my favourite parts are definitely the beginning and the end when lou majaw and the band play loudly and joyfully ‘forever young’ and ‘rainy day women’- everybody must get stoned… and the kids in a girls school sing along and laugh and scream.
my bob dylan phase was in my 20s, when with a collector’s mania i bought and knew by rote all his 60’s classic albums. ‘ highay 61 revisited’, ‘freewheeling’,
lou majaw seems like he is the dylan of the north east. every year he and his band play a celebration concert every year to commemorate dylans’ birthdays from the 60th to his 65th . these are documented through concerts and conversations with majaw, his makeshift family and his band members. in the film dylan plays, like he always does, a prophet for a generation who was so much younger then and are older than that now.
