The Old Forge (Wednesday 21st August 2019)
After last week's preparations, much progress was made today for Gardening Wednesday, as this Blip shows. Refna reduced the forsythia and the other plant that has spread from the other side of the garden, turned the soil over and added new from the composters, cleared an area, re-sited two composters, and planted in new hydrangeas and veronicas in a spot that should now get enough light. As always there is more to do, including moving some shrubs, but the change today is already quite dramatic. The Extra shows another view.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Bob Dylan - Tell Me, Momma (Live At The Royal Albert Hall) (recorded live, Royal Albert Hall, London, 26 May 1966)
I've been slowly working through the 36 CD box set of Dylan's infamous 1966 tour with the Hawks (later to become the Band). Each night he would play a well received acoustic set on his own and then alienate a hostile folk crowd with his electric rock and roll in the second half. The set list never changed, and, with the exception of Paris, he rarely spoke to the audience, occasionally answering hecklers. The tour concluded over two nights at the Royal Albert Hall, of which this, which opened the electric half throughout the tour, was the first. I heard this today - just one more night left to hear.
It was recorded for a potential stereo live album by CBS, along with a couple of other nights (the rest were mono soundboard recordings), which never materialised at the time. Tell Me, Momma was never attempted in a studio and was not performed on subsequent tours.
