Striking A Blow Against Censorship

Hey, Chinese Dylan fans, I feel your pain about how your cruel communist overlords censored that Shanghai concert. So here's a little internet freedom for you. The original, acoustic, practically mumble-free Bob Dylan, from the 1964 Newport Folk Festival.

And he sings the whole four verses of Mr. Tambourine Man, not just the one-verse version made familiar by The Byrds for a short attention span mass market.

Just in case I'm wrong about the "practically mumble-free" part, you can read the lyrics here.
