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
As a fan of Bob Dylan and the documentary of Don't Look Back, this film was a let down. Instead of presenting the footage and letting the viewer watch it and listen to it, it is Mickey Jones and someone else talking over the entire presentation of the footage. When there were shots of Dylan playing acoustic, you could not hear him play or sing, you could only hear Mickey Jones and the interviewer talking about how neat these sets were.
There are some interesting stories and photos, but I think this would have been much more enjoyable if there was not a constant commentary over top of all the footage. It would have been better to offer the option of a commentary to turn on or off instead of it being more like an extended interview with Mickey Jones with some clips in the background.
