Concert in the Park: Bob Dylan, Neil Young and The Band - Live in SF 1975

This is a great rare recording from March 23, 1975.

Bob Dylan, Neil Young and the Band played Kezar Stadium at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park for a benefit.
Bill Graham created the SNACK benefit (Students Need Athletics Culture and Kicks) to help preserve school programming for youngsters. The concert was broadcast over the air by K101fm and can therefore be shared with all of you today!

Of special interest - during "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" - somebody up on stage changes the lyric to "Knockin' on the Dragon's Door" in the first chorus. The change catches on. By the end, everybody's singing it that one! Unplanned and caught on tape!

Enjoy and don't forget to drop me a line or leave a comment to let us know what you think.

God! I didn't even know this existed. Is that Neil Young's Gibson Dylan is playing? said...

A great show for $12 ticket, best of Bay Area Music, then the rumor whispering thru the crowd, that Dylan was there too, what a pleasant surprise when he wandered onstage to join Neil & The Band for finale, and all for a good cause, money for the schools, culture for the kids.

The material on this post has been down since 2008. (It's a 2007 post)

If I get enough requests, I will repost it.

I would love to hear this stuff! I've been on a Dylan and the Band kick lately, and to add Neil Young to the mix would... I just don't know!
