Bob Dylan Bootleg recognized by Rolling Stone

RED HOT BOOTLEG: BOB DYLAN IN SAN JOSE '92


In the March 6, 2008 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, writer Andy Greene taps Bob Dylan's 1992 performance in San Jose as one of Bob's best performances of the period (pg 61). His "Bootleg" pick in the issue is a top version of "Idiot Wind" which appeared near the end of the long show - performed on May 9th, 1992 at the San Jose University Center. What Mr. Greene didn't realize, was that T-Bone Burnett had walked on stage that night to join Dylan and his band. Burnett played lead guitar for "Idiot Wind!" It's a magnificent performance and a great bootleg.

I'VE LISTENED TO BOB FOR 30SOME YEARS. THIS IS ONE OF HIS REALLY 'LOST' PERIODS. HE SOUNDS MORE FOCUSED ON THIS SONG THAN ON ANY OTHER TUNES HE SANG DURING THIS PERIOD.

Thanks for the info on the Rolling Stone piece. Is there something wrong with the links for the San Jose show? When I try to download, it says the file doesn't exist.

Thanks again, your site rocks. That Zeppelin show from a week or so ago was terrific.

Thanks for your kind words. The San Jose show will be restored based on popular demand!

Return back soon and you will find the material restored.
