I tried to find the NewPort Folk Festival version of this song because that was the part of the book that this song came from. Liz went to NewPort where Dylan did his infamous electric set that almost got him booed off the stage. His electric version of this song was what made everyone shut up and listen. After he finished it, he walked off the stage only to return at the insistance of the crowd and do Mr. Tambourine Man. Remember the second video I posted on here? Yeah, that was Dylan coming back. Judging by the sounds of harmonicas hitting the stage, one can assume that the crowd forgave him his folkie sin. He was the first to bring electric sound to the folk music scene and while it still isn't typical and it didn't exactly start a trend, this song is testament to how well it could work at times. I also find this song to be prophetic. Think about it. He did this song in 1965 and if you listen to it, it perfectly sums up the times five or six years later when Frisco went from being a Utopia to being a place of drugged out nightmares that people seemed almost unable to escape. I'm not sure what Dylan's trip was at the time but maybe it made him just a little psychic.
