Review by John Pruski

I really liked the way the band (only) started Leopard Skin, with Bob ambling out to great applause about half a minute later. Being a general admission show, most of us crowded down into the hot, steamy, and closely-packed front, from where, when Bob played harp, I could see clearly his huge diamond ring on his wedding-ring-finger. For me the concert peaked during Chimes and the immediately following Till I Fell In Love With You, which featured some great unison guitar-organ riffs. During Till I Fell I found myself think of Spoonful, so similar was a phrasing or two and so get-down was the arrangement. Till I Fell was truly another highlight, something akin to a Dr. John show-stopping version of Wang Dang Doodle.

Review by Jerry Willis
Thanks Bob. Anyway...other highlights included a great, albeit almost unrecognizable, It's All Right Ma. Just Like A Women was delivered with a '50's torch balled feel and is my favorite version that I've seen. Thunder On The Mountain closed the main set and boy did it rock. The ending was fantastic. They were jamming, and I mean *jamming, *when on Bob's cue they just stopped dead in their tracks. Bob gave the audience a rye smile and they ended with the little crescendo like on the album. The crown went nuts. Bob was in a great mood and was very animated throughout the show. My poor wife, who I've dragged to so many Dylan concerts proved what a Dylan veteran she is. She turned to me and said, "He's smiling a lot tonight!" My only complaints, Girl From The North Country was so re-worked that it was almost unrecognizable. I totally understand re-tooling songs but to change it so much that the melody has to be altered...might as well just write new lyrics and then you've got a new song. The encores, LARS and Watchtower, were pretty pedestrian in there delivery. I might be good to change these up once and a while Bob.

Review by Jack
Every song was really a highlight, but by the time the band was finishing up “Summer Days” they'd reached an incredible peak that I’m not even sure was matched during the Cambell/Sexton band era. And then they kicked into “Thin Man”. As far as I’ve seen that’s the only time he’s played that on this tour- we’ll never know what made him pull it out to end the set last night but it was one of the single greatest Dylan performances I’ve ever witnessed or heard.

Review by Mike Mahoney
I'm not gonna go thru every song, but I wanted to bring this up. Shelter From the Storm. I saw this in New England last summer. I thought it sucked. It sounded like an old crooner's love song from the 1950's. What I heard--I now realize---was a song in the re-making. Tonight's 'Shelter' was wonderful! He has turned the BOT account which is almost a blow by blow of a love affair gone by---into a sad, sad remorseful account of a love slipped through his fingers. The line 'Suddenly I turned around..." was a pleading, mournful cry. The song is a heartbreaker. Perhaps one of the most emotional versions of a Bob Dylan song I've EVER HEARD (35-40 shows) It was brilliant!

Review by Stephen Darjeeling
There was a strange situation with the stage setup and Bob could possibly have billed this one as Bob Dylan and the Stranger, the Stranger being Stu Kimball. Picture the stage as a rectangle with Denny Freeman, Tony Garnier, George Recile, and Donny Herron on the back side with Bob in front of Donny, the six of them in a relatively tight grouping. Now picture Stu up front in the corner, stage left, by himself several feet away from Bob. His monitors are turned toward him and away from the rest of the band. He is playing rhythm guitar all night, watching Donny take nearly all of the leads and rarely getting the nod from Bob. At one point my rider, an astute musician in her own right, says to me, “Somebody is seriously out of tune.” Stu is then seen furiously trying to tune his guitar, stomping on the foot control and shutting down twice before literally throwing the guitar into the rack and grabbing another. He was obviously distressed. Was this a setup, could he have picked up the wrong guitar? Who knows, but I will venture to make a bet that he does not finish this current tour with the band. The weird thing was that he was so very out of tune but nobody in the band, Bob included, acknowledged the fact..

Review by Cortney Mc Key
 At this point another prominent lighting change occurred. The backdrop had what looked like a bunch of blue stars shown on the curtain as the rest was pretty much black, thus it was like the night. I was like, alright, he is going to play "Shooting Star." Actually, though it turned out to be "Lay, Lady, Lay." One of my favorite songs, it is simplistic, easy to follow, and heartfelt. I guess I have high standards for this song because the "Nashville Skyline" version blows me away every time and the "Hard Rain" version with alternate lyrics has to be one of his "sexiest songs." Though this night it was not either of those, smooth or sexy, it truly measured up to everything a good song is. The couple next to me (married in 1967) finally stood up from their seats and started to dance, actually most of the place stood up for this one. I suppose a lot of the older people recognized it and found it sweet, which lets face it, it is.

Review by Anne Marvin
 Amazingly, from this vantage I could actually understand the quickly-mumbled words emanating from the master's lips. With the Stetson crammed down on his greying curls, skinny face a mass of dainty wrinkles, sweat dripping from his forehead onto the mike, he leaned down over that keyboard and played and sang with a wrenching intensity that had us all sighing and swooning. Then in the middle of "Positively 4th Street," I plainly heard him sing "if just one time you could stand inside my shoe----not just one of them, but both of them. . .". Did I really hear that? Well, yes, I must have, because he grinned a barely visible little grin to himself and he and the band seamlessly patched in a few measures and played back around to where he could try that line again. In that very moment lay the essence of his charm--that those fine songs, even the reverently-worshipped classics, are alive and evolving and can take an unexpected turn at any time, and that this clever, cranky-looking man can laugh at and play with his own mis-speakings. He's a sphinx all right, but a darned funny one. And, oh, can that band play!.

Review by Matt Fulco
?The opening notes of "Absolutely Sweet Marie" hit my ears. Granted, this was not the "Not Fade Away" that blew me away as the opener in Hartford last April, but it was the best version of this song I have heard in concert. Dylan and his band were tight, and he crooned the lyrics wryly, singing them with a newfound subtelty. Next was "Senor", exploring a theme Dylan would follow up on throughout the night, one humorous and or sarcastic song, followed by something decidedly more apocalyptic. Ice-like chills traveled through me as he delivered the line "Can you tell me where I'm headin', Lincoln County or Armageddon?" I expected to hear "Cold Irons Bound" in the third slot, but instead we got "Can't Wait." Powerfully delivered, this tune is continuing to evolve. Bob sang the lyrics more precisely and more convincingly than in Columbus last November. After "Can't Wait" came the first of several highlights, "Simple Twist of Fate." Bob and his band came close to perfection with this song. Dylan sang it beautifully, softly delivering the line "And wished that he'd gone strayyyyyt..." He gave it new meaning. It shared the eloquence of the album version, but Bob sang it in a sadder and more reflective manner, which was greatly aided by Bucky Baxter's phenominal work on the pedal steel.??
