Subject: Bob Dylan's 'secret' archive uncovered

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/02/16 at 10:35 am

It's been called the Holy Grail of Dylanology - an archive of 6,000 notebooks, photographs, correspondence and recordings kept by Bob Dylan, dating back to the earliest days of his career.

The existence of the treasure trove was, for many years, just a rumour. But today's New York Times reports the archive has been bought for an estimated $15m - $20m (£10m - £14m) by a group of institutions in Oklahoma: The University of Tulsa and the George Kaiser Foundation, which also looks after the archive of Dylan's early idol, Woody Guthrie.

Among the finds are an early version of the lyrics to Subterranean Homesick Blues. Then called Look Out Kid, the lyrics have been carefully typed out, then amended and annotated in pen.

"It’s going to start anew the way people study Dylan," said Sean Wilentz, the historian and author of Bob Dylan in America.
