Estimate: $100+

Description

Tony Glover's personally-owned presentation of the CD liner notes for The Bootleg Series Vol. 4: Bob Dylan Live 1966, The 'Royal Albert Hall' Concert, released on October 13, 1998, for which he received the prestigious Deems Taylor Award (comparable to the Pulitzer Prize for Music Writing). The foamcore display measures 15 x 20, and features several panels applied with Velcro, consisting of the CD, pages of the liner notes authored by Glover, and an image of Dylan. Glover proclaimed this famous concert as "one of the great confrontational performances of the 20th century," observing: "Bob Dylan, intent on following his own inner vision, wasn't the first artist to NOT give the audience what they wanted… but he may have been the loudest." In very good to fine condition, with several dings and creases to the display, and a blank panel to the upper left.

From the Tony Glover Collection.
