Bob Dylan

1988 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 71 shows, 87 different songs played * * * * * START OF THE NEVER ENDING TOUR
Big bands, strings and washed-out horns, background vocals and lack of inspiration, in 1988 Dylan throws it all away. With only drums (Chris Parker), lead guitar (G.E. Smith) and bass (Kenny Aaronson) a revived Dylan playes energetic rock and roll interspersed with short acoustic sets where traditionals sparkle. Who could ever imagine that this was the beginning of a work of art that encompasses decades?
