The concert took place while Dylan was recording his third album, "The Times They Are A-Changin' ", and included almost every self-composed song from his contemporary sessions, including several, such as "Lay Down Your Weary Tune", which weren't featured on the finished record. It was recorded by Columbia, and tracks from this set were mixed with the Town Hall recordings on the unissued "Bob Dylan In Concert" LP (for which only acetates and cover slicks exist). Between the Town Hall show in April and this one in October, Dylan had been transformed from a cult hero on the folk scene to a national figure, an ascent fuelled by his appearance at the Newport Folk Festival in July and his cameos at several major concerts by Joan Baez. Dylan even flew in his parents from Hibbing to see the sell-out show, by far the most prestigious solo concert of his career to this point.

All Dylan ephemera from this early period is scarce, especially these small flyers intended for handing out on the streets, and few have survived.
