This first part of the 2000s list collects non-album song performances and interviews by Bob Dylan on VHS video and DVD (and laserdisc where I have information) from 2000-02. I would be grateful for any additional information on these items and other material to place here. Video material included on CD-ROMs or CD Plus discs is still in the main directory in the appropriate part. Unauthorised documentaries or compilations of performance footage are now included in Questionable Video. For 2000-02 films with Dylan album tracks, see VHS & DVD: Films with Dylan Album Tracks 2000s Part 1.

Films are listed by date of original appearance (in theatres or on TV), not when the VHS video or DVD came out, often some years later. This page does not include songs from regular albums that appear in films or videos without performance footage, nor do I include music videos of standard album tracks - for a full Dylan filmography, see "Expecting Rain" or "TV Talkin'" .

For informed discussion of all Bob's screen appearances, see C.P. Lee's well-received book "Like A Bullet Of Light ".

"Don't Look Back" - Collector's Edition, DVD: Docurama/NewVideo NVG-9447/VHS: Docurama/NewVideo NVG-9442 (USA), 4 Jan 2000:

Docurama/NewVideo NVG-9447 (USA) - DVD picture from NewVideo

This DVD Collector's Edition of the classic Don Pennebaker film of Bob's UK tour of 1965 contains five uncut live audio performances in addition to the material listed for the 1967 film (see VHS & DVD 1960s), so warrants a separate entry. See 1981 for songs broadcast in "Retro Rock" radio programmes in 1981 about D.A. Pennebaker. This DVD was often advertised for sale as being Region 1 (USA/Canada only). However it was actually Region 0 (all Regions) and could be played in any DVD player worldwide.

Rarities from the original release:

R-0666-2 Only A Pawn In Their Game - recorded live, Civil Rights Rally, Silas Magee's Farm, Greenwood, MS, 6 Jul 1963 (excerpt)
I've included this separately from R-0043 because it doesn't belong to 1965.

R-0402-3 Don't Think Twice, It's All Right - live, City Hall, Newcastle, England, 6 May 1965 (appeared in the 1981 radio broadcast)

R-0403-3 It's All Over Now, Baby Blue - hotel room, Savoy Hotel, London, England, 8 May 1965 (appeared in the 1981 radio broadcast)

R-0404-2 It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) - live, Royal Albert Hall, London, England, 9 May 1965

R-0405-3 Talking World War III Blues - live, Royal Albert Hall, London, England, 9 May 1965 (appeared in the 1981 radio broadcast)

R-0043-2 Other performances - live footage from the May 1965 England tour, but only fragments of songs
For a full list of these performances see here .

The five new audio performances are:


Docurama/NewVideo NVG-9447 (USA) - detail of inside of DVD insert (my copy - underlined dates are wrong)
R-0294 To Ramona - unidentified performance, misdated as The Oval, City Hall, Sheffield, England, 30 Apr 1965 (wrongly shown on the DVD insert as 4 May 1965, there was no concert on that day)
This was available on bobdylan.com as BDC60 (see Online Performances (bobdylan.com) ) where the date of the Sheffield show was given correctly. However, it's definitely not Sheffield, see below, and its actual date was unknown until the release of the 50th Anniversary Collection 1965 in Dec
2015, when it was finally revealed to be from City Hall, Newcastle, 6 May 1965 (although still wrongly dated as Sheffield). This performance, again wrongly dated 30 Apr 1965, is also on the exclusive to Japan live compilation Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty-Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances, see 2001.

R-0295 The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll - dated correctly as Royal Albert Hall, London, England, 10 May 1965

R-0296 It's All Over Now, Baby Blue - dated correctly as Royal Albert Hall, London, England, 10 May 1965, same as BDC61 (see Online Performances (bobdylan.com) )

R-0297 Love Minus Zero/No Limit - The Oval, City Hall, Sheffield, England, 30 Apr 1965, misdated as City Hall, Newcastle, England, 6 May 1965 (wrongly shown on the DVD insert as 9 May 1965, which was the date of the first Royal Albert Hall show in London).
However, unlike R-0294, this actually is from Sheffield, see below.

R-0298 It Ain't Me, Babe - dated correctly as Royal Albert Hall, London, England, 10 May 1965

Bob Stacy has now deduced from an existing audience recording which can only be from Sheffield, 30 Apr 1965, that the first half performances of Sheffield and Newcastle, 6 May 1965, have been mislabelled (probably at the time) and Columbia are still listing them with the wrong dates to this day.

