Rare Bob Dylan Acetate Discovery
Music historian Jeff Gold recently stumbled upon quite a discovery at a Greenwich Village apartment building several blocks away from Dylan’s old place: 149 rare acetate records, carefully stored away for more than 40 years and simply marked “Old Records.”
They all date from the sessions for Dylan’s albums Nashville Skyline, Self Portrait and New Morning, about equally split between 10” discs with a single song and 12” discs with multiple songs.
These 149 acetates provide a remarkable look into Dylan’s working process at the time. MORE HERE, HERE & HERE
