From: MX%"firstname.lastname@example.org" 18-DEC-1995 01:09:23.95 Subj: Dylan/Patti at Electric Factory (show 3, Dec. 17, 1995) Date: Mon, 18 Dec 1995 01:02:05 EST From: "Anthony J. Rzepela" <rzepela@XXX.XXXXXXXXX.XXX> And tonight's opener: 'land' (much cheering, joyous shouts of glee...) Other than that, the set list was identical to Saturday night's, so it works out thus: "land" "Dancing Barefoot" "Wicked Messenger" "Ghost Dance" "Walkin' Blind" "Southern Cross" "Rock and Roll Nigger" "Not Fade Away" In response to a request for "White Christmas", she began a traditional Xmas song segment climaxed with "...with Mother going to hell for shit to put under the fucking tree". :) Her "NFA" spiel tonight was a very careful and deliberate appreciation of the Brancusi exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum. In particular, she discussed a wooden piece which she said fulfilled the demand placed on the artist to make killing the tree worth it. Not a mumbled word in the number, and it was the most appreciated spiel yet. She included Jean Genet's name in "Rock and Roll Nigger", and opend her set by telling us that tonight (the 17th) was Genet's birthday. She also admonished us to say our Christmas prayers. (wince) Patti made a pretty severe sartorial move, too: for her onstage time with His Bobness, she donned a black velvet dress. For just that touch of waif, her T-shirt underneath was showing around her neck. :-) An extra "A million faces at my feet..." was added to the end of "Dark Eyes", and Bob visually motioned for Patti to go for it, which she did. :) For Bob's second encore, he dropped the traditional acoustic number and did "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", with Patti taking a verse and trying to stay in sync with the arrangement changes Bob has made to the chorus. For the most part, she kept to an underlying vocal mumble/singing under Dylan on the choruses. After her part was complete, she slowly slinked away, then drifted off closer and closer to the stage exit, her own dress becoming less distinguishable from the stage curtain, until she finally disappeared.
