Another Self Portrait (1969-1971): The Bootleg Series Vol. 10

Biography

BOB DYLAN Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Dylan Store

Editorial Reviews

The Bob Dylan In Concert - Brandeis University 1963 concert tape was discovered recently in the archives of the noted music writer and Rolling Stone co-founder Ralph Gleason, where it sat on a shelf for more than forty years. "It had been forgotten, until it was found last year in the clearing of the house after my mother died," said Toby Gleason, Ralph's son. "It's a seven inch reel-to-reel that sounds like it was taped from the mixing desk."

Drawn from two sets that spring night at the Brandeis Folk Festival, tracks on Bob Dylan In Concert - Brandeis University 1963 include "Honey, Just Allow Me On More Chance" (incomplete), "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues," "Ballad Of Hollis Brown," "Masters of War," "Talkin' World War III Blues," "Bob Dylan's Dream," and "Talkin' Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues."

Previously available as a limited time offer, Bob Dylan In Concert - Brandeis University 1963 is being reissued in response to overwhelming popular demand for a wide release. The new Columbia/Legacy edition features liner notes penned exclusively for this release by noted Bob Dylan scholar Michael Gray, author of The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia and the three-volume Song & Dance Man: The Art of Bob Dylan, provided an explication of the album's seven songs and historical/cultural context for the performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Dylan in Concert at Brandeis University a treat November 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD
47 year old concert recording shows Dylan as the young serious and serio-comic artist.

I didn't expect much from the Bob Dylan bonus CD of Bob Dylan in Concert at Brandeis U in 1963. Surprisingly it is more interesting than The Original Mono Recordings.

First, the concert has never been heard before so it is new to the ear.

The concert was on a tape held by Rolling Stone co-founder and music critic Ralph Gleason. "It had been forgotten, until it was found last year in the clearing of the house after my mother died," says Ralph's son Toby Gleason. "It's a seven inch reel-to-reel that sounds like it was taped from the mixing disc. A collector/dealer associate of the family said `This might be worth something to the Dylan office' and we sold it to them last year." (Rolling Stone mag)

Second, it shows Dylan is fine form and good humor. It struck me almost immediately how much he liked to pull the audience's collective leg.

Three of the seven songs are laced with his humor and sarcasm, Talking John Birch Paranoid Blues, Talking World War III Blues, and Talking Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues.

The same humor permeates the lovers appeal in Honey Just Allow Me One More Chance.

Talking World War III Blues is still funny and works better before a live audience

Dylan's timing on delivering the lines is priceless. Back then some people said he was affecting a Little Tramp persona on stage and you can hear it.

Where did Dylan's sense of humor go? You won't get that free and easy manner at concerts these days, nor for decades. There are a few sly hints on Modern Times but nothing as boldly humorous.

Too bad. Dylan was a natural comedian and his wit was cutting and quick.

This is a worthwhile, well-recorded live disk showcasing very early Dylan. If you buy "The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964 (The Bootleg Series Vol. 9) (Amazon.com Exclusive Bonus Edition)," the 2-CD box set includes this live Brandeis University Concert as a free third CD. Be sure to order the Bonus Edition rather than the standard version.

These recordings from a Brandeis University folk concert in 1963 were recently discovered at the home of the late Ralph J. Gleason, famed music critic for the San Francisco Chronicle and cofounder of Rolling Stone magazine. The seven songs clock in at 38 minutes: "Honey Just Allow Me One More Chance" (incomplete), "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues," "The Ballad of Hollis Brown," "Masters of War," "Talkin' World War Three Blues," "Bob Dylan's Dream," and "Talkin' Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues." Bob plays guitar and harmonica.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brandeis University 1963 October 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I ordered the Bootleg Series Vol.9 The Whitmark Demos so I could get this CD.
I was not disappointed. Dylan's searing rendition of "Masters of War" is worth the price of the disc.
Actually, this whole disc is excellent. Sound quality is pristine. Sound board quality. Slight echo.

4.0 out of 5 stars As a Completists..... May 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
....you will want to own this. It starts off ugly, joining the first song in progress, and giving you only 2 minutes until it's conclusion. After that, 6 more songs which was probably Dylan's primary song list at the time, ending with the dated Talking Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues, not the most exciting of songs to end on. BUT, when you look back at this discs' place in history, a fledgling young man with harmonica and guitar, who could have been just another student, but instead would become the voice of a generation, then it is an essential artifact of the time. Well worth the small amount charged for this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A snapshot of Dylan before he was famous August 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD
This disc is a must for anyone who likes Dylan's early music. This was recorded by the music critic, Ralph J. Gleason, at the Brandeis University Folk Festival back on May 10, 1963 and was forgotten about in a box until a collector found it in 2009 after Gleason's death. The sound quality of the disc is excellent and seems like it was recorded just yesterday.

This show was recorded just a few weeks after "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" was recorded but still a few weeks before it was released. Peter, Paul, & Mary had not yet released their version of 'Blowin' in the Wind', either, so Dylan was still unknown to the general public and still hungry as an up-and-coming performer. It's just amazing to listen to the crowd's response as most of them listened to him for the first time back in the folk movement of the early 1960s.

His first set begins about one line into 'Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance' and continues into 'Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues', which was somewhat of a controversial song at that time as it made fun of the hard right-wing fear of communism that had been so common and taken very seriously in the mid 20th century. Dylan then launches into an early, solid rendition of 'The Ballad of Hollis Brown' that silences the audience, not that they were very loud or raucous back then anyway. Dylan holds them in rapt attention with the raw honesty and intensity of his writing and playing that ultimately made him into a superstar and changed a generation and even the course of history. With the audience on the edge of their seats and eager for more, Bob plays a powerful, righteous version of 'Masters of War' that totally blows the entire crowd away.
