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

Bob Dylan, Michael Bloomfield at Newport, 1965.

OK, so I’ve posted this landmark set before, but someone just uploaded most of it again yesterday so why not give it another listen.

This never gets old for me.

This was Bob Dylan’s first public electric performance (OK, of course he played rock ‘n’ roll as a teenager, but after he started making records as a folk singer, this was the first electric show).

This took place on Sunday, July 25, 1965.

Here’s audio for the set opener, “Maggie’s Farm”:
