Below are two videos of The Byrds, I believe from the same concert on the same day.

The first, "Turn, Turn, Turn," is their brilliant version of Pete Seeger's wonderful musical adaptation of the great poetry of The Book of Ecclesiastes.

The second is yet another of Dylan's anthemic calling cards, "Mr. Tambourine Man."

What is wonderful, aside from the great music and arrangements, is the moment when Dylan walks out on stage. The audience just completely loses it.

Also wonderful is remembering, as we watch and listen, how we all knew the words to songs like Tambourine Man, while I'm sure we had and have absolutely no idea what they mean or meant.

"In the jingle, jangle morning, I'll come following you..."
