This new page collects non-album song performances and interviews by Bob Dylan on DVD from 2010 onwards. 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 2010 onwards films with Dylan album tracks, see VHS & DVD: Films with Dylan Album Tracks 2010s.

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 ".

Thanks to Jean-Pierre Mercier for laserdisc details and catalogue numbers and Michel Pomarede for scans. Thanks also to Larry Crum for checking these entries against his own collection, "Positively Bob Dylan" by Michael Krogsgaard, "Bob Dylan on Video" (article in "Record Collector" magazine, Sep 1992), and several other sources. All scans that aren't credited are from my own collection or amazon.com

If you have any entries to add to the list or additions/corrections to existing entries, please let me know! Please note I cannot value your Dylan rarities - see the Mission page for reasons why. Contact the dealers on my Trading page for assistance!

Fight the much-hated artificial and anti-consumer DVD Region system by making your PC DVD drive and software or your stand-alone DVD player region-free! For more information, see Inmatrix . Everyone can play all CDs worldwide, and it should be the same for DVDs! Also see DVD Codes .

Some studios are fortunately realising that they can maximise sales of individual DVD releases by making them region-free instead of having to manufacture multiple region-specific copies- click on the picture on the right to see the text.

When Blu-ray titles were originally released they were region-free, but now they are also region-encoded, with North and South America as Region A, Europe/Australasia/Africa as Region B and Central Asia including China as Region C. This is a very retrograde step!

First Run Features FRF 914741D (USA) - picture from amazon.com
This film had its theatrical release on 5 Jan2011 at IFC Center, New York City. The American television premiere was on PBS, 23 Jan 2012, as part of the network's "American Masters" series.

Of primary importance is a ca. 59 second audio clip of Blowin' In The Wind from the Friends Of Chile benefit "An Evening With Salvador Allende," 9 May 1974, at the Felt Forum, Madison Square Garden. The audio, marred by voiceovers, is accompanied by onstage photographs of the performance by Dylan, Ochs, Dave Van Ronk, Pete Seeger, and others.

R-0921 Blowin' In The Wind - live at the Friends Of Chile benefit "An Evening With Salvador Allende," Felt Forum, Madison Square Garden, New York, 9 May 1974

There are several Dylan mentions, accompanied by photos, including some minutes discussing the Dylan/Ochs relationship, one speaker (the former manager of the Gaslight Cafe, I think) calling Dylan "a prick". Lastly, Jeff Rosen is listed among the "Additional Thanks."

Thanks to Tim Dunn for information.

This feature film by Martin Scorsese in two parts includes as yet unspecified footage of Bob playing with the Traveling Wilburys in part two. As there are no Traveling Wilburys video pages this performance is included here. The DVD release is on two discs while the Blu-ray release is on a single disc.

Moise Potié says: "Here's a rundown of the Dylan content on the DVDs:"

Disc 1: Almost all the Dylan content was on Disc 2. The only quasi-Dylan content on Disc 1 was a photo of Harrison reading the "Don't Look Back" paperback.

Disc 2:

Bob Wilbury content (all on Disc 2): (I don't have the Wilbury box set with the documentary DVD--I've always meant to get it, but haven't yet--so I don't know if any of this is already available.)

Thanks to Franck Faugere for information and scans of the French Blu-ray release and to Moise Potié for scans of the Canadian DVD release.

R-0519-3 Romance In Durango (Bob Dylan/Jacques Levy) - slightly shorter version, fades out before the point at which the segue into Black Diamond Bay occurs on the Desire album (album version is 5:50)
Thanks to Tim Dunn for confirming that this version is timed at 5:45 in the insert notes and at 5:43 on his CD player. This is therefore the edited version (R-0519), truncating the fade-out, which appeared on a 1976 Japanese 7" single as the B-side of One More Cup of Coffee, there timed at 5:44, see 1976, so the US
Varèse Sarabande soundtrack album is listed in 2012.

Romance In Durango segues into Black Diamond Bay on Side 2 of Desire, but has also appeared as a 5:50 stand-alone version on a CBS Spain stereo 7" single, see International 7" Singles & EPs 1977.

