This is so cool.
Thanks for sharing.
Love that Tele too.
Funny. A guy who attends one of the open mics I host played it last night. Said he learnt it through the Dead but mentioned Simon and Garfunkel also recorded a version...
Cool indeed. Wow!
I've been watching these videos for couple months now. There's tons of them, if you don't see them in the YouTube sidebar go looking for them. Definitely worth it.
Awesome! Thank you
I saw Dylan with GE. Thinking about the show and where I saw it, and also my girlfriend I went with and when we split up, it would have been early in GE's time with him, '88 sounds about right. I also remember, or at least think I remember, that when the show was announced, it listed Marshall Crenshaw as a band member, no mention of GE. So when I saw GE up there it was a surprise. Not bad, or good--like GE said more than once in that interview, it was about Dylan.
It was outdoors somewhere in North County San Diego. Don't remember much about the venue or exactly where it was, or if it was even a regular concert venue. I don't remember going there or hearing of it before or since, and I went to a lot of shows in San Diego. I know I saw Bob twice at Golden Hall.
I saw one of the shows with Tom Petty too, Tom and the Heartbreakers did a set, then backed Dylan. That was in San Diego too, at the Sports Arena.
Great story from a cool, humble monster. Saw him with My Morning Jacket and Roger Waters playing the Floyd classics at Newport Folk last summer. GE's Guitar cut through everything!
Know her? She's my cousin!
Those guys would have all learned it from Dylan's first album.
I enjoyed that! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for posting that, Jon.
There are certain people that I can listen to all day long and never grow tired of them speaking. Typically, it's a combination of interesting stories, great storytelling ability, sense of humor and humility.
G.E. Smith is one of those guys.
