BOB DYLAN, RETREAT TO QUIET, 1967-69; PHOTO ESSAY #3 (2018): Watching the river flow

Although there were no photographers and phone photos allowed at the recent Bob Dylan concert in Auckland, the promoters and Dylan's management provided images to the media to cover any articles written.

Unfortunately none of them were of much visual relevance because they were not recent. (A selection came from 2009).

But there such an interesting series of images of the very young Dylan -- just into his 20s when he was the emerging folksinger and soon to be the "spokesman for a generation" -- which we posted here.

And then when when he electrified his music and the world here.

These are terrific images so it seemed a shame to let them go unused.

So here we present another photo essay of Bob Dylan when it all came to a grinding halt and he retreated from the frontline and headed into the country for another remarkable reinvention which came with the John Wesley Harding album in '67.
