|From Spring 2009|
I assume most of the civilized readers of these pages would be familiar with Bob Dylan's second studio album titled The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan from 1963. The covers features Dylan walkin' down the street with Suze Rotolo, his girlfriend at the time. They're walking down the middle of the street, and there's snow on the ground. The street on the album cover is Jones Street (pictured above) in Greenwich Village, a small street west of 6th Avenue and between Bleecker Street and 4th St. (positively!), and in 2009, it doesn't look too different from the photo on the album (taken by Don Hunstein, a photographer with CBS).
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan remains my favorite of all Dylan's albums, Teri. I may still have my now sadly warped vinyl copy of it, but long ago bought the CD too. A beautiful shot and a great memory. Thanks!ReplyDelete
It doesn't look different, except there were no trees on the block - and most of the blocks back then. Can we - any of us - imagine the Village or West Village without tree lined blocks??ReplyDelete
