John Wesley Harding: “The First Biblical Rock Album”

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

Here’s a clip from “Bob Dylan’s Mystical Midrash,” my multimedia show, filmed at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington, Mass., on Sat Dec. 12, 2009. This clip focuses on my exploration of how Bob Dylan drew on the Bible and the Prophets in writing songs for John Wesley Harding” to create what he himself called ‘the first Biblical rock album.” Clip includes a performance of “All Along the Watchtower” by the author/singer-guitarist.
