Magnetic Movements On-Line 

It’s the start of July and another UK Tour just finished, saw quite a few shows, and I am glad to say so did the tapers by the look of things. Some films already in from the recent shows and, hopefully a lot more to follow. But first there are a few stragglers to gather up.


 

Magnetic Movements

D3  A7  S8  H8  F 8  I  BC3

15-07-1988      INDIANAPOLIS                                                                                     90.00

Subterranean Homesick Blues (s) / Just Like A Woman / John Brown / Masters Of War / Tangled Up In Blue / Stuck Inside Of Mobile / It Ain’t Me Babe / Trail Of The Buffalo / Don’t Think Twice / I Shall Be released / Silvio / Like A Rolling Stone / The Times They Are A-Changin / All Along The Watchtower 

Get to see this. No it’s not very close, but it is steady and clear, and an amazing sight to see. The whole band just strut the stage constantly. If you want to be reminded of how animated he could be, look no further.

D5  A7  S8  H8  F 7  I  BC6

20-07-1989      ATLANTIC CITY                                                                                    83.00

Most Likely You’ll Go your Way / Lenny Bruce/John Brown / I Want You / You’re a Big Girl Now / Highway 61 Revisited / Mama You Bin On My Mind @ / Its Alright Ma @ / Boots Of Spanish Leather @ / Silvio / Leopardskin Pillbox Hat / Legend In My Time / In the Garden / Like A Rolling Stone / It Ain’t Me Babe / Maggie’s Farm 

Back in ’89 again, and once more we get treated to a very lively Bob. We also get the rather unusual “Legend” which sounds pretty autobiographical these days.  This film is a bit too dark really, but still worthy of your attention.

D3  A7  S7  H7  F7  I BR3

28-10-1990      ATHENS, GEORGIA                                                                              89.00

Silvio / Simple  Twist Of  Fate / What Was It you Wanted / Gotta Serve Somebody / Tomorrow Is A Long Time / Highway 61 Revisited/ Ballad Of Hollis Brown @ / Gates Of Eden  @ / Mr Tambourine Man @ / It Ain’t Me Babe @ / Joey (e) / I Want You (s) / TV Talking Song / Maggies Farm / I Shall Be Released / Like A Rolling Stone / Blowin In The Wind @ / All Along the Watchtower 

Odd one this, odd because despite it being slightly out of focus, and Dylan in bumbling mood, and the band are not too tight, I rather like it! There is a warmth to the performance. It captures the encores well with the audience at the bottom of the screen leaping about as the group strut about. Bob was cooling by the end of 90, and this shows here, but it’s till entertaining.

PRO TV

00-03-04          Tribute To The Apollo                                                                            6.00

A Change Is Gonna Come

This is pretty hot stuff, lovely intimate filming from this new TV appearance. Almost essential stuff this. Whilst a nice authored copy is about it’s still only from VHS so I am hoping we will see a direct digital copy yet.

PRO  TV

05-05-04          Wiltern Theatre, LA                                                                               5.00

You Win Again

This arrived on the same disc as the Apollo track, so the same aspirations on quality apply. Not so performance sadly. Oh, this is “OK” but no more I fear, at times they seem uncertain who should be taking lead vocal. I do hope the upcoming tour produces better results.

D6  A8  S7  H8  F8  I BL4

18-05-2004      ARENA,  CARDIFF                                                                                55.00

Highway 61 Revisited / Shooting Star / Stuck Inside Of Mobile (b) / Honest With Me / It Ain’t Me Babe / Summer Days / Cat’s In the Well / Like A Rolling Stone / All Along The Watchtower

Sadly incomplete, this was certainly not one of the best of the UK shows though here it does come over pretty well. Certainly less light than previous years has taken a toll on the picture quality a little also.

D3  A8  S7  H7  F8  I SR

20-06-2004      FLEADH FESTIVAL, LONDON                                                             55.00

Down Along The Cove (b) / It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue (i) / Lonesome Bedroom Blues (i) / Maggies Farm (i) / Desolation Row (f) / Seeing The Real You At Last (i) / Positively Fourth Street / Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee / High Water (i) / Highway 61 Revisited (f) / Not Dark Yet (i) / Homest With me (i) / Summer Days (F) / Like A Rolling Stone

Approach with caution ! Shot from various positions as the intrepid filmer tries for the elusive clear view. It has some nice moments, but not many.  A pity as for outdoor gigs this was a pretty good show. And of course we had Ron Wood clowning about throughout the show.

D6  A7  S7  H8  F7  I BR3

22-06-2004      METRO ARENA, NEWCASTLE                                                              99.00

Seeing the Real You At last (f) / Tell Me That It Isn’t True / Lonesome Day Blues / Under The Red Sky / Cold Irons Bound / Ring Them Bells / Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee / This Wheels On Fire / Highway 61 Revisited / Hattie Carroll / Bye & Bye / Honest With me / Masters Of War / Summer Days / If Not For You / Like A Rolling Stone / All Along the Watchtower

Now this is certainly a bit more like it. Pretty much the whole show and generally clear and mostly steady view. The light again alas could be better but all aside it’s a pleasant view, and of course a fairly well rounded setlist/performance.

D6  A8  S8  H8  F7  I BR4

23-06-2004      S.E.C.C.  GLASGOW                                                                          104.00

Wicked Messenger / Times They Are A-Changin / Cry A While (f) / Trying To Get To Heaven / It’s Alright Ma / Stuck Inside Of Mobile / Man In the Long Black Coat / Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee / Boots Of Spanish Leather / I Don’t Believe You / Forever Young (s) / Honest With Me / Every Grain Of Sand / Summer Days / Don’t Think Twice. Its Alright / Like A Rolling Stone / All Along The Watchtower

Possible the best of this bunch, nice performance and pretty clear, steady view. A bit more light would have helped. But Bob looks like he was enjoying himself anyway.


 

Magnetic Movements  

D8 A8 S7 H7 F8 I SR

24-06-2004      BARROWLAND, GLASGOW                                                                 28.00

Just like A Woman (i) / Girl Of the North Country / It Ain’t Me Babe / I Believe In You / Don’t Think Twice, Its Alright / All Along the Watchtower (f)

This was going to be THE show right? Well it was certainly a good performance with some great singalongs, but not the most unusual setlist. Anyway this guy is standing pretty near Bob, and what we get is pretty nice, if rather short. But certainly one to look out for.
