Amazingly, rave reviews continue for the Bob/Willie tour. Meanwhile, you’d better strengthen that bookshelf…  

1.  Chronicles – The first volume of Dylan’s “eagerly awaited memoirs” is due out on October 12th 2004. The book will run to 304 pages and is published by Simon and Schuster. The book will be followed about a week later by an updated edition of Lyrics: 1962-2001, a compendium of lyrics to nearly every Dylan song. 

2.  A lot of Fussball - The organisers of the 2006 football World Cup, to be held in Germany, want Dylan to perform at the opening ceremony! 

3.  Is It Rolling Bob? - Sam Shepard’s Rolling Thunder Logbook, due out in November priced £13.50, will come with a new afterword by T-Bone Burnett. 

4.  Here’s A New Song - Dylan collector Alan Fraser has obtained an acetate of two ‘new’ and unknown recordings of Mr Tambourine Man and Eternal Circle. He believes Eternal circle to be from Berkeley 22/2/64 (dedicated by Bob to "...anybody who plays an instrument. It's not so easy"), but Alan is unsure of the origins of the former.  Opinions are requested and both songs can be downloaded. 

5.  Take Me On A Trip - You can take a virtual Java virtual tour of 161 West 4th Street  at http://nycpov.galvinized.com/VR_viewer.php?vrid=39&nbh=10012
