On March 23, The Museum of Television and Radio in NYC will host a symposium on Bob Dylan entitled, “1964: The Times They Are A-Changin’.” The event, presented by public radio station WFUV, will focus on Dylan’s landmark 1964 concert at Philharmonic Hall – including the historical context of the show and the times leading up to it. The panel, moderated by WFUV’s Rita Houston, will include noted author Dave Marsh and singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell. The restoration of the historic concert recording will also be discussed.
On March 30th, Columbia/Legacy releases Live 1964: Concert at Philharmonic Hall – The Bootleg Series Volume 6. The double CD will be the first official release of an all-acoustic Bob Dylan concert. The concert’s 19 tracks show Dylan at the peak of his powers. The show took just two months after the release of Another Side of Bob Dylan – his last acoustic record before the electricity of Bringing It All Back Home.
