Awesome behind the scenes look at seminal tour
Jeff Cavanaugh | 11/13/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"With all due respect to the reviewer above - no full Dylan performance is really not the point - this is Mickey Jones' personal footage of the 1966 tour - an insider's view that is well worth the money - aside from some very cool never seen footage of the Beatles, Mr. Jones has great interviews with some of his 'other bosses' - Johnny Rivers, Trini Lopez, and some cool inteviews from other quarters. (Charlie Daniels on the making of Nashville Skyline is awesome) all through the DVD Mr. Jones makes a great 'everyman' in his observations and obvious love for the principals involved - after all, he was the backbeat for many 'soundtrack of the 60's' songs - if I were the drummer for a tour featuring Bob Dylan and The Band, and just remembered I had some home movies stashed away (in metal cans - the film is some of the best preserved footage I've ever seen) you can bet I would share them - Thanks for Sharing, Mickey! (It's a thing of beauty)"
A Documentary on Some Guy's Tour With Dylan - But Dylan's No

"I am a huge Dylan fan and have watched entire documentaries and tv specials just to see two words uttered about him but "1966 World Tour - The Home Movies" stretches the bounds of legitimate Dylan enthusiasm. To say it will add nothing to your Dylan collection would be an understatement. In fact, you might be just as likely to catalog this video under "miscellaneous" in your movie library, as it is more about some guy who Dylan employed as a drummer for a while in 1966 than it is about Dylan. I don't know if Dylan refused to allow the release of actual 1966 video footage of him or if he just avoided this guy when the camera was rolling. Regardless, if you want to see good "home movie" footage of Dylan, this is not the place."
Bob Dylan - 1966 World Tour

"I would recommend this movie to any true Bob Dylan fan. Mickey Jones gives us a close look at the behind the scenes part of Dylan's legendary 1966 tour. Although the 8mm footage in the film does not have sound, Jones gives an in-depth commentary through out the entire movie. Interesting travel footage as well as different shots of Robbie Robertson, Garth Hudson, Rick Danko and the rest of the band/crew helps to keep the film entertaining"
