|1993 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 80 shows, 79 different songs played|
|Introduction for the shows: "Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Bob Dylan".
Touring band: Bucky Baxter, pedal steel guitar, electric mandolin & electric slide guitar; John Jackson, guitar; Tony Garnier, bass; Winston Watson, drums & percussion.
In contrast to the beginning of the NET, with short crisp songs, the first tour legs are characterized by the ever growing length of the tracks with long drawn out improvisations. Songs from twelve to fourteen minutes are no exception. Nevertheless, the shows are dynamic, with harsh electrical songs interspersed with sensitive acoustic songs. In the fall tour, when showtime is cut short from 2.20 hours to under 1.30 because of touring together with Santana, the songs are shorter again.
Highlights of the year, and maybe of the whole NET, are the four shows on 16 and 17 November at The Supper Club in New York City. The shows are around one hour and all acoustic. Every show is growing better and include traditionals of Good As I Been To You and the this month to be released World Gone Wrong, also an album with only covers. Musically Dylan is at its peak, unfortunately his voice is sharp and nasal. The Supper Club shows are captured in excellent soundboard recordings, but are never official released.
