Bob Dylan Vs A.J. Weberman – The Telephone Tapes (1967)

These are the telephone tapes made by A.J. Weberman of two phone calls (Jan 6th & 9th, 1971) to Bob Dylan regarding an article published by Weberman concerning Bob Dylan. Weberman became infamous for going through Dylan’s trash and selling the garbage he found. Rolling Stone magazine called Weberman “the king of all Dylan nuts”. Dylan, annoyed by Weberman who was constantly digging through his garbage, assaulted Weberman on Elizabeth Street in Manhattan.

Weberman expressed his unhappiness with Bob Dylan in a telephone conversation he recorded after digging through Dylan’s trash that was made into a 33 rpm LP by Folkways Records. That record has long since been deleted, but here it is.
