Fifty-years ago today, Dylan recorded one of his fun and classic songs- Subterranean Homesick Blues." It was became famous for two reasons. First, the last line of the second verse was the founding name of a radical group:
You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.And second, the video of the song from a documentary became a template for future videos. Here, first, is the video with a talkover by director D. J. Pennebaker and Bob Neuwirth.
But we can't let it just go without hearing the whole thing without extraneous commentary.
Thanks, Bob, for this amazing song.
