Video: Bob Dylan Sings ‘Forever Young,’ ‘With God On Our Side’ – Oakland, CA, Dec. 4, 1988 – Full Set

Dylan, Oakland, 1988.

Bob Dylan performing at the Oakland Coliseum, December 4, 1988.

SOme months ago I posted a link to where individual clips of these songs could be seen, but today I’ve got a clip of the whole set.

He was performing at a benefit for the Bridge School. G. E. Smith accompanies Dylan on acoustic guitar.

There’s an incredible version of “Forever Young.”

And it’s great to hear Dylan sing “San Francisco Bay Blues” just across the bay from San Francisco.

The entire set is great.

[I just published my rock ‘n’ roll/ coming-of-age novel, “True Love Scars,” which features a narrator who is obsessed with Bob Dylan. To read the first chapter, head here.

Or watch an arty video with audio of me reading from the novel here.]
