In 1965, Dylan went electric. The resulting world tour created controversy wherever he went, winding up with a series of confrontational shows in Europe, of which this is the most notorious. The group has roared through classics like Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues; One Too Many Mornings , and Ballad of a Thin Man to a definite mixed reaction. Suddenly a shout rings out in the crowd: "Judas! Judas!" Dylan responds in kind: "I don't believe you. You're a liar." He then turns to the musicians and says, off mike but clearly audible, "Play !@#$ing loud!" With perfect timing, the band (that is, The Band) crashes into a furious eight-minute Like a Rolling Stone and the rest, ladies and gentlemen, is history. This 2-CD set contains the complete concert, mastered from two different sets of tapes, includes a 56-page booklet.

Reviews:

''Live 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert'' is a two-disc live album by Bob Dylan, released in 1998. Recorded at Manchester's Free Trade Hall. It is from Dylan's famous world tour in 1966, having been extensively bootlegged for decades, and is an important document in the development of popular music during the 1960s.

The setlist consisted of two parts, with the first half of the concert being Dylan alone on stage performing an entirely acoustic set of songs. While the second half of the concert had Dylan playing an "electric" set of songs alongside his band The Hawks. The first half of the concert was greeted warmly by the audience, while the second half was highly criticized, with heckling going on before and after each song.

The album debuted on the Billboard 200 on October 24, 1998 at number 31, and was awarded and certified a gold record on November 11, 2005 by the RIAA. - Wikipedia
