  1. David T. Pudelwitts

    Bob Dylan in Concert: Brandeis University 1963. A short but very nice album that features Dylan doing some remarkable versions of some of his Anti-War and Pro-Civil Rights hits. Odd to hear people give a sort of non-committal applause for a few of the songs, then give a huge accolade for Masters of War, which many of them had just heard for the first time! It shows one thing, in those days the audiences LISTENED to the music and what it was saying. It was important. Dylan was not a big star yet. It seems to be almost a “practice run” at being “The Voice of His Generation” There is a little humility and even timidity in the performance. Not the raucous and sometimes high-handed Bob of later years when he was a major superstar. One gets the real atmosphere of this small stage performance before people who were there to see what Dylan was bringing to the table. Whether he liked it or not it was performances like these that made him the Voice of His Generation whether he liked it or not. He always wants to be out of the limelight, but it was apparent at this concert that he had something to say, not just as a performer, but as a thoughtful part of a growing movement he was leading. this is a delightful “Must Have” for any Dylan-O-Phile. Titles include:Honey Just Allow Me One More Chance, Talkin’ John Birch Society Blues, Ballad of Hollis Brown, masters of War,Talkin’ World War III Blues, Bob Dylan’s Dream,Talkin’ and Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues.

    ….you will want to own this. It starts off ugly, joining the first song in progress, and giving you only 2 minutes until it’s conclusion. After that, 6 more songs which was probably Dylan’s primary song list at the time, ending with the dated Talking Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues, not the most exciting of songs to end on. BUT, when you look back at this discs’ place in history, a fledgling young man with harmonica and guitar, who could have been just another student, but instead would become the voice of a generation, then it is an essential artifact of the time. Well worth the small amount charged for this CD.
