Item 280 - Bob Dylan and Joan Baez Catalog 382 (Jan 2012)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $1,354.80 (includes buyer's premium)


Vintage ballpoint signature, “Bob Dylan,” on a 2 x 3 light pink slip affixed to a 4.5 x 4 light blue album page, and a vintage ballpoint signature, “Joan Baez,” on a light green 4.5 x 4 album page. Both signatures were acquired at the Manchester Free Trade Hall on May 7, 1965, before Dylan’s concert. Accompanied by a 2011 letter of provenance from the original recipient of the signatures, which reads, “These autographs were collected outside the Manchester Free Trade Hall, as Bob Dylan arrived with Joan Baez for his performance that evening, in May 1965.” In fine condition, with a bit of light soiling to both signatures. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks.

Although Dylan travelled to London in 1964 for a ten-day press tour, two television appearances, and a single solo performance at London’s Royal Festival Hall, it wasn’t until the following year that nationwide audiences had a chance to see him in concert. The seven-city jaunt in May 1965, amidst unprecedented publicity was a rousing success, even though Dylan’s relationship with the press was strained, to say the least, he received rousing positive reviews. Unfortunately, Joan Baez, who accompanied Dylan to the U. K., did not appear as a guest performer at any of the concerts. It was also during this tour that D. A. Pennebaker’s fascinating documentary, ‘Don’t Look Back,’ in addition to the promotional film for ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ were filmed.

Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
