I’ve been meaning to post this for a few days. Last week the Patriot Ledger published a story about a “newly discovered bootleg recording” of two 1975 performances by Bob Dylan and Rolling Thunder Revue, in Plymouth of all places.
“The shows still stand as the most significant musical event in the town’s history,” writes the Ledger’s Lane Lambert.
I nearly went to one of those shows. I grew up in nearby Middleborough, and a few of my older friends saw Dylan. I don’t recall thinking it was any big deal at the time, but it certainly was.
