A few words from the Nobel Prize winner

This is from the 1976 Rolling Thunder Review. I saw it when it hit Madison Square Garden. It highlighted the imprisonment of the boxer Hurricane Carter, who was railroaded into jail on a murder charge.

Hurricane Carter was freed years later and died in 2014.

One of the things about a Dylan concert is he doesn’t always play songs the way you know them. He can be halfway into the song and you realize, “Oh, this is ‘Tangled Up in Blue.'” And he changes the lyrics on you or, as in this case, drops an entire verse.

Anyway, Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for literature yesterday.
