Fan Bids $1,624 For Acetate of Bob Dylan’s ‘Like a Rolling Stone’
The single, which was split into two parts in order to accommodate the 10-inch single format, is from so early in the process that it has no labels. Instead, Dylan's name is written on Side A.
The element that likely sent fans into a bidding war, however, is the note from Wilson to Columbia Records A&R executive Kenneth Donald Glancy, who later served as head of RCA Records. Wilson writes: "Ken - This is the Part I and II version of Dylan single. Have edited 6:00 version also. - Tom."
