playing electric? <<
All the above are true, as far as I can tell.
However, Bob Dylan's very first public, electric performance was part of his set at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, Rhode Island, in July 1965. He was NOT booed at this performance. He was NOT backed at this performance by the Hawks (who later became the Band), but by part of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, including Mike Bloomfield on guitar, and Al Kooper on organ (both of whom played on "Highway 61 Revisited," an album that included the song "Like A Rolling Stone"). In fact, I believe that Dylan met the Hawks around the same time, during that summer of 1965.
