On the night of July 25th, 1965, Bob Dylan strode onto a stage at a Newport Folk Festival, plugged his guitar and gave the music world a shock. Wearing a black leather jacket, the darling of the Folk movement launched into a searing, distortion filled, three song electric set that brought boos from folk purists but thrilled others. That day Dylan departed from his acoustic roots and ventured into the realm of rock n roll, a genre disdained as commercial and mainstream by Dylan´s bohemian point of view.
There´s much disagreement over why Dylan´s performance that day caused such uproar. It is said that Dylan (himself included) attributed situation to a portion of the audience´s reaction, to the poor sound quality of the performance due to the fact that Dylan was unable so do a sound check prior to taking the stage.
In March of 1965, Dylan released his first album of amplified music, featuring one side of electric songs; the second side was in his more recognizable acoustic style with classics like “Mr. Tambourine Man” and “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue.”. The electric were the more recognizable acoustic style, though another change was causing some fans to take the notice.
