland not Florida.

    Thanks Big O for another great treat.

    By Skinny Marink on Dec 14, 2018

  24. Of The Bonus tracks that were omitted form the posting only 312 and 313 were “officially released” on a radio only promo 45. The rest of the tracks are soundboard in origin but have never been officially released

    By Skinny Marink on Dec 14, 2018

  25. @ Skinny. Not to mention, neither “Hollis Brown” nor “Forever Young” appear on Before the Flood at all. Not just these particular performances. The songs themselves, in any version, aren’t on the album.