The Collector's Edition was also released on VHS in the same digital quality, although these five audio performances were not included. Information and photographs kindly provided by NewVideo, thanks to Alison Bulman and Brian Carmody. Thanks also to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for the scans of his copy of the US DVD. A UK release was planned for 6 Sep 2004, but was cancelled.

Comments on the audio dating:

Thanks to Paul Loeber, Bob Stacy and Simon Shoefield for checking the DVD performances against the circulating 1965 recordings and other material.

To Ramona - This performance is definitely not the one known by Dylan collectors to be from Sheffield (from an audience tape containing six songs which could only have been recorded at Sheffield)! It is now proved to be the one from Newcastle, 6 May 1965.

My previous reasoning was also that Newcastle was the right venue was as follows: "So where is it from? The preface to the book "Do You Mr. Jones - Bob Dylan with the Poets and Professors" edited by Neil Corcoran may supply the answer! In this preface Professor Corcoran recalls his first Dylan concert, in Newcastle on 6 May 1965. (Mine was the night after at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester on 7 May 1965). He tells of a microphone breakdown: "In Newcastle, after recovering briefly, the mike went dead once or twice again. Dylan seemed entirely patient and relaxed, sitting on the edge of the stage and talking to the immediate audience." Neil is confused because the "Don't Look Back" book says the microphone breakdown happened in Sheffield (we now know this was because the Dylan camp had the tapes swapped)! Now maybe the microphone did break down as noticeably in Sheffield as well as Newcastle, but I'd submit it's unlikely. My feeling therefore is that the Dylan camp have mixed the tapes, and the tape they call "Sheffield" is Newcastle, and vice-versa. They must have taken the performance of To Ramona from the tape with the microphone breakdown. This would then date it as City Hall, Newcastle, England, 6 May 1965. Bob Stacy feels this isn't positive proof, and this recording may still come from one of the other shows that don't circulate, such as Leicester, Liverpool or Royal Albert Hall 10 May 1965, but I still think Newcastle is the most likely."

Love Minus Zero/No Limit - this is not Newcastle as listed but definitely from Sheffield, 30 Apr 1965, the spoken introduction and conclusion are the same as on the Sheffield audience tape.

The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll/It's All Over Now, Baby Blue/It Ain't Me, Babe - an audience tape exists of one of the Royal Albert Hall concerts, which was originally dated as 10 May 1965, but was then for several reasons dated as 9 May 1965. The three audio performances on the DVD are not the same as the ones on the tape. However, the release of the 50th Anniversary Collection 1965 in Dec 2015 proves the audience tape was indeed from 10 May 1965 as originally dated, so these listed dates are correct.

Promo VHS scan from eBay
Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding a promo VHS cassette on eBay containing the video of Things Have Changed:

R-0450-2 Things Have Changed - radio edit (3:52)
For promo CD-R singles with this radio edit, see 2000.

I have given this the same R-number as the audio radio edit even though it's timed at 3:52 and the radio edit is timed at 3:37. Several instances of the song have varying printed times but are exactly the same.

In the UK and Australian releases a different picture of Katie Holmes replaces Tobey Maguire in the top row next to Michael Douglas! The other stars pictured are Robert Downey Jr. and Frances McDormand. Both the US Region 1 DVD and the UK Region 2 DVD also contain a full-length promotional video for Things Have Changed, not the shorter video that promoted the radio edit of the song in 2000. A previous report that the UK DVD didn't have any extras was incorrect. The UK release has an insert card printed on one side only.

Thanks to Freddy Ordoñez Araque for the information that Wonder Boys was released in South America under the title Fin De Semana De Locos [Crazy Weekend], and for the scan. This uses the US picture layout.

Thanks to Artur Jarosinski for scans of two DVD releases of "Wonder Boys" in Poland, retitled "Cudowni Chłopcy". The first is the regular release in a DVD case with a folded insert, the second is in a card sleeve and was given away free with an issue of the Polish magazine "Dom & Wnetrze". Thanks to Stanislav Tomik for scans of the 2005 DVD release of "Wonder Boys" in the Czech Republic/Slovakia, retitled "Skvělí Chlapi". This is an official release. Thanks to Stuart Moore for scans of the Australian DVD and VHS releases.

"The Source" - documentary film, DVD & VHS: Fox Lorber FLV 5225 (USA), 2000:
This DVD release is region-free, so can be played worldwide.

