Brilliant and so evocative of the times, but nobody's mentioned drugs. It seemed to me that Dylan was high as a kite in Newcastle and singing the gibberish lyrics drugs induce. It was almost as though the young kid with the brilliant songs had just been taken over by an alien. And the sound balance with the band was atrocious!
No wonder an audience who had had been won over by his lyrics were annoyed when they couldn't understand a word he sang.