Reprise 532775-BR2 (USA) - US Blu-ray release, front picture from www.amazon.com
Thanks to Lars-Arne Klintworth and Derek Barker for information that the video for the song Twisted Road in this Blu-ray release includes footage of Bob performing in 1966. The video, for the song ‘Twisted Road’, was released on a Blu-ray version of the album in 24-bit/192kHz resolution. It appeared mid November 2012, a month after the standard album came out. The video for ‘Twisted Road’, however, had arrived as a promo in early October before the release of the standard album.  The song starts with Neil singing about Dylan and the first time he heard Like a Rolling Stone: "First time I heard ‘Like A Rolling Stone’, I felt that magic and took it home/Poetry rolling off his tongue/like Hank Williams chewing bubble gum/asking me, ‘How does it feel?’. The video begins with a quite a long still of the Folklore Centre poster and then cuts to a colour clip from the unreleased 1967 TV documentary Eat The Document, see VHS & DVD 1960s, presumably of Bob performing Like A Rolling Stone, but without audio.

Lars-Arne Klintworth's German copy of the 2CD set (no Dylan content) is Reprise 9362-49485-9.

Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Steve Miller, Eric Burdon and B.B. King are among the music luminaries featured in Born In Chicago, a new documentary that received its world premiere at the South by Southwest (SXSW) film festival in Austin, TX, 13 Mar 2013.  The movie tells the story of how American blues music was passed along from the generally impoverished black artists who helped originate the genre to younger, middle-class, white musicians who passionately embraced the blues. Other artists appearing in the film include Buddy Guy, Elvin Bishop, Paul Butterfield, Michael Bloomfield and Nick GravenitesBorn In Chicago is narrated by Marshall Chess, son of Chess Records founder Leonard Chess.  It was directed by John Anderson, whose previous credits include several Brian Wilson concert videos and the 2012 documentary The Beach Boys: Doin’ It Again.

Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88843034139 (Europe) - Blu-ray release front with sticker (my copy)

Thanks to Freddy Ordóñez Araque, Harold Lepidus and Éamonn Ó Catháin for news that amazon.com are advertising an official Sony Legacy Blu-ray and DVD release of The 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration to be released on 4 Mar 2014. Both the CD and DVD/Blu-ray releases will contain extra material, but sadly nothing new from Bob, not even his main concert performance of Song To Woody, inexplicably omitted from the 1993 releases. Because the Dylan material is the same, full details of these releases are included in VHS & DVD 1990-94.

Various Artists - "Inside Llewyn Davies" - feature film released on 10 Jan 2014 directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, Blu-ray releases: Mongrel Media BRD5276 (Canada); Studiocanal OPTBD 2542 (UK), 26 May 2014; DVD release: Studiocanal TVD24798D (Japan DVD), 17 Dec 2014:
This film follows a week in the life of aspiring folk singer Llewyn Davis, played by Oscar Isaac, in Greenwich Village, New York, in Winter 1961.
Apart from R-0919 and a song by Dave Van Ronk, all the songs in the film were performed by the main performers themselves, live on camera without lipsynching, produced by T-Bone Burnett.

R-0919-3 Farewell - out-take from The Times They Are A-Changin', recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, 6 Aug 1963, CO 78975, take 4 (2:11)
This version previously obtained a limited release in the USA on the Pacifica Archives CD-R Bob Dylan At WBAI, see 2011. In the film it is sung at the end by a character who is obviously intended to be Bob. Sonny Boy McFitzson is of the opinion that the song used in the film is not the studio version on the soundtrack album (R-0919) but the released demo version from The Bootleg Series Vol. 9 - The Witmark Demos 1962-1964, 2010. If this is true the film entry will have to be moved to
VHS & DVD: Films with Dylan Album Tracks 2010s.

