Subject: Dylan Watch: Events Coming for 60
As people here know, Rick Fielding and I are disgusting bandwagon jumpers and followers of fashion, so this is as good a place to say that we will be doing Part III of our Dylan stuff on Rick's Acoustic Workshop show, CIUT.FM Toronto, Monday May 21st, 7 p.m., the week of Dylan's Birthday (May 24). Among the other notable events -- and this thread is for posting --:

Friday's New York Times had a pretty dull article on New Dylans, some of whom are on the just released new tribute album "A Nod to Bob" (Red House Records), virtually all acoustic including (among others) Rosalie Sorrels, Rambling Jack Elliot, and Canada's Hart-Rouge doing "With God On Our Side" in Quebequois!

A new Bio -- Positively 4th Street, by David Hadju, is in the stores, chronicling the famous few years with Baez and the Farinas.

David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker, has an article on Bob in this week's New Yorker, the prelude to a public Conference in New York involving various figures from Patti Smith to Christoper Ricks (the dean of Dylan lit. critics).

This month's Guitar World, Acoustic, has a fine tribute article/review on how to play the open tuning tunes of "Blood on the Tracks".

more to come I am sure....
yours, Peter T.
