Note

There was nothing fancy about Sydney Stadium, as the local name, the Old Tin Shed, would indicate, but it was the only place that had the capacity  to put on shows. It was roughly circular and had a a mechanical revolving stage  in the centre which swept 90 degrees after each song. This explains some of Bob's remarks ... while the stage moves around! It got so hot inside that Bob nearly passed out in temperatures over 40o C.

 

BobTalk

Er, I'm going to move everybody over there a little bit, so I guess it's wait, you'll have to wait until it gets there. [laughs] This is called The 4th Time Around.

Tell me when I get there. This is called Visions of Johanna. OK?
[Bob hits the microphone] Just a minute! Ha! I'll be there in a minute. Huh? OK. Just ... touch me when we're there, ha. (before It's All over Now, Baby Blue)

I'll see ya in fifteen minutes. (after Mr. Tambourine Man)

This is called-a I Don't Believe You. It used to go like that and now it goes like this. [heckler]: Hey, Bob! Turn the drummer off! [Bob aside] What? Yeah. It's brand new people though. (before "I Don't Believe You")

This is, this is called Tom Thumb. This story takes place outside of Mexico City. It begins in Mexico City and it ends really in Des Moines, Iowa, but it’s all about this painter, he’s a quite older fellow, he comes from Juarez, Juarez is down cross of Texas border, some few feets, and he’s a painter. He’s very very well-known painter in the area there and we all call him Tom Thumb and when Tom Thumb was going through his blue period, this is one of the most important times of his whole life and he’s going to sell many many paintings now taken from his blue period and this is all about Tom Thumb and his early days and so we name this Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues. [someone in the audience: “Hard Rain, Bob!”] Isn’t that right. Hard rain. Hard rain!! Reall!!, One, two.

This one's called-a Yes I See You've Got Your Brand New Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat.

[heckler: Hard Rain!!] Hard rain? I wish I saw some hard rain last night. Hard rain. Hard rain, I feel no pain, ha. I'll be coming back tomorrow again ... [heckler: Far out!]  Is that alright with you now? (after "Ballad of a Thin Man")

Thank you very much, you're very kind. Thank you, thank you very much. Thanks.

Notes

This concert is runoured to have had a rare encore.

The recording was, like most audience recordings from this time, done with a Revox reel-tape recorder. The reason this tape is so fragmented and incomplete is that the taper just wanted to use one side of his tape, because he had a Beatles concert recording on the other side! Since this was in the days before The Great White Wonder, members of the band helped him to set up his stuff on the stage!

Incomplete audience mono recording, 45 minutes.

It doesn’t mean a thing now, but they’re all poets, you understand, if it comes out that way, it comes out that way, but, all poets you know.This song here is dedicated to The Taj Mahal. Now, we’re gonna leave after this song and I wanna say goodbye to all of you people, you’ve been very wo.. very people, you know, I …, you’ve been very nice people. I mean, here you are sitting in this great, huge place. And believe me, we’ve enjoyed every minute of being here! (before Like A Rolling Stone)
