1.             INTRODUCTION

1995 proved to be yet another high profile year for Bob Dylan in terms of released products, TV appearances and live performances. 116 concerts make this the year with most played concerts ever, even topping 1978.

The consistently excellent quality of the live performances won high praise from fans and critics alike.

Released products included the MTV Unplugged both as audio and video, the interactive CD-ROM Highway 61 Interactive, Greatest Hits Volume 3 as enhanced music CD.

The thing really missing was a new record with new Dylan songs or at least some new songs played live, and a long over-due change of the touring band, which when the year ended had backed Dylan on exactly 300 shows.
