Yep, it’s the first Bob Dylan Friday since SXSW 2k11 ended, and I hope you forgive the fact that last week was a blur and had to be skipped, but I’m back with #89 — yep, fucking #89! and I’ve got a good one for you. Bob Dylan and Woodstock have some interesting history, don’t they? The festival was placed up near Woodstock in 1969 where Bob was living at the time (and threatning to burn down people’s homes who harassed him at his own home — fucking hippies) but he declined the invite after his mysterious disappearance post-’66 motorcycle nightmare. Instead he went to Isle of Wight and made sure to set off on a boat the day Woodstock started. However, 25 years later at Woodstock ’94, he signed on to play and was introduced as such. It was considered to be one of the best performances at the shitty wannabe Woodstock. This is a powerful recording, not unlike the Isle of Wight performance 25 years earlier. This also began a new direction of career for him. It’s amazing.
