Bob Dylan - 1966 World Tour: The Home Movies
Rare footage of the World Tour where Dylan traded in his acoustic guitar for an electric sound. With a set of drums and an 8mm color home movie camera, Mickey Jones toured the world in 1966 with Bob Dylan and The Band. He filmed 'The tour that changed Rock and Roll forever' and the booing crowds, scathing reviews, stomping feet, and infamous catcall of 'Judas!' in response to Dylan trading in his acoustic folk guitar for an electric. Now, drummer-turned-actor Mickey Jones, with Director Joel Gilbert, chronicles the legendary 1966 Bob Dylan World Tour through his recently discovered home movies. This updated release includes new, exclusive interviews with Charlie Daniels, Johnny Rivers, Trini Lopez, soundman Richard Alderson, and new insights by Mickey Jones.
