"It Ain’t Me, Babe" (live) by Bob Dylan & The Band

Slick production can be the death of a good Rock & Roll record.  Greil Marcus saw a couple shows from this tour, and listened to bootleg tapes of other shows; he was impressed with the “brash and unruly performance” of Bob Dylan & The Band, but worried, “It’s possible none of this will survive on official vinyl.”  He then offered a piece of advice you’d expect to find tattooed on Billy Childish’s chest:

"If you insist on getting perfect stereo separation when you record an earthquake, you may produce a more professional product, but it won’t sound like an earthquake."
