In 1964, Bob's performances featured "Mr. Tambourine Man," "The Gates of Eden," and "It's All Right, Ma," among the greatest of the acoustic songs he performed solo before "going electric" at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. Here, Bob's warming up before going out to perform on a makeshift stage in a college gym.
