For the years in between, Gilbert visits Woodstock and Greenwich Village, New York, where he investigates Dylan's secluded life before his return to the road in 1974. Gilbert recreates the singer-songwriter's 1966 motorcycle accident, pays a visit to Big Pink, examines Dylan's first encounter with The Beatles, and even confronts fanatic Dylanologist A.J. Weberman.

Lauding Lauderdale: Jim Lauderdale’s music is a mix of country music, rockabilly, bluegrass, folk, pop and soul, but based on the country music he had grown up with - George Jones, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. He once described what inspires his work in an interview with Artist Direct: "Country music is timeless, and it transcends musical boundaries in a way. Its memorable moments. Its emotions, realizations ... the things that tie everybody together. But country has a definite sound: lonesome, life-affirming, strong, on the brink, tragic, beautiful and hopeful - often all at once." Jim Lauderdale: In Concert Ohne Filter is available on DVD.
