This interview for the Canadian Broadcasting Company by Martin Bronstein is quite amazing. During the 11+ minute interview Dylan says that his breakthrough song was “Like A Rolling Stone” and explains why.

He also says some very funny things.

Worth a listen.

Video: Bob Dylan Plays ‘Girl From The North Country’ & Others On Canadian TV – Feb. 1, 1964

Fifty years ago on February 1, 1964 Bob Dylan did a 30 minute performance at CBC Studios for Canadian TV. He appeared on a regular program called Quest that ran between 1961 and 1964 and focused on the arts.

Dylan’s show was called “The Times They Are a-Changin’” and produced in Toronto by Daryl Duke. It aired on March 10, 1964.

What you get here is Dylan in his prime folky protest mode. His voice is great, the performances are terrific and the songs are superb.

Dylan performs:

1 The Times They Are A Changin’
2 Talkin’ World War III Blues
3 Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll
4 Girl From the North Country
5 A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall
