    It's gonna be an interesting set! Currently, I'm listening to Triplicate a lot. There are some songs there that really grab me, like his ironic take on "The Best Is Yet To Come." My only criticism is that he didn't change up the tempos enough and everything is too stately. It would have benefited from a few up-tempo numbers.

    I am an eternal fan; I saw him once. But I think this is a money grab for a producer who is capitalizing on Dylan for winning the Nobel prize for Literature.

    But how can you go against a guy who shuns the limelight and writes bluesy soliloquies and monologues? The last song I absolutely loved is 'Everything is Broken'. He made such a stink at the Newport Folk Festival with a Stratocaster, and didn't keep the guitar. He is the essence of cool, and he is still here.

    I first saw Dylan perform at the Gaslight in 1962.
    He was doing an after hours showcase and performing his first original songs.
    My 14 year old mind was blown.

    Subsequently I've seen him somewhere close to fifty times including Newport, Forest Hills, Town Hall, with the Dead, with the Heartbreakers and on and on.
    I guess I'm a fan.

    I'm very impressed, and a little envious, LP26. That's some major landmark performances you've seen. Kudos to 14yo you for spotting the genius.

    Trouble No More is good stuff. Especially the Live recordings. An amazing band. The DVD is amazing and strange. Some of the best live Dylan footage I’ve seen. His voice sounds great, too. The sermons interludes are bizarre but I’m glad they’re there. Never appreciated this era until I saw the live footage.

    When I saw him in '62 it was prior to the release of his first album.
    I was a beatnik kid who, blessed by circumstances of birth, roamed the cafés and coffeehouses in the Village. I got to see all manner of folks perform before they had achieved any degree of notoriety. I went to the weekly poetry readings at St. Marks Church, soaked up the music scene, and achieved a doctoral level education in counter-culturalism before I left high school... just in time to morph into a hippie and forever grateful for those serendipitous circumstances of birth.

    I haven't either (considered this era at all) but there's one of the live cuts on a new sampler disc they give away with each MOJO magazine and it's astoundingly good. Lotsa heavy hitters in that band.
