Dylan & Petty

Hard to Handle (1986)

*** (out of 4)

Bob Dylan, backed by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers during their Australian tour. Highlights include the rousing acoustic versions of Girl From the North Country and It's Alright Ma as well as rocking versions of Like a Rolling Stone. Other highlights include the highly underrated I'll Remember You and Lenny Bruce. I wish Columbia would give this an official release here and include a full 2 1/2 hour show (instead of the 1 hour here).

It's time Columbia opened their vaults and started to release more of Dylan's concert videos. We have a great collection of live CDs so they should bring one of these shows out as part of that series and a new DVD line.
