Magnetic Movements On-Line 

Hello again

Brand new start time again. After a little deliberation I am attempting to link our Dvds with the Excellent Dvdylan.com site. You will find that my “new” index numbers co-incide with those used by Vygi on his site. So if you require more information on a video go there and look it up. You will soon see that Vygi lists things that I do not. This is not because I don’t get to see them but because they have already been circulating previously as videotapes. Vygi also lists alternate versions of some discs so things may appear twice, and whilst this is perfectly acceptable as the new medium enlarges, it does not fit the criteria for MM.

So, Here without delay are this month's offerings.

23-06-04          TV  Reports on Dylan's Doctorate from St Andrews                        7.00

Three short clips in which we get to see our Man get his Doctorate. Interestingly Scottish BBC make it clear that whilst they were not permitted to film they got this footage from someone who filmed it from the crowd!  Can this be true. Does BBC now stand for “best bootleg cover” now?? Extraordinary! Which is more than can be said of Dylan's contribution. Though the choir singing “Blowin In The Wind” is a pleasant touch.

20-06-04          FLEADH FESTIVAL, LONDON                 (D399)                                91.00

Down Along The Cove / Its All Over Now Baby Blue / Lonesome Day Blues / Maggies Farm / Desolation Row / Seeing the Real You At Last / Positively Fourth Street / Tweedle Dum & Tweedle Dee / High Water / Highway 61 Revisited / Not Dark Yet / Honest With Me / Boots Of Spanish Leather

No you are not mistaken, the next two films ARE different but shot from very similar positions. This one is probably the best of the two, slightly steadier and clearer and certainly the closest so far. Sadly of course it suffers from the inevitable heads, bumps and voices that you get at these open air events.

24-06-04          BARROWLAND,  GLASGOW                                                                 76.00

I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight (i) / Drifters Escape (i) / Just Like A Woman / Its alright Ma (i) / Girl Of The North Country / Most Likely You’ll Go Your Way / Ballad Of A Thin Man / Floater (s) / It Ain’t Me Babe / I Believe In You / Don’t Think Twice / Like A Rolling Stone / All Along The Watchtower

Great to get a longer film from this outstanding gig. This one though suffers from much more obscuring and not as steady as the shorter film.  Though it is worth a look, especially as it circulates with the TV footage on the same DVD.
