I was working in the smaller of the 2 recording studios at the time. I brought in 2 albums for him to sign for me which he obliged. On the ‘Nashville Skyline’ album he referred to me as the Sorcerer. I don’t know why.” In near fine condition. Matted and framed, the entire piece measures 18.5 inches by 10 inches.

Dylan's ninth studio album, Nashville Skyline, was released on April 9th 1969 by Columbia Records and marked a dramatic shift in Dylan's style as it displayed a complete immersion into country music. The album was a commercial success, Paul Nelson of Rolling Stone wrote, "Nashville Skyline achieves the artistically impossible: a deep, humane, and interesting statement about being happy. It could well be... his best album." The album includes the singles Girl from the North Country (a duet with Johnny Cash), To Be Alone with You, Lay Lady Lay, and Tonight I'll be Staying Here with You.
