I LOVE that jacket! 8)


"a pristine leather jacket, packed in tissue like a grandmother’s wedding gown, that Dylan donned for his historic 1965 Newport Folk Festival appearance"

We all know that the same brown jacket adorns the cover of Blonde On Blonde, John Wesley Harding and Nashville Skyline. About this black leather one, though: I suggest that it's the same one that he wears in Dont Look Back (uncontroversial and likely); but also possibly in The Last Waltz. Anyone?

That rehearsal version of Gotta Serve Somebody embedded in the Washington post is new, right?

Scroll down to around the final quarter of the article and there's an embedded video with a picture of Dylan from 1965. The audio is a rehearsal version of Gotta Serve Somebody with horns from 1979.

Thanks for the heads up, do you know if this version is to be released on the new bootleg series?

A letter from Bette Midler 2005. I love her. She's hilarious.

It all adds up to Disc 4 Track 2 - info and playing time!

Any hope of the archive having the 10“ acetate from 1958 by The Jokers?

Or maybe his "Poems without titles"-collection 1959-1960? (http://www.theage.com.au/news/music/dyl ... 41299.html)

As a result of the acquisition of this momentous collection, the great fair city of Tulsa is going to see an increase in tourism by approximately 4 people per year.

Oh I think you have that all wrong. It will build. A collection like that will bring other things in. This is very big for that area. Dylan is already a major figure in history. He has moved way beyond a rock and roll musician as to his place in history.

There are probably a handful of other threads on the Tulsa Dylan Archive.
This “latest” one will do, rather than starting yet another...
Several headlines on today’s front page about the progress.
Like these:

Seattle architects who are renovating Space Needle win new project: designing a world-class Bob Dylan Center

https://www.seattletimes.com/pacific-nw ... attle-news



Bob Dylan Center taking shape in Tulsa with location, opening date, design firm finalized
The center will be at Archer Street and MLK Boulevard and is set to open in 2021

http://www.tulsaworld.com/scene/artsand ... ff543.html



George Kaiser Family Foundation Names Olson Kundig Lead Architect and Exhibit Designer for The Bob Dylan Center™, Set to Open in 2021

https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/ ... son-Kundig



Apparently they intend to break ground next year if all goes well.
Finally! An excuse to visit Tulsa!

^Wonderful!

It will be located on Martin Luther King Blvd. in Tulsa, in a space just southeast of the Woody Guthrie Center, which the foundation established in 2013 after acquiring the archives of the influential folk songwriter. In 2016, Dylan cited the Guthrie center as one of the reasons he chose Tulsa for his own archives.

“I’m glad that my archives, which have been collected all these years, have finally found a home and are to be included with the works of Woody Guthrie and especially alongside all the valuable artifacts from the Native American Nations. To me, it makes a lot of sense and it’s a great honor," Dylan said.


I don't remember Dylan ever talking about or mentioning the Tulsa project! Does anybody remember where he said it? Officially released statement or something?

I recorded a Dylan concert in 1997. Still have the two minidiscs (old digital format) that I recorded it on. I wonder - is this something the Tulsa Archive people would want?

Going back to the original post. I always knew the gospel era song as Cover Down, Break Through. It's listed here that way. But on BS13, it's Pray Through. It also sounds that way to me now when I hear it. But wouldn't the Archive manuscript be the same as the way it was originally typed or written?

Yea I read that. You know it’s always possible that the issue actually goes back
to the source. Maybe Dylan considered both options, Pray and Break. He’s known
to constantly tinker with lyrics long after competition, including alternate titles.
