Bob Dylan Sings Once Upon a Time at the 90th Birthday Celebration for Tony Bennett
Two of Bob Dylan's recent albums, Fallen Angels and Shadows in the Night, are all adult standards with none of his compositions. Since he appeared in a tribute concert Tony Bennett, I thought that he would chose a song on one of those two albums. Instead he picked a song titled "Once Upon a Time" which was recorded by Tony Bennett. Ironically, Like a Rolling Stone starts out saying "Once upon a time."
I think the segment with Dylan was pre-recorded and not done at the Radio City Music Hall with the rest of the show. Elton John appeared from Las Vegas, but nothing was said about where Dylan's song was recorded.
