The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6: Live 1964 - Concert At Philharmonic Hall
He was wearing his Bob Dylan mask, he famously announced at this Halloween 1964 show, but he was actually opening up more and more of himself. This entry in The Bootleg Series finds Dylan revisiting hard-hitting protest classics ("The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll," "With God on Our Side") while presenting newer, less political songs from Another Side ("All I Really Want to Do," "To Ramona") and unreleased gems of both stripes ("Talkin' World War III Blues," "If You Gotta Go, Go Now"). Four songs with cohort Joan Baez also thrilled the folk-oriented crowd. It would be months before he'd shock them with his first side of electric music, but Dylan was already pushing plenty of boundaries.
