Hi Again

The films are still coming in pretty fast though and I am already aware of quite a few we have yet to see. The advent of VCD’s is well upon us now. All these are available as vcd’s. Hopefully this will result in better quality copies circulating.

Unfortunately not everyone is making the effort to transfer their recordings to vcd in best quality, a practice I hope will cease. If you are going to do this please try to do it right guys.

Now let’s see…….

D3 A7 S7 H8 F8 I BL4 (No 0012)
24-02-02 AUSTIN, TEXAS 123.00

Duncan & Brady @ / Boots Of Spanish Leather @ / Its Alright Ma @ / Searching For A Soldiers Grave @ / Maggies Farm / I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight / Lonesome Day Blues / Lay, Lady Lay / High Water / Visions Of Johanna @ / One Too Many Mornings @ / Tangled Up In Blue / Summer Days / Sugar Baby / The Wicked Messenger / Rainy Day Women //// Like A Rolling Stone / Honest With Me / Blowin In The Wind @ / All Along The Watchtower

Not the best film to arrive but quite watchable and good sound. As you can see not so close and The taper seems to be at angle also, but I have not seen many from this period, I’d see it if You get the chance. (He was in better voice back then too)

The Tour was drawing to its close here and Dylan seems more relaxed at these two shows. Pity the sets were cut shorter, presumably because he started later, though starting the encores with “Stone” is a much better idea, and here it is captured very well. Very nice films of most of the show, for once the starting tracks are caught well too (pity it wasn’t Senor or Big Girl) and Dylan seems to get some atmosphere into this soulless barn of a venue.

D2-5 A8 S8 H8 F9 I BL2 (No 0009)
11-05-02 DOCKLANDS, LONDON 62.00

A second film from this date, of the first part of the show. This is quite sharp and mostly clear if a bit distant at times, the taper can get to about knees up but often films further back than that. It does compliment the longer film well, catching several tracks that the previous film did not get well.

12-05-02 DOCKLANDS, LONDON 129.00

I Am The Man Thomas @ / To Ramona @ / Its Alright Ma @ / If You See Her Say Hello @ / Stuck Inside Of Mobile / Moonlight / Subterranean Homesick Blues / Cry A While / Mama You Bin On My Mind @ / Hard Rain @ / Forever Young @ / Summer Days / Sugar Baby / The Wicked Messenger / Rainy Day Women //// Like A Rolling Stone / Honest With Me / Knockin On Heavens Door @ / All Along The Watchtower

This is really quite a nice film, a lot of the time it is actually not as close more like D3 as the taper pulls back a lot. It’s a nice sharp film though, and a very worthwhile companion to the previous one listed though here we do get the entire concert,. An edit of the two together would produce a very good document of the show. Dylan looks lively and of course even had a new hat in honour of the last show.

12-05-02 DOCKLANDS, LONDON 119.00

I Am The Man Thomas @ / To Ramona @ / Its Alright Ma @ / If You See Her Say Hello @ / Stuck Inside Of Mobile / Moonlight / Subterranean Homesick Blues / Cry A While / Mama You Bin On My Mind @ / Hard Rain @ / Forever Young@ / Summer Days / Sugar Baby / The Wicked Messenger / Rainy Day Women //// Like A Rolling Stone / Honest With Me / Knockin On Heavens Door @ / All Along The Watchtower

The last night was not what I had hoped for, I imagine for this taper it was a welcome end ! He seems to be waaaaaaaaaay back here but gets close by zooming, though this means the picture isn’t as sharp as some of his films. Again the sound is great though. A good view with the encore very very steady indeed. An yes that curious “If You See Her” is captured well here. To the best of my knowledge this is only the second time that one taper has produced video footage from every UK show. So stand up an take a bow! (well maybe not).

D6 A8 S8 H8 F8 I SR2 (No 0011)
12-05-02 DOCKLANDS, LONDON 123.00

I Am The Man Thomas @ / To Ramona @ / Its Alright Ma @ / If You See Her Say Hello @ / Stuck Inside Of Mobile / Moonlight / Subterranean Homesick Blues / Cry A While / Mama You Bin On My Mind @ / Hard Rain @ / Forever Young @ / Summer Days / Sugar Baby / The Wicked Messenger / Rainy Day Women //// Like A Rolling Stone / Honest With Me / Knockin On Heavens Door @ / All Along The Watchtower

Currently only available as VCD, this is a much clearer view of the show and shows Bob and His merry men to be less than merry. He looks quite low if anything throughout the film. As the taper is to he extreme of the stage there are occasionally cables visible on the left of the screen though they seldom get in the front of Bob.

Till Next Time
