Paul should tour like Dylan

Postby jgkojak » Mon Dec 20, 2010 3:10 pm

I have said it before...

Paul should take a page from Dylan's book and play two set lists (Dylan alternates set lists). He should also play songs from a wider variety and depth of his catalog.

Here is a recent Dylan set list... and the equivalent song from Macca's catalog:
*Equal in terms of how familiar it is and time of career, not lyrically or musically

1. Watching The River Flow (Bob on keyboard)
Too Many People

2. Girl Of The North Country
(Bob on guitar, Stu on acoustic guitar, Tony on standup bass)
I've Just Seen a Face

3. Things Have Changed (Bob on guitar)
Vanilla Sky

4. To Ramona (Bob on keyboard, Donnie on electric mandolin, Stu on acoustic guitar)
I'll Follow the Sun

5. High Water (For Charley Patton)
(Bob on keyboard and harp, Donnie on banjo)
The World Tonight

6. Spirit On The Water (Bob on keyboard)
Only Mama Knows

7. The Levee's Gonna Break (Bob on keyboard)
Highway

8. I Don't Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met)
(Bob center stage on harp)
Things We Said Today

9. Cold Irons Bound (Bob on keyboard and harp)
Calico Skies

10. A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall (Bob on keyboard)
And I Love Her

11. Highway 61 Revisited (Bob on keyboard)
Day Tripper

12. Can't Wait (Bob center stage on harp then keyboard at the end)
Flaming Pie

13. Thunder On The Mountain (Bob on keyboard)
House of Wax

14. Ballad Of A Thin Man (Bob on center stage on harp)
Getting Better

15. Like A Rolling Stone (Bob on keyboard)
Hey Jude

16. Jolene (Bob on keyboard and harp)
Honey Hush

17. All Along The Watchtower (Bob on keyboard)
Get Back

As you can see a much more interesting/diverse set list - though interestingly, Bob ignores most of his work from '73-'97 - same as Paul.

I follow you! But it would be a short concert compared to the ones he is doing now

Well - Dylan's songs tend to be a little longer than Paul's -- of course he'd add to that!

Last time I saw Dylan live (5 or so years ago) you could not even recognize his songs, let alone understand the words.

Yeah, Dylan's pretty unique in how he performs his stuff these days - I think that's where how he's impressed by Paul and his abilities (they're pretty much the same age) came from.

Here's Bob... I can name that tune in... 47 notes?
(By the way - Dylan's the best next to Paul/Beatles - I'm a huge fan, so I can make the joke)

Paul tries to play his songs just as they were recorded. Maybe he shouldn´t care so much about that!
