Bob Dylan, Real Live (1984)
So excited am I that Bob Dylan is coming back to play and I’m such a huge Bob Dylan kick right now (I wonder when I’m not, really…) I rushed out to buy this the other day. I used to have it on CD, but I hardly ever played it. It is by no means essential. But, with the passage of time I have come to really enjoy it – it’s a thrown-together live album from Dylan’s problematic 1980s but it has some great song selections, some ‘different’ versions, a mix of band and solo arrangements. It’s a decent enough thing to have and play in the midst of a big Bob Dylan deep-dive. Which is I why I had to have it. (Again). Oh and Mick Taylor is on guitar, and that’s kinda more interesting to me now than it was when I first heard this.
