Monterey...Woodstock...Bangla-Desh...Live Aid...all gatherings of music royalty that were cultural milestones. Add "Bobfest" to the list: a 1992 tribute concert to Bob Dylan held at Madison Square Garden. Onstage that night were Eric Clapton, members of The Band, Byrds and Rolling Stones, Richie Havens, Stevie Wonder, George Harrison, Johnny Cash, Lou Reed, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty, Neil Young, and many, many more, plus of course, Bob Dylan himself.
A couple of months ago, a deluxe two-disc edition DVD of the concert was released -- a great way to travel back in time (how young everyone looks!) and relive this momentous evening. It's obvious that the 80s were still lingering with all the big hair and bright colors, but the music is what really matters. You'll hear timeless numbers like "Masters of War," "Blowin' in the Wind," "The Times They Are A-Changing," "Just Like a Woman," "Absolutely Sweet Marie," "You Ain't Going Nowhere," and the grand finale, with everyone on stage to pay tribute to one of the 20th century's most important artists. A must for music fans!
