Nog even over dinsdagavond. Toen was de eerste show in Wenen. Het concert was al bezig met de toegiften, toen Dylan zich kwaad maakte. Iemand maakte een foto van de zanger, iets dat op nadrukkelijk verzoek van de bard verboden is. De man legde de muziek stil en blafte het publiek toe: "We can either play or pose. It's your decision!" 
Kijk vooral even naar de filmpjes. Aan deze uitspraak (waar je bijna denkt aan de Free Trade Hall in Londen in 1966, toen Dylan werd uitgemaakt voor Judas – vanwege zijn overstap naar de elektrische muziek. “I don't believe you. You're a liar!”) gaat een wat ongemakkelijk moment aan vooraf. Nadat hij in eerste instantie al iets had gezegd over de foto's, gaat hij naar drummer George Recelli en bassist Tony Garnier – en struikelt bijna over een geluidsmonitor. Als hij zich heeft hervat, gaat hij terug naar zijn microfoon om het publiek uit te voeteren.

Kronieken #43: Goede Vrijdag 2019

Het is vandaag Goede Vrijdag. En geen Bob Dylan tijdens dit Paasweekend in Nederland. Tien jaar geleden trad Dylan met Goede Vrijdag op in de Heineken Music Hall. In 2007 (1e en 2e Paasdag), 2009 (Goede Vrijdag, Stille Zaterdag, Eerste Paasdag) en 2017 (Eerste, Tweede en Derde Paasdag) was Dylan wel tijdens het belangrijke christelijke feest in ons land. 
Philippe Remarque vertrekt per 1 september als hoofdredacteur van de Volkskrant. Hij wordt journalistiek directeur van de Persgroep. Zijn achternaam doet me altijd denken aan Erich Maria Remarque, van wie het boek Van het westelijk front geen nieuws door Dylan wordt genoemd in zijn Nobel Speech als inspiratiebron. 
Dylan's duplicaat van de testpersing van Blood On The Tracks was afgelopen zaterdag, Record Store Day, het best verkochte album.
Vandaag is het Goede Vrijdag. Naast The Passion en de verschillende uitvoeringen van de Matthaüs Passion een goede dag om de film The Passion Of The Christ van Mel Gibson te kijken. In 2011 stond een bericht in het Nederlands Dagblad dat Gibson Bob Dylan heeft gevraagd voor de filmmuziek. Maar de zanger weigerde in eerste instantie, wegens tijdgebrek. Later droeg Dylan nog wel “Rock of ages” aan voor de soundtrack, maar dit werd weer geweigerd omdat er al filmmuziek was gemaakt door John Debney. Sindsdien 'verdenk' ik Dylan ervan, dat Ain't Talkin' uit 2006 een antwoord is op het verzoek van Gibson.

Blood On The Tracks Test Pressing

The Blood On The Tracks Test Pressing has taken on near-mythical status -- I have read several sources on-line indicating that something like five copies are known to exist! Some collectors consider this to be one of the great "holy grails" of record collecting, right up there alongside The Beatles' "butcher" cover (which I am still seeking, btw), the Mono edition of Paul McCartney's RAM (which was reissued several years ago, fyi) and the first Buddy Holly & The Crickets LP (of which I finally found a beautiful DJ copy last year at a thrift shop, but I digress...). 
So, here -- finally, after years of only hearing the murky bootlegged version -- we have a fine replica of the actual Blood On The Tracks Test Pressingwhich was released in a very, very (very) limited quantity in 1974 before Dylan decided to rework the record for its final incarnation (now considered one of his finest works). And again, this seems to include one track not on the boxed set that many Dylan fans have wanted for decades in particular (stay tuned about that...).
