youthelectronix asked: Question about Collection 3. The Women's Lib & Sex track is dated as being from April 1969, but at the end of the show, Howard plays The Man In Me from Bob Dylan's New Morning, which was released in October of 1970. Recording for the album (according to Wikipedia) was done in the summer of 1970, so it would be impossible to play it before fall of 1970. True or false?
First off, thanks for listening to the whole thing!
Most of the reels (hundreds of them) were undated. We look for clues throughout each interview to pinpoint the date, or at least know the month, of the interview’s taping. Knowing concert dates, album releases and film premieres has helped us immensely, but for others we have to find other clues.
Looking back at my notes for this one, they mention the war in the Suez Canal (March 69-Aug 70) happening, the concert riot in it’s 3rd day (I thought this was the Legion Park riot, Los Angeles, April 20-23rd), and the Easter March violence (Derry N. Ireland, Easter was April 6, 1969, and then again March 29th, 1970).
So, how can Dylan’s Man in the Moon be played? Either my research brought me to the wrong conclusion, or Dylan recorded the track and got Howard copy prior to the album’s release (they were friendly).
If I had the time, I’d dig into the Dylan world and find out when he recorded that version of the song -
Thanks for chiming in- and I guess this means you’re enjoying the tapes?
