online Review:

“Live At Paleur is a soundboard recording taken from Dylan’s 1984 tour of Europe. It captures a highly enjoyable performance from Dylan and his Mick Taylor-fronted band. This recording sets Dylan’s vocals way out in front but I personally enjoy that mix. The band are a little buried on some of thew songs and there are occasional echoes on the vocals but if you don’t mind these things then this is a great recording. It’d give and 8 or an 8.5 out of 10. Dylan sings most of the songs in the confident, swaggering style that characterised many of live performances in the 1980’s. While this style is certainly not my favourite of Bob’s “vocal characters”, it works to good effect on many of the songs here. One thing that cannot be disputed is that ‘Live At Palaeur’ is a much better document of this tour than the patchy official release ‘Real Live’. Ballad Of A Thin Man on ‘Real Live’ is a horrible, rushed parody of the song that appeared on ‘Highway 61 Revisited’. Here Ballad… is one of the highlights of the set. The versions of Maggies Farm, Masters Of War and Tombstone Blues on this release also put their Real Live incarnations to shame. Other highpoints include the brilliant, rewritten Tangled Up In Blue, an interesting post-Gospel rewrite of When You Gonna Wake Up? (“When you gonna wake up? maybe you never will”), a passionate I & I and a beautiful performance of Every Grain Of Sand, which was still a relatively new song at that time. It’s clear that Bob’s having fun when he lets the audience sing on the chorus of Times They Are A-Changin’ and Blowin’ In The Wind. All in all, this is a highly entertaining show and I don’t hesitate in giving it my stamp of approval (for whatever that’s worth…) “

And We’re Back

Many of you likely noticed my site went all screwy today.  This morning I received an e-mail from my ISP informing me that they had moved my site to a new server.  This new server, it seems, does not support the old version of WordPress that I was using.  Thus the screwed up site.

They had been telling me to update WordPress for ages, but I could never figure out how.  I can blog all night long, but the behind the scenes coding junk is well beyond my powers.

When I asked them how to upgrade they sent me a link with loads of information, most of which made no sense to my little brain.  Still, I tried to give it a go and screwed it up even more.  There was a moment of panic when the site was completely down and I thought I’d lost everything.  I sent messages out on Facebook, I called my tech guru Uncle hoping someone, anyone could help me.

Out of desperation I sent an e-mail back to my ISP wondering if they had some sort of service to help.  I figured they’d charge plenty, but I couldn’t imagine losing all my posts, and especially all the comments.  Maybe ten minutes later they sent me an e-mail saying they’d fixed it for me.

Huzzah and all that.

There are likely a few kinks to work out.  They said some of the old plugins might not work.  I’ll likely try a few  new ones too.  I also have to figure out how to get my comment spam filter working again.  I’m going crazy deleting all the junk that comes in pretty constantly.

But, yea!  We’re back.

Funny thing is I’d actually been considering making big changes with the website.  If the Amazon hoster keeps working like it does then I’ll start paying for it.  Not sure I want to pay for that plus a monthly fee for the website.  I’m still thinking it over but I might go back to one of the free blog sites.  Or maybe use one of those as a blogger platform with some sort of static page that would list out all my shows that are permanently available.  I’d still use the same URL so no matter what happen I can be found.

But for now I’ll keep playing with what I’ve got.  Enjoy the shows.

*without Jerry Garcia; with Elvin Bishop
**without Jerry Garcia; with Elvin Bishop; with Wayne Ceballos

The splice in Checkin’ Up @ 1:14 is very minor, and hardly noticeable

From the original uploader
For unknown reasons, it appears that Jerry Garcia is missing for the first 5 songs, and Elvin Bishop plays lead guitar. The crowd, Phil & Bob acknowledge the missing Garcia after Smokestack, which must be the opener. Wayne Ceballos adds vocals for Checkin’ Up and BIODTL. A faintly heard voice off microphone could be Garcia’s just before Checkin’ Up. Two days later during the same run, Pigpen ended up a spectator for some songs while Bishop & Ceballos sat in, so it seems possible that this is the case with Jerry,
given a laid back atmosphere.

Deadlists vaguely indicates that this represents all of 6-6-69. However, it seems likely that some music may be missing before Lovelight. The guests are not present during Lovelight, and Garcia is playing on this version. This is perhaps the longest version of Lovelight known to have been played,
clocking in at just under 47 minutes.

Sound Forge was used to correct the pitch of the recording.
