Who's that Hippy-Hoppy Character Without Any Beard?

This week's Dylan Video of the Week doesn't have Mr. D, but instead features two people who played a large role in Dylan's early career. Although you wouldn't have been able to tell that from reading Chronicles, where Dylan only gives a one-line mention to Dick Fariña, probably because of David Hajdu's gossipy Positively 4th Street, which chronicles, pun unintended, the complex, competitive relationship among the Fariñas, Dylan, and Mimi's older sister, Joan Baez.
