I might be able to attend, I'm hoping that I can. Does anyone have an idea of what they might show based on the last two Archive outings? I would've loved to have seen that '76 Tangled Up in Blue footage. I'm thinking they might show some of that Infidels studio footage.

Dylan Archives I (2016)

“Man Of Constant Sorrow” and “Girl From The North Country.” Television performances from 1963 and 1964, respectively.

“Chimes Of Freedom.” On which Dylan seems particularly delighted, from the 1964 Newport Folk Festival.

“Maggie’s Farm.” Hard-driving and electric, with Mike Bloomfield on lead guitar, from the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.

“Tombstone Blues.” An acoustic performance from an afternoon workshop of the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. The song was still unfinished at that point – Dylan didn’t have a chorus yet – and so he just sang the verses.

“Ballad Of A Thin Man.” Filmed by documentary film maker D.A. Pennebaker during a 1966 tour of the British Isles, for “Eat The Document.” Dylan sits at the piano throughout, and Pennebaker’s camera remains fixated on him. At times, Dylan raises his left hand to make dramatic, emphatic gestures as his right hand continues to play. Members of The Band backed Dylan on that tour, though only bassist Rick Danko is, at times, visible; Garth Hudson’s organ riffs, though, which echo Dylan’s vocals in a call-and-response manner, are prominently featured in the mix.

“Shelter From The Storm.” From the 1976 TV concert special “Hard Rain.”

“Isis.” An outtake from Dylan’s 1978 movie “Renaldo and Clara” (filmed in 1975): A raging performance. When the camera zooms in on Dylan’s eyes, they convey an almost crazed intensity.

“Pressing On.” A performance of the gospel song from a 1980 concert in Buffalo – again, filmed for a project that was never released. It was the show’s fervent, show-stopping finale: Dylan starts at the piano, then moves theatrically to the front of the stage before exiting, as his band keeps playing.

“Ring Them Bells.” Filmed at The Supper Club in New York in 1993.

“Love Sick.” From the 1998 Grammy Awards.

“Cold Irons Bound.” From the 2003 movie “Masked and Anonymous.”

Dylan Archives II (2017)

“Talking World War III Blues.” From the Canadian TV show, “Quest,” taped in February 1964. Dylan singing to a bunch of rugged guys sitting around in a rustic cabin.

“The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll.” From “The Steve Allen Show.” Filmed in 1964. Preceded by an interview by Steve Allen.

“Love Minus Zero/No Limit.” An outtake from D.A. Pennebaker’s “Don’t Look Back” documentary: A solo acoustic performance of the song, played in a London hotel room in May 1965, with Donovan and others looking on. The transformation that has taken place since the 1964 clips is incredible.

“It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry.” Just two months later (July 1965), Dylan is now in full-blown electric rocker mode in this performance from the Newport Folk Festival, buoyed by Mike Bloomfield’s muscular lead guitar.

“One Too Many Mornings.” A majestic performance from the 1966 European Tour with the band that would basically turn into The Band (featuring Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel). Danko (who sings backing vocals) and Robertson are visible at times.

“Hurricane.” A tight, focused performance of the then-new single from the Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975, with some great footage of violinist Scarlet Rivera.

“Tangled Up In Blue.” From Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins, CO, in 1976. The clip was made for Dylan’s “Hard Rain” television special but not included in it, perhaps because it’s such an eccentric performance. Dylan changes the song’s arrangement and tempo so many times he astonishes even his backing musicians, yet he never seems to lose touch with the song’s emotional thread.

“Blowin’ In The Wind.” A gospelly rendition from a 1981 arena show, with Al Kooper on organ.

“License To Kill.” A 1984 performance from “Late Night With David Letterman,” with just three other musicians: drummer Charlie Quintana and bassist Tony Marsico (both of the Latin punk band The Plugz) and guitarist J.J. Holiday.

“Weeping Willow.” The best performance from The Supper Club recordings in New York, in 1993. Dylan never performed the Blind Boy Fuller song before or after this night.

“Once Upon A Time.” From 2016 TV special, “Once Upon a Time – Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best Is Yet to Come.”
