Today on Mikes Diggs Music we offer clips from three of the "founding fathers" of modern music from the early part of their respective careers.
From February1 1964 we offer this "woodsy"look at Bob Dylan as he plays a half hour set on Canad ian TV just after releasing the "The Times They Are A-Changing" Lp. It is kind of a farewell to his acoustic era as within a month he would rent an electric guitar.
Here is the set list : 1. The Times They Are A Changin' 2. Talkin' World War III Blues 3. Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll 4. Girl From The North Country 5. A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall 6. Restless Farewell
