Storyline

With a set of drums and an 8mm color home movie camera, Mickey Jones toured the world in 1966 with Bob Dylan and The Band. He captured on film what became known as "The tour that changed Rock and Roll forever." The booing crowds, the scathing reviews, the stomping feet, the infamous catcall of "Judas!" ... all of this in response to Dylan trading in his acoustic folk guitar for an electric sound. Now, for the first time, drummer-turned-actor Mickey Jones (Sling Blade, Home Improvement), with the help of Director Joel Gilbert, chronicles the legendary 1966 Bob Dylan World Tour through his recently discovered home movies. The updated release includes new, exclusive full-length interviews with Charlie Daniels, Johnny Rivers, 1966 World Tour and Gaslight tapes sound man Richard Alderson, and new insights and revelations by Mickey Jones. Written by Joel Gilbert

Fun for Die-Hard Fans of Dylan

1966 World Tour: The Home Movies (2003)

*** (out of 4)

Bob Dylan's 1966 tour is perhaps the greatest rock and roll tour in the history of music and many feel that it really changed rock in general. Backed by The Hawks, who would later become known as The Band, the tour broke new grounds for Dylan and this documentary features behind the scenes footage by drummer Mickey Jones. Running just at 90-minutes, this here serves as mainly an interview as Jones talks about the various cities they played, what they did on their days off and of course he's asked about the troubled tour where most fans spent their time booing the electric set. This documentary certainly isn't going to be for everyone but I think die-hard Dylan fans are going to enjoy seeing this footage, which includes some stuff with Dylan on the stage but more interestingly is the stuff between the shows where Dylan and the band are just hanging out at various locations. We get to see footage from Australia, Denmark, Sweden, London and Paris just to name a few. Jones does a very good job at talking about the tour and we even get to hear his thoughts about all the booing that was going on. Not only does he discuss the 1966 tour but he also talks about working with Johnny Rivers, introducing Otis Redding to Dylan and opening for The Beatles in Paris. We even get some footage of The Beatles on stage pre-U.S. visit. Overall, 1966 WORLD TOUR isn't the greatest thing put together but it's entertaining for fans of Dylan or those who just want to know a little more about this legendary tour.
