Set List:

Dylan Solo Lead
5. Tombstone Blues - Electric / "Dedicated to" mumble, "I know they're out 
6. Seeing the Real You At Last - Electric 
	Lots of guitar hero "posturing" Bob having fun. Seemed to be 
using the guitar as a prop except for when he was soloing.
7. Mr. Tambourine Man - Acoustic (Dylan singing only with microphone) 
	Excellent harp work, looked a little lost during Bucky's solo.  
Didn't seem to know what to do without a guitar in his hands.
8. Boots of Spanish Leather - Acoustic (Dylan singing only with microphone)
	I've always liked the underlying tension of the venom throughout 
this song, but tonight he sang it very "pretty" until the final verse then the
venom started to
reappear, but the overall song didn't seem as biting to me.
9. Hattie Carrol - Acoustic 
	Perfect song for LA right now, hope Judge Ito had a feed or 
	someone gets him a tape (only somewhat joking!)
10. God Knows - VERY Electric / Very Rocking version / Excellent Lead 
work by Bob.
11. She Belongs To Me - Electric / 
	Kind of a Slow Blues feel till the end, when he	kicked it into 
higher gear. Fantastic lead work by Bob.
12. Obviously 5 Believers - Electric / Excellent version  / True to 

First Encore:

13. Like A Rolling Stone - VERY Electric
	ROCKIN! version.  I saw Winston break at least Four Sticks!!!!
	Dylan sang it like he meant it more than he has in years.

Second Encore:

14. It ain't me babe - Acoustic
	Again, a little "prettier" than I liked, but Bob was in super 
voice tonight.

Third Encore:

15. I Shall Be Released w/ Sheryl Crow - Electric
	Bob and Sheryl did a beautiful job of trading lyrics.  The chorus 
sounding great with the two of them actually harmonizing very well.

Fourth Encore:

16. Rainy Day Woman #12&35 - Electric
	I've never liked this song, but the crowd LOVES it, and the band 
had a great time performing it.

Show Notes:

Bob seemed to be in a great mood.  Looked like he was having a lot of 
fun.  Made a lot of eye contact with those of us in the front rows.  It was
fantastic seeing him in a club this size.  He seemed to be at ease, and I was a
lot closer to the stage than I ever was before.

Bob seemed quite talkative tonight, but I couldn't make out most of what 
was being said. He introduced Tombstone Blues by saying "We dedicate this one to"
then he said something I couldn't make out then "I know they're out there". 
During Band intros, he mentioned that John was from Memphis, and something else
that I missed, then when introducing Winston he said "I don't know anything about
him except" then said something that made Winson hide in his drums and ended with
"But he's so good I kept him anyway".  Then he introduced Bucky as a former mayor
in West Verginia and said something else about him.  

During Seeing the Real You, Bob seemed to be making a lot of Guitar Hero 
type gestures, but wasn't really playing while he did it.  He seemed to be
clowning around for the front row people.  He was definitely having a lot of fun
during this song.  He also played some nice lead lines once he started playing.

The solo mike singing was all excellent and you could tell he was putting 
his heart into those performances, even if it did take the "edge" off his songs

He introduced Sheryl Crow during the Released encore by saying "She just 
wants to sing"!

Well that's about it, the show started about 8:45 and ended around 10:30. 
 The opening band was Glen Glen (rockablily from the 50's), The crowd enjoyed the
performance, but the general concensus after he left stage, seemed to be that he
wasn't needed. An excellent show overall and everyone left satisfied.

See ya.

The thing I wanted to say though was that Bob did FOUR encores! I've only seen Dylan maybe 10 times in my life, but he's never done more than two encores at any performance I've seen. I'm sure somebody knows: Who was the female that sang with him during "I Shall Be Released"? I've heard several guesses...anyone know for sure????

He was smiling, laughing and acting like he was "the happiest man on earth". Everyone was totally in awe and all the extra encores were a major bonus for the lucky ones in attendance. He actually left the stage three times (and came back, of course). Sheryl Crow got a hug and kiss after their duet and was said to have done a great job sharing the stage. Christine Consolvo
