In September 1975, Bob made a then very rare TV appearance, paying homage to the great John Hammond who had signed him many years earlier (along with other greats, and had recently inked Springsteen). This video has just been posted to YouTube, not sure if available before. Bob does "Hurricane" (not yet on Desire) and "Simple Twist of Fate" (from his greatest album of the period, Blood on the Tracks). About a month later I caught the opening show in his fabled Rolling Thunder tour, in Plymouth, MA. Rock history, you might say.
