The night Dylan went electric to the delight of some and dismay of others, that he might no longer reign as the "spokesperson" for his generation.

Paul Petraitis's picture

first they boo cause he's "gone electric" then they boo cuz the vocals over the PA are distorted (I'm sure input levels for the mics weren't adjustable) then they boo because Bob only gave 'em a 15 minute show! Was Like A Rolling Stone recorded before Newport but released afterward? Playing it at Newport Al Kooper's on bass cuz Butterfield's bassist Jerome Arnold doesn't know the tune, Bloomfield is real loud and real hot!
