One of Bob Dylan's most important albums, 'Highway 61 Revisited' was released during this week in 1965. Dylan had plugged in, leaving the folk/protest crowd behind. Grabbing some great blues/rock players such as Chicago's Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper, Dylan went into the studio and that's when the magic started. The rim shot intro to the ground breaking single Like A Rolling Stone was a real call to arms for music and politics in that decade.

08/29/1966
The Beatles ended their fourth American tour at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, CA. The fans had no idea, but The Beatles knew this would be their last public performance so they brought cameras on stage to take pictures between songs. They didn't play any songs from their latest album, 'Revolver' and they ended the show with a cover of Little Richards' 'Long Tall Sally.'
