Tony Glover's copy of his completed 1971 interview with Bob Dylan, comprising a two-page "Notes on the Interview" document setting the scene plus a final draft of the 46-page interview. The first page is signed at the top in blue ballpoint by Dylan, "Bob Dylan," as approved for publication; it is also marked "TG" in the corner, identifying it as Glover's copy. In the introductory notes, Glover outlines the "sometimes surrealistic" process of arranging and conducting the interview, held over the course of three days in Dylan's Greenwich Village studio/office in March 1971. He makes note of Dylan's interview style—"He preferred to discuss the things he knows best—music and his life in it—usually parrying questions of current 'social' topics with a gentle sarcasm"—and concludes that the "main impression he gave was that of a man refusing to be categorized." Summarizing the interview, Glover observes that "on some matters Dylan remains invisible, in others he reveals a good deal more than he has ever before."

Interestingly—although he does discuss the arduous legal matters involved in arranging the interview, and calls it "one of the most demanding and enjoyable rides I've ever head"—Glover does not reveal that he ceded total control of the manuscript to Dylan, allowing him to edit and re-edit the material prior to publication. This was a process that continued even in this final, "approved" draft—Glover makes several minor changes throughout the transcript in black felt tip, based on changes made by Dylan in another copy. In fine condition.

From the Tony Glover Collection.
