Audio: Bob Dylan & The Hawks at the Royal Albert Hall, May 26-27, 1966 – ‘She Belongs To Me,’ ‘Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat’ & More

Bob Dylan concluded his 1966 world tour on May 27, 1966 at the Royal Albert Hall.

He played two nights in London, May 26 and May 27.

Between the two nights, I’ve got audio of most of the songs below. I’m only missing “Tell Me, Mama,” “I Don’t Believe You” and “Baby, Let Me Follow You Down.”

These recordings are actually from the performances at the Royal Albert Hall — unlike the bootleg that circulated for so many years and was eventually officially released.

There’s a version of “She Belongs To Me” from each night to start things off.
