Recorded on the 40-show January and February 1974 Dylan/Band reunion tour coming on the heels of Dylan’s hit album Planet Waves (also backed by The Band), this live set was a high-profile comeback for both sides of the bill. While virtually all the songs here were familiar and might be considered "hits," few of them sound similar to their original versions; Dylan’s songs in particular are re-arranged and sung with a ferocity not found on the originals.

The Tour

The 40-date, 21 city tour began on January 3rd, 1974 and ended on February 14th, 1974. His first full-fledged tour since 1966, it received an enormous amount of coverage from the music press, and it would prove to be very profitable. Top-dollar tickets were $9.50, an extravagant sum in 1974, and the tour received 5.5 million pieces of mail, applying for up to four tickets each. According to Clinton Heylin, it's estimated that $92 million worth of checks and money orders were sent in by close to 4 percent of the American population.


The first show took place at Chicago Stadium in Chicago, Illinois, and it was witnessed by an audience of 18,500. The first song performed was "Hero Blues," an obscure, previously unreleased song that Dylan recorded back in 1962. Over the course of two hours, Dylan and The Band performed alternating sets broken down into three categories: Dylan performing his own songs backed by The Band, Dylan's solo acoustic performances, and The Band's performances of their own songs. There was one attempt at including Dylan into The Band's set, when Dylan played harmonica during a performance of "Share Your Love With Me," sung by Richard Manuel. Though the performance was executed without mistakes in front of an appreciative audience, after the show, Dylan and The Band decided not to include Dylan in any more of The Band's performances. The Band. ... The Band. ... The Band. ... The Band. ... Richard Manuel (April 3, 1943 – March 4, 1986) was a Canadian musician and songwriter probably best known for his membership in The Band. ... The Band. ... The Band. ...


Beginning with the next concert, the tour took on a standard formula: an opening six-song Dylan/Band set, a five-song Band set, three more Dylan/Band performances, a five-song Dylan acoustic set, a three to four song Band set, and a joint finale.


At the beginning of the tour, a few songs from Planet Waves were performed in concert, but as the tour wore on, these songs gradually disappeared from the setlist. By the end, only "Forever Young" would remain. Songs like "Hero Blues" and "Nobody 'Cept You" were also performed at some of the earlier shows, but such idiosyncratic choices would eventually disappear as well. Dylan's older, celebrated compositions were already heavily favored in the setlists, but as the tour wore on, they would completely dominate the shows. As Nat Hentoff would write, "Dylan's sound and beat are of the past...the gestalt is anachronistic."


Dylan and The Band were very aware of the nostalgic atmosphere surrounding the tour, even as they recast Dylan's back catalog in dramatic, new arrangements. However, there were moments where contemporary events did connect with the proceedings. The Band. ...


When the tour first began, the Watergate scandal was dominating the headlines. One of the most popular songs on the tour was "It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)." Performed during Dylan's solo acoustic sets, it never failed to elicit cheers when Dylan got to the words, "Even the President of the United States sometimes must have to stand naked." The Watergate Complex as depicted in Government Exhibit 1. ...


Towards the end of the tour, Dylan and The Band made a stop at Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California. Dylan would write in his tour diary that, though he felt the Oakland shows went fairly well, he had done them on little sleep. Meanwhile, Dylan's performances became less and less restrained, and Dylan would later acknowledge this in an interview taken in 1980. "When [Elvis] did 'That's All Right, Mama' in 1955, it was sensitivity and power. In 1969, it was just full-out power. There was nothing other than just force behind that. I've fallen into that trap, too. Take the 1974 tour. It's a very fine line you have to walk to stay in touch with something once you've created it...Either it holds up for you or it doesn't." The Band. ... McAfee Coliseum is a stadium located in Oakland, California that is used for football and baseball games. ...

Before the tour even began, a live album release was already planned. It's not clear how many shows were professionally recorded, but a substantial number of them were. When it came time to compile the album, most of these recordings were taken from the final three shows at the L.A. Forum (now known as the Great Western Forum) in Inglewood, California. The Great Western Forum, known in Los Angeles simply as The Forum, is an indoor arena in Inglewood, California. ... Inglewood is a city located in Los Angeles County, California, United States. ...


Dylan's wife, Sara, was present at those final shows, and during the final show of the tour (which took place on Valentine's Day), Dylan broke from the standard setlist to play Sara's favorite song, "Mr. Tambourine Man." Accompanied by Garth Hudson on accordion, it was the song's only appearance on the entire tour. It would not be included on Before the Flood. Valentines Day postcard, c. ...

Aftermath

The shows were received with great enthusiasm, but Dylan would later claim to have hated every minute, though most evidence suggests this to be an exaggerated claim. Regardless, Levon Helm echoed those sentiments, writing in his autobiography that "the tour was damn good for our pocketbooks, but it just wasn't a very passionate trip for any of us." Mark Lavon Helm, a. ...


A modest commercial success (it peaked at #6 before falling down the charts), reviews for Before the Flood were generally positive as critical consensus was strong enough to place it at #6 in The Village Voice's Pazz & Jop Critics Poll for 1974.

The Pazz & Jop critics poll is a highly influential poll of music critics run by The Village Voice newspaper. ...


"At its best, this is the craziest and strongest rock and roll ever recorded," wrote critic Robert Christgau in one of the more generous reviews. "All analogous live albums fall flat. The Rolling Stones are mechanical dolls by comparison, The Faces merely sloppy, the Dead positively quiet. The MC5 achieved something similar by ignoring musicianship altogether, but while The Band sounds undisciplined, threatening to destroy their headlong momentum by throwing out one foot or elbow too many, they never abandon their enormous technical ability. In this they follow the boss. When he sounded thin on Planet Waves, so did they. Now his voice settles in at a rich bellow, running over his old songs like a truck. I agree that a few of them will never walk again, but I treasure the sacrilege; Uncle Bob purveying to the sports arena masses. We may never even know whether this is a masterpiece." Christgau graded the album an A. Robert Christgau (sometimes abbreviated in print to Xgau), born April 18, 1942, is an American essayist, music journalist, and rock critic. ... The Rolling Stones are a British rock group who rose to prominence during the 1960s. ... The Faces were an early 1970s rock band formed from the ashes of The Small Faces after Steve Marriott left to form Humble Pie; new members Ron Wood (guitar) and Rod Stewart (vocals) joined Ronnie Lane (bass), Ian McLagan (keyboards) and Kenny Jones, (drums). ... The MC5 was a rock music band that came out of Detroit, USA in 1966, and was an important precursor of and influence on punk rock (see protopunk). ... The Band. ... Planet Waves (1974) is an album by Bob Dylan, and was recorded with The Band at Village Recorder in Los Angeles during three different sessions in November 1973. ...


Though album sales were somewhat modest, ticket sales proved to Dylan that his commercial prospects were still strong on the road. Furthermore, his critical status was once again growing after years of minimal activity. Things would dramatically improve with his next release.

Before the Flood (3069 words)
Barros cites a comparison of two similar floods along the Mississippi, one occurring in 1908 and the other during 1973, which showed that despite similar amounts of rainfall and nearly identical conditions, the 1973 flood resulted in downstream water levels that were eight feet higher.
A large-scale flood is a complex event, the result of a rare confluence of dynamic factors.
Accurate forecasting of large-scale floods would require not only precise climatic modeling (and we know how difficult it is to predict the weather), and precise hydrological modeling, but a precise meshing of the two.
Before the Flood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (531 words)
