Magic evening with Bob Dylan last night at the Royal Albert Hall.
The songs from Tempest sounded great live, climaxing with Long and Wasted Years which brought everyone to their feet. Other highlights included Pay in Blood and a highly emotive Forgetful Heart, which seemed to have the entire audience in an awed silence.
This must be about the tenth time I’ve seen Bob Dylan. It really is a privilege, as Christopher Ricks said, to be alive at the same time as the great man.
