BOB DYLAN IN NEDERLAND VOORJAAR '65
Fifty years ago, in May 1965, Bob Dylan burst to Dutch music lovers as a thunder in bright sky. What preceded this thunderstorm in May 1965? Why did CBS Netherlands bring out the single Subterranean Homesick Blues in May 1965? How could it have been possible for Bob Dylan to appear in VARA's cameras in May 1965? Why was this excellent opportunity to introduce Dutch television viewers to Bob Dylan blown off at the last minute? And if that action had gone on, how would it have sounded?
Tom Willems answers these and other questions about the run-up to that crucial month for the Dutch Dylan fan a half century later in this book: May 1965.
