Dylan's back pages - Farm Aid II, with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, July 4, 1986
In 1986, Bob Dylan toured the United States for the first time in five years. It was the joint "True Confessions" tour with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, a traditional rock band Dylan hooked up with at the original Farm Aid in 1985. The Queens of Rhythm - this time Carolyn Dennis, Queen Esther Marrow, Madelyn Quebec, and Louise Bethune - were also there. The appearance help restore Dylan's credibility as a viable live act after the devastatingly bad reviews he received after his misunderstood Live Aid set two months earlier. Farm AId, in fact, was inspired by a comment made by Dylan at Live Aid:
I hope that some of the money...maybe they can just take a little bit of it, maybe...one or two million, maybe...and use it, say, to pay the mortgages on some of the farms and, the farmers here, owe to the banks....
The following year, Dylan, with Petty, the Heartbreakers, and the Queens, toured "Down Under", then, after a break, the United States. The set list format was similar to the track listing of the Before The Flood album, with Dylan performing solo, Dylan backed by Petty and the Heartbreakers, and Petty and the Heartbreakers with two of their own sets.
For the second Farm Aid - which took place in Manor, Texas - Dylan did not appear live, but via satellite, from Buffalo, New York, with the Heartbreakers et al in tow. It was a double bill with the Grateful Dead. Part of the Dead's set was also broadcast at Farm Aid II, as well as three songs by the Heartbreakers, leading into three with Dylan joining Petty and the gang.
Since this was the relatively early days of satellite television transmissions, astute viewers could watch the entire live feed, not just the part that was broadcast on television. Thus it wasn't long before the first two hours of the Dylan/Petty set was in the hands of collectors. The feed ended abruptly after the third - and final - Dylan song was broadcast.
It's a fascinating document, seeing a live concert as it happens, not as a heavily edited and sanitized "rockumentary", like Hard To Handle. Some of the more humorous moments occur once Dylan eventually notices a camera over his shoulder. From that point on, Dylan seemed amused and somewhat bothered by it, and periodically looked directly into the camera.

Bob Dylan adds Oakland, California, concert on August 24, plus Limerick footage
"Tangled Up In Blue", July 4
If you've been one of those following Bob Dylan's late summer U.S. tour dates, you probably noticed a gap between a Nevada gig on Sunday, August 22 and the one in Oregon the following Friday.
Just Like A Woman", Limerick
For some unknown reason, Dylan seems to be taking Mondays off, so it seemed that additional dates on the 24th and 25th would be announced shortly. Well, Bob Dylan's official website had just posted a new show:
August 24: Fox Theater, Oakland, CA On sale: 7/25 10:00am Pre-sale: 7/19 10:00am
Although I have no inside information, it looks likely that another show will be added the following night. Neil Young is scheduled to play there for three nights, so it's not out of the question that Dylan might add a second show at this small venue.
'Isis' updated information on new Bob Dylan 'Bootleg Series', mono box set
Isis magazine has posted updated information on two upcoming Bob Dylan archival releases.
In October, Sony Legacy be releasing The Bootleg Series Vol. 9, and a box set of the first eight Bob Dylan albums in mono. The official announcement is expected to be made next month.
The Bootleg Series will be “a set of non-live recordings, well-known to collectors”. It is based on the "Witmark Demos", but is expected to include some "Leeds Demos" as well. A total of 47 tracks are expected to be included.
The first Bob Dylan eight albums. from Bob Dylan to John Wesley Harding, were originally available in mono. They have never officially been available on compact disc before. Throughout most of the 1960s, more attention had been paid to monaural mixes than stereo. However, but the end of the decade, mono was phased out in favor of stereo. The new CDs were reportedly newly mastered, with "using first issue copies of the mono LPs for reference".

