In just five years Dylan had become a spokesman for the counterculture- Greenwich Village the epicentre of youth style- and folk music - once played by earnest throwbacks - had been crossed with rock n roll to form a thoughtful, literate, new musical style. POSITIVELY 4th STREET relates just how folk became rock by looking at four young beatniks and their rise to fame: Bob Dylan, his part-time lover Joan Baez, her sister Mimi, and Mimis husband, the writer Richard Farina. It is that rare find - a new story to tell of a moment no one can forget.
