Bob Dylan, Fort Collins Stadium Radio Broadcast, Colorado May 23rd 1976 (2017)
It’s a dirty bootleg – it says it’s limited to 500 copies and is on a ‘label’ called BAD JOKER – I ask no questions and access the music. I know this recording well – it was released on TV also and is readily available for your streaming – and the “official” document from around this time is the Hard Rain album – all of this stuff is great. But I saw this, cheap, and wanted it. Because this is Bob Dylan. And because this is Bob Dylan at a killer-good time – just ferocious and mesmerising and maybe never better vocally. In fact this radio/TV broadcast is recorded a day shy of his 35th birthday if my maths is good enough. Anyway, it’s all here. Bob in all his brilliance and glory. Pretty decent transfer being that this was radio-broadcast quality for the time.
