One of six live albums issued to document the Newport Folk Festival that was staged July 26-28, 1963, The Evening Concerts, Vol. 1 effortlessly echoes the diversity of the festival itself. The recording is dominated by three performers: bluesman Mississippi John Hurt with four songs, Sam Hinton, and the queen of folk, Joan Baez, with three. It's a balance that seems peculiar today, all the more so since the highlighted performances aren't necessarily the best aired that weekend. Looking out from Freebody Park, RI, that summer evening in 1963, protest music really did seem set to change the world. And one day, maybe it will.

One of six live albums issued to document the Newport Folk Festival that was staged July 26-28, 1963, The Evening Concerts, Vol. Included here, it is as chaotic as it is celebratory, but it feeds so naturally into the spontaneous chorus of "We Shall Overcome," which closed both festival and album, that that particular anthem is itself immediately overcome.

At the 1963 Newport Folk Festival, Dylan had been received enthusiastically when he performed "Blowin' in the Wind" with Joan Baez, Peter, Paul and Mary, and other Festival performers. At the 1964 Newport Folk Festival, Dylan performed "With God on Our Side" and "Mr Tambourine Man". On July 26, 2015, the guitar was publicly played for the first time in fifty years during a tribute set at the Newport Folk Festival honoring the 50th anniversary of Dylan plugging in at Newport. The polarised responses of Dylan's fans were exacerbated by the structure of his concerts in late 1965 and 1966; the first half would be 'folk,' Dylan solo accompanying himself on acoustic guitar and harmonica; with the second half 'rock,' Dylan and the Hawks with electric guitars and a full rock and roll combo.
