There is a great video on Youtube under "My Back Pages" featuring all
5 players on one stage. Kind of like A Byrd and the Traveling Wilburys meet Cream and Crazy Horse. McGuinn starts it off with Dylan doing the end verse with Eric doing one lead and Neal another. Just goes to show that a great song brings everybody's style to the table. Have a watch and enjoy!

Notice how a Beatle got top billing at a Bob Dylan showcase!!! :). I love George's verse in this.

Not to mention, Roger's Rickenbacker is way up front in the mix, and you can hear it clearly.

I've viewed that specific U-Tube in question perhaps a dozen times.

It's highly enjoyable, of course!

Even so, I come away somewhat disappointed and let down with it .

What I was highly expecting from this performance and never got, was each noted famous Ric owner/player, (i.e., Harrison, McGuinn, Petty et al) doing their separate Ric 12 stringer solos on the models of Ric that they made famous in their own playing styles.

And YES,! It wouldn't have been half bad to see Deluth/Hibbings
MN man cradling a Ric and doing one also.

This grand performance openly begged for such a thing, but we never got it.
Shame!

True. Though it was Dylan's anniversary, not Rickenbacker ;) Still, I can watch George play a single broken string and enjoy that. God I miss him :(

Clapton's solo in this one didn't do anything for me.

What I missed was that good Byrds harmony on the refrain "Oh but I was so much older then/I'm younger than that now." Classic.

I think it's just fascinating how McGuinn managed to shape the way I at least think of Dylan's songs. Putting that Beatle beat to "My Back Pages" and "Mr. Tambourine Man" put an indelible stamp on at least these two compositions forever. And it may possibly be said that he deserves his spot in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame for his arrangements of just these two songs. I think it's nothing short of brilliant.

It's true,JimK,the Dylan "covers" from the early Byrds albums are truly brilliant.I was just listening to them today after a long while.They seem more classic as time goes on.

Adding another footnote to the Byrds thing,McGuinn having David Crosby and Gene Clark on vocals was some serious icing on the cake.
