Bob Dylan Bootleg Series Vol. 13 Trouble No More to be Released November 3

I just received an email from Isis, the Bob Dylan fanzine from England stating that Bob Dylan Bootleg Series Trouble No More will be Released November 3.  This represents the Born Again Christian period of Dylan which is not my favorite.  There will be a 2 CD version and a deluxe 8 CD version.  I just checked which states that the mp3 version can be pre-ordered.  Nothing yet was mentioned about the CDs.

Apple Strikes Again With a New Operating System

Today Apple released iOS 11 for the iPhone and iPad.  As the picture above indicates, the new operating systems enhances the iPad more.  I have an iPhone 6 with on 16 GB of memory.  If I download the update it would likely eat up all my disc space.  I decided to wait for a few months to get the new iPhone 8 with IOS 11 already installed.  Before you know it all the apps will need IOS 11 to operate making your old phone obsolete.

Take What You Need - A Collection of Dylan Covers by British Artists (1964-69)

I regularly read a Bob Dylan fanzine called Isis published in the U.K.  Very recently they announced a new compilation of Bob Dylan covers recorded from 1964-69 by British artists.  I listened to most of it before dinner tonight.  The versions seemed very mellow.  I never even heard of some of the artists on this CD.  I do recommend it for my Dylan enthusiast friends.

Record and CD Show on West 57th Street

For many years I have been on a mailing list for a record and CD show that takes place monthly at a hotel on West 57th Street.  Today we finally went to one.  It was a little smaller than I thought it would be and the selection was not the greatest.  The CDs we bought were either $1 or $3, so we didn't break the bank.  Here is the list of the CDs that we bought:

  • Neil Sedaka's Greatest Hits (best find)
  • Harry Connick Jr. - Come by Me
  • Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Bang Bang Bang
  • Kenny G - The Moment
  • James Taylor - New Moon Shine
  • Jose Feliciano
  • Crosby Stills, Nash - After The Storm
  • Bruce Springsteen - The Ghost of Tom Joad
  • Bruce Springsteen - Tunnel of Love
  • The Best Soul Album

Carole King Live At Hyde Park Live CD and DVD

Back in July I reported in this journal that we saw a special screening of Carol King Tapestry: Live in Hyde Park at our local multiplex.  Today I received a CD and DVD of this show from  Whenever one orders a CD from Amazon, the music is available from the Amazon Echo.  We listened that way while the package was sitting in our mailbox.  Right after dinner Lee went downstairs to retrieve this from our mailbox.

Bob Dylan's Never Ending Tour Will Come to Long Island in November and I'll Be There

At age 76 Bob Dylan keeps on going.  After a short break, the Never Ending Tour resumes this fall and will come to Long Island.  On November 8th he will appear at the Nassau Coliseum.  The pre-sale started today and of course, I got my tickets.  I hope to hear the Duquesne Whistle blow that night.  I must assume that he will sing some of the adult standards that appeared on his recent albums.
