Hi Again

The flood has slowed to a trickle right now, though I think there are still a few worth viewing. Ironically the vcd front is just exploding these days so there actually is a lot of activity but mostly older things. I will try to round up a list of vcd’s soon if the video front remains quiet. In fact we may have to consider renaming this “Magnetic Movements VCD’s”

Now let’s see…….

D5 A8 S8 H9 F8 I BR5 (No)
08-11-01          TORONTO, ONTARIO                    155.00

Hummingbird @ / Times They Are A-Changin @ / Desolation Row @ / This World @ / Cry Awhile / Just Like A Woman / High Water / Maggies Farm / Hard Rain @ / John Brown @ / Tangled Up In Blue @ / Summer Days / Sugar Babe / Wicked Messenger / Rainy Day Women /// Things Have Changed / Highway 61 Revisited / Like A Rolling Stone / Forever Young @ / Honest With Me / Blowin In The Wind @ / All Along The Watchtower

A nice clear steady film. Close enough to be interesting though this would have been a much better film had it been a little closer. But more than compensated by a lively and imaginative set list with lots of Love & Theft songs for added value. Good to see. At present only around on NTSC but I believe that is soon to change so keep an eye out for this one.

BOB DYLAN
00-00-01          KNOCKIN ON DYLAN’S DOOR         ARTE TV          87.00

All the usual stuff, lots of clips that many will not have seen as good as this but so short as to make them almost useless (eg Dortmund78) pity these things had to be so edited.

D3 A7 S7 H7 F8 I BC3 (No 0016)
01-02-02          SUNRISE, FLORIDA                    79.00

I Am The Man Thomas @ / To Ramona @ / Its Alright Ma @ / Gotta Serve Somebody / Cry Awhile / High Water / Lonesome Day Blues / It Aint Me Babe @ / John Brown @ / Tangled Up In Blue @ / Summer Days / Sugar Babe

Another film currently only around on NTSC. Not for me one of the better shows of this year and certainly whilst a quite watchable film there are so many other closer at present. Worth a look.

D3 A8 S8 H9 F7 BC3 (No 0015)
05-04-02          STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN                    130.00

Hummingbird (b) The Times They Are A-Changin' (b) It's Alright, Ma @ / Don't Think Twice @ / Man Of Constant Sorrow / Lay, Lady, Lay / Solid Rock / Positively 4th Street / Tweedle Dee And Tweedle /Dum / Make You Feel My Love / Maggie's Farm / Summer Days / Sugar Baby / Drifter's Escape / Rainy Day Women Nos. 12 & 35 ///// Things Have Changed / Like A Rolling Stone / Forever Young @ / Honest With Me / Blowin' In The Wind

I find this a slightly frustrating video. It is very steady and clear with good sound and Dylan is in terrific form. Wonderfully animated and much more on form then when he got to us. Sadly the video is not really close enough and the famous hat gets in the way rather too much. But the ending to Maggies Farm, is wild. And all the new songs just leap at you. Get to see it, but hope that someone has shot a closer film!

D3 A7 S8 H8 F7 I BL6 (No 0014)
20-04-02          MILAN, ITALY                    37.00

Rainy Day Women (f) Not Fade Away / Like A Rolling Stone / Knockin On Heavens Door @ / Honest With Me / Blowin In The Wind @ / All Along The Watchtower

Whilst we are talking about frustration, I was so hoping this was the start of the show, but as you can see it’s the end instead. Rather yellow dark film, caused I understand by the houselights staying on and the stage lights largely staying off. Dylan seems animated enough by the encores anyway. Curiosity value 10 concert value 5! Sorry

Till Next Time
