Bob Dylan & Paul Simon
'Boys in The Bubble' - 1999 Tour Compilation
Various venues and locations

Audience recordings, varying quality - overall good sound quality

Continuing with the series of collaborative concert tours, here's one that goes back to 1999, and the teamong of two of the greatest and most iconic of the singer-songwriters that emerged from the 1960's, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. The teamed up for a concert tour in 1999. And although the format was more of normal sharing of a double bill (each performs separately, then do a few songs together) then the more truly collaborative and intertwined efforts we have featured recently, this compilation tries to combine and intermingle their show as if they did perform more together. This coleection from 2011 by Blindwilly compiles songs from throughout the tour (as well as a couple related songs from previous tours - Dylan doing Simon songs), but presents them with alternating Dylan and Simon performances, and interspersing their few coo-performed songs throughout. Although the combined performance songs are really nothing special (odd even, as Dylan trying to song harmony is off-putting, and Simon trying to sing harmony against Dylan's meandering vocals is an adventure too), it is nonetheless a unique opportunity to hear these two songwriting giants performing together. A strange but certainly enjoyable experience.
