Bob Dylan World Tours
bobsboots.com review by CD Pinkerton
Joel Gilbert is a convincing Bob Dylan. Not heard of him?
This California resident, along with his band Highway 61 Revisited
bill themselves as the world's only Bob Dylan tribute band.
You can learn more about them from their website at: http://www.highway61revisited.com
First the bad news: While Gilbert might be Dylan, He's not
Martin Scorsese. This is his second film about Dylan. The hand held
camera shots from a moving vehicle are like watching your
brother-in-law's vacation video. The music score (provided by Highway
61 Revisited backing tracks) is poorly edited. It starts, and stops,
and jerks roughly. There is no flow or continuity. Gilbert conducts
interviews like a high school news paper reporter on their first
OK enough about the mechanics of the project.
The GOOD NEWS is: If you are reading this review, this DVD is a must
have for your collection!!! The idea behind it is simple. Joel sets off
on a cross-country pilgrimage to visit Woodstock and Greenwich Village,
NY; and to interview famed photographer Barry Feinstein. He invites you
to come along... and you don't want to miss this one! There is
guaranteed to be photos you've never seen, and anecdotes you've never
heard. Any Dylan fan is sure to find fascination in the first hand
accounts of two historic tours from someone who was in the very heart
of them. There are
several colorful characters from Dylan's past that Joel has an audience
highlight is the reflections of an unknown Bob Dylan made by Folklore Center proprietor Izzy Young. Visit Big Pink, Two of
Dylan's Woodstock homes, listen to new ramblings from
Dylan-Garboligist A.J. Weberman, and so much more.
Yes, it's as rough and raw as film making gets... so don't invite the
couple next door for an evening of movie watching . But don't cheat
yourself out one of the most entertaining Dylan documentaries ever.

Reminds me of the film
"The Kids Stays In the Picture." Brilliant cinematography and movement!

Go where no Dylan fan has gone
before - amazing unseen photos and the intimate truth about Dylan's
highs and lows from 1966-1974..
