By the mid-sixties Bob Dylan was being routinely hailed as the most important voice of his generation. He had simultaneously achieved the status of both hot commercial property and counterculture hero. Everybody wanted a slice of the man who had single-handedly reinvented contemporary music. Unfortunately, between 1967 and 1970, Dylan's output had been drastically reduced. In three plus years that followed his chaotic 1966 world tour and his "near fatal" motorcycle spill, he had delivered only two albums, and the natives were becoming restless. One such "fan", Alan Jules Weberman, decided that Bob Dylan was the only man who could save the world, and that he was the only man who could reawaken Dylan's social conscience. With a sense of purpose that had almost a missionary zeal, Weberman dedicated the next ten years of his life to studying the symbolism of Dylan's lyrics, while striving to persuade the artist that he should be writing more political protest songs and playing benefit concerts. Amazingly, the reclusive Dylan agreed to enter into a dialogue with his antagonist and the resulting telephone conversations, which took place in January 1971, are captured on this fascinating CD.
