bill dylan vs bob wilson

Amidst the Dylanmania: “Indiana’s Bill Wilson drove to Nashville and knocked on producer Bob Johnston’s kitchen door in 1973. Bob let him in to play a few songs, liked it, and rounded up his crew that played on Dylan’s “Blonde on Blonde”. They recorded “Ever Changing Minstrel” that night, and it was released on Columbia [CBS] in 1973. The album is now reissued with rare photographs, notes by reissue producer and Tompkins Square label owner Josh Rosenthal, and remastered from the original tapes.” Dixit Rosenthal: “I bought Bill Wilson’s “Ever Changing Minstrel” lp for a quarter in January. Never saw it before. Tracked down Bob Johnston (Dylan, Cohen, Cash) who produced it. He said Bill just showed up at his house one day. They made the record that night, with some of the guys who played on “Blonde On Blonde”. Bill and Bob never saw each other again.” Wilson would die of a heart attack at the age of 46, in 1993. Reissue label: Tompkins Square, cat. no. TSQ2684, rel. 2012-09-18. And do check that Sonobeat / Sonosong story for Wilson’s 1969 demo lp!
