"Derek Taylor was a national journalist when he was assigned to write a review of a Beatles concert. He had been expected by his editors to write a piece critical of what at that time was considered by the national press as an inconsequential teen fad. However, he was enchanted by the group and instead sang their praises. Shortly afterwards, he was invited to meet The Beatles and soon became a trusted journalist in their circle.

"As The Beatles gained national attention in Britain, Taylor's editors conceived of running a column...

Vintage original 14 x 11” (36 x 28 cm.) double weight photo, USA.

The Concert for Bangladesh really was the first large-scale benefit rock concert, and it created a kind of template for future rock charity events.  By most accounts, Bob Dylan’s appearance was the apex of the show.  He performed "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall", "Blowin' in the Wind", "It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry", "Love Minus Zero/No Limit" and...

This follow up to ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK shared many of the same talents and even the same sets, but this time the effect of rock & roll music on American youth was examined as the main dramatic plot.

Set of ten (10) vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) photos, USA. Kris Kristofferson, James Coburn, Bob Dylan, dir: Sam Peckinpah; MGM. Peckinpah's heartbreaking film ultimately is a story about betrayal. Recent restoration efforts can at least bring us close to Peckinpah's original intentions (the film, when originally released, had been heavily cut and reedited by the studio).

Bob Dylan, who plays an enigmatic character, is in four of the ten photos, and two of those four photos have studio text in blue ink on verso. Three other photos also have studio text, making for a total...
