One of the great Bob Dylan concerts is on DVD but only partially
Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert
If there is one Bob Dylan concert to have on video, it’s the 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration from 1992.
I’ll try to thread my way through the various versions available today.

(Updated) – Wolfgang’s Vault is showing raw black and white rushes from “The Last Waltz”.
They 52 videos are not perfect but they are fun to watch and show you how things look and sound before they get edited and mixed.

Daniel Lanois has won three Grammy Awards as producer for album of the year. He also likes to avoid Pro Tools and other software based audio recording software.

“Listen to this before they take it down,” says Bob Lefsetz.
The two concerts were benefits for the
Bridge Street School, ” professional development opportunities for people interested and/or involved in working with individuals who have severe physical and speech impairments”. It’s a charity favored by Neil Young.
It took 40 years but here it is

It’s hard to wake up and realize that today you can do nothing but rest and pass the time until another better day.
Disabilities present the human spirit with a frustrating paradox. It’s our natural inclination to strive for achievement yet the limits of disability are real and ever present.
