November 20: Bob Dylan live at Harvard Square Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts 1975

bob dylan cambridge 1975

….this concert is filmed, with three songs appearing in Renaldo and Clara: “It Ain’t Me, Babe,” which appears on the promotional EP as well, “Just Like a Woman,” and “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door.” It is a relatively intimate venue with just 1,850 capacity; and the whole Revue responds with a particularly fine show. Before the concert, a scene is filmed of Sara Dylan as a hitchhiker being picked up in a Rolls Royce. Again, this is not included in the film.
~Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995)

Yet another wonderful Rolling Thunder 75 concert.

  1. thanks for posting this stuff; it is so great to hear dylan from the mid-70s to the mid-80s, when he was arguably at a peak. his intensity is magic.
