Bob Dylan and the Band - Complete Basement Tapes

From Joyride Media | 59:00

The complete story behind Bob Dylan and The Band's 1967 recordings in Woodstock, NY, now known as the Basement Tapes

Screen_shot_2014-10-28_at_10 In 1967, Bob Dylan and several members of what became The Band got together in upstate New York. For months, they played and played – and recorded as they went along. It took 8 years for some of the music to come out officially, but in that time, the legend of The Basement Tapes grew. Bootlegs were passed around, little hints of the bigger treasure that existed somewhere.

In this one hour radio special, you’ll hear about these recordings from The Band member Garth Hudson, songwriter and author Sid Griffin, Dylan biographer Clinton Heylin, author Greil Marcus, writer Anthony DeCurtis and producer Steve Berkowitz, plus many highlights from the full release of The Basement Tapes.

Dylannewcover_small

When Bob Dylan arrived in New York City in the early 1960's, he didn't just alter the course of folk music, he helped change the way the music business worked in general.  Dylan achieved this by merely doing what he does best - writing and singing his own songs.  The popularity of his music took care of the rest.
 
In this one-hour radio special you will hear some of Bob Dylan's early demo recordings and songs from his albums as they were first heard on AM radio - in Mono!  You will also hear interviews from his first manager Roy Silver, music publisher Artie Mogull, journalist Colin Escott and record producer Steve Berkowitz.

Patti Smith hosts this hour of Bob Dylan music and conversation covering 1961-1964.

Bddylancover_small Bob Dylan moved to New York City in 1961, and within two years he was being lauded as the "voice of a generation." The young troubadour wasn't so interested in being that, but Dylan's meteoric rise to fame was no fluke. In his songs, Dylan captured the social consciousness of the time and took it beyond as he rejected the role of protest singer. In this hour, we'll hear about Dylan's early years as he moved from folk singer-songwriter to rock and roll star. Interviews: Bob Neuwirth, Ray Benson, George Wein, John Hammond, Suze Rotolo, David Nelson, Tom Morello, Dave Van Ronk, Bill Flanagan, Rush Rehm, Sean Wilentz, John Cohen, Greil Marcus, Anthony DeCurtis

DYLAN: LIKE A ROLLING STONE

From Joyride Media | Part of the DYLAN series | 59:00

Patti Smith hosts this hour of Bob Dylan music and conversation covering 1965-1974

Bddylancover_small With the mantle of folk protest singer off his shoulders, Bob Dylan launched into a flurry of creativity in the mid-1960's. His sound exploded with electric instruments and a blend of folk, rock, blues, and gospel influences. By the late 60's, Dylan was singing country music like he had grown up in Nashville. His lyrics still commented on the world, but through a wider lens that mixed personal reflection with mystical and surreal images. In this hour, we'll hear how Dylan found his own unique voice, and how that changed rock and roll for a long time to come. Interviews: Sean Wilentz, George Wein, Roger McGuinn, Anthony DeCurtis, Greil Marcus, John Hiatt, John Cohen, Ray Benson, Josh Ritter, Bill Flanagan, Garth Hudson

Patti Smith hosts this hour of Bob Dylan music and conversation covering 1974-1989

By the late 80's, Dylan had supported Live Aid, Farm Aid, and joined the Traveling Wilburys. In this hour, we'll hear highlights from this period of dizzying artistic and personal growth. Interviews: Bill Flanagan, Roger McGuinn, David Mansfield, Ray Benson, Ian McLagan, David Gans