Songs Heard On The "Inside Llewyn Davis" Movie Soundtrack:


Remember Records RMB 75252 (NL) - front (my copy)
The alternative Songs Heard On The "Inside Llewyn Davis" Movie Soundtrack album was released on the Dutch Remember label on 31 Dec 2013. It is an EU-only collection of songs heard in the film Inside Llewyn Davis as performed by the original artists including Dave Van Ronk, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Joan Baez, Carolyn Hester (with Bob on harmonica!), The New Lost City Ramblers, and others. This is also listed in 2013.

Dave Van Ronk:


Prestige/Folklore Records FL 14025 (USA, 1964) - LP picture from Wikipedia
This film was inspired by the 2005 posthumous memoir by Dave Van Ronk, "The Mayor of MacDougal Street", and Dave's 1964 Prestige/Folklore Records album, Inside Dave Van Ronk, which both have the same front picture. The film title Inside Llewyn Davis is the title of the album released by Oscar Isaac's character, and the picture used on the LP front and even the typeface are a recreation of Dave's album front, with Oscar in the same clothes and pose in a doorway. "The Mayor of MacDougal Street" was the title bestowed on Dave by music critic and Dylan biographer Robert Shelton. The 25-track 1989 Fantasy Records CD reissue of Inside Dave Van Ronk also includes the 1963 Prestige/International Records album, Dave Van Ronk, Folksinger.

"True Detective Season One" - TV series broadcast in the USA from 12 Jan 2014, DVD/Blu-ray releases: Warner Home Video (catalogue numbers?), (USA), 10 Jun 2014/(Europe), 9 Jun 2014:


Warner Home Video US Blu-ray release, picture from amazon.com
Thanks to "Isis 173" for information that episode 1 of this series, broadcast by HBO in the USA and on Sky Atlantic in the UK, included a "full band version" of Rocks And Gravel from the sessions for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. This is now determined to be a previously unreleased version, engineered by Ben Tanner at Sun Drop Sound Studios in Florence, AL:

R-1095 Rocks And Gravel [Solid Road] (Brownie McGhee-Leroy Carr) - studio version (stereo) from the Columbia test pressing and promotional copies of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, 1963, recorded Columbia Recording Studios, New York, 1 Nov 1962 (CO 76986 take 1, R-0017, see 1963), overdubbed by Tom Wilson at Columbia Recording Studios, New York, 8 Dec 1964 (CO 84439 take 10)


Warner Home Video US DVD release, picture from amazon.com

Harvest 2547432889 (USA)/Harvest 0602547432889 (Europe) - picture from amazon.co.uk

Thanks to Bob Stacy for his detailed analysis of this performance, which has led me to allocate it a new R-number, R-1095 instead of R-0017!

  1. In the first episode, when Rust is in a noisy bar questioning some prostitutes, Rocks And Gravel is playing in the background. It is one of the two Dylan studio versions w/instrumental backing. The level of singing and playing is several decibels down within the soundtrack. It seems staged as very far away and echoey like it is being played live but at a distance in the same room where the conversation is taking place. These effects may have been “produced” by sound advisor T Bone Burnett.

  2. The Dylan vocal performance is definitely from this take: Take 1, recorded at Columbia Recording Studios, New York, 1 Nov 1962, from the Columbia test pressing and promotional copies of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, 1963. We can tell it’s from this take (CO 76986-1) because of the verse order and in some of the words Dylan sings. As in the test pressing version, here in this True Detective episode he sings the “clouds look lonesome” verse before singing the “Mobile and KC line” verse. Here, he also sings the phrase: “Don’t my gal look fine”. In the alternate version  from 1 Nov 1962 (50th Anniversary Collection, see 2012), Dylan reversed that verse order, and he used the words: “Don’t my gal look good”.

  3. What’s particularly notable about this whole True Detective version is the backing instrumentation. There’s a tremendous amount of harmonica (jazzy but driving harp playing) – much, much more than Dylan did in his released studio versions of this song. The drumming is also more booming and emphasized to the front. I haven’t checked the piano spots but I think the guitar and bass backing are also possibly not the same as what we’ve heard in the withdrawn The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan and the 50th Anniversary Collection versions. One of the most significant differences is that the brief spacing between the verses is extended from something like 3 secs. in CO 76986-1 to full instrumental breaks (at least 20 secs) of harp & drums (+ bass) playing. I haven’t timed the total length of this version (there’s a brief 1- 2 minute flashback to another scene before returning to the scene where the Rocks And Gravel playing continues), but I think the entire Dylan vocal from CO-76986-1 is present plus the extra instrumental fills.

