Spring 2014: For the Love of the Music

Greetings Fan Club Members & Friends,

It’s that time of year again! After a long, cold winter (in some parts of the world, anyway), Bob will soon be heatin’ it up on the road. His first tour of the year will take him to Japan, followed by a couple Hawaii dates.  

Just like little squirrels, hoarding their seeds and nuts to make it through the winter, we've at fan club headquarters been stockpiling some fantastic prizes here at Fan Club central. Now it’s time to emerge from hibernation and greet the pending spring, and Bob’s new tour, with a contest!

The prize for this contest is very exciting! The gracious folks behind the film, For the Love of the Music: The Club 47 Folk Revival, have donated a copy of the recently released DVD of the movie for one lucky winner.  This documentary explores the rich history of Club 47, the iconic Cambridge, Massachusetts folk music mecca, from 1958-1968. Plenty of wonderful artists are featured in the film, including Joan Baez, Tom Rush, Carolyn Hester, Jim Kweskin, Geoff and Maria Muldaur, Taj Mahal, Judy Collins, Ellis Paul, and Peter Rowan.

Of particular interest to readers of this email will be the Bob content in the film, which appears throughout and includes audio of two previously unreleased performances recorded at the club. In his Examiner article, Harold Lepidus provides a thorough detailing of these and other Bob bits in the film, which you can read here:   http://www.examiner.com/article/bob-dylan-content-new-club-47-folk-documentary-spoiler-alert

This movie looks back on an exciting musical time.  For this contest, however, we are looking ahead to Bob’s spring tour, which launches on March 31. To enter, simply respond to this email and let us know one song you think Bob will play at the Japan/Hawaii shows that he did NOT play on his last tour.
Check set lists at boblinks.com or bobdylan.com if you need a refresher (and don’t forget to look at the two Rome shows before you make your pick!)

Contest entries will be accepted up until 7 PM Japan Time on March 31, and a winner will be chosen after the show in Honolulu on April 29th. In the event that there is more than one correct answer, the winner will be randomly selected from all correct submissions. If there are no correct answers, we’ll pick randomly from all entries. Either way, someone's getting a free DVD with some cool Bob stuff on it! We look forward to reading all your answers! Thanks for playing and, as always,

If you see us, say hello!
