Bob Dylan -
S.I.U. Arena, Carbondale, IL;
October 28, 1978


I used 2 versions of the same source for this seed, a low gen version, and a higher gen version.

While the low gen version had better sound, it was incomplete (missing Changing Of The Guards) and ran a bit slow.

The higher gen version was complete and ran at the correct speed, but had inferior sound.

So I speed corrected the low gen version by a factor of 98.4% and attached the missing last track.

One of the versions lists the taper as JTT.

Same recording as LB-1068
based on same brief talking at I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met) 2:2x.

This one has nothing above 21.5k.

Very similar sound in comparison except on Changing Of The Guards there is very little above 18k and sound is muffled and not as good.

Very close to mono.

Excellent sound [A-].

Bob Dylan,
Carbondale, IL

Compiler: Les Kokay

Not much above 18k like noise reduction used.

Probably same recording as LB-1068 based on similar clapping at end of Girl Of The North Country.

In comparison that has a fuller warmer more natural sound.

Very good to excellent sound [B+].

Thank you. This song is the story of my life.
(before Shelter From The Storm)

Thank you. All right. This is a song that kind of started it for me.
I played this at the Newport Folk Festival 1963. And they sent me out of town on a train.
Anyway, I hope you people are kinder. Anyway, I Ain’t Gonna Work On Maggie’s Farm No More.

We’re gonna take a break after this song, just to load up.
(before Señor (Tales Of Yankee Power))

Thank you. All right. You are a great looking crowd, you really are. I’ll take you to New York.
(after Where Are You Tonight (Journey Through Dark Heat))

Thank you. That was Masters Of War, that was Billy Cross on the lead guitar.

All right, thank you. That was All Along The Watchtower, that was David Mansfield on the violin.

Thank you. All right, ladies and gentlemen, on the drums tonight, give him a warm hand, Ian Wallace.
On the bass guitar, ladies and gentlemen, Jerry Scheff. On the keyboards, the one and only Alan Pasqua.
That's true, there is only one. On the lead guitar, oldest member of this group, born in 1921.
The man who taught me everything I know. Billy Cross. All right. I don't know too much though.
All right, on the rhythm guitar, a man who gave up a career as a sports car driver in Bogota, Colombia.
I brought him up north to play rhythm guitar in this group. He plays his heart out, don't you agree ?
Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Steve Soles.
On the mandolin and the violin, the youngest member of this group, he's fifteen years old, been with me five years.
Doesn't smoke dope, go out with women or drink whiskey, pure musician.
I'm not sure if that's good or bad. Anyway, David Mansfield.
All right, on the tenor saxophone, a man who used to play with Duane Eddy. Anybody here remember Duane Eddy?
All right, anyway, he used to play with Duane Eddy, played on many Phil Spector records. You must remember Phil Spector?
Anyway, on the tenor saxophone the phenomenal Steve Douglas.
Yeah. On the backup vocals tonight, three young ladies that make me sound so good.
Really, they all have a very distinctive style of their own, don't you agree ?
On the right is my old ex-girlfriend, Jo Ann Harris. That's why she's not my girlfriend. All right.
Anyway, In the middle is my current girlfriend, Jo Ann….. Helena Springs. And my fiancée on the end, Carolyn Dennis.
On the conga drums, from Detroit, the most amazing Miss Bobbye Hall. Right.
(before It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding))

All right, thank you. We're gonna get out of here now. Yeah. I wanna close with this song.
I wrote it for one of my babies. He's not a baby anymore, he's not here but I wanna play it anyway.
(before Forever Young)
