I enjoyed last night's show even more than I did Monday's. I will definitely get the DVD. I am a fan of Bob's music through just about every era, I was seven when he went electric, so I heard that stuff first. But, to me the highlights of last night's show were the clips of him alone on on stage with his acoustic and harmonica. It's All Over Now Baby Blue, Visions of Johanna, It's Allright Ma, Love Minus Zero etc. Mesmerizing. I also enjoyed him sitting with Johnny Cash working out harmonies for Hank Williams' I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry.

Bob has had a bad rap with the media, but some of those questions!!! I loved the look that he gave the guy who asked what the significance of the Triumph Motorcycle on his tee shirt was on the cover of Highway 61 Revisited. It was "you're kidding me, right?". The guy was serious and had his own ideas what it went. There is the problem with Dylan geeks (hey, I'm a pseudo Dylan geek). It was just a flippin' tee shirt.
