With over 1000 "Never-Ending Tour" concerts under his belt over the last 10 years, Bob Dylan has established himself as an enigmatic live performer. When he is on, he is unparalleled, singing with emotion and passion like no other. When he is off, he can forget lyrics, play harmonicas in the wrong key, and sleepwalk and mumble his way through an entire show. On May 19th, he was ON. Following Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell on a dream triple bill, Dylan tears the place down from the first notes of "Absolutely Sweet Marie". Here's 70+ minutes of intensity and focus (his entire set), captured on a splendid soundboard recording. Special highlights include a rare performance of "Make You Feel My Love", as well as "Stone Walls and Steel Bars", which has never been officially released.
