I was not a Dylan fan before I saw him. I went because, well it was a chance to see a living legend. I bought Free Wheelin' the week before the show so that I might know a song or two. This did nothing to prepare me for truly one of the best shows I have ever seen.
I have heard differing stories about shows though. He played Appalachian State University about a year before I got there and everyone who I talked to who had gone to that show said he was obviously drunk and incoherent.
At Spartenburg, he was coherent, his voice was crystal clear and the band he had backing him played with an energy that I have never experienced before or since.... I have been buying every thing I could when I have the money since then hoping to one day hear a Tangled up In Blue that is even remotely close to the version I heard that night.
