Bob Dylan - The Mystic Garden

2 brilliant shows - Bob Played in Amsterdam on 08th & 9th -!!! Surely this band lacks great guitar players but as turns out now their boss has improved lots on the keyboards and the sologuitar as well. Denny plays something like 2 or 3 solo's and Stu ….. for 2 nights he did nothing but strum the rhytm. Most of the sound is the familiar punkrocking cowboyband but with Bob now doing practically all the interplay on guitar, piano, organ and harmonica, relying heavily on Donnie's steel to fill in empty spaces. Bob is clearly in control of everything, he's the true bandleader and he sings clear and confident throughout the show. Both RollingStones started with a harmonica line in which Bob layed out the tempo for the night for the band to follow. The feel of the first 4 songs on both evenings with Bob on guitar was, let's say StevieRayVaughn-ish-working-for-MCA-like southern bluesrock. This feel returned in the uptempo songs like HW61, River Flow and Mobile. Especially the hardrocking arrangements of It Ain't Me, Tom Thumb (Easter Time song ?) and Alright Ma on the 8th were a pleasure. Alright Ma on the 9th sounded even better than the night before ! To Ramona was a little bit out of place but there were some 'irregular on the setlist' songs that stood out and not only cos of surprise. Red Sky , Chimes Of Freedom (though bits of up-singing) and Ain't Talking were great but nothing beats the Visions Of Johanna of the second evening. A perfect performance in all respects that sent out shivers through the entire hall. I am certain not a word was spoken by anybody through this song.
