Painful But Worth It
14 June 2019 | by daleflSee all my reviews

First of all I'd like to say that the Dylan concert clips are absolutely fantastic. Simple Twist Of Fate was almost spine tingling. They did a great job of restoring them and that's what makes this well worth it. But there were so many times it was almost like Dylan was providing the soundtrack to a Ginsberg biography. This thing gets lost in its own self sometimes. I realize that Ginsberg was a part of Dylan's existence at that time, and a lot of other people's as well, but I could have gone for three times more Dylan and ten times less Ginsberg. All in all it's a really good look at that period of Dylan's life and career. If you can sit through the Ginsberg stuff then you're really going to like this.
