Bob Dylan’s ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ New Version May Fetch £1 Million at Auction

A one off Bob Dylan recording could sell for 1m

The re-recorded studio version of the great musician Bob Dylan’s ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ is set to go under the hammer on Thursday and is expected to fetch a whopping £1 million. Dylan wrote this song in 1962.

Bob Dylan, whose influence on music is incalculable, re-recorded ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ in March 2021 with longtime collaborator T Bone Burnett.

“It felt holy. It always feels holy for me, playing with Bob – and I think we did it in one take, if I’m not mistaken,” T Bone Burnett told BBC News.

According to BBC, the track showcases a unique type of record combining the materials used in CDs and vinyl. The sound quality and durability are also expected to be better.

The new version of the song, recorded live in the studio, gives a new dimension to the track, with Greg Leisz on mandolin and Don Was on bass. 

However, only one copy of ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ is available, and only one Dylan fan will get to own it.

“This is the only copy of Bob Dylan’s 2021 recording,…. that will ever be manufactured. No other versions of this recording will be released or sold,” Christie’s states in its catalogue.
