Offered for sale is a original still sealed U.S. copy of Bob Dylan Vs. A.J. Weberman – The Historic Confrontation, which was withdrawn shortly after release in 1977.
About this copy: This copy of Bob Dylan Vs. A.J. Weberman is a 1977 U.S. pressing on the Folkways label.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed. The album should include an 8 page booklet.
The wrap is fully intact except for a small 1″ break at the bottom right hand corner. Other than that, it’s just about perfect. There is a bit of price sticker residue on the wrap in the upper left hand corner.
A nice copy of a very rare Bob Dylan LP.
Background: Released in 1977 but withdrawn shortly after release, Bob Dylan Vs. A.J. Weberman is a series of phone calls between writer/agitator A.J. Weberman and Bob Dylan.
Alan Jules Weberman was a scruffy-looking resident of the Lower East Side who became obsessed with the idea that Bob Dylan was a major radical poet and sought to interpret his more elliptical songs by whatever means necessary — even searching through his garbage for clues. Eventually, Weberman managed to get something more tangible and valuable — these tape recordings of a couple of phone conversations he had with Dylan about an article that he was preparing on the reclusive songwriter. You feel like you are eavesdropping on the private Dylan — a semi-articulate, profane, thoroughly ordinary person, not the wise young genius of myth…. Folkways tried to sneak this LP into the stores, but swift legal action forced Moe Asch to withdraw it immediately. Now it’s an extreme rarity — perhaps a good thing.
