My pool name implies a visual impairment, but it seems my judgement in picks is my true handicap this round. What a write off! Let's see what tour dates are added to the summer (Australia? More Asia?) so we can get back up again, cause we ain't a gonna grieve no more.

My friends, this is one mediocre tour for Pounds of Headlines. Were it not for skelly35, we'd look like a bunch of amateurs. There's always next time.

Sooo worth the wait. Especially with the Easter season upon us, I've been wearing that thing out. Can't say I really dug the film though. I saw a show recently at Massey Hall and the whole time just kept thinking about how awesome it would have been to be at the 1980 Gospel shows there (but I would have been 2 and probably not appreciated as much as today). They're shutting Massey Hall down for a multi year renovation and Gordon Lightfoot it closing it out for it's last show on Canada Day (it doesn't get more patriotic than that in the North Country fair). I hope it doesn't lose it's charm and access (you can literally just walk up to the lip of the stage). I have heard similar reviews about the banter at the Broadway shows, but like you said, the sound must have been great. I always listen to E Street radio on the Sirius XM in my car and they play a lot of great live stuff. Looks like Dylan is going light on the Sinatra so far on the new leg. It's kind of tripped up my choices.

Thanks for sticking with the team everyone. The Broadway show featured the best sound quality of any Springsteen show I've seen. As well it should have, considering the size of the venue and the price of the tickets. The music was great. The between-song patter was stiffer than it is at one of his concerts, more like he was reciting than conversing. Glad I went. So Willie, what do you think of the gospel box?

I haven't logged in for a while. How was Springsteen on Broadway? I love the 1990 Cristic shows from LA. I read Born to Run and I hear he tells a lot of the same stories from the book in the broadway show. Let's see if the whole team signs up for the Spring tour.

I was going to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving, then realized that most of the team is from outside the US. So, happy Thursday everyone! By the way, in case any of you care, my anguish over missing the Dylan concert earlier this year was mitigated by my seeing the Springsteen On Broadway show in NYC last week.

This is my worst pool performance in quite some time. Thankfully it's a short tour leg.

Mine arrived in the mail today from Amazon, but I'm not allowed to have it until next month!!!! I guess it will be up to youtube to tide me over until then.

I've been listening to the gospel box all night. I've listened to 4 discs so far and oh man is it a blast.

Since hearing Bob's rendition of Once Upon A Time, I've listened to 7 or 8 versions by other singers. Sinatra, Bennett, etc. I find Dylan's singing to be much more believable than any of the others. A great, great interpretation.

SO many 20-pointers and none of them mine. The Gospel Box is going to be one of the best Bootleg Series for sure. All of the new Bob stuff comes out in November each year and I always have to wait until early December (the wife gets mad if I buy it for myself when my birthday is only a few weeks later!)

I more aspire to be like Captain Beefheart, Willie. I am really, really looking forward to that gospel box. It took me a while, but this lapsed Catholic has grown to love those albums.

go put on a fancy feathered hat and have a shot of spiced rum...you deserve it, Captain. Can't wait for the next Bootleg Series. A lot of tracks from the Toronto Massey Hall show, the best venue in the city. Maybe a Wilbury tune will make it into the set for Tom?

It's so seldom that I get to do something "captainy." "Captainish?" Anyway, my pleasure.

Hey Skelly, you don't seem to have picked a 20-pointer.

I will be back as well. Why try to change us now?! I was just happy to catch two shows on the tour. At our local mall they replaced the HMV store with an independent record store and they carry all kinds of great stuff. I picked up a a bootleg of Bob and Tom Petty from the 1986 Australia tour. Bob is very chatty between songs. He tells the audience to "shut up" at one point when he's talking about "heroes" (very similar to the opening of Hard To Handle, if you still have a VHS player!). Great live show, lots of Empire Burlesque in there and a killer Watchtower.
