Post subject:  Bob Dylan photograph

Hello everyone,
I am a new contributor to the forum and I hope I have selected the right place to post my new topic. I have recently chanced upon a Dylan concert photo in a garage sale. It is an original Fujifilm photo of Dylan performing live (in the 80s, I suppose) but I don't know anything else about it. Would anybody know what concert it was and if the photo is worth anything?
Thank you,
Luc

The guy behind Dylan is Mike Campbell (Heartbreakers guitar player)... so 1985 (farm aid) or 1986 or 1987.

This one is Farm Aid 1985.

I'm pretty sure I've seen it before, so nothing rare.

Thanks for your comment. It so happens that I found a poster of the same photo for sale on a Japanese website today. Yet it is intriguing to have an original photo and not a reproduction...

Yes, I'm familiar with that pic too, but I'm not sure where I saw it. The "underscore" between the words (Bob_Dylan) pressed in the back, makes me think that maybe the original was a high resolution file and not a "photographic negative". Because the underscore is highly regarded to informatic systems. The back of my own photos from these years had only numbers, but I'm not a an expert, of course. Maybe someone can explain this thing so much better.

You can be pretty sure that this picture it's a professional shot from Farm Aid 1985. September 22, Champaign (Illinois).

You can be pretty sure that it's not an original and it's not rare; then the question it's where it came from and how old is it? A) It's a fan self-made picture, you know, you can have a high resolution file and you can obtain a photo paper copy in your nearest photo store or B) It's a merchandising store-bought (or web bought) picture, obtained from a high resolution file too. In both cases I would say that it's not a very old copy, (early 2000's max) based on my suspects about the numbers pressed in the back. The numbers in the back are the key to know a little more about its procedence. The size of the photo maybe can help you too, if it's a standard size or not...

If you have some other information, the picture was inside an envelope or something that can add some information?

Hi, thank you so much for your interest, i'm really grateful!

The guy I bought it from originally found it inside a box of LPs he had purchased from some other guy. There was also a photo of Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry live. A similar series of number on the back +"Aerosmith".

8"x10'' is the size of both photos.

Does that help?

Ok, similar numbers in the back, merchandising then. There must be lots like this, this is the kind of stuff you can find in some record stores or in those stores that sells t-shirts, patches and those kind of things. It's not a rare picture or unseen picture, but it's a really nice picture. :wink:

That makes sense, thanks. Too bad it's not one of a kind but I agree it's a pretty cool shot. Quite difficult to make those shots now in concert. The security guys will jump in your face. I'm going to the Luxembourg concert, can't wait!
