Charleston 2021 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Municipal Auditorium, Charleston, West Virginia; November 13, 2021. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to jefft3881 for sharing the show at Dime.

jefft3881 noted:

Again, as it’s been a week since this show, I’m uploading this version in case it’s the only version there is. Again, I accidentally shut off my M10 recorder at the end of Jimmy Reed and missed the last song. Again, My friend Bill (who sat next to me) got a capture with his iPhone so I added the end from his recording to give us a complete recording. His part begins with the last few notes of Jimmy Reed. Also, the two young guys sitting behind us were loud and rowdy (they keep hollering for TONY!) though they’re pretty much confined to the end/beginning of songs. Nevertheless, I spent @3 hours turning them down so they’re less intrusive. Otherwise, sound is excellent. Bob’s vocals are loud and clear and I thought this show was at least as good as Columbus if not just slighty better. Enjoy!

  11. Hey Anti , triple h , RIP DAN REEVES . I first knew bout Dan from the 60s bein a Dallas Cowboys fan . Dan was a all purpose running back , could run , catch and block . Was a quarterback in college . Coach Landry used dan a lot on the halfback option passes . He is most famous for takin a pitch out from Dandy Don Meredith and throwin a touchdown pass to Lance Rentzel in the famous ice bowl game . It gave the cowboys a 17 14 lead until the packers drove over 60 yards and scored on Bart Starrs famous quarterback sneak wit 13 seconds on the clock .

    By Derrick on Jan 1, 2022

  12. He was only 77 years old

    By The AntiChrist on Jan 1, 2022

  13. Dan Reeves was 77 , he was involved in some great and not so great cowboys playoff moments , he was the intended receiver in the 4th quarter of super bowl 5 when Craig Morton’s pass was too high and tipped off dans fingers into the hands of Baltimore colts , Mike Mad Dog Curtis . Jim O’Brien kicked a field goal to win the game 16 13 for the colts . My cowboys would finally win it all the next season 71, ending 5 years of playoff frustration

    By Derrick on Jan 1, 2022

  14. Dan later became a successful head coach , he trained under coach Tom Landry as a assistant coach before becoming head coach of the broncos where he coached the great John Elway . Unfortunately they lost 3 Super Bowls to better teams . The giants , redskins and 49ers . That 49ers loss in super bowl 24 Jan of 90 was the worst ass kicking in super bowl history 55 10 . I never seen such a dominant performance in any game ever . Joe Montana , Jerry Rice , Roger Craig , Tom Rathman, John Taylor was unstoppable. And the defense wit Charles Haley and Ronnie Lott was also great . That 89 49er team may have been the best pro team ever

    By Derrick on Jan 1, 2022

  15. Tom Brady the GOAT ? Bull fuckin shit . I’d take Joe Montana in big games any day of the week and twice on Sundays

    By Derrick on Jan 1, 2022

  16. Dan Reeves would coach the Atlanta Falcons to a super bowl in 98 , losin to his old team the broncos . Dan was a class act , sure wish he could have won at least one of them Super Bowls , but that’s life I guess . Dan was from a different era , a time when players was mostly white , and even the coons behaved like gentlemen. No tattoos, dreadlocks, actin like monkeys in heat wit all that classless celebrating bullshit . It was a much better time

    By Derrick on Jan 1, 2022

  17. Bless you Dan . You was a class act

    By Derrick on Jan 1, 2022

  18. Right on Derrick, r I p coach dan reeves

    By Nelson on Jan 2, 2022

  19. Not too many niggers when he played , and the ones that were playing didn’t act like these crazy niggers today . They had class too.

    By Nelson on Jan 2, 2022

  20. Trust you Nelson to bring in the racist element to the conversation.

    By HHH on Jan 2, 2022

  21. Dead within days of each other football legends John Madden , Dan Reeves and throw in Betty White. A pretty depressing way to end the old and bring in the new year . Rest In piece all.

