"Are you a fan of joy?"
Totally awesome, but as Andrew said "as opposed to the nights when it's a bad setlist?"
Cat's In The Well
It Ain't Me, Babe
Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again (Close second for favourite)
Girl From The North Country
High Water (for Charlie Patton)
Just Like A Woman (Kind of funky, possibly better than album version)
Rollin' And Tumblin'
Tryin' To Get To Heaven
Highway 61 Revisited (Personal Favourite of the night)
It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) (Point at which I couldn't help wondering if those giant "incense" blowing smoke machines were in fact only that. We were pretty much on the verge of being hot-boxed and as far as I could tell no one around us was lit up)
When the Deal Goes Down
Thunder On The Mountain (Point at which the dude behind had most clearly come to enjoy his LSD and began manic nerdy dancing)
Like A Rolling Stone
All Along The Watchtower (Just plain brilliant.)
To be fair, he probably could have played All Along the Watchtower on the Kazoo and I would have thought it was brilliant.
OK, I'm having all sort of video problems apparently, so I'll work on fixing them and get back to y'all real soon.
PS: Yes that is his Oscar that you can make out faintly on stage with him.
"He got the Oscar for best original song for the movie Wonder Boys for 'Things Have Changed', and anyone who didn't know that has to move down one seat so that I can get closer to the centre of the stage." - me
