BOB DYLAN
Atlantic City 2007 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Event Center, Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa, Atlantic City, New Jersey; June 22, 2007. Very good audience recording.

I received this two-CD set from one of my fellow music fans. It arrived without cover artwork, though it had a tracklist. - Philip Cohen

From September 3, 2010 to the end of January 2011, 40 acrylic paintings by Bob Dylan - some of which have never been shown to the public - will be on exhibition at Denmark’s National Gallery in Copenhagen. While for Dylan, the paintings and the music are of two different worlds, to paraphase curator Kasper Monrad, Dylan had mentioned that he wouldn’t have done a painting if he could have expressed whatever he was feeling in a song.

Even if all the paintings were all sold, Dylan may want to consider not giving up his day job. After all, his words and his music are his gifts, even if his vocals are no longer what they used to be.

In a review of the show at boblinks.com, Brian J.  Slattery wrote: “Bob was center stage, playing a guitar… and he was making up new lyrics to Cat’s in the Well, and the crowd was cheering, and people were laughing, and Bob seemed to be smiling, and the band was with it, and a new leg of the Never Ending Tour had begun. What came next was a mix of set list standards and a few songs that appear less frequently in recent years, but more important than the set list was  the power behind the delivery of each song. Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right followed Cat’s in the Well and kept most of the crowd on its feet throughout. I saw Think Twice in New York City this past fall and thought it was one of the best versions I’d ever heard.

“Tonight, Bob ended the set with Blowin’ in the Wind, which I thought was a beautiful rendition of a song as powerful today as it was when he penned it all those years ago. And maybe it is just my reading into its use to end the set, but it seems Bob is making a point with this song. They didn’t even put the lights up to show Bob and the boys walking off the stage. The song ended, and they left the stage  in darkness. I don’t know if this is to add to the solemnity of the song or not.”

Thanks to Phil for sharing the tracks.

Thanks also to Lewis and stewART for the artwork, which was posted at dylanstubs.com. While the artwork listed the show as an “M & A recording”, we have opted to remove this line in the absence of a proper lineage of this recording.

Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.

These tracks are no longer available for download.

  5. There is so much on Bob, where to start ? Just like wine, there are vintages of Bob that are both sweet and satisfying. Others that are gritty and strong. This one has nice flavor and a story to boot. In addition, thanks to those who supplied the Y2K Crystal Cat CD boots with some of the world’s most incredible field recordings of Bob. Peace.
