Well, Frankie Lee and Judas Priest
They were the best of friends
So when Frankie Lee needed money one day
Judas quickly pulled out a roll of tens
And placed them on a footstool
Just above the plotted plain
Sayin’, “Take your pick, Frankie Boy
My loss will be your gain”

Bob Dylan: 6 Brilliant live performances from the year 1998





I’ve found a different audience. I’m not good at reading how old people are, but my audience seems to be livelier than they were 10 years ago. They react immediately to what I do, and they don’t come with a lot of preconceived ideas about who they would like me to be, or who they think/ am.
– Bob Dylan (Murray Engleheart Interview for Guitar World)

Million Miles

You took a part of me that I really miss
I keep asking myself how long it can go on like this
You told yourself a lie
That’s alright mama, I told myself one too

Bob Dylan: 6 Brilliant live performances from the year 1997





A lot of people don’t like the road, but it’s as natural to me as breathing. I do it because I’m driven to do it, and I either hate it or love it. I’m mortified to be on the stage, but then again, it’s the only place where I’m happy. It’s the only place you can be who you want to be.
~Bob Dylan (John Pareles Interview, Sept. 1997)

I do a certain amount of concerts every year. But it’s not a constant never-ending tour. A part of me doesn’t wanna do it at all. Just want to quit right away. Playing is a job. My trade. Like you’re journalists. You are heading for the next news item, I’m heading for the next town.
~Bob Dylan (London press conference, 4 Oct 1997)

Bob Dylan: The Gospel Years, Part 1 – Awakening





This is the first part in a new series of posts about Bob Dylan 1979-81: “The Gospel Years”.  We will look at the albums, the tours (each leg), timeline, etc..

For obvious reasons, too many Dylan fans seems to ignore this period. That is sad, because it´s an interesting period with many great performances and 3 strong albums. You don´t have to be religious to enjoy such great art.

The next “Bootleg series” release will be about “The Gospel Years”:
