Episode 5: Plugging In
24 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While Beatles were changing the music scene, in America, Bob Dylan was also transforming the way music was used as means of communication. His lyrics instantly hit a chord with many folk musicians and his songs and style of writing became universally well known in relatively short time. Bob Dylan had as much influence in music as the Beatles did during the '60s when war in Vietnam was raging. In the meetings of these two forces, The Beatles started to experiment more with lyrics, and Dylan started to experiment more with music which resulted in Dylan going electric at the 1965 New Port Folk Festival.

This episode is sort of broken up into two segments: First about Bob Dylan and how his music influenced the rock scene, and other folk artists like Richie Havens, Peter Paul and Mary, and Joan Baez also contributed towards the anti war movement towards Vietnam.

The second segment is about how the music scene moved from New York's Greenwitch Village, to Los Angeles, and how Montrey Pop Festival in '67 introduced the new wave of British (?) groups such as Jimi Hendrix Experience, The WHO, and less well known American talents such as Otis Redding to the crowd. It was also the first time San Francisco bands like the Jefferson Airplane played before an international audience.
