Elliott Landy was in Woodstock to capture probably the most striking and intimate photographs of Bob Dylan ever taken, including the iconic cover shot for Nashville Skyline and numerous out-takes from that session, which featured shoots at several different locations including the local bakery.
Elliott was invited to photograph Bob at his home, and created unique informal images of his subject - seated at the piano, bouncing on a trampoline, playing guitar on a garden bench, sitting out on the porch, or just throwing out the trash in the back yard.
The Gibson J-200
There are people who study what guitar Dylan played at any given moment as though it holds the secret to his talent for songwriting and performance. Dylan is almost ambivalent about guitars, having played some great guitars and some stinkers. On the cover of Nashville Skyline he holds a Gibson J-200, which smells great. They ring like a bell with all the volume, mids and low-end people expect in a Gibson flat top guitar. You can hear them on plenty of recordings from country and folk artists.
Rumors have that guitar was a loaner from George Harrison. You can see the performance, along with every guitar Dylan played in Newport in The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan Live at Newport Folk Festival 1963-1965. He seems to switch guitars between sets. He plays guitars that range from primitive, to Joan Baez’s 00-size Martin, to the Stat and a Gibson SJ-200. More about the guitar on Bob Dylan’s Gear.
