It all happened fifty years ago: the UK tour documented by D.A. Pennebaker in the film Dont Look Back, the recording of the albums Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited, plugging in at the Newport Folk Festival, and it was all commemorated by the release of yet another edition of Dont Look Back, the groundbreaking Bootleg Series #12, The Cutting Edge and The 50th Anniversary Collention 1965, as well as a number of new books. Add to all this the release of Shadows In The Night and 87 shows during three legs of The Never Ending Tour and you have a year packed full with Bob.
