From: (DocREH) Subject: Dylan 9/23/95 setlist Date: 24 Sep 1995 22:09:44 -0400 Although I wasn't there a friend asked me to post this setlist on this newsgroup for him. So here goes ----- The Edge, Fort Lauderdale - 9/23/95 I'm Real Gone (not sure about the name of this one, might be new?) Friend of the Devil Maggie's Farm It's Too Late Silvio Confidential (a) Willin' (a) Lucky Old Sun (a) West L.A. Fadeaway When I Paint My Masterpiece Key to the Highway ---- Encores: Tangled Up in Blue (a) With God On Our Side (a) Highway 61 A very strong 90-minute set. Dylan and the band seemed to really enjoy them- selves. Dylan was cracking many a smile, especially during Key to the Highway. I think a very strong tour is in store. About 400-500 people were at the free show. See you at Sunrise Thurs. and Fri. night.
From: (Christine Consolvo) Newsgroups: Subject: comments on open rehearsal.. Date: Mon, 25 Sep 1995 03:17:18 GMT Well, no, as you've heard, it was no Toad's Place. It will do very nicely nonetheless. Quite an experience. First, I've got to tell you about the club it was held in--The Edge. Very different. Can't say when it was built or for what purpose. Some one said (Rich?), but I can't remember. Some kind of club from the 50's (?) with lots of bars, brick patios and it used to have a pool which is now filled with concrete. It was two-story with balcony/deck all around. Many, many windows and windowed doors which have since been, I assume, vandalized, then replaced with plyboard painted black. When the taxi let me off there, I thought it must be the wrong place. It looked as if it hadn't been open for any type of business in many years. The name-The Edge-was nowhere to be found. In a very seedy part of town where everyone either appeared homeless or was driving limited edition Mercedes. I had many moments of uneasiness as I waited 5 1/2 hours for the doors to open. Anyway, the doors did finally open. I was the first inside and had two choices of vantage point. Either in the "pit" right in front of the stage-just standing room, no chairs or tables-or on the sides which were raised and you would probably be able to see a bit better, but would be farther away. I chose the pit. At about 9:20 Bob hit the stage and opened with Real, Real Gone. What a great choice! Everyone was blown away immediately. I won't comment on every song, but will mostly make more general comments on my perceptions. He seemed to be in one of his animated, almost jovial moods. This is relatively speaking, of course. As it went on it seemed to be a kind of tribute to Jerry Garcia as you can see from the setlist Bill posted. Maggie's Farm seemed (to me) to be about the same tempo as recent renditions, yet it was completely different. Can't quite put my finger on it. I'll leave that to others. Silvio was just as they've been doing it, but I think it was included as part of the tribute I mentioned. Was it my imagination or did he get a very strange, pained look on his face as he sang "Silvio, silver & gold won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold. Silvio, I gotta go find out something only dead men know"? Every acoustic number was sung with indescribable sweetness and light. Heartbreaking and heart mending all at once. Facial expressions, especially of his mouth/lips were almost exaggerated...and precious. Confidential To did he pick this? Did he know what it would do to us? Hopefully I didn't stand watching with my mouth hanging open... J. J. was once again left to play mostly rhythm. On the acoustic Tangled there appeared to be a definite Garcia influence in his guitar playing. Sounded great! And the vocals...she froze up insiiiiiide! He also really ripped it up in an extended ending to Key to the Highway. The two last songs he played, With God On Our Side & Highway 61, sounded like quintessential versions to these ears. Unbelievable. It all ended much too quickly, yet there were very few complaints. We knew we'd seen some things that may not be seen again. If it could only have gone on forever... Just thought I'd mention it... Christine
