For this film, Gilbert interviewed Jerry Wexler, Mickey Jones, Barry Feinstein, Jack Elliot, Scarlet Rivera, Rob Stoner and Rubin “Hurricane” Carter. Revealed is divided into eras of Dylan’s career beginning with the early Columbia days, the 1966 electric tour, his 1974 comeback tour and the Rolling Thunder tour.
Gilbert highlights Dylan’s obscure film Renaldo And Clara as well as his Christian phase, which includes a rare Dylan onstage sermons. Jerry Wexler and Spooner Oldham provided sharp insight to recording with Dylan during the Slow Train Coming sessions in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
