Bob Links

Review by Lara Souter

It was a solid show, the band was tight and smoking as always; the sound was excellent.    Vocally, Bob was strong.     Dylan really never does anything the same way twice, and sometimes the permutations become almost bizarre. Two old standards,  "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" and "Tangled Up in Blue" were  almost unrecognizable.  I quite enjoyed them, and was amazed that they could stray so far from the original conception, almost as if Dylan was an interpreter of someone else's work.  Bob also moved out from the keyboard to play harp stage central a number of times.   Local guitar hero, Paul James, who has sat in with Bob before, played with Bob on the first five songs, while the regular players sat out, and did a fine job.  Some highlights for me were "Man In The Long Black Coat " and "Simple Twist of Fate" - where for a couple of verses, Bob's voice sounded beautiful and plaintive.  Most of the rest of the night he was busy re-phrasing everything to keep it fresh.   We had 11th row floor seats, on the right side, so could see Dylan playing the keys clearly.  The keyboard parts are really interesting, and Bob's playing is becoming  central to the arrangements.   His playing is typically in counterpoint to the band, going in the opposite direction,  --  hard to describe, but grounds things nicely
