D.A. Pennebaker, 94.
Sixties Filmmaker who made Don’t Look Back, the legendary 1965 tour of England film. As Joan Baez said, using Bob’s words “It was all over now, Baby Blue” after that tour.

I first read of the tour in Pennebaker’s little 1967 paperback visual script, and did not see it until the ’90s. It strongly affected how I see Dylan, Donovan, Baez, Alan Price (of The Animals), Albert Grossman–his manager, and his pals.

(new copy of the original 1968 visual-look-screenplay I first read of the movieĀ  in university before it appeared long afterward in 2006 in a nice DVD boxset)

(purty interesting: 5 uncut audio tracks, Pennebaker & road manager commentaries; alternate video of “Subterranean Homesick Blues” not used in movie; original trailer; an extra hr. of Dylan; the original companion book; a visual flipbook of original “Subterranean” video.

A must-have for the hardcore Dylan fan.
