Bob Dylan 70 - The Bob Dylan Story At 70 - 4. Episode 4

BOB DYLAN 70 - THE BOB DYLAN STORY AT 70 - 4. EPISODE 4 (320kbs-m4a/136mb/59mins)
BBC Radio 2 broadcast: 1st July 2016

Another chance to hear Kris Kristofferson's profile of his friend Bob Dylan.

During 1967, while The Beatles release Sgt Pepper and The Velvet Underground, Pink Floyd and The Doors are making their album debuts, Dylan rests at home in Woodstock as he recovers from his motorcycle crash of the previous summer. He records 150 songs at nearby Big Pink, a house rented by The Band, a handful of which would become the first bootleg recordings in rock history - The Basement Tapes. In 1968 he releases the country-tinged John Wesley Harding, his first studio album in almost two years, then he returns to Nashville to make an album with Johnny Cash. He performs alongside George Harrison and Ringo Starr at the Concert For Bangladesh. His 1973 album Planet Waves pleases the critics, but next Blood On The Tracks would send them into ecstasies and introduce Dylan to a whole new audience.

The programme features interviews with Tom McGuinness, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Robinson and Bob Geldof. Plus, narrator Kris Kristofferson remembers the time he spent with Dylan in Durango, Mexico making the film Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, for which Dylan wrote the classic Knocking On Heaven's Door.
