Bob Dylan Live 1966
The Bootleg Series Volume 4 Bob Dylan Live 1966 is sub titled The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert whereas in reality it was recorded at Manchester Free Trade Hall. Yet another example of that London's oneupmanship .
This is the somewhat infamous album with Bob singing solo and acoustic on the first set and then playing an electric set along with The Hawks.
At the time the first half was warmly received by the audience with the second half being widely criticised with heckling from the audience
It contains the legendary Judas heckle at the end of Ballad of a Thin Man before the band launch into Like a Rolling Stone.
Music was never the same again.
The album first crossed my radar following a brilliant documentary by Andy Kershaw leading to it's immediate purpose.
Two songs - one acoustic, one electric
Bob Dylan - Visions of Joanna (Live 1966)
Bob Dylan - Ballad of a Thin Man (Live 1966)
