This is called It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding). It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) ... ho ho ho.

The name of this song is Love Minus Zero, er, slash, over's No Limit. End of quote. Kind of like a painting — the title. Paint it in purple.

This is called Gates of Eden. (before "Gates of Eden")

That was called Gates of Eden!

This is a true story — only the words have been changed. (before The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll).

Notes

Live debut of Tombstone Blues.

This session took place Saturday Morning/Afternoon 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM. It was hosted by Peter Yarrow and Ronnie Gilbert. Also scheduled to appear at the workshop were Donovan, Gordon Lightfoot, Eric Von Schmidt, Richard & Mimi Farina and Ian & Sylvia.

The footage in the film FESTIVAL combines the recording of All I Really Want To Do from Newport Folk Festival 26 July 1964.

The footage included in FESTIVAL combines 2 first verses of All I Really Want To Do from 1965 with the last one from his 1964 performance, in an attempt to recreate a single track.

Mr. Tambourine Man plays in the background while Ronnie Gilbert talks about the idols of each generation, before announcing Dylan in 1964, and is also edited and combines recordings of two different performances, as also occurs in the DVD THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR, using approximately the first 40 seconds of the 24 July 1964 performance and a 16-second harmonica break from 1.

2 broadcast by WDR, Germany for the first time in July/August 1965, lately re-broadcast on 9 August 2003.

The WDR documentary made by the famous German reporter Gerd Ruge, shows Bob Dylan performing Tombstone Blues in a so-called American shot, with the same acoustic Gibson guitar we see him playing in FESTIVAL while performing All I Really Want To Do on Saturday afternoon, 24 July. He is wearing the same attire, on the same stage, and same windy day as shown in the rest of the several excerpts filmed during that one performance seen on THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR.

The Tombstone Blues performance happened only days before the studio recording of the same cut for HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED in its final electric version. The German TV documentary consists of a small fragment, less than two minutes of footage, in which Ruge is heard over a great part of the song except for a brief pause in the commentary which leaves Bob‘s phrasing perfectly audible for a moment. We can only see Dylan on stage for a short time. The rest of the footage shows the crowd, the atmosphere of the Festival, ―merchandising‖ and, again, the crowd. The camera pans, finding the reporter seated amongst the audience, ready to talk. We see and hear Donovan in a distant shot singing The Little Tin Soldier, and again Ruge, preparing to finish his reporting.

A fragment of 3 can be heard in the background during an interview with Mississippi John Hurt in the film FESTIVAL.
