iTunes Review

Bootlegged from almost the first hour there were rock bootleggers, Bob Dylan's 1966 Royal Albert Hall concert (actually recorded in Manchester on the same tour) was a legendary performance for three decades before seeing official release in 1998. The first half offers solo acoustic versions of some of Dylan's knottiest new tunes, while the second set with the Hawks (later the Band) roars like hounds chasing the electric rabbit. Dylan's singing is at its most confident and strange, peculiarly suited for straightforward declarations like "I'm your friend" ("Tell Me Mama") and the surreal border saga "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues." The most famous moment, of course, is when some hapless audience member equates the Jewish Dylan with the man who betrayed Christ after which the singer leaves the heckler stranded with "Like a Rolling Stone."

WHAT THE H*LL

Why the heck did itunes cut out the "Judas" part?! I feel like i got ripped off by buying this album without that part in it. Here's a tip to anyone thinking about buying it from itunes. Dont. Its not the full album.

Oh, the redundant complaints of iTunes users.

Sheesh. Calm down about the "Judas" reference being supposedly cut out and blaming iTunes for it. Surely that incident was amusing, but why so many of you are bothering to rate an entire (and good) live album badly because of it is something that I can't quite understand. If you're really THAT fixated on hearing it, here's a helpful hint: Buy the live version of "Like A Rolling Stone" from the soundtrack to "No Direction Home." The line is still there.

Great concert, but missing the most famous part

Bob Dylan's 1966 concert series, as documented by the Pennebaker film "Don't Look Back" is provided in this double album. The acoustic first set has Dylan at his most intimate and piercing. The emotion flows from him and the recording reflects the tension in the concert hall with each strained note and improv harmonica rant. The second set is a raucous Dylan belting out electric versions of songs old and new, with the backing of his full band. Unfortunately, the highlight of this concert is omitted. Just before Dylan and the band kick off into "Like a Rolling Stone" the bootleggers caught someone in the crowd crying out "JUDAS!" Dylan's famous reply "I don't believe you... you're a liar," is clearly caught by the microphone. Dylan then turns to his band and instructs them to "Play it f******* loud!" The classic version of Like a Rolling Stone then kicks off with huge energy and swollen muscle. To miss this tidbit (short as the interchange was) almost cripples this version of the album. Does anyone know if iTunes has the full version of that song?

Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
