  • Renaldo and Clara Alternative


A record of a tour in 1975/6 by Bob Dylan and various folk and rock musicians, including Joan Baez, Ronee Blakley, Ronnie Hawkins and Jack Elliott, of the Eastern seaboard of the United States with the Rolling Thunder Revue and of the causes it was intended to support i.e. the plight of the Tuscarora Indians and the case of the wrongly-imprisoned boxer, 'Hurricane' Carter. This is intercut with semi-improvised scenes in which Dylan, his wife Sara and a number of musicians act out tableaux connected with the lyrics of the songs, Dylan's own life and experiences associated with being 'on the road' and the rock movement of the sixties and seventies.
