Rare Bob Dylan concert film 'Hard Rain' discovered online - watch

A rare Bob Dylan concert film, Hard Rain, has been discovered online.

Dangerous Minds has posted a link to YouTube footage of the 1976 NBC television special. You can watch the 53 minute long show above.

The show was shot on May 23, 1976 at Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins, Colorado. It documents the Rolling Thunder Revue tour, which featured Dylan performing alongside the likes of Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Kinky Friedman, Mick Ronson and more. It sees the band playing such tracks as 'Maggie's Farm', 'Shelter from the Storm' and 'Idiot Wind', all of which were to feature on a live album of the same name.

Meanwhile, a huge, career-spanning Bob Dylan box set is set to be released this November. The 'Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection: Vol One' will be released on November 4 via Columbia Records and includes 35 of the iconic singer-songwriter's studio albums, from his 1962 self-titled debut to his 2012 LP 'Tempest', with 14 of the albums being newly remastered for the release. The collection will also boast six live recordings, including the 1972 live album 'Before The Flood' and his 1995 'MTV Unplugged' show, and a new book featuring extensive new album-by-album liner notes penned by Clinton Heylin with an introduction written by Bill Flanagan.

The box set, which will also see the singer's 1973 record 'Dylan' given its first North American release, will also come with a 2XCD titled 'Side Tracks', which will feature a plethora of non-album tracks such as singles, tracks from films, songs from 'Biograph' and other compilations. In addition to being made available as a CD boxset, it will also be available digitally as a harmonica-shaped USB stick.

Columbia Records will also release another compilation titled 'The Very Best Of Bob Dylan' on November 4, which will come in both a standard single-disc version and a deluxe double-disc format, in addition to confirming that 'Bob Dylan Complete Collection: Vol Two' will be released next year. The next instalment in the series will compile the entirety of the singer's popular Bootleg series for the first time.
