Magnetic Movements On-Line 

Hello and welcome

Here we are again, another fine batch of DVDs plopped  on the mat this past month, which we’ll look at in a moment. Once again you can view the forthcoming ones in brief at http://dvdylan.com where Vygi strives to  keep as full a  list of available DVDs as he can.  It is not the remit of my column to attempt to list every new compilation, merely each new recording that appears. So keep an eye on Vygi’s website if you want more comprehensive details on variations in titles. 

If you have any news / copies of films that have not been listed please don’t be shy, tell me, or Vygi about them! 

But now lets get on with the show.

D7  A8  S7  H7 F8  I SC

BURLINGTON, VERMONT     11 October  1994                                                          103.00

Jokerman / If Not For You / All Along The Watchtower / I Don't Believe You / Tangled Up In Blue / Man In The Long Black Coat / Mama, You Been On My Mind / Gates Of Eden / Don't Think Twice, It's All Right / God Knows / She Belongs To Me / Maggie's Farm ///// What Good Am I? / My Back Pages

Not sure why this has taken so long to arrive, but it is certainly worthwhile watching. The band were tight and  Dylan was certainly more energetic than he is these days. A fair amount of backs of heads though, but a nice atmospheric film anyway.

TORONTO     18 July 2000                                                                                              97.00

Duncan And Brady / Song To Woody / Desolation Row / Love Minus Zero/No Limit / Tangled Up In Blue / This World Can't Stand Long / Country Pie / Lay, Lady, Lay / Gotta Serve Somebody / She Belongs To Me / Drifter's Escape / Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat //// Things Have Changed / Like A Rolling Stone / Don't Think Twice, It's All Right / Highway 61 Revisited / Blowin' In The Wind

Now this is a little too dark for me. Though the show is good and this does represent the entire show, at times unsteady and obscured.

D8  A8  S8  H9  F8  I BL5

ST LOUIS, MISSOURI     March 3, 2004                                                                       62.00

Tombstone Blues / Senor (Tales Of Yankee Power) / Tweedle Dee And Tweedle Dum / Love Minus Zero/No Limit / High Water (For Charley Patton) / Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine) / Tell Me That It Isn't True / Highway 61 Revisited / Girl Of The North Country / Cold Irons Bound / Every Grain Of Sand

This is not actually going round yet, but will shortly. It’s the first film I  have seen with the two drummers. Not that you see that much of them as this is very close on Dylan. A lovely steady and clear view at that. An Bob is smiling and enjoying himself. Missing the set closers and the encores its certainly one to locate as and when you can. By the way I thought the 2 drummers were on each track, but we can clearly see here that Hayward only plays on the faster tracks here.

DESOLATION ROW    by  Roderick Smith                                                                    10.00

A real curiosity this A Puppet presentation of Desolation Row, Mr Smith has very cleverly used the artwork of  16th Century Peter Breugel to underline many of the lines of the song. Its odd, it’s weird, at times  it’s downright funny. But it works. I like it anyway.

ANGELS IN VENICE ADVERT                                                                                           1.00

The already infamous lingerie advert that has Dylan looking cool and seductive. (Well he tries anyway) whilst a few lines of Love Sick plays and a girl in powder blue undies (not a wig) who has mysteriously sprouted wings, walks around and is seductive. 

And finally we have to mention that all of the recent John Green Day 4 was filmed and is available as close, superb sound recordings. They will not be listed here but pictures from them are featured in my piece on the event elsewhere in this issue. Check them out. 

I think I should also mention the recently arrived compilations “Thru The Years Vols 1 & 2”. They contain nothing new but do feature lots of odd tracks in the best quality around right now.


Till Next Time
