    50 years ago, Bob Dylan silenced the crowd

    Ain't it funny how time slips away?

    This video commemorates the day, fifty years ago, when Bob Dylan first silenced the crowd of the Newport Folk Festival with a performance of "North Country Blues". It is amazing to think it has been this long.

    I remember it all too. I remember the precise night that I first heard Bob Dylan on the radio. A friend had told me about him, that he sounded a lot like Woody Guthrie and Ramblin Jack Elliot but that he wrote his own songs and he was really really good!!!

    I became a huge fan and saw a number of live performances and followed him for many years.

    I have just spent the morning listening to other Dylan recordings. Thank you for bringing him to our attention.

    I have also seen Dylan a few times, best being in 78 just after Street Legal was released. His last good album IMO. How I would have LOVED to have seen him in the 60s, he was at his best then. I love his really early Guthrie inspired recordings
