Did You Know?


The show marked one of Bob Dylan's first concert appearances since the mid-1960s, when he was injured in a motorcycle accident. EMI made a special deal with Columbia Records (Dylan's label) to include Dylan's portion of the show in the soundtrack album: ... ...


In between 'Blowin' in the Wind' and 'Just Like a Woman', Bob Dylan attaches his capo to the second fret of his guitar. George Harrison then leans over to speak to Leon Russell, but immediately in the next shot, Dylan's guitar is capoed on the fourth fret and George is back in his regular position. (This is most likely due to the deletion of another Dylan song, 'Mr. Tambourine Man', which was played with a capo on the 2nd fret and is included on the film's soundtrack album.)
