'Dream Dylan' includes folk singer's reunion with Mike Bloomfield
BBC Radio 2 is to broadcast a “virtual” live [b]Bob Dylan[/b] concert next month.
The concert is to feature rare performances spanning 39 years of Dylan’s performing career; including four never-before-released recordings of songs never heard outside of the arena in which they were originally played.
The [b]Dream Dylan Concert[/b] will include 11 rare live performances recorded between 1962 and 2001. Tracks include ‘Maggie’s Farm’ in 1965, ‘L[b]ike A Rolling Stone[/b]’ in 1974 and the Oscar-winning ‘Things Have Changed’ recorded in 2000.
The ‘virtual’ concert will also include Dylan’s reunion with guitarist [b]Mike Bloomfield[/b] playing ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ and ‘Groom’s Still Waiting At The Altar’ in San Francisco in 1980 – they had last collaborated in 1965.
Three months later Bloomfield took a drug overdose and was found dead in his car, aged 37.
Radio 2 is the station which airs Dylan’s weekly show ‘Theme Time Radio Hour’.
The Dream Dylan Concert will air on Radio 2 on October 6 at 8pm.
