Charlie Daniels played guitar on three classic Bob Dylan albums, including Nashville Skyline. Here the county icon pays homage to one of his musical heroes by performing covers of such classics as Tangled Up In Blue.
Decades ago, the Salton Sea, two hours outside Los Angeles, was a tourist hotspot and a symbol of 1950s-era American optimism. Now, a victim of environmental decline, it stands mostly abandoned, its boomtown communities now decaying relics of a bygone era. Visionary filmmaker Alma Har'el investigates one such town, Bombay Beach, and weaves together the stories of its inhabitants with surreal poetry and beauty.
The legendary documentarian finds Dylan in London during his 1965 tour, which would be his last as an acoustic artist and marked a turning point in his career.

Grew partly out of an exploration of the possibility of Dylan's writing music for a play by the great poet Archibald MacLeish.

A two part documentary on the fascinating career of Bob Dylan in the early sixties. Scorsese's film chronicles the early years of Dylan, collecting clips of the singer-songwriter from 1961-66, as he went from being a rising star on the New York City folk scene to one of the country's greatest protest singers to, in the words of one irate concertgoer, a Judas for plugging in and going electric.
