The Bootleg Series, Vol. 4: Bob Dylan Live, 1966: The “Royal Albert Hall Concert”

Just a little while ago, I related my experience at the local EvilStarbucks cafe located inside of the local EvilBarnesandNoble. It was weird, and a little depressing.

Yea, well last night I’m thumbing through the newspaper’s Arts insert and I come across an ad for an upcoming performance of a native New Hampshire singer/songwriter. He’ll be playing at some place called “Blackbird Books & Cafe”. I stared at this ad for a good minute or so. Yep, it’s a bookstore. Yep, it’s a cafe. Yep, it’s in my town. I was not hallucinating.

The wife comes home not long after this and I show her the ad. Her response was, “I’ll get my coat”.

It’s everything we could ask for (speaking as true book-a-holics). I picked up Arundati Roy’s God Of Small Things (which has been on my “to be read” list since last summer), and the Bob Dylan bio Bob Dylan: Behind the Shades Revisted. Took ’em home, popped in the second disc of the Zabriskie Point soundtrack, and had myself a good time.

As Mike Meyers’ Dieter character used to say, “I’m as happy as a little girl“.
