ATG Quirkies: Dylan Gold From the Stanford Archives Now Available Online

Did you know that Allen Ginsberg was once a Bob Dylan bootleg taper.  Recently two recordings of previously unseen and unheard Bob Dylan performances appeared on YouTube and “the bootleg taper we have to thank … is Allen Ginsberg

The Ginsberg tapes evidently came from the Stanford University library’s department of special collections, which administers a large archive of the poet’s papers. The library publicized the existence of the recordings in a blog post in 2015, accurately touting them as documents of “a transformational time in Dylan’s performances.”