SourceUSDVD.jpg (60011 bytes)
US DVD release, picture from amazon.com
This documentary film by Chuck Workman about the American Beat writers from the 1940s to the 1960s was released in conjunction with "The Rolling Stone Book of the Beats" and features performance footage by Bob. Larry Crum has provided the details:

1) An excerpt from "Don't Look Back" (see VHS & DVD 1960s) with Dylan strumming his guitar and responding to the questions "What is your attitude towards life? When you meet someone what is your attitude towards them?" with "I don't like them".

2) Knocking on Heaven's Door from "Renaldo & Clara" - the film is listed in the credits at the end of "The Source" (see VHS & DVD 1970s) . About 2:30 of the audio of the song is used as background for interviews but only a few seconds of the video of the performance is actually shown. (This is the 20 Nov 1975 performance included in The Bootleg Series Vol. 5: Live 1975.)

3) Dylan and Ginsberg at Kerouac's grave. Dylan says "I wanna be in an unmarked grave." (from "Renaldo and Clara" also).

There are also dramatised sections in which Johnny Depp, John Turturro, and Dennis Hopper portray Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and William S. Burroughs respectively.

JackBalladVHS.jpg (55282 bytes)
US VHS release

Appearances by Bob in the film include:

  • driving a bus on the Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975, in which Jack Elliott took part (a clip from Renaldo & Clara - see 1978 and VHS & DVD 1970s)
  • an excerpt from Hard Times In New York Town is played over stills
  • a short clip of Bob saying that he once had a hat like Jack's - thanks to Ian Woodward for reminding me this is from Don't Look Back - see above and VHS & DVD 1960s)
I previously reported that the film includes Bob's performance of Acne (R-0324) from the Aug 2000 Vanguard soundtrack album (see 2000). However, this performance must be available in audio only, and is missing from the film.

As far as I know this film has not been released commercially in the UK, although it has been shown on the BBC Knowledge cable channel.

R-0483 Excerpts from released and unreleased Bob Dylan tracks, including an early song from the 1950s with a lyric that sounds like "Betty Lou" and a fragment of Gene Vincent's Be-Bop-A-Lula, both from the John Bucklen tape

Thanks to David Pollock and Rob Carson for drawing this to my attention. Larry Crum adds "Also includes excerpts of live performances of Only A Pawn In Their Game (R-0024, see 1964), Hurricane (R-0132, see 1975-76 Hurricane Singles, Maggie's Farm with Tom Petty and Willie Nelson at Farm Aid, and Seeing The Real You At Last with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers from Buffalo, NY, 4 Jul 1986.

This unprecedented BIOGRAPHY® presents a portrait of a man whose life and music have been a weathervane for his times."

This set was released on DVD in Dec 2002 - however the disc was a DVD+R, which would not play on all DVD players. Thanks to Freddy Ordoñez Araque for information about the DVD and to Ted Harrington for the scan. It was released in 2005 as a regular DVD, thanks to Freddy Ordoñez Araque and Jack Guerreiro for the information and scans.

The show description says: "He was a skinny nineteen-year-old with a battered guitar and a dream of meeting Woody Guthrie. In just a few short years, he took his place alongside his idol as one of the most important musicians of the 20th century.

Bob Dylan didn't just transform music--he embodied an era. But unlike other performers who are reluctant to change in case their appeal fades, he has never shied from challenging his fans and himself. BIOGRAPHY® follows the influential singer from his boyhood days in Minnesota to superstardom and beyond in this feature-length special. Rare photos from his arrival in New York City show the boy who would soon become a legend, and period recordings capture the brilliance that set the folk world afire. Fellow musicians Dave Van Ronk and Happy Traum reflect on his shocking electric set at the Newport Folk Festival, the first of his many, highly-publicized re-inventions. And we'll get an up-close look at Dylan today, an aging superstar who remains a musical force, even if his days as a cultural icon are past.

DVD release (2 DVDs)
Details of Bob's involvement in this documentary series from Larry Crum (all excerpts of track, not complete versions):

Episode Three: A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall (LP version), The Times They Are A-Changin' (from Don't Look Back, see VHS & DVD 1960s), Maggie's Farm (LP version), and It's All Over Now, Baby Blue (LP version). The LP tracks are played over still photographs of Dylan.

It was reported on the Internet that Episode Three "ends with Dylan's electric set and its impact at the Newport Folk Festival." - this was not true. If it had been included, it would almost certainly have been an excerpt from Murray Lerner's 1966 film Festival, see VHS & DVD 1960s.

