Childhood friend to sell Bob Dylan tape.
Back in the late 1950s, the now famous singer Bob Dylan was nothing. During that time he was an ordinary boy, simply known as Bobby Zimmerman who would spend hours playing guitar and singing with longtime pal Ric Kangas whom he asked to record the sessions.
And now, as the ordinary boy has become a sell-out singer, the old record, consists of three songs sung by Dylan and another featuring Kangas on guitar, would surely cost expensive. Approvingly, Kangas said that one Dylan expert appraised the tape at about $100,000, an amount he never thought before.
Lucky for Kangas that he still had the old recording with him. Thus, he will have the precious set auctioned through Heritage Auction Galleries in Dallas on Oct. 6-7. In the meantime, a publicist said Wednesday September 27th that Dylan had no comment.
