Audio: Bob Dylan at Town Hall, 1963 — an amazing concert

Earlier this year Johanna’s Visions did a great post about Bob Dylan’s April 12, 1963 concert at Town Hall in New York.

However, only some of the songs were posted.

The concert — 23 songs plus a poem — was an amazing one. Hopefully Sony will release it as a Bootleg Series recording in the near future.

Meanwhile, between this post and Johanna’s Visions, you can get a listen to the concert.

  1. some great versions here notably Tomorrow is a long time/masters of war/Blowing in the wind.The overall performance still a bit hit and miss falling short of the consistent excellence of the later CARNEGIE HALL show but still great to hear.
