Avid concert poster collector, Andrew Hawley from Vintage Rock Posters, announces his search for original 1965 Bob Dylan boxing style concert posters. Dylan played 72 concerts in 1965. According to Hawley, “This was a heady time for Dylan. After releasing four acoustic albums, he had become known as the spokesman of a generation. In late spring, he traveled to England and Scandinavia to play his last acoustic folk only shows. When he got back to the States, things changed on July 25 at the Newport Folk Festival when Dylan pulled out an electric guitar and went electric. Half of his fans loved it, and the other half hated it. He recorded three albums that year - “Bring It Back Home”, “Highway 61 Revisited”, and “Blonde on Blonde”. These albums are still considered important and influential today.”

Hawley adds, “In March, Joan Baez joined Dylan for a short tour. Eric Von Schmidt created a beautiful Art Deco poster for these concerts. Rumor has it that Dylan did not like it so a boxing style concert poster was printed featuring a stock picture of Baez and Dylan for the remaining shows on the tour. He started another tour after the Highway 61 Revisited album was released. The tour blank used a Daniel Kramer stock photo with him standing with a guitar on stage. The bottom was white so venue and ticket information could be printed. Black, blue or red ink was used to print the venue information. It was 14 x 22 inches in size and used to advertise the show in the cities he played.” For examples, of Bob Dylan boxing style posters, go to http://www.vintageconcertposterbuyer.com/boxing_style/bob_dylan.html.
