BOB DYLAN: The Ghost Of Electricity (1965)

I am fucking knackered (19+ hour days) so I am making this Saturday's post (and, most likely, Sunday's also)  about 15 minutes prematurely....

Decent bootleg collection of Dylan's infamous "electric" period, commencing with his 1965 appearance at the Newport Folk Festival, through the Hollywood Bowl & onto Berkeley.

The infamous '66 ElectricTours are well documented & bootlegged, though these are a little more obscure... Search this blog for a live Dylan masterpiece from 1966 - Manchester's Free Trade Hall///

Great title too - a famous lyric taken from "Visions of Johanna" (off his 1966 masterpiece double LP "Blonde On Blonde"). This'd be a great blog title, though I'm sure its already been used somewhere...

Download here...
