NEW YORK, NY.- On 10 December 2010 Sotheby’s Fine Books and Manuscripts sale will include the original lyrics to arguably Bob Dylan’s most famous song – The Times They Are A-Changin’ (est. $200/300,000).* The song is an important one in Dylan’s musical output - it was the title track of the first album to only include songs Dylan had written and it was first performed at Carnegie Hall on 26 October 1963. The lyrics go on view this Saturday 4th December at Sotheby’s in New York.

The lyrics once belonged to Kevin Krown, a friend of Dylan’s, who introduced him to the Greenwich Village music scene on the artist’s first trip to New York in 1960. It was through Krown that Dylan came to know Eve and Peter MacKenzie at whose 28th Street apartment Dylan would frequently stay and compose. Dylan was know to have a lax attitude towards keeping his manuscripts and it is largely due to Krown and the Mackenzie’s diligence that pieces such as this have survived. In addition to its musical significance the song became an anthem for the changes taking place in the US in the 1960s. The deeply political lyrics are Dylan’s call to action for various groups to participate in the social revolution that was about to sweep America. The song though has outlasted the time in which it was written and continues to be covered and used in advertising campaigns.
