Thread Name: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
Will, I think the quality of his voice on earlier recordings is great. But live, I've been VERY disappointed by it on 2 of the 3 occasions I've seen him. Once he was great.

Little Hawk: The last time I saw him was in the mid-80s, when he couldn't seem to hit *any* notes. Or at least, not any notes that were in the chords that he or his band were playing. And he mumbled so badly that the words of his songs were inaudible. Which was a big disappointment to me as it's mainly the poetry of his lyrics that I listen to him for.
