"MAGGIE'S FARM" - BOB DYLAN
The quintessential poet behind the Greenwich Village folk scene and undoubtedly the most prestigious troubadour of all time, Bob Dylan's philosophical lyricism socially and politically transformed America's cultural landscape. Dylan was a regular performer at New York City's Cafe Wha? and spent much of his time with beatnik Allen Ginsberg and fellow singer-songwriter Joan Baez before "Maggie's Farm" portrayed Dylan in a controversial limelight. Dylan famously "went electric" with an erupting version of the Bringing It All Back Home single at Newport Folk Festival in 1965. A number of rock 'n roll historians refer to the performance as Dylan's farewell to folk stylings, transitioning before the audience's eyes into a political protest. Immediately, Dylan transformed into an artist for the revolution providing the pulse for much of the anti-establishment beliefs of the counterculture. Today, Dylan remains (often unwillingly) a mysterious and highly respected musical prophet and voice for generations to come.
