Yes, Chile usually does that to you

9 May 1974
Friends Of Chile Benefit
Felt Forum, New York City

Quoting "Behind the shades" by Clinton Heylin (Penguin Books, UK 1991):
"Unfortunately Bob Dylan arrived for the show well ahead of time, and passed the hours by drinking wine and chatting with old friends like Dave Van Ronk, Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie. By the time he took the stage for his brief 15-minute set he was virtually legless - literally - and the performance remains probably the most excruciating of all his many guest appearances..."

I think i'll pass on the download.

Anyway, speaking of Chile, the military regime report i'd mentioned in this post is currently available here. Spanish language and lots of patience with .pdf files required.
