Video/Audio: Bob Dylan’s Full 1965 Newport Set – ‘Phantom Engineer,’ ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ & More

Bob Dylan at Newport, 1965.

OK, so we know this day, 49 years ago, was historic. Bob Dylan going public with his new electric rock ‘n’ roll sound.

We all know the story. We all know the different versions of the story.

What remains amazing is the music.

On Saturday July 24, 1965 Dylan played a workshop and did three acoustic numbers. I’ve got “All I Really Want To Do” and “Love Minus Zero/ No Limit” from that workshop, and then all the songs from his evening performance on July 25, 1965.

Here Dylan rock out through “Maggie’s Farm,” “Like A Rolling Stone” and “Phantom Engineer,” an early version of “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry.”

This music will be as alive as anyone until humans are no more.

What a gift that we can hear this music today.

Awesome Early ’60s Bob Dylan Photos Get Show in South Haven — See the Photos Now!

Bob Dylan and John Sebastian at Village Cafe in Woodstock, New York in 1964. Photo by Douglas R. Gilbert.

In 1964 Douglas R. Gilbert got the once-in-a-lifetime assignment to photograph Bob Dylan up in Woodstock, and elsewhere, for Look magazine.

Look never ran the photos, but now they will be exhibited at the South Haven Center for the Arts at 600 Phoenix Rd, South Haven Charter Township, MI 49090.

You can see four of them here.v

But the mother lode is at Gilbert’s website, where you can view 46 of the photos right now!

There are superb photos of Dylan with Allen Ginsberg, John Sebastian, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and Sally Grossman — wife of Dylan’s manager, Albert Grossman — who was later in the cover photo for Bringing It All Back Home.

Here’s what’s on Gilbert’s website about the photos:

In July of 1964, one year before his music changed from acoustic to electric, I photographed Bob Dylan for LOOK magazine. I spent time with him at his home in Woodstock, New York, in Greenwich Village, and at the Newport Folk Festival. The story was never published. After reviewing the proposed layout, the editors declared Dylan to be “too scruffy for a family magazine” and killed the story.

Some of the photos were used for The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6: Bob Dylan Live 1964, Concert at Philharmonic Hall.

And they appeared in the excellent book: “Forever Young: Photographs of Bob Dylan‚ by Douglas R. Gilbert.”
