Bob Dylan with Mick Taylor & Carlos Santana - 1984-06-19 - Rome (SBD - FLAC)

Bob Dylan with Mick Taylor & Carlos Santana - 1984-06-19 - Rome  (SBD - FLAC)
Venue: Palaeur di Roma


Year of Release: 2001
Label: Shamrock
Catalog Number: SR-201003/4
Liberated Boot: Live At Palaeur

Silver CD > CDR > FLAC

"A complete soundboard recording from 1984. The recording seems to be taken from Dylan's monitor mix, since the vocals dominate a bit more than anything else. Nevertheless, the music comes through loud and clear, and the upfront vocals only serve to highlight what a passionate vocal performance this is. A 'must have' disc from a period that is under-represented in most collections. This is a crystal clear soundboard. The audience is virtually non-existent. The songs that Dylan performs solo(acoustic) are a perfect blend of voice and instrument. Simple Twist Of Fate is one of the highlights worth mentioning. Bob pours himself into it as never before, and becomes the actor. When You Gonna Wake Up has all new lyrics. Dylan's vocal sound is extraordinarily clear and defined, and his lyrical improvisations are on dazzling display. The performance as a whole is a joy to behold. A wonderful set! Carlos Santana, who had previously played his own set with his band, joined Dylan in the last songs of the concert."  BobsBoots.

Online Review:
"Live At Paleur is a soundboard recording taken from Dylan's 1984 tour of Europe. It captures a highly enjoyable performance from Dylan and his Mick Taylor-fronted band. This recording sets Dylan's vocals way out in front but I personally enjoy that mix. The band are a little buried on some of thew songs and there are occasional echoes on the vocals but if you don't mind these things then this is a great recording. It'd give and 8 or an 8.5 out of 10. Dylan sings most of the songs in the confident, swaggering style that characterised many of live performances in the 1980's. While this style is certainly not my favourite of Bob's "vocal characters", it works to good effect on many of the songs here. One thing that cannot be disputed is that 'Live At Palaeur' is a much better document of this tour than the patchy official release 'Real Live'. Ballad Of A Thin Man on 'Real Live' is a horrible, rushed parody of the song that appeared on 'Highway 61 Revisited'. Here Ballad... is one of the highlights of the set. The versions of Maggies Farm, Masters Of War and Tombstone Blues on this release also put their Real Live incarnations to shame. Other highpoints include the brilliant, rewritten Tangled Up In Blue, an interesting post-Gospel rewrite of When You Gonna Wake Up? ("When you gonna wake up? maybe you never will"), a passionate I & I and a beautiful performance of Every Grain Of Sand, which was still a relatively new song at that time. It's clear that Bob's having fun when he lets the audience sing on the chorus of Times They Are A-Changin' and Blowin' In The Wind. All in all, this is a highly entertaining show and I don't hesitate in giving it my stamp of approval (for whatever that's worth...) "

"Stunning sound and a focused, deliberate performance combine to make this a highlight of the extant acoustic sets. A smooth recording that captures Dylan in what seems to be a more mellow, "stoned" mood than Sydney. The trio of electric tracks, full-bodied and well-balanced recordings, make for some great listening. The Adelaide interview is interesting."

Notes: says:
"5-19-73 - Fort Worth Express (Empress Valley, original and reissue), I'm With the Band (Tarantura2000), Tympani For the Butter Queen (Midas Touch), & Worthwhile Experience/From Boleskine To the Alamo (Flying Disc). Flying disc is missing almost all of the tape before and after the first and last tracks. Dazed and Confused has been moved out of sequence and 80 seconds of tape after the song is missing. It has too much background noise. Midas, Tarantura2000, and Empress Valley are virtually identical in content. Tarantura2000 has been amplified a little bit. Empress's title emphasizes the lower frequencies but has a touch too much background noise. EV's reissue reuses the same discs as the original release."

Birdman's Notes:
"Rather than just paste the first 8 songs onto the BBC show, I thought I'd build a complete mix of all three sources. This allows the mix to have a similar sound throughout, making it less of a cut and paste job. The BBC source was also fairly sterile - adding the AUD sources overtop livens it up ;-)  The result is a pretty choice show I think, certainly worth a grab. Here's what was done to each of the three recordings"
Wilatw's source:
- Heavy EQ to make it sound more like the top end of the BBC show. 
- Amplify and add some missing low end and vocals.
Martinick's source:
- Time adjust to match first source.
- fix about 200 pops and glitches from a bad microphone. By hand, each one.
BBC Source:
- Time adjust to match first source.
The mix was able to:
- Remove the BBC announcer
- Work around several unfixable glitches in Martinick's source, particularly in the intros to songs.
- For the most part, unless working around a glitch or an announcer, the mix is 33% of each source. - The first 8 tracks are 50% of the two AUD sources.
Even without the BBC source this would have been an excellent mix. Adding the the BBC source gives the last 2/3 of the show a bit more body, but doesn't overpower the already great mix made by the other two.
Hope you like it - And as always, thanks to the original tapers for their hard work, and for their direct permission to create this mix." Birdman (2005-07-22)
