According to Bigozine2.com (August, 2016), this performance was part of a John Hammond Tribute Show. This Show was broadcasted on December 13, 1975:
"John Hammond was responsible for discovering Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Billie Holiday, Robert Johnson, Bessie Smith, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Pete Seeger, and Bruce Springsteen, among others. This show was a tribute at his retirement.
Come along on a trip with Mr Peabody, Sherman and I in the “Way Back Machine”, back back back to December 1975…
Bob Dylan was going to be on TV. This was in the day before home video recorders were common. This was also at a time when the audio portion of broadcast television was very Low-Fi. My television was a Motorola Quasar with RCA output jacks and exceptional audio quality (for a TV). The recorder was my new TEAC 4070G reel to reel. The Phase Linear auto-correlator was used in the transfer to DAT. In post-production a 3 dB boost at 300 Hz was done to give this a fuller sound.
This Bob Dylan performance is no longer hard to find. [Ed: Spincds.com recently reported that there is a limited edition/500-only white vinyl 10-inch boot of Bob Dylan’s three songs.] The true gem of this show has turned out to be those “old guys”. What a band and I just love the sound of Benny Goodman on his clarinet. Then there is George Benson playing the Charlie Christian parts perfectly on 7 come 11."
