He’s the Nobel Laureate who shook up the music landscape and captured the spirit of a generation. But what about the women who helped Bob Dylan succeed?
Without them we would never have heard Like A Rolling Stone or Lay Lady Lay.
This documentary from the BBC Archives explores the role of the women in Dylan’s career.
They include women like singer Caroline Hester, who brought him to the attention of Columbia Records when she asked Dylan to play harmonica on a recording.
You’ll also hear from some of his great loves, like folk icon Joan Baez and early girlfriend Suze Rotolo, who appears on the cover of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.
