The Best Bob Dylan Magazine In The World

Anthologies of past material?

There have been two:

All Across The Telegraph

Edited by Michael Gray and John Bauldie

was a collection of the "best of" the first 25 issues of The Telegraph. It was originally published in hardback in 1987 the UK by Sidgwick & Jackson and then appeared as a Futura paperback, also in the UK only, the following year. Unfortunately, the hardcover is long out-of-print. Copies of the paperback were still be to seen in some shops up until a few months ago, but now that too seems to have sold out. It shouldn't be too difficult, however, for the diligent searcher to turn up a copy. Best place to start, perhaps, is in the Small Ads section of The Telegraph, The Shopwindow. Sale, Trade and Want ads are free to subscribers. You should, obviously, be a subscriber!

    Wanted Man: In Search Of Bob Dylan

    Edited by John Bauldie

    was primarily a collection of some of the interviews that have appeared in The Telegraph. Published in hardcover by Black Spring Press in the UK, there were paperbacks in the USA (Citadel Underground), in Spain (under the title Se Busca, by Celeste Ediciones) and in Japan (Shinko Music Publishing Company). The UK paperback, published by Penguin, contained some material that was not in the original hardcover edition. I know that the UK books are now gone from the shops. I've no idea about the others.
