From: (Dublin) Newsgroups: Subject: Re: Dec. 7, 1995 - Danbury, Connecticut Date: 8 Dec 1995 10:18:51 -0500 Outstanding show...amont the other alternate selections was "One Too Many Mornings" for "Girl/North Country" during the encore. Bob was actually sociable, and introduced Bucky Baxter this way: "This here is Bucky Baxter. His name wasn't always Bucky Baxter, ya know. When I met him, he told me he didn't have a dime to his name, so I told him to change his name. And he did. To Bucky Baxter." Thios was followed by a "ba-da-bum" rimshot, like the old vaudeville shows. Outstanding versions of "If You See Her" and "Just Like A Woman". Roger Catlin, the Hartford Courant rock critic (and big Dylan fan) called it his "best show since the 1990 marathon at Toad's Place." Since I've seen most of them in this area, I'd have to agree. Catlin also encouraged everyone to hit the highways and follow this short, nine stop tour (dubbed the "Paradise Lost Tour") around the Northeast Patti Smith was outstanding also, playing several new songs, as well as "Not Fade Away" ("for Jerry") and covering Dylan's "Wicked Messenger". "Rock 'n Roll N Word" and "People Have the Power" closed the short set, which was opened with "Dancing Barefoot" (which Patti did throughout the set) and "Because the Night". Unfortunately, the Dylan and Smith didn't appear together. Who knows, maybe tonight in Worcestor? I hope so.....I'll be there.

This was one of the highlights in a night full of highlights: Dylan playing lead on every song, being in great voice, and his great band showing that they might be the band that Dylan has talked of having.

The alternate to Masters of War was John Brown. The alternates to Never Gonna Be The Same were Too Late and Shooting Star. The were a few other songs with alternates but I didn't remember them.

Down in the Flood If You See Her, Say Hello Watchtower!!!!! (solos by James Marshall Dylan) Just Like a Woman Tambourine/Masters/Don't Think 2x (acoustic set) Maggie's Farm Never Gonna Be The Same Again Alabama Getaway Obviously 5 Believers @#$#%$323! UNBELIEVABLE! Girl From The North Country Rainy Day Woman Dylan goes absolutely nuts on lead guitar all night. He was in terrific voice throughout. Although the setlist held no surprises, the intensity of performance of both Dylan and Co. more than made up for it. Two solid hours of a gymnasium!!! Patty Smith opened with a nice 50 minute set. She did a pretty damn fine "Wicked Messenger" to boot. Tom

The on-campus gymnasium--filled with coeds, 10 o'clock scholars, and old-line Bob fans--was transformed into a Sock Hop in Paradise, a musical Elysium vibrating outside the prosaic time-space grid. Rock's hallucinatory fire-poet, Patti Smith, returning to live performing after nearly fifteen years, opened the show with an incandescent set which included an overpowering read of Bob's own "Wicked Messenger," a couple of new songs, a punchy tribute to Jerry Garcia (Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away"), and moments of total abandon. Dylan himself, dressed in black leather pants and silver silk shirt, delivered the kind of show his fans dream about: scorching rock & roll intertwined with heart-searing ballads & love-songs. A highly animated Bob forked over some witty between-the-songs patter (introducing the band's pedal steel guitar player: "he told me he didn't have a penny to his name, so I said, 'you better change your name' & now he's Bucky Baxter) and three encores. Patti and her pal, Michael Stipe, left the backstage area and joined the audience to gaze Bobward and swim in a version of "Mr. Tambourine Man" that stopped the very earth from turning on its axis. At Sunday night's Boston show, Patti joined Bob on-stage for a haunting duet of Bob's "Dark Eyes" (from "Empire Burlesque"). A second Beacon Theatre date has been added, at the last possible second, to the itinerary. It's tonight! (12/11) Remaining dates on the Bob Dylan/Patti Smith Paradise Lost Tour: 12/13 Bethlehem, Pennsylvania Lehigh University 12/14 New York, New York The Beacon Theatre 12/15, 16, 17 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania The Electric Factory
