March  2003

Quite  a slew of new material this time in view of the many months of relative inactivity. Again all available as DVD’s these recordings benefit from not only being closer to master, but also in that they do not have to be transferred. All the following films have been taken from the “piano” tour of last November. But as DVD’s can be multi region  these have the benefit of not having to be transferred, I guess this will mean more variety and better quality, both of which are good things.  Unfortunately this advance in technology has one drawback. The process I use to capture pictures will not capture NTSC in colour, SO despite that fact that most of these pix here are black and white, I do assure you that ALL the DVD’s actually play in colour.

So with no further ado…

13-08-02          KANATA, ONTARIO                                                                      125.00

Somebody Touched Me@ / My Back Pages@ / Tangled Up In Blue@ / Don’t Think Twicec@ / Til I Fell In Love With You / Most Likely You’ll Go Your Way / Floater / High Water / Masters Of War / Visions Of Johanna / I Shall  Be Released / Summer Days / Like A Rolling Stone / Cold Irons Bound / Rainy Day Women // Honest With Me / Blowin In The Wind / All Along The Watchtower 

Nice set list, and pretty well played too. The video could be better however, Its reasonably steady but due to the distance involved doesn’t often get interestingly close. Also the features can be “bleached” by over exposure at times, shame it’s not better.

11-11-02          Madison Square Gardens NYC                                                    124.00                                   

Tweedle Dee And Tweedle Dum / Yeah Heavy And A Bottle Of Bread / Tombstone Blues / The End Of Innocence / Things Have Changed / Brown Sugar (Jagger / Richards) / Masters Of War / It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) / Just Like A Woman / Drifter's Escape / Shelter From The Storm / Old Man (Neil Young) / Honest With Me / The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll / High Water (For Charley Patton) / Mutineer (Warren Zevon) / Bye And Bye / Summer Days //// Knockin' On Heaven's Door / All Along The Watchtower 

A worthwhile  film to start with certainly, getting “Yeah Heavy” is quite a nice bonus The film has been shot fro different angles and then edited together. Neither give us a closer up I would like but it does make things a little more interesting.

Maggie's Farm / In The Summertime / Tombstone Blues / The End Of Innocence (Don Henly)/

Not so good as the previous few. The taper seems to be at the limit of his zoom and when he zooms in the picture is a  little fuzzy.

17-11-02          Civic Center Coliseum HARTFORD, CONN                                     132.00

This good be closer but the taper tends to keep pulling back. It is also the only one of this batch taken from VCD so picture resolution is possible not all it can be.

21-11-02          First Union Center, WILKES  BARRE                                                130.00

Maggie's Farm / I'll Remember You / Highway 61 Revisited / Accidentally Like A Martyr (Warren Zevon) / Things Have Changed / Brown Sugar (Jagger / Richards) / Never Gonna Be The Same Again / It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) / Girl Of The North Country / Cold Irons Bound /

Shelter From The Storm / Old Man (Neil Young) / Honest With Me / Just Like A Woman / High Water (For Charley Patton) / Mutineer (Warren Zevon) / Bye And Bye / Summer Days ///// Blowin' In The Wind / All Along The Watchtower 

Not a bad film, certainly not  a bad gig, but sadly the sound is a little muddy here, and that tends to turn this from a pleasure to a  bit of a trial. See it, but don’t buy it. 

Till Next Time
