1965: Dylan goes electric

On this day in 1965, Dylan put down the acoustic and played an electric guitar:
“On this day in 1965, singer-songwriter Bob Dylan rocks the world of folk music when he performs at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island and abandons his acoustic guitar for an electric one. 
By going electric, Dylan eventually moved rock and folk music closer together.
He also infused rock and roll, known then for its mostly lightweight lyrics, with a more intellectual, poetic sensibility.”

Like a rolling stone” and “Queen Jane approximately“, from the LP “Highway 61 Revisited“, were early examples of Dylan going electric.      
At about the same time, The Byrds had released their electric version of “Mr. Tambourine Man“.    The LP also included “All I really want to do“, another Dylan song.
