This is my single favorite live rock performance ever. The crowd, who did NOT want to hear Dylan play electric, had been heckling him and clapping slowly to throw off the tempo for the entirety of his second set. Before kicking into the last song, someone can be audibly heard yelling “JUDAS” at Dylan. Dylan responds, “I don’t believe you!” After a pause, “You’re a liar!” He then turns to the band and instructs them to “playing f***ing loud” and they respond with the best version of this great song ever performed.
