Bob Dylan - Are You Now Or Have You Ever Been? 1974 original LP #1952, $350 + S / H
1974 original The Amazing Kornyfone Record Label LP pressing #TAKRL / 1952 Mono, "loose insert cover", cover M-, NO seam or spine splits, NO cut-out markings, NO ring-wear, vinyl M-, NO scratches, a scuff or two, plays excellent with minimal background noise in some spots.
A revealing look at the young Dylan upon his arrival in New York City in the icy winter of 1961 and afterwards. Starting off with a "ramblin' poem" read on stage about his folk hero Woody Guthrie. + Other early recordings, both live and "in the studio".
The title of this LP is in reference to the 1950s McCarthy era question "Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?" Fitting, as Bob is in his early "protest the corruption of established authority" incarnation. No song said it better than John Birch Society Blues, but on this recording, Percy's Song and Seven Curses tell the story. The sub-title refers to his ingress (or coming into) Gotham (a Batman inspired reference to New York City). Gotham, in actuality, is in Jersey.
