Netflix describes the documentary, “Setting out across a 1975 America exhausted politically, economically and socially, a busload of musicians – assembled by Bob Dylan – hits the road in search of new creative horizons,” The statement continues, “The resulting tour, the Rolling Thunder Revue, would reveal a Dylan rarely seen: playful, mask-wearing, intense, expansive, rejuvenated.”
With the film’s release, a 14-disc box set of recordings from the Rolling Thunder Revue tour, along with five full-length performances, is expected to launch on the 7th of June. Watch the documentary trailer by clicking on the video below!
