Bob Dylan Sells His Private Archives For Millions
The collection includes Dylan's Blood On The Tracks notebooks, handwritten lyrics to Chimes Of Freedom, Ballad Of A Thin Man and Dignity, along with footage of the singer performing in Toronto's Massey Hall in 1980, New York's Supper Club in 1993 and rehearsing for the 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue. His manuscript for book Tarantula is also included.
The archive was originally estimated at $60m, according to the New York Times. Dylan says: "I'm glad that my archives, which have been collected all these years, have finally found a home and are to be included with the works of Woody Guthrie and especially alongside all the valuable artifacts from the Native American Nations. To me it makes a lot of sense and it's a great honor." Read more here.
