The next release from the Bob Dylan archives series is ‘The Complete Budokan 1978’.

Dylan performed five concerts at the Budokan in Tokyo, Japan in 1978 on February 28 and March 1,2,3 and 4. Highlights of the shows as the 1978 live album ‘Bob Dylan at Budokan’, released on 21 August, 1978. The recordings of both the 1978 live album and the new 2023 expanded edition are from the February 28 and March 1 shows only.

The February 28 performance features the rare performance of a Roland Janes track ‘Repossession Blues’. Dylan only ever performed the song twice, at the February 28 concert in Tokyo and a few days earlier on 24 February in Hirakata, Japan.

Roland Janes was a Memphis guitar player. Janes recorded for Sun Records from 1956 to 1965 and was a regular session guitarist for Jerry Lee Lewis and Charlie Rich.

A recording of Dylan in the studio from 1978 is on YouTube.

On the four other nights at the Budokan, Dylan performed a different song, Tampa Red’s ‘Love Her With A Feelin’.

Tampa Red (Hudson Whittaker) was a Chicago bluesman. In 1940, he recorded the first known recording of ‘It Hurts Me Too’. He recorded ‘Love Her With A Feelin’ in 1950. Red’s wife died in 1953. He became an alcoholic after her death and never recorded again. His died in 1981. Red was one of the most prolific recording artists of his time recording a total of 335 songs including 251 between 1928 and 1942.

Bob Dylan – The Complete Budokan 1978 will be released on Friday, November 17.
