CDs were staggeringly expensive in the 1980s and, with back catalogue LPs by the likes of Love, Dylan and The Doors retailing at £3.49 at that time, it's no surprise that many of us were reluctant to switch.
The Beatles' releases in 1987 being the catalyst for many people to take the plunge, of course, though I didn't until 1997. 

I bought a jobbing, not particularly exciting, Percy Sledge compilation a few years ago from about 1988 for 99p in Oxfam. The original sticker on the CD gave the price as £17.99!

From his upcoming album "Shadows in the Night,"  Bob Dylan covers Frank Sinatra's Full Moon and Empty Arms...

It's based on Sergei Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2, 3rd movement...

I heard about Dylan's first UK concert being 50 years ago this week when I listened to "Breakfast with The Beatles". It's in hour 2, "Bob and the Beatles", at 15:52.

Dylan came over to London in the winter of '62/'63 (the coldest winter on record in the UK!) to do the BBC play and he certainly played some of the pubs/folk clubs in London then, though I don't know if they'd be termed concerts as such.

You won't mind if I knock Dylan doing Sinatra on the head.
I've come this far without ever buying a Sinatra record (apart from Nancy) and I don't plan to start now.

I don't know why Bob Dylan did that.  Maybe he's going into his Crooning Phase...

She really was! I was reading about Dino, Desi and Billy (after hearing "I'm a Fool" at Friendly's of all places!) and it was talking about all the 60's celebrity's kids who were following in their dad's footsteps. It painted them all with a broad brush, saying none of them were very good and that they wouldn't have had hits if their dads weren't famous and so on. They included Nancy in this and I thought that was really a very poor assessment!
