I suppose its true that if you don't expect much, you won't be disappointed. Bob was strong and fit, and while the obvious work on the hair and face were a distraction, the costume was high cowboy style down to every detail, worn gracefully and with confidence. No hat or earpiece, and I winced a few times as he waved around the mike stand, fearing damage to Tony's bass fiddle or worse, but Bob was the least self conscious than I have seen him in a long time. Best performances were from Tempest, including a truly outstanding Duquesne. New arrangements of the other classics did not come across as well as the long polished 61, Blowin and Thin Man, but it was the rare treat to see Bob wielding the axe briefly but poignantly for Ramona, and return to Summer Days,reassuring that there may be more reprises yet to come. A bit to much filler with the covers but a great rendition of Why Try, made his own and sung beautifully, and Autumn. If I don't emphasize that I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I would be remiss. Always great to breathe the same air, thankful for one more chance to see the show, and hoping for just one more. Jo

Ive been nothing but wrong for the last few tours G/T so I just copied most of BCB's picks that way if it all goes wrong this time we know who to blame lol Looking forward to a review from Jo and you if you've decided to get yourself a ticket.I'm listening to the Massey Hall show from April 1980 titled The Born Again Music and it's wonderfully passionate.I could never understand why people went to these shows just to boo Bob for his beliefs, when the music is fantastic. The backing singers are incredible too. This has to be one of my very favourite bootleg releases,I just cant get enough of it.I also have it on DVD with the title Blood of the Lamb and that's amazing to watch too. I think it was professionally filmed and recorded with the view to releasing it as a live album but it was never released by Columbia so God Bless those bootleggers they made some pretty good stuff but they can only record whats going on onstage so God Bless Bobby and his great band too.Good luck all

Thanks for letting me know I missed a pick, Jo. Getting old really sucks! I also succumbed to peer pressure (can B6 and BCB both be wrong?) and changed my joker pick.

Hi Jo thanks for the email, I checked my picks and the one I missed was the zero points group.Looking forward to another tour on the road with Bob and you guys. Another top 10 finish would be good but maybe its our turn to finish top!I hope you enjoy your date with Dylan Jo and you too GT if youre going?

And BCB has only 19 picks, but I can't find which group he's missing. You may wish to check . . .

Calling GT: You seem to have missed a pick for song group 16. Long and wasted seems to be the consensus, or consider dont think twice or another, just don't miss the chance.

One single song kept me up last time around. I've filled in a new form for the American early summer tour, and I hope that he shakes things up a little so that scores aren't too predictable and only down to one or two songs.

It's more of the same and with the Scots leading the way. Could it be a mild passage or another wild ride? Jo

Sorry I havent been around much, I've been moving house and I'm sure you all know what that's like! Another Top Ten finish for Jo and the Boys well done all .... and Meinhard gets extra plaudits for keeping us up there this time. The Golden Bob is your's for another tour. Yes G/T I would say it's well worth getting yourself a ticket to see Bob this tour. Although Im not a fan of the Triplicate/Sinatra stuff he still gave us a great night in Glasgow. Bob's vocals were excellent and the setlist was great too I must admit I even enjoyed some of the covers he did. Maybe Im just stuck in my ways but the highlights for me were all Dylan originals "To Ramona" (which Ive loved since the first time I ever heard it) "Desolation Row" (I never tire of this one either) and "Thin Man" but it was also nice to get a live debut but I had no idea what that song was lol The band are as always just fantastic and Bob looks amazingly fit for his age. So yes G/T go grab yourself a ticket I enjoyed the show and I'm sure you will too.

Top ten finish. Seems like we have been there before. M keeps the Golden Bob. Probably just as wel - would have cost a bundle to ship all that trophy to Detroit. Thinking of getting tickets for a gig in Ontario. How about it B6, is it going to be worth the trip?

We're 15 points apart. Let's see what happens. But remember: it's a team sport. We're still in the top 10. - I'm hoping for some changes in the last couple of shows, but it's not very realistic. I'm just happy that Desolation Row is being played every night. A lot of good songs in there.

Looks like Meinhard doesn't plan on giving up the Golden Bob. I had a spot already for it but starting to look like it's not heading my way after all.

I've had a good run with "Stormy Weather." I'll head over to Dime and get myself a copy of it.

I've now become a weight around your ankles. Let's hope that changes. But 2nd all over is not bad.
