Bob Dylan – Japanese Columbia Promo Poster “Listen to Dylan…When He is the Same Age as You”
A very unusual Japanese Columbia Records promotional poster issued in 2016 suggesting (via psychedelic writing) “You must listen to Dylan when it is the age that he is the same as you.” In other words, fans should listen to the records Dylan made when he was the same age that they now are.
The poster pictures Dylan’s entire album catalog arranged chronologically, with the release date of each, and the age Dylan was when the album was released–making it easier for fans to choose which Dylan album to listen to, according to their age. There is a quote at the top from Japanese novelist and illustrator Jun Miura noting “No matter what era it is, may ‘now’ be real-time. Feel the rock now; not to be tied down to past images.” In the lower right corner there is a cartoon of Dylan by Miura.
20 1/4″ x 28 1/2″. In near mint condition with one insignificant edge tear. The only example we’ve seen.
