Wiki

Bob Dylan's tour of Europe in May of 1966 has long been a point of fascination for his most dedicated fans, thanks mostly to the tapes of incendiary gigs that leaked out and were bootlegged over the years. Treasured tapes of the phenomenal show he gave in Manchester, England, on May 17, 1966, have been passed among fortunate collectors for decades, and the show has finally been officially released by Dylan's record label asLive, 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall Concert."Now those who've only attended the legendary Manchester gig in dreams can journey back to join C.P. Lee and his mates. Lee, a professor today, was at the age of 16 one of the lucky 1,800 to be blasted and blown away by the intense aural assault Dylan unleashed inside Manchester's Free Trade Hall. Writing with an eye for the quirky detail, Lee takes the reader along to the concert, introducing us to the steadfast fans as well as those who came to heckle. Not only isLike the Nightgreat fun, but the author possesses keen understanding for Dylan and his music, and his insights into Dylan as both performer and as a cultural force should be required reading for anyone who claims to be a Dylan fanatic.--Robert McNamara

He was speaking specifically of writing down snippets of lyrics as he and a friend who had been there remembered them after the Manchester Free Trade Hall concert of May 17, 1966. Without the Internet, the new songs Dylan sang that night might take months to arrive in northwestern England on vinyl, and even then, Lee reminds us, at the time in that working class city, record players were a luxury.   & …
