Bob Dylan: 1963-65 DVD


Available October 30, 2007

Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings will release on DVD, for the first time in any format, The Other Side Of The Mirror - Bob Dylan Live At The Newport Folk Festival 1963 - 1965, on Tuesday, October 30. A long-awaited event for Bob Dylan aficionados, The Other Side Of The Mirror brings together more than 80 minutes of exquisitely filmed performances, 70% available here for the first time, drawn from three seminal years in the artist's ever-evolving career.

Produced and directed by Academy Award winner Murray Lerner (From Mao To Mozart: Isaac Stern In China), The Other Side Of The Mirror - Bob Dylan Live At The Newport Folk Festival 1963 - 1965 opens a window into a critical epoch in American cultural history as reflected in the musical transformations of Bob Dylan's galvanizing watershed performances at the Newport Folk Festival in 1963, 1964, and 1965.

"This is a different kind of film, in a sense, from what I usually make," said Murray Lerner. "We decided on no narration, no pundit interviews, no interviews with Dylan. Nothing except the experience of seeing him... That to me is exciting. Just the clear experience gives you everything you need."

The DVD includes liner notes from Grammy-winning author Tom Piazza.

Show some respect dude! This DVD looks more than interesting - it looks like a visual documentation of arguably the greatest festival ever with the greatest songwriter ever performing. His voice was never that of Sinatra, and it's certainly continued to decline. But that's what's great about Bob Dylan. Even the virgins know the voice, however bad it may be now or at other times throughout his career, and then they learn to appreciate the lyrics.

I'll definitely buy this and try to pretend Newport didn't happen 15 years before I was born.

Oh, and Modern Times freaking rocks! Long live Dylan!

I absolutely agree with you linsbee 314. Bob is one of our nations greatest lyricists of all time and he's still around to enlighten us. That's COOL! Just think what a Dead show would have been like without Dylan's lyrics. So many of the covers that they did were written by Mr. D himself! Oh yeah...and Modern Times is one of the better albums by anyone in the last few years. Diggit?

Holy shit!! This is remarkable!! If I'm not mistaken, this is THE Maggie's Farm, where Dylan gets booed for using an electric band!! Talk about a revolutionary moment in American culture...

And now I can own it on DVD. Technology never ceaces to amaze me.

I'd also like to add that what an artist decides to pursue is his own choice. I'd hate for him to put out a piece of shit just because his fans want it. It's his art. Whether that entertains you or not is your preference.

and I like his surreal style more than the more straight folk sound

i was @ dylan in bloomington, il at the US Cellular Coliseum the last weekend (10/20/07). the show was amos lee (with band), elvis costelo (solo, acoustic) & dylan & his band. i also was the only one dancing in the entire building until the last 5 songs of dylan's set. the show was great but the venue was beyond ridiculous. we were on the floor in the second to last row on the end. during amos lee i stood up in front of my chair and started to bounce. security came over and told me to sit down so they could get people in to their seats, i reluctantly agreed and sat down. then set break then elvis; everyone got up, clapped and set back down, except me and my friend. about halfway through the set security came back over and told us that we were obstructing the view of the people behind us. not wanting to get into an incident i was pulled back into my seat. so dylan finally comes on and it's the same situation; stand up, clap, sit back down. a couple songs in he starts don't let that deal go down. at this point i'm getting mad at the whole situation and decide that i paid as much as everyone else and i'm going to have a good time. so i get up and start bouncing again when not 1 minute later a uniformed cop comes up to me and says "you've been warned twice already. if you continue to dance i'll take you out of here and downtown." i asked him if dancing at concerts was illegal and he forcefully told me "sit down and enjoy the show." thankfully once one of the old electric tunes started, i think maggie's farm, more people got up to dance and a small group got together behind the soundboard. while we were over there we saw a kid get taken out in handcuffs for smoking a cigarette, bloomington is a no smoking town.

other than that the music and people were great. can't wait to see dylan again.

This will be great. Talk about classic footage. Emmylou Harris said it best: "Even if you don't like Dylan, you love at least one artist who does". Long live The Bard.
