Hi Again

The UK tour is feature heavily again here. In fact its ALL UK shows again. Traditionally now the UK shows are usually well presented, it is a shame that the tapers seem to be very much on the decline these days. After this years hassles though it is not hard to see why. But enough of this prattle let’s take a look at what we have on view this month.

This first item is another “First “ I believe. With digital gear as hot as it is these days most of us are probably aware that excellent still shots can be taken from video recordings. Bearing that in mind it is easy to see how this came about All the films are generally very sharp and often go to head and shoulders, however they are short and virtually all are fragments of songs only. Thankfully the longest section is reserved for the first, Brighton, which is quite fortunate as this seems to be the only UK show that is not circulating completely on video. Pictures from each are included though if you can locate this video it is likely to be as a complete item.

I Am The Man, Thomas @ / If Not For You @ / Its Alright Ma @ / To Ramona @ / Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee / Can’t Wait / Subterranean Homesick Blues / Lonesome Day Blues (e)

Another super film from this very lively show, once again I understand cut short by those ever vigilant security people. Judging by the songs it seems as if security caught everyone within five minutes of each other.

This is most welcome, certainly better than other efforts from this show and pretty much the whole show too. Good use of panning to other people, a nice watchable film worth seeking out.

Hummingbird (s) @ / Times They Are A Changin @ / Its Alright Ma @ / Its All Over Now Baby Blue @ / Solid Rock / Positively Fourth Street / Lonesome Day Blues / Suck Inside Of Mobile (f) / Masters Of War @ / Visions Of Johanna @ / Tangled Up In Blue @ / Moonlight / Summer Days / Wicked Messenger / Rainy Day Women 12 & 35 //// Things Have Changed / Knockin On Heavens door @ / Honest With Me / Blowin In The Wind @

I thought this was one of the best shows, particularly good to see Solid Rock sadly missing from the other film of this show. The taper is at an acute angle and this does result in some cables being in the way. Charlie gets in front of Bob too sometimes (see second pic) but overall this is a fine film and worth seeing.

Love Sick (i) / Forever Young @ / Honest With Me / Blowin In The Wind @

Not sure why this is so short , though the tribulations of the taper can be seen. This was also one of the heaviest shows for security so the taper may well have erred on the side of caution. What you get though is worth a view. Darker than the other films this month, though of course it was at the show also!

All in all a good run this month. As I said before though the volume of films is quite definitely Reducing these days. Quite a few are circulating only as video discs also, which I guess is An inevitable change towards the future. We do need to keep things up to date here though so if any of you know of any films that I have not as yet listed, from any period but especially current, please do let me know.

Till Next Time
