Bob Dylan comes to Tulsa for the first time since his archive was announced


Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA – Renowned musician and now Nobel laureate Bob Dylan became forever intertwined with Tulsa this year.

In March, it was announced he would entrust his archives to the University of Tulsa and the George Kaiser Family Foundation, a move that makes his concert Sunday at Brady Theater that much more special.

Dylan’s body of work reaches back more than five decades, with nearly 40 studio albums and dozens more live, compilation and albums included in 'The Bootleg Series.' “One thing I say a lot, there’s a Bob lyric for just about every situation,” said Steve Ripley, an Oklahoma native who played in Dylan’s band for a period. “When you stack up that lifetime of work, he’s just been a conduit of that from the cosmos.”

After last week, Dylan can add what could be the biggest accolade yet: Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, a move that surprised many but not Ripley. “Not surprised and thought it was about time,” Ripley said Thursday after the award was announced.

Fans of the prolific musician and writer will have the chance to further connect with his work and scholars will have the opportunity to study the thousands of pieces in the Bob Dylan Archive once it makes its way to Tulsa over the next year or so. It will be stored at the Helmerich Center for American Research, digitized and eventually featured in a public center with pieces on display for the public.

Michael Chaiken, curator of the Bob Dylan Archive, said after the announcement last week that Dylan was able to bring a literary sensibility to popular music in a way few have been able to accomplish. “He brought this poetic and literary sensibility to popular song form, on top of his influences from people like Woody Guthrie,” Chaiken said. “He melded that modernist literary sensibility into something bigger.”

Dylan still keeps up his steady pace. He regularly performs shows across the country and recently thrilled fans at the Desert Trip Festival with the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and more stars of the era.

Dylan released his 37th album, “Fallen Angels,” in May, an album of covers of well-known songs from the American song canon.

The show is set for 8 p.m. at Brady Theater, 105 W. M.B. Brady St. Tickets start at $50 plus fees and are available at bradytheater.com, by phone at 866-977-6849, at Brady Theater’s box office or at Starship Records, 1241 S. Lewis Ave.

I'll be there, front and center! Will try and take a picture or two, but it won't be my focus. I've already received the "don't take out your phone or it will be confiscated" email.

Very glad for you Time.

The first Tulsa touchdown since:
1. Archive announcement
2. Desert Trips
3. Nobel prize

Geographically & chronologically, the air in that room promises to be quite cracking with positive energy!
Enjoy adding to it!

I've contacted them and they say the only archive exhibit currently available is a photo gallery of Don't Look Back stills. I'll be going to that, but I'm very disappointed that there isn't more!

House of Earth

Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Lucinda Williams


Come to my House of Earth if you would like
For me to give your old time feelings back.

Come here to my house of good rich earth if you
Would like me teach your wife a thing or two.

Come here to this legal illegal place for joys
And teach your wife this way to grow new boys.

I’ll take you by your had and show you whirls
Of these same feelings that grow pretty girls.

I’ll wash your feet a couple of times a day
Till all your old time sorrows melt away.

You leave some drops of honey on my couch
I leave a couple of dollars in your pouch.

My house of earth is the richest land in town
I pity those dead ones that at me frown.

SO come to my house of earth and learn it’s worth
A few green folded bills to learn of birth.

I’ll kiss you in such odd and natural ways
Your wife will then find out that kissing pays.

Two times a day I’ll wash you in my tub
Ten times a day I’ll pat your skin and rub.

Call me a prostitute and a whore, too,
I do these tricks your wife refuses to.

I swear by all my bibles you won’t regret
I’ve never met a man that’s sorry yet.

I love you once to teach you all your life
The things to do when you are with your wife.

Your wife should be quite glad and proud of me
For waking both of you up these things to see.

My house of earth runs down with wine and rum
Lots of different ways here you can come.

If you do come I will be glad to see
If you don’t come I’m glad you don’t need me.

I’ll furnish red hot kisses and the hole
That wakes up sleeping sickness in your soul.

Long drive down I40 listening to Empire Burlesque and the 1978 tour. Everything is latex and glitter.

2 hours to Tulsa. First stop, Guthrie museum.

Guthrie museum closes at 3:30 for a private event. Dudes at the front desk said they couldn't say what it was, they didn't know, but everyone but the higher ups were being sent home... management and all

If half the care put into the Guthrie Center is shown to the Dylan archives, it will be worth world wide travel to all you ER members. I'm glad I spent an hour in there and wish there was more time to spend.

Thought about loitering outside the Guthrie center until Dylan showed up. Decided that was a horrible thought and left.

The "Dylan Archive" was closed. Peeped in the windows and saw a lot of framed photographs of the SHB cue card shoot, but couldn't see much else.

The two record stores in town where either a front for a head shop (Starship) or closed (Blue Moon Discs). Gonna drop by the hotel, get ready for the show, then go wander downtown.

Shoot. I was hoping you could solicit a comment about the Nobel kerfuffle.

Is it too wishful of thinking that maybe he'll be inspired and play Song to Woody or something

This was on the table behind the glass in the secure area at the Woody Archives. All around it were Phil Ochs notes, so I don't really know what it is. Any ideas?

Sorry for the verbal diarrhea... no one else to talk Bob with!

At a beautiful steak house that is playing old standards. Talk about setting the mood for the evening. Blue Moon currently playing... just heard On A Street Where You Live.

Just perfect

I'd love for him to play that Old Man Trump song Woody wrote. Or at least Deportees. But of course, neither is likely.

Woooo! Very strict this go around. No phones allowed out of pockets past the front door. "No questions asked, we see glow, you got to go." No strikes and you're out

If any of you are here and want to chat, I'll be in the front row in a blue striped shirt.
