Few performances in music history created more ferocious responses than this by Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965. When the folk demi-god moved away from acoustic guitar to the “electric sound” he was perceived as selling out to rock ‘n’ roll commercialism and joining the enemy. This song was the last of his short electric set at Newport. Before starting the song and after it is finished, the boos from the crowd of thousands record their opposition to the new creative path taken by Dylan. Paul of Peter, Paul & Mary tries to intercede between artist and crowd at the end and asks Dylan to come back to do an acoustic guitar number, but the line had been crossed and the start of a more expansive creative period had begun.
