    Description

    Bob Dylan Rolling Thunder Revue 1975 Long-Sleeved XL Crew Shirt. A rare, promotional long-sleeved shirt from Bob Dylan's 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour of America (not the '76 leg, as previously stated), as gathered by the tour's producer and our consignor, Louie Kemp. This shirt was made in extremely limited quantities for just the musicians and crew.

    This lovely brown tie-dyed shirt was never worn by Kemp, although he reports seeing Dylan wearing his on the tour occasionally. It's in a very convenient Extra Large size, thankfully, which you always hope for decades later. The tour logo and everyday stars are emblazoned on the back: "Rolling Thunder Revue / Starring Bob Dylan / Joan Baez - Jack Elliott / Bob Neuwirth."

    Measures 64" from sleeve-end to sleeve-end, 23" across the waist and 31" from top to bottom. Grades to new, unused, never-worn and never-washed condition. This lot also includes a personally signed and inscribed copy of Mr. Kemp's book, made out to the winner, including a Dylan-ephemera bookmark that Louie designed. COAs from Louie Kemp and Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: Mr. Kemp has provided us with a photo of Dylan wearing his own shirt live on stage with Rolling Thunder, now attached here. This auction, of course, is for Louie's never-worn specimen.
