Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995 ). Dylan, who would fly in from France on his private jet, would be supported by Santana and Geordie favourites Lindisfarne. Tickets for the show cost £11 and the turnstiles opened hours before the concert, for once hammering the touts and forcing them to sell at well below face value. Several of these tunes were recorded for Dylan’s first and second albums. Rocks and Gravel was meant to be on his second album, but was replaced by Girl From the North Country. Robert Johnson’s Ramblin’ On My Mind is performed here for the first time by Bob Dylan.

What Dylan had left to say or whether he had any enthusiasm left for saying it had, for a while, been unclear.
