The Bootleg Series Vol. 4 - Bob Dylan Live 1966
by Bob Dylan
Released: Oct 1998
The first disc is a historical snapshot of Dylan's acoustic set during his '66 tour: solo with an emphasis on newer fare rather than older protest anthems. Good stuff -- but it's on disc two where things get heavy. This is the infamous Judas fiasco, yet misguided indignation from the crowd ultimately takes a back seat to Dylan and his backing group (who would morph into The Band) inventing a new rock 'n' roll: harder, slower, meaner and way more lathered in feedback than anything previously heard. We wouldn't get another chance to hear this Dylan until the Rolling Thunder Revue a decade later.
