Last night’s show in Lorca, Spain

Thanks to Gerald Bamford for phoning in his report on Dylan’s 4 July gig at the Plaza de Toros in Lorca, SE Spain:

“Lovely show tonight in Lorca. The bull ring on a hot evening was the perfect venue. Great atmosphere, smashing crowd of people - clearly still high from winning Euro 2008 the other night.

“My highlights in a strong performance were Ain't Talkin' and Blowin' In The Wind, which had such an unusual intro that I struggled to identify it at first, though I must have heard a hundred or so versions.”

“Hoping to get to the Jaen show tomorrow. Don’t forget to pick me up at Luton Airport a week on Sunday!”
