It was 20 years ago TODAY, on October 16, 1992, that an all-star celebration of the 1962 release of Bob Dylan's first album took place at Madison Square Garden here in New York City.
The 30th Anniversary...and now amazingly, Dylan's career started 50 YEARS AGO!
This is the first of four parts in which I will play what I consider the highlights of the Concert.
Purely subjective, as it always is.
Simply, I could not fit all the performances into two hours, so choices had to be made.
Hope you like what I picked.
This short series seemed like a good idea because enough time has passed, 20 years, for there to be a good number of people who have not heard these performances in a long time- the CD's or vinyl records tucked away somewhere virtually forgotten.
And certainly an equal amount of people who have never heard anything from this Concert...don't even know it exists.
Plus I remind you, as all concert-goers know the Performing Stars get bigger as the evening goes on.
So stick with me, as we go along the stakes get higher, and the Music TAKES you higher!
