the bob dylan cutting edge boxset - and rich hall

I'm currently still trying to work my way through the 18 cd version of the latest Bob Dylan boxset 'The Cutting Edge', which, for a sad geek like me is 100% enjoyment, as it features some of his best work (1965-66). Sadly, l've only got the cds, not all the packaging and extras, but l'm living in bliss street at present.
Rather like The Rolling Stones (amongst others), I'm slightly obsessed by him and his music, but have no great desire to listen to any of his current releases, and especially don't want to go and see him live these days, as l'd rather remember him when he was good. And when he was good, he was very good indeed.
Here's one of my favourite comedians, Rich Hall's view on the current Dylan live shows, something l wholeheartedly agree with.

As a flipside, here's Dylan when he was special. A live version of 'Tangled up in Blue' from the 'Desire' album.
