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?

On a side note
Listening to these interviews is incredible. It’s not someone talking about 1970, it is 1970. Like you’re in a time machine. And you’re privy. And you’re omniscient. Working hard to get the full & uncut interviews out into the world soon! Please spread the word-

I’ve decided to make a box set, in very limited edition, with some of the interviews. I think there will have to be about 12 CD’s in it, and a bunch of other cool stuff. Now, how to choose who makes it in?
