BOB DYLAN, LIVE @ ESSEX FAIRGROUNDS 7/1
Just got back from the Bob Dylan show at the Essex Fairgrounds tonight. I need to get to bed so I will wait until tomorrow to write up a full review, but it was an amazing show. Prior to tonight, I'd Dylan in concert twice: First in '96 at UVM's Patrick Gymnasium (horrible show), then in State College, PA at Penn State in 2001 (very good show, right after "Love and Theft" was released). I was hoping for something at least somewhere in between tonight, but was pleasantly surprised to have the Penn State show blown completely out of the water. Dylan was on his game tonight, energetic, spry & hitting some upper register notes that I haven't heard him hit in quite a while.
Tomorrow night I'll write up a full review--off to bed for me now.
