Boomer nostalgia

Watched DA Pennebaker’s movie Bob Dylan Dont look back. Fun with the commentary turned on.

I liked seeing Joan Baez, whose song “We Shall Overcome” bought on this wave of nostalgia when I heard it the other day. I find it sad that once I did believe that we would overcome and now… I merely want to believe it.

Snapped these two shots while watching… I like the way we have performers, then a movie maker, then a DVD then a digital photo on a PC, then an image on the web nearly 40 years later. The Joan Baez one I quite like with its Picassoesque look, though her music is not of that ilk. The movie itself though is a stylistic mirror of the Dylan touch and era.
