Highway 61 Revisited

gramercy3

In his short film Bob Egan traces Dylan and photographer Daniel Kramer's path from Greenwich Village up to Gramercy Park on the day of the Highway 61 shoot.

The pair lunched at O. Henry's Steak House on 6th Avenue and West 4th Street before heading to an apartment owned by Dylan's then-manager, Albert Grossman.
Dylan insisted on going inside and donning his newly acquired Triumph Motorcycles T-shirt. Beyond that, according to Kramer, there was no particular plan.

Sizing up the shot, Kramer felt that the background was "all naked," so he asked Dylan's friend Bob Neuwirth to stand behind the singer. Kramer then handed Neuwirth one of his cameras. "Once he did that, it seems like something's going on," Kramer tells Egan of the photo's cryptic narrative quality. Kramer took two photos of the setup, and the second became the Highway 61 cover, a more-spontaneous counterpart to the Bringing It All Back Home image. "This wasn't even expected that we would do a picture like this," he says.

The whole amazing story of the query and discovery of the location of the album cover picture can be read on Bob Egan's wonderful website popspotnyc.com.
