Ask me anything... within reason
"Absolutely Sweet Marie," Bob Dylan, Dubuque Iowa, Nov. 12, 1996. More adorable 90s kids stage-diving, dancing and smooching with Dylan and the band. To live outside the law you must be honest.
"It Ain’t Me, Babe," Bob Dylan. Happy Valentine’s Day! Crazy show in Dubuque, Iowa, where fans get onstage and dance with (or smooch) Dylan throughout the song, Nov. 12, 1996.
"Dear Mrs. Roosevelt" (Woody Guthrie cover), Bob Dylan and The Crackers (The Band) live, January 1968. Happy birthday FDR!
He took office on a crippled leg, and he said to one and all
"You money changin’ racket boys sure ‘nuff got to fall"
Bob Dylan’s 2-hour Christmas show from Theme Time Radio Hour, by popular tradition. The perfect holiday DJ!
Bob Dylan, “I Was Young When I Left Home,” a Minneapolis home recording, Dec. 22, 1961, before the release of his first album. This has got to be the saddest song he ever recorded, and one of his most emotional performances.
Bob Dylan, “Dink’s Song (Fare Thee Well),” 1961 home recording (only released in 2005), the same song which is sung so nicely by Marcus Mumford and Oscar Isaac in “Inside Llewyn Davis.”
(Not to be confused with Dylan’s “Farewell,” also on that soundtrack, a rewrite of “The Leaving Of Liverpool” in which he sings “Oh, it’s fare thee well, my darlin’ true…” — another early-60s recording only recently released.) “Dink’s Song” was first documented by folklorist John Lomax in 1908.
"That Was The President," Phil Ochs, introduced by Bob Dylan (which will be meaningful to anyone knowing their history) on his "Theme Time Radio Hour."
I still can see him smilin’ there and wavin’ at the crowd
As he drove through the music of the band
And never even knowin’ no more time would be allowed
Not for the President and not for the man
