|The Other Side Of The Mirror
Few performances in history are as legendary - or as controversial - as Bob Dylan's 1965 appearance at the Newport Folk Festival. In a single, galvanizing instant, Dylan plugged an entire generation in, forever changing not only the way the music was made, but the way it was heard. By putting you in the audience for Dylan's Newport performances from 1963 through that pivotal set in 1965, Academy Award®-winning director Murray Lerner's The Other Side Of The Mirror captures Dylan's metamorphosis from the folk family's best-kept secret to rock's fiercely confrontational poet who would electrify an entire nation and become the voice of his generation.

BOB DYLAN: DONT LOOK BACK--65 TOUR DELUXE EDITION is the ultimate
look at Bob Dylan’s concert tour of England in the spring of
1965--one of the most intimate profiles of an artist ever put to
film. This definitive set includes the remastered classic film by
D.A. Pennebaker, a brand-new, hour-long look at Dylan, and the
original 168-page companion book to the film. More than just a

and one of the poet-musicians whose words and songs defined it.

Summary Documentary filmed during Bob Dylan's 1965 English concert tour. Includes portions of performances.
The film was first shown publicly May 17, 1967, at the Presidio Theater in San Francisco, and opened that September at the 34th Street East Theater in New York.
Dont Look Back has been available on DVD for several years. It was digitally-remastered and re-released on DVD February 27, 2007. The two-disc edition contained the remastered film, five additional audio tracks, commentary by filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker and Tour Road Manager Bob
Neuwirth, an alternate version on the video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues", the original companion book edited by D.A. Pennebaker to coincide with the film's release in 1968, a flip-book for a section of the "Subterranean Homesick Blues" video, and a brand new documentary by D.A. Pennebaker and edited by Walker Lamond called Bob Dylan 65 Revisited. The DVD packaging was also given new artwork.
Plot Outline A chronicle of Bob Dylan's strange evolution between
1961 and 1966 from folk singer to protest singer to "voice of a
generation" to rock star. Plot Synopsis: Portrait of an artist
as a young man. Roughly chronological, using archival footage
intercut with recent interviews, a story takes shape of Bob Dylan's
(b. 1941) coming of age from 1961 to 1966 as a singer, songwriter,
performer, and star. He takes from others: singing styles, chord
changes, and rare records. He keeps moving: on stage, around New
York City and on tour, from Suze Rotolo to Joan Baez and on, from
songs of topical witness to songs of raucous independence, from folk
to rock. He drops the past. He refuses, usually with humor and
charm, to be simplified, classified, categorized, or finalized:
always becoming, we see a shapeshifter on a journey with no
More information about the soundtrack
Columbia recording artist
Bob Dylan's No
Direction Home: The Soundtrack - The Bootleg Series Vol. 7
will arrive in stores August 30th on Columbia/Legacy. This latest
edition in the critically acclaimed "Bootleg Series" is
the companion soundtrack to the two-part feature-length film,
Direction Home: Bob Dylan, a Martin Scorsese picture. The
film will make its U.S. premiere on the Public Broadcasting System's
"American Masters Series" over the course of Monday and
Tuesday nights, September 26-27th, respectively.
The two-CD chronologically
sequenced package contains 28 Bob Dylan tracks -- 26 of them
previously unreleased -- comprised of rare private recordings, live
concert, television and festival recordings, and 12 alternate takes
of songs from his Columbia LP recording sessions in New York and
Nashville during this period. The songs range in time from 1959 (a
high school recording of "When I Got Troubles," most
likely the first original song he ever recorded), to 1966 (alternate
takes of "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat" and "Stuck
Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again" from the Blonde
on Blonde album recording sessions, as well as "Ballad
of a Thin Man" and "Like A Rolling Stone" from the
legendary 1966 UK tour).
Many of the songs or tracks
are introduced in the film for the first time in history, or are
representative of times and places covered in the film, while others
are alternate takes of classic tracks that were unearthed during the
making of the film. For example, the version of Woody Guthrie's
"This Land is Your Land" performed in 1961, at the
intimate Carnegie Chapter Hall in New York City, was never known to
have existed on any tape until now.
On the other hand, the No
Direction Home film version of "Mr. Tambourine Man" is
taken from the Newport Folk Festival, July 1964; while the CD
version presents -- for the first time -- the first complete take of
the song with Ramblin' Jack Elliott, recorded at Columbia Studios
the month before. The track is then followed on the CD by
"Chimes of Freedom" from Newport '64.
Archivists and researchers
reviewed more than 400 hours of recordings by Bob Dylan in the
preparation of "No Direction Home." The two CDs will be
packaged with a 60-page color book housed in a slipcase. The book
will include separate liner notes written by Andrew Loog Oldham, and
Al Kooper who sheds light on the Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde
on Blonde recording sessions in New York and Nashville (for
which he played organ and served as musical director). An
authoritative track-by-track delineation is also included.
The first feature-length
film biography ever produced on the artist, "No Direction
Home" is narrated in its entirety by Dylan. In addition to
hours of black-and-white and color archival footage and photography,
it features exclusive interviews with Joan Baez, photographer John
Cohen of the New Lost City Ramblers, Allen Ginsberg, Tony Glover, Al
Kooper, Bruce Langhorne, Paul Nelson, Suze Rotolo, Pete Seeger, Dave
Van Ronk, Izzy Young of the Folklore Center, and many others.

Direction Home: The Soundtrack
notes - The CD is called The Soundtrack, but it is not the
same material as on the film. As noted in the liner notes,
"The compilers of this collection used the songs in the
film as a reference point, finding alternate takes, rare live
recordings, and unreleased tracks that amplify the pivotal sequences
in the film and avoid duplication with previously released
tracks." It is similar in nature to the first edition of The
Bootleg Series Vol. 1-3.
flow of the CD offers a good historic flow of Dylan's early career.
I enjoy Dylan's post folk material more so I tend listen to the
second disc. The renditions included are generally completely
different than the released versions, and are quite good. A majority
are from Highway 61 Revisited,
Blonde on Blonde, and
several songs feature The Band.

||Muddy "Mississippi" Waters Live
Waters' catalog is vast. There are some early acoustic treasures in
the style of Robert Johnson. Though, their output differs in that Muddy's
classic early Chess recordings used additional support; bass, piano, etc.
Also, Muddy's material included instrumental breaks, but Johnson's
Moving along, there are storied Chess studio
electric recordings, his work that Johnny Winter produced, and lots of live
treasures, among other gems.
Muddy Waters' The Chess Box set is highly
recommended. I find that his numerous single or the two disc release, The
Anthology, leave essential material off due to the length
limitations. They do satisfy smaller appetites. Additionally, The
Chess Box. has
some really good material that is not available elsewhere or is very
rare, specifically, some outtakes from the Bill Broonzy sessions on
disc 2 and some gems on disc 3 from 1963. This
is a really well done release.