Mellencamp Hits the Road with Dylan, Plans Fall Tour
Bob Dylan and John Mellencamp kicked off their summer tour in Lincoln, Nebraska, yesterday, delivering two sets of spirited Americana nicely suited to Haymarket Park and its Midwestern surroundings. Mellencamp last played the venue as part of a Farm Aid benefit "100 years ago," he joked to the crowd. (The concert, for the record, was actually in 1987.) While his set favored crowd favorites and enduring deep cuts like "Pink Houses" and "Paper In Fire," Mellencamp also brought the crowd into the here-and-now, unveiling songs from his new T Bone Burnett-produced disc No Better Than This. One, "Save Some Time to Dream," was a gorgeously spare, Neil Young-ish country tune featuring tight rhythmic backup from his six-piece band. Meanwhile, Mellencamp reinvigorated classic tunes like "Cherry Bomb," which he freshened with an off-the-cuff a capella arrangement.
Dylan, sporting his trademark black suit and white cowboy hat, had nothing new to play. But he delivered an energetic set of classics, some with striking new arrangements. Soaring pedal steel guitar lent "Lay Lady Lay" a newfound vulnerability, "Just Like a Woman," became soft and reflective, and "Cold Irons Bound" sounded bold and jammy. The latter two showcased Dylan’s inimitable balance of the meditative and aggressive.
Dylan and Mellencamp's tour wraps in September, but Mellencamp will continue on this fall with sixteen Midwestern dates in support of No Better Than This. Unlike his immaculately produced '80s albums, Mellencamp wrote this record quickly, on acoustic guitar, and recorded it in mono on a 55-year-old Ampex tape recorder. "I looked at T Bone and I said, 'What the fuck were we doing in the '80s?'" Mellencamp told RS. "I made a record once that took almost a year. I spent millions of dollars dicking around with songs, and in the long run it paid off because it sold millions of copies. But I go back and I listen to the record today, and it was...more of a craftsman thing."
No Better is Mellencamp’s latest rootsy record in a series that began with 2003's blues and folk covers disc Trouble No More.To get the proper vibe, Mellencamp and Burnett cut the new disc in the legendary Sun Studios, San Antonio; Texas' Gunter Hotel (where Robert Johnson recorded tracks like "Terraplane Blues"); and the First African Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia. The latter location — the oldest black church in America and a one-time stop on the Underground Railroad — struck a spiritual chord with Mellencamp and his wife Elaine, who decided to be baptized under the altar where Mellencamp had been recording.
The album may be stripped down, but Mellencamp plans an ambitious fall tour. There will be three different sections: a 30-minute "Sun Studio" set, a 30-minute acoustic set, and an hour of plugged-in tunes. And each show will start with a screening of Kurt Markus' It's About You, which chronicles the making of the record. "On those early tours [in the ‘50s], you went to see Gene Vincent, Buddy Holly, and the show started with a movie called The Girl Can't Help It," said Mellencamp, explaining his inspiration for showing the documentary. "It's not an original idea, but it's an idea that hasn't been done in decades."
The setlist for Mellencamp and Dylan's show — plus dates for Mellencamp's upcoming trek — are below.
John Mellencamp's Setlist Pink Houses Paper in Fire No Better Than This Check It Out Save Some Time to Dream Cherry Bomb (Acapella) Don’t Need This Body Small Town Home on the Range Rain on the Scarecrow The West End Troubled Land If I Die Sudden Crumblin’ Down Authority Song
Bob Dylan's setlist Watching The River Flow Lay Lady Lay Most Likely You Go Your Way (and I’ll Go Mine) Stuck Inside of Mobile with The Memphis Blues Again Rollin’ and Tumblin’ Just Like A Woman Cold Irons Bound Workingman Blues #2 Highway 61 Revisited Tryin’ to get to Heaven Thunder on The Mountain Ballad of a Thin Man Like A Rolling Stone All Along The Watchtower
Legends Dylan, Mellencamp perform at Ontario arena
Timeless singer-songwriter Bob Dylan will make a tour stop at the Citizens Business Bank Arena with hitmaker John Mellencamp on Thursday.
Dylan, who has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, is known for influential compositions like "Highway 61 Revisited," "Like A Rolling Stone," "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are A-Changin."'
In an interview, he was asked why he doesn't play the same songs in the same way, like many other musicians of his generation.
"I couldn't if I tried," Dylan said. "Those guys you are talking about all had conspicuous hits. They started out anti-establishment and now they are in charge of the world. Celebratory songs. Music for the grand dinner party. Mainstream stuff that played into the culture on a pervasive level.
