Bob Dylan - Real Live (1991) Retail CD
Rock & Roll
"Real Live" may not be as grand as the double album "Live 1975", as groundbreaking as "Live 1966" or as intense as "Hard Rain".In fact, there aren't too many surprises as far as arrangements go, and the band is a fairly ordinary four-piece combo (plus Dylan himself).So why even buy this? Most of the songs can be found on other live albums anyway, and the new verses for "Tangled Up In Blue" aren't THAT magnificent.Well, this may not be Bob Dylan's most interesting live effort, but it is actually a fine live album nonetheless, and the band is excellent. Dylan's 1984 touring combo may not have beenmore… as wild and idiosyncratic as The Band, but you can't put a finger on their musicianship. Former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor is very prominent troughout the album, and plays some excellent solos, and the production is very good, allowing the listener to hear both Taylor's leads and Dylan's rhythm guitar. And drummer Collin Allen swings, creating a superb groove with bassist Greg Sutton and another Stones-ally, keyboardist Ian McLagan.Among the highlights are "Highway 61", a superb piece of garage rock, a swinging, groovy "I And I", the seven-minute rendition of "Tangled Up In Blue" (fine vocal performance by Dylan), and a really rocking "Tombstone Blues". "Maggie's Farm" is great too, it just doesn't match the intensity of the version found on "Hard Rain"."Real Live" also features an interesting electric version of "Masters Of War", and even though it may seem a bit short at "only" ten songs, it does clock in at 50 minutes, which makes it about as long as you can expect from an LP-era release."Real Live" may not be an essential Bob Dylan purchase, but if you are a fan, it provides a ncie addition to the Dylan catalogue, sporting lean, muscular versions of some of his best songs.
