Seattle 2005 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Showbox, Seattle, WA; May 3, 2005. Very good soundboard.

Thanks to robgronotte for sharing the show at Dime.

robgronotte noted:

This recording is not quite as long as their typical headlining sets of the time, and it seems to be missing the likely encores. This is just the length of what would have fit on a single CDR; maybe the rest of the recording will turn up at some point.

The setlist is very similar to the official live release “Beyond The Swirling Clouds” which was recorded just two months before this, but it honestly sounds better in my opinion, plus it has the incredible medley of Opus 40 and Gotta Serve Somebody which isn’t on the official release.

Compared with the recent Showbox soundboards I have worked on, the mix on this one is the best; just a bit of stereo in the mix to keep it sounding interesting on headphones. The performance is also amazing, and gives me a better view of the album they were promoting “The Secret Migration” which didn’t really impress me much when it was released.

  9. Derrick, Bobby Dylan has been accused of molesting a 12 year old girl back in 65. Mr Zimmerman is living up to the jew stereotype. unbelievable

    By HHH on Aug 18, 2021

  10. It takes 56 years for this woman to come forward?
    Surely no one here belives this, even if Dylan is innocent…mud sticks
    Now watch all the other ‘victims’ come forward

  11. You’d think after 56 years you have had the time to at least check the diaries of one of the most documented stars of all time as to where he was and it would help if you worked out which city (country even?) he was in when you accuse him of attacking you. Should be prosecuted for wasting police time and bringing mendacious and wasteful prosecutions. It’s ludicrous! For most of the time of the accusations he was on the opposite coast and then here in the U.K. It would be funny where it not so desperately sad.

  16. Nice points swappers
    May I add….If this man was really a habitual child molester wouldn’t there be MORE stories than this?
