Bob Dylan is Singin’ on Sunday

We ran something a couple of months ago that reflected our sensibilities. We figured we owe equal time to the master.

Bob Dylan – Subterranean Homesick Blues

This is a segment from D. A. Pennebaker’s film, Dont Look Back (a documentary on Bob Dylan’s tour of England in 1965). In the film, Dylan holds up cue cards for the audience with words from the song on them. While staring at the camera, he flips the cards as the song plays. Interestingly, there are intentional errors throughout the video. For instance, the song’s lyrics say “eleven dollar bills,” but the poster says “20 dollars”. The video takes place in an alley behind The Savoy Hotel in London where poet Allen Ginsberg makes a cameo appearance.
