BobTalk

 

This ones called New Orleans Rag, you'll find out why. I'll try to remember all the verses for you. At one time this was very long. But …. I don't think it will be quite that long tonight. I'll try to see what I can put in it though.

 

Red wing. It's reform school. Don't have no high school football teams though or nothing like that. No cheer leaders.

 

This is for all the boys who know girls who want them to go out and get themselves killed. (before Hero Blues)

 

If you …., want to know about the abolishment of boxing I would ask Miss Benny Kid Paret or Mrs. Davey Moore before I asked Cassius Clay. Just a personal tendency there. (before Who Killed Davey Moore?)

 

I believe in the ten commandments. The first one is I am the Lord thy God. It's a great commandment if it's not said by the wrong people. So here's this is called Masters of War.

 

This is a carnival song, fairgrounds. I just want to speak about it. (before Dusty Old Fairgrounds).

 

I have a poem here. It's not a poem its ahh. This is the first concert I played alone in New York, really. An a fellow in Brooklyn State Hospital, his name is Woody Guthrie. But err Woody is more than a folk singer. He's really something else more than a folk singer an err there's this book coming out that's dedicated to him. An they asked me to write something about Woody. like what does Woody mean to you in 25 words. An err I couldn't do it I wrote out 5 pages an err I have it here. I have it here by accident actually. But I'd like to say this out loud. So this is my feelings towards Woody Guthrie. Cannot really be told in err how many records of his I buy, it's a lot more than that actually. So if you can roll along with this thing here this is called Last Thoughts On Woody Guthrie.

Talk

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with pleasure, that we present the young lady that Look magazine recently [adjudged?] the greatest Folksinger: Miss Joan Baez. (Announcer before Joan Baez sings Oh Freedom)

I’m gonna sing you another song that Bobby Dylan wrote, and the only thing this is protesting is a love affair, that went on too long. It’s called "Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right". (Joan Baez)

For some of you, who don’t … (inaudible) … For those of you, who don’t know anything or much about Bobby Dylan. He is sort of, what I would call, a phenomenal young man, who’s been writing songs, beautiful songs, beautiful poems, beautiful stories, anyhow he wrote that one and it just so happens that he came here with me tonight and he’s gonna come and sing a couple of … (Joan Baez, then applause followed by an inaudible conversation between Baez and Dylan).

This is a song called Only A Pawn In Their Game and that’s what it’s about.

 

Notes

This is an engineer’s acetate which showed up on eBay with no assigned dates or locations.

It is a compilation from various events.

Locations are not known.

Dates are not known, but sometime prior to 30 July is most likely since Only A Pawn In Their Game is in the key of  B which Dylan stopped using after 30 July.

The suggested date 17 August 1963 at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium is therefore most unlikely.

Bob Dylan talks during the start of A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall (inaudible …”last time”). Joan Baez joins in the last line of each verse.

A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall runs at a very different speed than the other circulating songs so is from a different show.

BobTalk

Here's a song I wrote it’s about a friend of mine an it's called Percy’s Song. An I took the tune from a song that a folk singer by the name of Paul Clayton sings. Called the Wind And The Rain.

 

I wanna sing one song here recognizing that there are Goliath's nowadays. An err people don't realize just who the Goliath's are but in older days Goliath was slayed and everybody looks back nowadays and sees how Goliath was. Nowadays there are crueler Goliath's who do crueler crueler things but one day they gonna be slain too, An people 2,000 years from now can look back an say remember when Goliath the second was slain. (before When The Ship Comes In).
