Bob Dylan & the Hawks - Hartford 30 Oct 1965 [FLAC] [bootleg]
I'm on a roll here it seems!
Today I bring you something a little different. Well, it's Bob Dylan so nothing different there but it's Dylan in his very early days, playing with a band, 'The Hawks'. which is actually 'The Band' as you will no doubt have heard before, only with a member missing and another added!
Go have a wee read here if you wish.
Further info on this recording is here and I highly recommend you go read it before downloading!
This is an audience recording and, as I just learned from that link, was recorded on a Woolworth's handheld tape recorder. Quality is not great. In fact it's not even 'good'.
It's distant, it's got noise, crackles and well ... don't be expecting to put this on CD and have a crystal clear sound. It isn't happening! Hehe.
However! This is great to listen to for many reasons.
The first being that you get the chance to sit in on a concert that would have been great to go to ... Dylan, in his formative years, singing some of those tracks that were bound to become huge and are now classics that we all know.
You can almost hear the songs taking shape before they grew into the songs we know today.
I wouldn't recommend a new Dylan fan to listen to this as they may not feel the magic that I feel when I hear it, but to anyone who is a fan and loves early Dylan, you MUST get this.
You will not be disappointed!
