… a whirlwind tour of the many phases, and faces, of Bob?from fierce ’60s folk-rock tyro to white-makeup-caked troubadour to craggy old bard with a gleam in his eye and a Vincent Price mustache. The video draws on several decades of archival footage, some of it previously unseen. It’s a panorama of 40-odd years of American musical history, and?for Dylan freaks?a trainspotter’s dream.
And if Dylan freak = YOU, get involved with Slate’s contest, asking you to ID the year in which the bits of footage were filmed. Winner gets an autographed guitar from the man himself. We hear eBay is a great place for iconic memorabilia these days! Maybe make some loot for your holiday shopping.
