48 Years Ago: Bob Dylan Records 'Subterranean Homesick Blues'

In what became Bob Dylan's never ending nightmare, he finally picked up the electric guitar and moved to a more blues and rock based electric sound. This did not bode well with his fans who consider him an acoustic folk hero.

 But he never turned back, and kept on going. This track, Subterranean Homesick Blues, was recorded on this day in 1965 for the album 'Bringing it all Back Home'.  It features surreal lyrics, a 'talking blues' flow and awesome 60's electric sound.

Also noting that the video clip was very innovative for it's time. Here it is below!
