Dylan’s electric period, which started in 1965, spawned some of the artist’s best-known songs, which are still loved by millions of fans around the world today. Recorded in 1966 during a controversial UK tour, which has since gone down in British music history, it was released in 2008, after years of extensive bootlegging.

The controversy was due to Dylan switching from an acoustic to a full electric set after the interval, something which alienated some of his fans, with some shouting ‘Judas!’ at the American singer-songwriter. The recording captured these heckles and Dylan’s nonchalant responses.

‘The Royal Albert Hall Concert’ is well known to Bob Dylan fans. Despite the album’s title, the concert was not recorded at either of his Royal Albert Hall concerts on 26th & 27th May 1966, but in Manchester’s Free Trade Hall on 17th May. It includes famous Dylan songs, such as Like a Rolling Stone, Desolation Road, Just Like a Woman or Mr Tambourine Man.
