In 1965, Bob Dylan was the reigning king of the new folk music boom, but while he had earned a large and loyal audience playing earnest and elliptical songs of social protest and romantic puzzlement accompanied by his acoustic guitar, he was eager to strike out into new territory, and he shocked fans at that year's Newport Folk Festival by showing up with an electric guitar and a thrown-together rock & roll band. Later that year, Dylan took his joyous outrage on the road, with a tight, but hard-hitting, rock & roll combo, the Hawks, joining him for a series of shows in which the singer and his band (who would later rename themselves the Band) were often confronted by puzzled and vocally angry crowds. Hawks drummer Levon Helm, unhappy with the unfriendly reception, dropped out after a few dates, and after substitute timekeepers Bobby Gregg and Sandy Konikoff both vacated the drummer's seat, Mickey Jones -- a Texan transplanted to Los Angeles who had enjoyed successful gigs with Trini Lopez and Johnny Rivers -- landed the job of joining Dylan and the Hawks for a tour of Europe. A photography buff, Jones brought his home movie camera along with him, and Bob Dylan: World Tour 1966 -- The Home Movies compiles Jones' amateur footage of life on the road and off-stage with Dylan and the Hawks. In addition, Jones shares his memories of the tour, discusses his career before and after working with Dylan, and offers his own observations on what Dylan's music meant to him and to music fans everywhere. The Home Movies includes no musical performances from Bob Dylan; accompaniment for Jones' silent footage is provided by Highway 61 Revisited, a Bob Dylan tribute band. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Too much Mickey Jones Interview, almost no concert footage by alex51 December 11, 2004 - 3:47 PM PST

If this disc had at least some decent concert footage, I'd give it a much higher rating. As it stands, after half an hour of listening to him, I wanted Mickey to just shut up. There're some interesting things he says here and there about Dylan's colorful character, the negative publicity that resulted in The Band being given their name, and so fourth but most of it is so uninteresting it's just a waste of time. The concert footage that's here is extremely short and Mickey can't even get himself to zip it during the concert clips. Now, as great a drummer as you are, Mickey, and a guy I'd talk to myself for longer than this film lasts, as a DVD this is a real dud. The way this is all put together is dreadful too. The subject matter is the only thing that elevates this above a 1.
