On Friday, Bob Dylan returned to London to play in front of 65,000 people as part of his co-headline concert with Neil Young in Hyde Park. On this week’s Definitely Dylan Live, Laura and Robert talk about their impressions of the night, discussing Dylan’s song choices (and what they might mean), his excellent mood, and some of the interesting differences in approach between Messrs Young and Dylan.
Here’s a beautiful video of Girl From The North Country from the Hyde Park concert (sounding suspiciously like Spanish Is The Loving Tongue).
And here’s the incredible version of Can’t Wait from Milan in 2011 that was mentioned in the show.
Ballad of a Thin Man (Live at Earl's Court, London, 27 June, 1981)
Girl From The North Country (Live at Madison Square Garden, New York City, 20 January 1998)
Can’t Wait (Alternate Version #2, from Bootleg Series 8: Tell Tale Signs)
Gotta Serve Somebody (Live at Earl's Court, London, 27 June, 1981)
