Among the many highlights: a twenty-two-year-old Bob Dylan tells how he came to write "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"; Janis Joplin, in a rare interview, recalls her teenage years in Texas spent listening to old Leadbelly and Bessie Smith records; Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie talk about their sense of kinship with fellow jazz geniuses Joe Oliver and Charlie Parker; Leonard Bernstein pays tribute to composer Marc Blitzstein's musical masterpiece The Cradle Will Rock; Ravi Shankar describes meeting the Beatles in London in 1966; and opera divas Edith Mason and Rosa Raisa remember the thrill of singing onstage with Enrico Caruso.
