Classic Rock Bottom


Well, now it was 20 years and ONE WEEK ago, 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.
And things will get musically very interesting as the evening goes along at the Concert, which you may be interested to know was on American Pay Per View television.
This was a momentous, fitting tribute to one of the true living legends of our time.
Neil Young humorously but aptly nicknamed it Bobfest!
For these last two parts we have a dream lineup.
I don’t want to give anything away, ruin it if you have never heard these performances.
Again as in the past, I ask you to just trust me- we’ll hear some of the biggest names in the world of Rock & Roll stretching, reworking and putting their own stamp on the music of Bob Dylan.
However I will tell you I will open this chapter with Neil Young scorching a song that is probably more associated with Jimi Hendrix.
I wonder how many have forgotten it was first done by Bob on one of his albums…or never knew?
These are some incredible live performances!
As always, enjoy!

Thwarted because this is Classic Rock BOTTOM!

Don't you know where you are?
Take off the tuxedo and do some squat thrusts, lol!

Neil Young gets the Golden Pell right off the bat!
Nice choice, as not too many people even try to do that song- but Neil is daring.
Didn't know Bob prefers Jimi's version but it's understandable.
I don't know either who played the guitar on the Hynde track, it doesn't say on the CD and I don't have a DVD.
There are plenty of great guitarists listed, so it could have been any one of them.
I prefer the old version of Don't Think Twice, but it was fun to hear Clapton change it around and rework it.
Thanks for the listen and writing again,

Comment by Mike Pell on October 25, 2012 at 7:51pm my Brooklyn neighborhood there would be quite a LOT wrong with that, lol!

Lighting my traditional hippie candle,

Umm...not that there's anything wrong with that. Right?

Hey, after x-rays, MRI's and every other damn test, I can honestly state I don't have a GAY BONE in my body!
Case closed, lol!

Still sounds romantic.  Are you guys based out of San Francisco?

Comment by Mike Pell on October 25, 2012 at 1:39pm

Dammit, I was afraid of that, lol!
It's just two guys who used to drink massive amounts of beer, and now drink coffee, having a couple of smokes, cranking up the tunes and pissing off my neighbors.

There are lights from other rooms, but in the living room just the lamp over the stereo and the candle...sometimes the TV is on no sound.

Truly the BEST way to listen to music...and going from vinyl to cassette to CD effortlessly.

Helluva lot easier than a radio show, lol!

Sounds romantic.

Scott & Jon,

The best way to listen is to turn all the lights out and concentrate, lol!

When my buddy Mike comes over that's we do- I just have the light over the turntable on...and I light what we call the traditional "hippie" candle, lol!
It's true, the coolest way to listen to music!
