The archives of Bob Dylan have found a home

 

We live in the era of hype but there are certainly few musicians who have attained the rank of legends in their own lifetime. Bob Dylan is one of them. Indeed, Rolling Stone magazine ranks him only second to the Beatles as the greatest artists ever. With already half a century of consistent musical production and influence, Dylan can be said to be one of the very few artists who has comfortably passed the test of time as he keeps creating. Now his archives have found a home at the University of Tulsa and the George Kaiser Family Foundation, in the same city of Oklahoma. The reported price of sale was for at least $15 million. More importantly, it will provide an insight into one of the most influential voices since the 1960s, in which music has been a key factor in determining the moods and swings of society, from the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights movement to the present.
