Bob Links




Review by Anders Tidström

Bob is Bob. You never know in advance and for sure how the show will turn out. You just know it´s going to be good, great or excellent . I then refer to a nice bunch of concerts since I first saw Bob (Stockholm 1966). And … Helsinki was great … sometimes even excellent. My favorite opener, Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat, was a take off into the promising night. Could anybody resist a smile when the story about that damn hat rocks again. Lay, Lady, Lay - wow! And Visions of Johanna after a while - "I´m only sighing" of good feelings. The Levee´s Gonna Break, later on, speeded and breathtaking as you never heard it. Surprising but really more surprising if things suddenly were set, paved and fixed on a Dylan show. Watching The River Flow, Every Grain Of Sand and It´s Alright, Ma (I´m Only Bleeding) is poetry which could melt hearts of steel. Summer Days then, the swinging piece swinging like it never was played before - crowd pleaser of high altitude.

Review by Delta Dave

Boots Of Spanish Leather was also re-arranged and I think it was the highlight of the show. The song sounded very fresh and new and Bob sang it very clearly and lively and didn't forget the little humour of the song. Absolutely beautiful. Oh, and then there was Every Grain Of Sand too, another highlight! Piano was really at the right place on that one. Mr.Tambourine Man sounded very inspired too. Bob did his best to bluff the band on chord changes by singing the lines as back as he could... I couldn't hold back my laugh and it looked like it was hard also to Bob and the band... Rolling Stone was also ultra-relaxed... right after the first verse it looked like it would be the solo or something without any soloing but then suddenly Bob got back to the second verse.

Review by William Moore

All credit to Mr Dylan - too often big-name artists have come here without knowing much more than that it's Tuesday and this isn't London, but he will have won a good many friends on the strength of last night's appearance. He may not flagrantly woo his audiences like a Tom Jones or invite people to "singalongaBob", but he wins them over just the same, and even if you aren't a devotee it's awful hard to fault his commitment to the music, or his contribution to late 20th century culture. Now if he'd only gone and played Forever Young and Watchtower, too...

Review by Jan Semneby
He gave us a nice and tender Girl of the north country, an excellent Senor where I finally got to hear Larry play the violin, a Just like a woman which was even better than in Lund with Bob hammering on his guitar to underline the frustrations of his lost love and some terrific phrasing on Stuck inside of Mobile. After hearing Forever young twice at the previous shows it was also a treat to have Knocking on heavens door in the encores with beautiful interactive singing between Bob and Larry/Charlie. A brilliant show and with some relaxing sightseeing in Helsinki the day efter and a nice ferry trip home to arrive on thursday morning in time to the Stockholm show I would say that this was a highlight in my Bobwatching travelling during the last thirteen years.