  4. Are all the Item 3) changes to the original CO-76986-1 the result of T-Bone’s modern day post-production? I think almost certainly not.

This whole thing bears strong similarities to the playing we’ve previously heard in the version of “Mixed Up Confusion” on the 1985 Biograph. In other words, I think what we’ve got here is very much due to the producing instincts of Mr. Tom Wilson at the 8 December 1964 overdub session. From Krogsgaard’s research, we know that take CO-76986-1 was the source used for post-production overdubbing on “Rocks and Gravel”. Although most of the “R & G” overdub takes were incomplete, as Alan points out, there were at least three complete overdub takes recorded on that session date (takes 4, 8, and 10). Take #10 was the take that was circled on the Tape Information Data sheet. It was the one taken out to (Selected Works) SW 63115, Reel #5.

My guess is that - if what we are ultimately hearing on True Detective is from that 8 Dec 1964 redub session - then it most likely is Take CO 84439-10 from that session. Like I say, T Bone Burnett may have also added in some of his own production effects, but I truly don’t believe he would have seen fit to do the same full-scale modifications today that Tom Wilson was seeking to accomplish 50 years ago.

Hopefully, we’ll all get a proper chance to listen to it in much better quality than the muffled, distant & echoey scene background that’s part of the HBO series soundtrack. Too bad, it’s not yet available on i-Tunes or something similar. BEWARE: I’ve already found two Internet links claiming to be the True Detective Rocks And Gravel – but – both are incorrect. One on YouTube was the Gaslight II version*. The other was an mp3 download of the “original” FW promo version. Neither of those are the same as what’s heard on the True Detective episode 1 soundtrack."

*Thanks to Todd S for information that this video on YouTube is actually from the Finjan Club, Montreal, Canada, 2 Jul 1962 (R-0986, see 2012).

The "electric" version of House Of The Risin' Sun comes from this 8 Dec 1964 session, and was not finally officially released until 1993 on the CD-ROM Highway 61 Interactive (see 1993). David Goldsmith is of the opinion that the track has not been overdubbed, but it has been remixed from the version included on the withdrawn version of The Freewheelin; Bob Dylan (R-0017, see 1963).

Thanks to Freddy Ordóñez Araque and Tim Dunn for information that R-1095 is included on the soundtrack album True Detective: Music From The HBO Series, produced by T-Bone Burnett and released by Harvest Records on 14 Aug 2015, see 2015. Thanks also to Lars-Arne Klintworth.

"Prime Rocks: Soundbreaking - Stories From The Cutting Edge Of Recorded Music" - eight part Prime TV series released in New Zealand in Jul 2016, Blu-ray/DVD releases: TBA,  2016:


Picture from Prime TV web-site

Fred Muller says: "The Dylan content is about five minutes of the final episode "I am My Music". Robbie Robertson relates that John Hammond Jr. invited him to Columbia Studios in New York to see a friend working on a recording which turned out to be one of Bob’s Like a Rolling Stone sessions. Dion (DiMucci of Dion & the Belmonts) tells that he was also there and comments on the song’s duration.  The audio content includes a radio DJ promising to play "the whole six minutes", snippets of Like a Rolling Stone and Ballad of a Thin Man and, besides the aforementioned interviews, we see a collage of the familiar monochrome pictures taken at the session, some with the backing musicians, Tom Wilson and Albert Grossman. The late Sir George Martin appears briefly commenting that John Lennon idolised Dylan, and Steve Van Zandt is also seen.  Al Kooper doesn’t relate, for about the millionth time, how he came to play the organ! Almost miraculously there’s no contribution from Bono or The Edge. I must admit this is the first time I’ve encountered the claims that Robbie Robertson and Dion DiMucci were present!"
