ON THE TRACKS, USA

   'THE UNAUTHORIZED BOB DYLAN MAGAZINE'. 1993-2003, A4, glossy paper, editors Mick and Laurie McCuiston.
   At first, there were 3 issues a year of ON THE TRACKS, that were sent in February, June and September; then a 4th issue was sent in November, called 'Collector's Issue': it was actually just a catalogue of what was available for sale through ROLLING TOMES.
   Mick and Laurie McCuiston also published the newsletter SERIES OF DREAMS.

   This fanzine looked more like a music magazine. Illustrated by never-before published photographs, it was professionnaly produced by Mick and Laurie McCuiston from their home in Grand Junction, Colorado.
   Their address was well known by Dylan collectors in the 90's as they also ran ROLLING TOMES, the goldmine where you could easily order any official Dylan stuff: magazines, dylanzines, books -out of print and news-, sheet music, songbooks, tour programmes, posters, but also T-shirts, buttons, cassettes, records and videos...  a real collector's dream! Long time before Amazon and eBay, selling Dylan stuff was a then a full time job for Mick and Laurie...
   Due to Mick's severe healh problems they had to stop the publication, what was done without any anouncement, while some people had paid for issues they never received...
   Let's forget that sad end and have a look at the great covers:

   NOTE: Though there is a gap in the numeration between Vol 10 #2 and Vol 11 #3, this is the complete available set, and the 'missing issues' do not seem to exist.
   From Vol 3  #2 no publication date was noted on the front covers, but the mention 'Display until'. This was aimed to the shops where the Fanzine was sold; it is noted '➔' on the images below. As ON THE TRACKS was supposed to stay displayed for a couple of weeks, this gives an idea on the date of its publication.
