Do Think Twice

At the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, Bob Dylan famously plugged in and used electric instruments to give a rock-'n'-roll charge to folk music. Less famously, in a '94 concert on MTV, Dylan plugged out, giving the alt-rock generation an intimate acoustic look at his musical mastery. That concert, MTV Unplugged, will be released this week on DVD for the first time, along with four extra songs--including his classic Desolation Row--that weren't in the original TV broadcast. --By Christopher John Farley
