Tony Glover's archive of audio cassette tapes and transcripts of his telephone conversations with Bob Dylan in 1969. Includes three audio cassette tapes, marked "Dylan - Phone, 1+2/69 / 4/69," "Dylan - Phone - 4/18/69 / Robbie Robertson - LA 3/69 + 4/15/69," and "Doors/Glover Concert - 11/10/68 / Dylan - Phone 5/21 + 6/21/69," plus seven original typed transcripts of their conversations between January 1969 and June 1969. They discuss the 'Basement Tapes,' new LPs, the local music scene, covering standards, record sales, his album Nashville Skyline and duets with Johnny Cash, singles of 'I Threw It All Away' and 'Lay Lady Lay,' and bands like The Doors and Creedence Clearwater Revival. In these conversations with an old friend, Dylan is at ease—a departure from the cautious tone typically struck with journalists during this period. With candid thoughts on his own work and the music industry at large, these phone calls offer a fascinating look into Dylan's mind at a time when he was the most elusive star in America. In overall fine condition.
