Bob Dylan – 1968 “Tribute To Woody Guthrie” Concert Program, Schedule Insert (First Show After Motorcycle Crash)
An exceedingly rare program and schedule insert from “A Musical Tribute To Woody Guthrie” featuring Bob Dylan and many others, which took place at Carnegie Hall in New York on January 20, 1968. This historic show was Dylan’s first public performance after 18 months of self-imposed seclusion after his motorcycle crash.
“A Musical Tribute to Woody Guthrie” took place three months after Guthrie’s death, and the stars that performed during the two shows that day (3:00 and 8:00) attest to his influence: Bob Dylan, Judy Collins, Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, Richie Havens, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, Tom Paxton, and Odetta. Dylan performed three Guthrie songs: “Grand Coulee”, “Mrs. Roosevelt” and “I Ain’t Got No Home”, and as part of the ensemble during “Bound for Glory” and “This Land is Your Land”.
The program includes a page with the lineup, a page with a Columbia Records advertisement featuring Dylan and Seeger, and a line listing for the concert. Inserted inside is an 8 1/2″ x 11″ mimeographed lineup of the event’s program, with the admonition that “There Must Be No photos Taken At Any Time…Cameras must Be Checked At The House Manager’s Office”.
A historic Dylan artifact marking his re-emergence on the music scene. The only example we have ever seen.
