The Best of Bob Dylan concert footage from in 1966 – 48min video

All my songs are protest songs. All I do is protest. You name it and I’ll protest against it.
–> Bob Dylan (Press Conference, London, England – May 3, 1966)

Statement from Swingin’ Pig (editor):
Here’s a compilation project of Bob Dylan footage I spent a few weeks editing. Sources I pulled from were “Eat The Document,” “No Direction Home,” as well as others. I overdubbed all of the footage with soundboard recordings released on “The 1966 Live Recordings.”

Johnny Cash sings 7 Bob Dylan songs

I love Bob Dylan, I really do. I love his early work, I love the first time he plugged in electrically, I love his Christian albums, I love his other albums.
~Johnny Cash

From wikipedia:

John R. Cash (born J. R. Cash; February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and actor. Much of Cash’s music contained themes of sorrow, moral tribulation, and redemption, especially in the later stages of his career. He was known for his deep, calm bass-baritone voice, the distinctive sound of his Tennessee Three backing band characterized by train-like chugging guitar rhythms, a rebelliousness coupled with an increasingly somber and humble demeanor, free prison concerts, and a trademark all-black stage wardrobe which earned him the nickname “The Man in Black“.

As an intro, here is a nice video where Bob Dylan talks about Johnny Cash:

October 24: Bob Dylan – 10 great live versions of “One Too Many Mornings”

The song ultimately benefited from two of the man’s best electric arrangements, on the highly charged 1966 and 1976 tours. On the latter tour it also acquired a brand-new coda that suggested faults on both sides: ‘You’ve no right to be here / And I’ve no right to stay / Until we’re both one too many mornings / And a thousand miles away.’ Its inclusion in the set, at a time when Dylan had reached much the same point in his relationship with wife Sara as he’d reached with Suze in October 1963, suggests its return to favour was no coincidence. Subsequent performances, which have tended to be (semi-)acoustic, suggest it is a song Dylan can plug his inspired self into at will, as anyone who caught performances at New York’s Beacon Theatre in October 1990, or at the second Supper Club show in 1993, can readily testify.

Bob Dylan: 5 Brilliant live performances from the year 1998

I’ve found a different audience. I’m not good at reading how old people are, but my audience seems to be livelier than they were 10 years ago. They react immediately to what I do, and they don’t come with a lot of preconceived ideas about who they would like me to be, or who they think/ am.

Just Like A Woman

Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Ev’rybody knows
That Baby’s got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls
