In today’s episode of Marc Maron’s podcast, he interviews John Hammond, who talks about being friends with Dylan and introducing him to Bloomfield and the Band.
The story starts at about the 50 minute mark.

Unbelievable, just checked-he wrote a book, with Irving Townsend.
It's called John Hammond on record.

That was by Hammond's father, John sr.

Thank you for posting this, great interview.
John Hammond, what a killer. Cool as ice.

I thought the story about Bob meeting the Hawks was that Columbia had a secretary who knew the Canadian music scene, and when Bob was looking for a band to tour with she suggested Robbie & co. In my screwy remembering of things, this was also the same woman who introduced Leonard Cohen to Judy Collins.
That ring a bell to anyone?

Anyways, Hammond's version makes a lot more sense and seems like a more natural progression of things.