Episode Four: "The Times They Are A-Changin'" (also from Don't Look Back)

There is also a 4CD soundtrack album (which won a Grammy in Feb 2002) and which contains the album version of The Times They Are A-Changin' as well as performances of several other songs associated with Bob. The same track is also on a single Highlights CD, for both see International Album Releases (Various Artists Compilations) 2001.

R-0140 ( Baby Let Me Follow You Down) and R-0141 ( I Don't Believe You) from the 1978 soundtrack album are missing from the film itself as is R-0540 (Hazel) - apparently on Bob's instructions, his performance was only filmed from R-0142 onwards. Thanks to Fred Muller from New Zealand for pointing this out.

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro for scans of his US copy, which comes as part of the boxed set "The Martin Scorsese Film Collection" with "New York, New York", "Raging Bull" and "Boxcar Bertha" (but not "Taxi Driver"). The catalogue number is the same but the rear design is completely different from my copy, as is the disc design. Thanks also to Jack Guerreiro for information about the high definition 2006 US Blu-ray release (this will not play in a standard DVD player, and needs a special Blu-ray player that is not compatible with discs with the rival HD-DVD system). Thanks to Hans Seegers for details of a Warner Bros promo CD called The Last Waltz: Press Kit Photography CD. This is actually a CD-ROM and has a video excerpt from R-0143, more details are in 2002.


The Band plus Guests - "The Last Waltz - Collector's Edition" - DVD release (Region 2): MGM Home Entertainment 17337DVD (UK), Oct 2002:


The Last Waltz Collector's Edition (UK) - DVD cover (my copy -"U" rated)
This UK release is retitled "Collector's Edition". Thanks to Peter Good for the UK DVD test pressing, which is dated 30 Aug 2002. It came in a plain jewel case with a sticker that promises two discs, although the material is actually contained on one.

My copy is rated "U" for universal viewing. Thanks to Moise Potié for information and scans of an edition that is rated "15" and has a front sticker and leaflet advertising a competition to win a signed guitar. Gerd Rundel's copy has a slightly different rear insert (still rated "15") but the DVD like mine is rated "U". The Irish ratings are also different.

The Argentinean release has the title translated into Spanish, this time literally (the original Argentinean vinyl and cassette releases were titled El Último Rock [The Last Rock]). On the front below the title is: “¡LA MEJOR PELICULA DE ROCK! [THE BEST FILM OF ROCK!]”. The rear text is also in Spanish, but includes  “4-CD BOX SET DE 'THE LAST WALTZ' DISPONIBLE EN WARNER BROS. RECORDS [4-CD BOX SET OF 'THE LAST WALTZ' AVAILABLE ON WARNER BROS. RECORDS]” (the 2002 4CD set was never actually released in Argentina - this is an error caused by translating the entire English text into Spanish).

Thanks to Sergio Mariano Romay for information and scans.


"Hollywood Rocks The Movies" - American Movie Classics TV series shown weekend of 4 Jul 2002 (USA):


Picture from www.culturevulture.net
Thanks to Rob Cole for information about this series hosted by Ringo Starr: Part 1, Hollywood Rocks The Movies: The Early Years (1955-1970), features two clips from Don't Look Back (see above and VHS & DVD 1960s). Apparently all that is included is a short excerpt of a concert performance and footage of a reporter calling in a story.

Part 2, Hollywood Rocks The Movies: The 1970s, includes a clip from The Last Waltz (see above and VHS & DVD 1970s). Bob isn't mentioned as a guest, but can be seen in a shot of the stage during the finale. For more information, see here.

Season 3 - US DVD release
R-0585 Return To Me [Ritorna A Me] (Danny Di Minno/Carmen Lombardo) - soundtrack version from episode "Amour Fou [Mad Love]", Season 3, episode 38, different from album version (R-0464, see 2001)

Keith Venturoni informs me: "The version of Return to Me used on the show was different and longer than the CD version. It also did not have the verse sung in Italian. It may just be an edit job, as it is hard to tell because there was dialog over the song in many parts."

US VHS release

The US DVD was re-released in Mar 2003 in "full screen" (4:3) and "widescreen" versions in card "clip front" sleeves - thanks to Freddy Ordoñez Araque for information about these releases. (The biplane stayed on the right!) The UK DVD release (in 2.35:1 widescreen only) is also in a card "clip front" sleeve, but features a revised cover picture with a still from the film replacing the sunflower head, which is relegated to the back. The UK VHS release (not shown) has the same picture. The US theatrical release poster has the film title in the centre of the sunflower head instead of below the cast pictures.

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro for the US DVD disc scan and to Stuart Moore for scans of the Australian widescreen DVD release.
