AND CLARA __________________________________________________________________
THE DOCUMENT is a film written and directed by Bob Dylan (assisted
by D. A. Pennebaker) detailing the tumultuous and historic 1966 tour
of Europe with the Hawks [the Band] where he was booed and reviled for
leaving his acoustic music behind and "Going Electric." The
movie includes concert footage, practice sessions, drug usage, and a
very real sense of despair. It was originally shot for ABC-TV, but rejected
as "unairable" by the programming experts. Besides footage
from the Band [and a young Robbie Robertson], the film includes Dylan's
rare moments with Johnny Cash and John Lennon. (50 min)
DYLAN PRESS CONFERENCE 1965 is the full live session [60 minutes],
held in December in San Francisco upon his return from the "Judas"
[his Going Electric] European Tour. Dylan is asked about everything
from being booed by audiences to his favorite contemporary rock band.
The conference swings widely from whimsical to explosive to introspective.
The press audience includes Bay Area journalists plus poet Alan Ginsberg
and owner of the FILLMORE,
Bill Graham [pic above, right].
ALBERT HALL is rare footage (1966, 20 minutes) of Bob Dylan's comments to
the audience during the final concert of his controversial 'Going Electric'
European tour. He addresses the onslaught of negative press attacks and
responds to a heckler in the audience.
1964 TV SPECIAL is the complete Quest Broadcast of The
Times They Are A-Changin', a studio concert directed by Daryl
Duke. This program, shot in January 1964, is one of Bob Dylan's last fully
acoustical performances before working with the back-up band, the Hawks
[the Band] and his new rocking electric sound. Originally aired on CBC
Television. Performance songs include Talkin' World War III Blues,
Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll, A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall,
The Times They are A-Changin' plus more. [30 minutes]
