BOB DYLAN:
Hank Williams was the first influence, I would think, I guess, for a longer period of time than anybody else..

Bronstein Interview, Montreal, CDN, Feb 20, 1966.


SOME HANK WILLIAMS SONGS COVERED BY DYLAN:

JOHN BAULDIE:
I love the scene in the hotel room with Joan Baez when Dylan sings the Hank Williams songs. Can you remember how long he was singing for that night?

D. A. PENNEBAKER:
Oh, he sang a lot. I have a lot more film of that. They did one marvellous one, Joan and he, that I was going to use, but it was a little too long: "Good news travels slow, but bad news travels like wildfire." Do you know that song? It's a great song, and they sang it together.

Jul 15, 1986 interview; reprinted in John Bauldie (ed.), Wanted Man: In Search of Bob Dylan, London, 1992 (paperback edition with additional material), pp. 59-60.




There are several commercial Hank Williams Pages by Mercury/Polygram records, none of which, however, provide any real in-depth information.