"My stuff is different from those guys. It's more desperate. (Roger) Daltrey, (Pete) Townshend, (Paul) McCartney, the Beach Boys, Elton (John), Billy Joel. They made perfect records, so they have to play them perfectly ... exactly the way people remember them.
"My records were never perfect. So there is no point in trying to duplicate them. Anyway, I'm no mainstream artist."
Fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist Mellencamp, who is known for hits like "Pink Houses," "Jack & Diane" "Hurts So Good" and "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A," also will perform.
In a 2007 interview, he was asked if he has any fears.
"Oh, I have millions of them," Mellencamp said. "I'm terrified of germs - I wash my hands constantly. But the most crippling is panic disorder. There's no rhyme or reason to it - I'll be up onstage and it'll just hit me, with no warning. That's why I don't play so much anymore. I've had to go to the hospital."

Bob Dylan to play five shows in Florida during October, tickets go on sale during Rosh Hashanah
Bob Dylan's official website has announced five concert dates in Florida, starting October 6. The first four shows are at different universities, while the fifth is at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center. It is unclear if these dates are being added because of the recent environmental problems in and around the Gulf Coast. Neil Young recently added dates in a few Gulf States, with reduced ticket prices.
Additional shows are expected to be added to this leg of Dylan's tour.
As it stands now, tickets for four of the shows go on sale 10 a.m. on September 10. Interestingly, this falls on the second day of the Jewish High Holy Day of Rosh Hashanah. The second day is not traditionally followed by Reform Jews in the United States. I believe the last time something like this was scheduled, the on sale dates were changed before they went on sale.
The pre-sales for these four gigs start the morning of September 8. Rosh Hashanah starts at sundown that evening.
The October 8 concert in Gainesville will not have a pre sale. Students will be able to purchase tickets in advance on September 20. The general public will be able to buy them the next morning.
Bob Dylan's current tour ends on September 4 before the start of the Jewish High Holy Days. He is not expected to perform on either Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kipper (staring at sundown on September 17).
Here's the tour information:
OCT 6 Fort Lauderdale, FL Nova Southeastern University -- The Arena at Don Taft University Center 8:00pm On sale 9/10 10:00am Pre sale 9/08 10:00am
OCT 7 Tampa, FL University of South Florida -- Sun Dome 8:00pm On sale 9/10 10:00am Pre sale 9/08 10:00am

Вскоре будут опубликованы одни из самых ранних записей Bob Dylan.
19 октября планируется начать продажу сорока семи оригиналов записей певца Bob Dylan, которые он сделал с 1962 года по 1964 год, в комплект также будет включен бутлег, который состоит из восьми альбомов с 1962 по 1967 года. Эта информация размещена на официальном сайте певца.
Релиз бутлега исполнителя готовит Columbia Records. Ранние композиции Bob Dylan были обработаны. Бутлег называется «The Bootleg Series Volume 9-The Witmark Demos». Несмотря на обработку для всех песен был сохранен формат-моно, записи сохранят тот вид, в котором они предполагались самим исполнителем. Релиз будет представлен на CD-дисках и на виниловых пластинках.
Кроме этого на двух дисках выйдут демо-версии записей Bob Dylan. Большинство из них были выполнены исключительно под аккомпанемент гитары, губной гармошки и редко под звуки фортепиано. Прослушивая эти песни, можно отследить творческий рост певца как автора и исполнителя от его ранних песен «Ramblin Gamblin Willie» и «Man On The Street» до социальной тематики «The Times They Are A Changin», «Blowin 'In The Wind» и баллады «Mr. Tambourine Man». Любопытно, что все вошедшие в сборник песни, Dylan написал в возрасте от 21 до 23 лет.
Пятнадцать из 47 песен ни разу ранее не издавались на физических носителях. К таким песням относятся «The Death Of Emmett Till», «Long Ago, Far Away», «Ballad For A Friend», и «Guess I'm Doing Fine».
Выпуск будет сопровождаться большим буклетом, в состав которого войдут редкие фотографии певца и заметки Colin Escott.
