My 2nd concert of the Summer turns out to be Bob Dylan, who made a surprise appearance in Monterey. We don't get many legends here, so for $75 I jumped at the chance.
It was a good concert, but I'm still trying to figure out why it wasn't a great one. Dylan was in typical form. Gargling his way through a set filled with mostly classics, yet light on "hits". So we got "To Ramona" but not "Lay Lady Lay", or "Positively 4th Street", it was that kind of set list.
Dylan goes from one song to the next, played for 1 hour 45 minutes, and only talked to the audience once to introduce the band. And he only played guitar once, the rest playing an organ.
Then it was over, "Like A Rolling Stone" the last song of an encore. The audience reaction was they wanted to hear more of the Popular Dylan and less of the catalog Dylan.
I agree with the sentiment. But this was a Bob Dylan concert. Never expect the expected.
