Bob Dylan during the 1974 tour. It's still okay to do birthday tributes.

In honor of Bob Dylan's 70th (ouch!) birthday, here's a concert recorded during his legendary 1974 tour he did featuring The Band. It's the early show, recorded February 11, 1974 in Oakland.

This concert has been around the collectors circles for a while, but if you aren't familiar, it gives a pretty good taste of what the early-mid 70's period of live Dylan was like.

Here's the list of what's on:

Bob Dylan & The Band
Feb. 11, 1974
Oakland Flood
Oakland, CA.

Early Show:

Most Likely You Go Your Way
Lay Lady Lay
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
Rainy Day Women #12 & 35
It Ain't Me Babe
Ballad Of A Thin Man
Stage Fright *
Night They Drove Old Dixie Down *
King Harvest *
When You Awake *
Up On Cripple Creek *
All Along The Watchtower
Ballad Of Hollis Brown
Knockin' On Heaven's Door
The Times
Just Like A Woman
Gates Of Eden
Don't Think Twice

The sound is a little awkward in places, mostly because it's an old tape and the mix doesn't settle down for a bit. But it's a good concert and a nice tribute to one of the most enduring and iconic figures in Popular Music of the later 20th century.

Birthday Week continues . . . .
