The Never Ending Tour continues apace in Europe, courtesy the Crystal Cat label.
By Uncle Blurt
It’s a nicely timed overseas release that doesn’t compete with the recently issued Dylan box set or that loony interactive “Like A Rolling Stone” video— as our friends at CollectorsMusicReviews.com report:
“The first big release of Bob Dylan’s 2013 tour has been announced. From the hands of Crystal Cat comes Second Night At The Waterfront a recording from Dylan’s show in Stockholm, Sweden on the 13th of October 2013.
“A coy and unassuming pre-release from a source reads – ‘A new two CD set from the Crystal Cat label that will contain the complete performance from the concert in Stockholm on 13 October 2013, plus four bonus tracks from two other shows. This was the third show of the 2013 European tour, and sound quality should be up to same superb standard that this label is known for.’”
Indeed, the venerable Sweden-based transparent tabby bootleg label remains the gold standard – along with cohort Godfather – of contemporary bootlegs, particularly if you are a Dylan, Springsteen or Neil Young collector.
