Dylan Boycott

Music retailer HMV Canada has pulled Bob Dylan's CDs from its shelves to protest a deal to sell his new "Live at the Gaslight 1962" album exclusively


Music retailer HMV Canada has removed all of Bob Dylan's music from its shelves. Not without reason, but the chain was angered by the singer's 18-month deal with Seattle-based coffee giant Starbucks to exclusively sell his new album, "Bob Dylan: Live at the Gaslight 1962," in its stores. The album already went on sale Aug. 30 at Starbucks' 4,600 shops in the United States and Canada and will not be released to other sales outlets for 18 months. Thus, HMV said it would not return Dylan's albums to its shelves until the Starbucks' window runs out.