    By Don on Jan 2, 2022

  22. Yeah Nelson, you couldn’t even get the R I P bit right!!

    By The AntiChrist on Jan 2, 2022

  23. What am I ??

    By Jocko P on Jan 2, 2022

  24. Another geezer show here . Bob Dylan , now in his eighties. What’s the point of this show ? Why does Dylan continue to damage his legacy by continuing to embarrass himself in his old age . He is a parody, as are Mick Jagger , Keith Richards , Neil Young , Elton John , Paul McCartney , Bruce Springsteen and others . They still think it’s 1975

    By Pat Grooms on Jan 2, 2022

  25. Another name stealer . I’m with you Derrick. Rest in piece coaches Dan Reeves and John Madden . Legends of the game .

    By HHH on Jan 2, 2022

  26. As to Pat’s geezer comment, Dylan released an outstanding album of new material in 2021 and on this tour he is largely playing that material. He’s not coasting on recycling fifty year old hits like the Stones. If anything, the remarkable thing about this setlist is how few of his best known older songs are included.

    I can think of no better lyric from the past year than “My Own Version of You”. The fact that he wrote it at age 80 — more praiseworthy than damnable.

    By Frederick Miller on Jan 2, 2022

  27. Two balls dropped into my mouth at the stroke of midnight while I was stroking my tink coc k.

    By Derrick on Jan 2, 2022

  28. My ass was pounded by four coc ks for a few hours. Then they bukakked me, draped my emaciated body with tinsel, and left me sobbing in my bathtub.

    Happy new year.

    By Derrick on Jan 2, 2022

  29. You deserved it Derrick. Fucking loser.

    By HHH on Jan 2, 2022

  30. I gots some sympathy for this guy Derrick.

    He done posted right here some interesting and historical words about football (and RIP those two guys) then it seems to me like some impersonator has taken his name and typed disgusting stuff about folks plowin his ass and jizzin on his face. I don’t believe there things happened, nosir. God bless you Mr Derrick and May He save you from impersonators and unbelievers.

    I wishes you all a peaceful new year

    By Workingman on Jan 2, 2022

  31. Hey everybody

    Happy new year from England.

    How about some end of year awards?

    The first category could be tiniest coc. I nominate Pat Grooms for that one.

    By Swappers on Jan 2, 2022

  32. I want Derrick’s balls in my mouth and his tiny dik in my ass. Maybe that will ease the shame he feels after he done made that manly confession.

    If there’s a God we’ll be hookin up soon, yessir.

    By Workinggayboy on Jan 2, 2022

  33. Exactly, Frederick. I saw Dylan in 2019 and it was as riveting as I’ve seen him. Stunning versions, especially of “Lenny Bruce” and “Not Dark Yet.”

    By Mark on Jan 2, 2022

  34. My parents took me and my older brother to see Mr Dylan in 1986 , when he was touring with Tom Petty and the heartbreakers . I was only about 5 at the time . I never cared much for Dylan , but loved Tom Petty . The fact that Bob Dylan has a big penis and Tom supposedly had a tiny one is so ironic and frustrating to me . I used to have wet fanticies about tom , and found Dylan ugly and gross . It’s almost as if I wish that they could have traded penises.Tom should have had the big one .

    By Dee Dee Longley on Jan 2, 2022

  35. Bob has a hoagie in his trousers I hear .Big

    By ELU on Jan 2, 2022

  36. Hey Pat Grooms, It is 1975 isn’t it ?

    By Jocko P on Jan 2, 2022

  37. Workingman, who is ”May He” ?? Some Chinese ”geezer” (as Pat Grooms puts it ??

    By Jocko P on Jan 2, 2022

  38. @JockoP, He is the good Lord God Almighty. Keep yourself with Him on the path of righteousness rather than with the likes of Pat Grooms on the Hershey Highway to Hell.

    By Workingman on Jan 2, 2022

  39. Didn’t take long for the cretinous morons to spew their mindless, bigoted bullshit. Way to start the new year off. Hopefully Covid pays them a visit. Soon.

    By Heartlands Patriot on Jan 3, 2022

  45. DD. It’s apparent even to deaf, dumb and blind people that you’re assholes. Why not do a favor for the people who follow this blog for the music and find some other place to prove you’re a bunch assholes? Probably no other place will let you comment. Pretty fucking sad.

    By Mike on Jan 3, 2022

  46. You would think a new year is upon us and we still have idiotic lowlife trolls like DD polluting this site.His kind need to be dipped in cowshit and then covred up to his neck in sand. let nature do the rest.
