Bob Dylan - Dylan Speaks

The deluge of Dylan ephemera keeps a-washing over the land. This hour-long DVD of 1965’s Q & A session in San Francisco captures the 24-year-old rising star at his playful, combative best. “We’ve been booed all over by people,” says Dylan about the Newport debacle. “They must be pretty rich to go somewhere and boo.” Promoter Bill Graham and poet Allen Ginsberg are also in attendance and join the inquisition. As media circuses go, it’s less manic than Beatles press conferences but still highly entertaining and insightful.
