"to George You're Great And Always will be!": Bob Dylan's Lyrics; Inscribed by Him to George Harrison
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1985.
First printing of the second edition of this compilation of Dylan’s lyrics. Quarto, original glossy illustrated boards. Association copy, inscribed by Dylan to close friend and fellow legendary musician, George Harrison on the front free endpaper: “To George [surrounded by a sun] You’re Great And Always will be! Best wishes Bob Dylan/3/’86.” George Harrison wrote the lyrics to the Beatles hit, “Here Comes the Sun” and Dylan was a major catalyst for Harrison as a musician. They met in person for the first time in August of 1964 at the Delmonico Hotel in New York City, where Dylan, after misinterpreting ‘It’s A Hard Day’s Night’ lyric “I get high”, offered Harrison and his fellow Beatles their first marijuana joint. After this meeting, the friendship between the Beatles and Dylan grew and his influence allowed them to expand past the conventions of pop music, with an increased use of acoustic rather than electric instruments in their recordings and more of a focus on craftsmanship vs. music for the mass market. In the fall of 1968, Harrison came to Dylan’s home in upstate New York, where they co-wrote the song, “I’d Have you Anytime”, which is recognized as a statement of friendship between the two musicians. The song was released on Harrison’s first solo album, “All Things Must Pass”, which also included a song about Dylan called, “Behind That Locked Door” and a cover of Dylan’s song, “If Not For You”. The two musicians continued occasional jam sessions in private and onstage, but the closeness of their connection was not as apparent to the public until the formation of the Travelling Wilburys in 1988, which consisted of Dylan, Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty. In near fine condition. A wonderful association copy linking these two music geniuses.
