Happiness from "Blood on the Tracks" - Bob Dylan Visited and Revisited - Better than Ever!

Bob Dylan...Boise... Last Night...  Outlaw Field Old State Prison... The best ever... Tight full sound... Audience participates   in songs ( Just Like A Woman)... Long solo (several times)Harp Full electric... Better than he has ever been... That's it ***** 5 Star the band electrified the field to an overpowering trance then Bob began to talk/sing... Opening song: Everybody Must Get Stoned - sung with Audience - so I did!
It was Vaudeville Electrified - Bob was the ringmaster/MC
A different Bob... Open and out front ( all the freedom and happiness of Blood on the Tracks - present last evening)

To a friend in Bejing, The Chairman MaoXian (originally from Cooperstsown, NY) :
 had the same feeling of Doubleday Park where I saw him 4 years ago he was just getting comfortable with his new sound -- This field was high in the back and lower toward the stage everyone had a great seat - the crowd had the feeling and size that Cooperstown had.  Just "where did the time go" - some people were standing, some sitting on the ground - the music - one song led into another - with an elevation of the electric sound in between they just wound up the whole audience....5 years ago Dylan criticized the "full room electric sound" last night he proved that he became a master in "full room electric sound" in the back of the field to the left was the Old Prison with 4 corner watch towers and to the right - Botanical Gardens of Boise - where smaller music venues are offered.  Boise is a Great Town. Although I still have the farm in Otsego County - I purchased a small home here in Boise... quite the town!  Hope all is well in Bejing...
