Bob Dylan kicking off NYC run (here are his last 4 setlists)

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan doesn’t deliver knockout punches anymore. He feints, he jabs and every now and then he stings with a left hook.

Saturday night at Tsongas Arena, the sharp hooks were “Simple Twist of Fate” and “Ballad of a Thin Man.” They’re two of Dylan’s best, and they were the rare tunes where he left the keyboard and electric guitar behind and ventured to the microphone stand armed with just a harmonica. He cut into “Thin Man” fiercely: “Something is happening here but you don’t know what it is, do you Mr. Jones?”

Can’t help but wonder that about Dylan nowadays.

The man has acquired a habit of running roughshod over his tunes. He has a crack backing quintet, led by guitarist Charlie Sexton, and they’re tight, Dylan among them. But as a singer, there were moments when Dylan was so rough he out-growled Tom Waits. In “Love Sick,” “Visions of Johanna” and “Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum,” you wondered what the mumbled words hurtling past were. [Boston Herald]

Bob Dylan kicks off a three-night run at NYC’s Terminal 5 tonight (11/22). His last four setlists, all sixteen songs long and ending with an encore of “Jolene” and “Like A Rolling Stone”, are listed below…
