Hi everyone. I thought that some of you might be interested in seeing a video I created using excerpts from "Eat The Document" and "No Direction Home." It's a compilation of most of Dylan's live footage from 1966, in the accurate order they were played in concert. I spent about a month editing snippets of footage together to make longer versions of the songs and also matching and subsequently overdubbing the original film audio with high-quality soundboard recordings released on "The 1966 Live Recordings." I tried uploading it to my YouTube channel (which has other 1965 music videos I've edited), but couldn't get it to work due to copyright issues. Hope you enjoy it!

Thank you! Grabbed it, and it looks (and sounds) fantastic.

Thanks.

Good job.

Always loved the material from Bob at this time.

Great stuff. We were promised an official Manchester 1966 dvd years ago but it never happened.

Unlikely; given that D.A. Pennebaker wasn't even there. I doubt there's much more than Howard Alk's "quick: turn the camera on!" from the balcony just in time for the "Judas!" moment.

And yes I loved the video. It's probably even better than the whole Manchester show as with this we get a variety of shots and performances. Not to mention some of the best performances.

I did exactly this a year or two ago. Sadly sony pulled it from youtube after about 100k views. Redited, Eat The Document can become very watchable, and the live footage is essential!

I'm crossing my fingers that that won't be the fate of my video too. And yes, I agree with you on Eat The Document. I'm surprised it was never re-edited and more importantly, remastered. This 35mm film has the potential to be comparable to the recently-released music videos by The Beatles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYvkICbTZIQ. Just breathtakingly clear because of their restoration. Someday, I hope Dylan's music and footage gets a similar process done to it.

I'm sure it's on the books for a future release... I hope so anyways.

Have just watched/listened to this. Brilliant. Many thanks Swinging' Pig for your fantastic effort bringing this together.

They're currently digitising Eat The Document at Tulsa. They have something like 30 hours of footage.

The problem when they were editing it in '67 was that the audio and video was out of sync. At the time it was a mammoth job as they had to manually line up the tape and film reel. That's why there are so many short cuts of scenes in the film, as it was much easier to sync small bits of footage. Obviously now with computers this can be done really easily, so hopefully we will start seeing more extended Eat The Document footage. I've no doubt it could be edited into something at least as compelling as Don't Look Back.

Huge thanks!

This, and the archive, and all that is rumored or promised gives me the assurance that, regardless of whether Dylan releases another album of originals or not, I'll have enough "fresh" Dylan for the rest of my days.
That's a nice feeling. :D

Yeah, and even if they brought nothing out ever again, I could make do with listening to all the concerts and studio stuff that is available on hERe

Thanks for this. Fascinating about the original editing process. I just hope they're now taking the time to restore the images and digitizing in 4K (something clearer than footage in No Direction Home). I believe it'd be a masterpiece if edited correctly, and surely one of the most important Dylan film releases ever.
