Forever Young

Beyond its inevitable historical interest, what makes Live 1966 so special is that it captures a fantastic sound that neither Dylan nor anyone else was able to recapture. Shortly before this tour he and the Band had tried and failed to replicate their live sound in the studio.

Two-and-a-half months after this show, Dylan had his famous motorcycle accident, followed by a period of withdrawal. He forever retreated from the psychic edge that Live 1966 documents.

While it wouldn't be true to say he was never this good again -- less than a year later he was at the peak of his form on The Basement Tapes sessions -- he was certainly never the same Dylan again. Live 1966 makes a pretty convincing case that after this epochal show, rock 'n' roll was never quite the same again, either.
