"Judas!" Leads to 36-CD Box Set from Bob Dylan
I'm not a fan of live albums. Most are a disappointment.
Either the sound quality of the recording is horrendous or the sound system used couldn't adequately reproduce the artful effects created in the studio.
The same goes for the live shows themselves. I'm often left wondering if the artist has any true talent or not.
Today's youth doesn't seem to mind one way or the other. A live show is simply a spectacle, filled with computer-generated music and/or half-clad dancers.
They don't even seem to mind if the artist is lip-syncing. The thrill is just being there.
Ironically, it appears that recent Pulitzer Prize Winner Bob Dylan has brought us full circle.
