From the pen of Bob Dylan, circa 1963, these are the poet-singer's handwritten working lyrics to "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall". Written here are the first three stanzas of the song, with cross-outs & lines signifying repeated words. Dylan wrote these lyrics on 8.5" x 6" stationery. Although the paper bears two significant tears in two places, has a long crease and is stained, the handwritten lyrics, in black ink, are in excellent condition - strong and fully legible. This is an incredible rock & roll artifact showing the working of Dylan's mind as he worked out the lyrics to this classic song. Comes with a signed & dated letter from forensic document examiner James A. Blanco. Estimate: $30,000 - $40,000.

Shrimpenstein was on KHJ channel 9 in LA from 1966 to 1968. This is the opening theme sung by Dr. Von Schtick (Gene Moss in a bad Boris Karloff imitation and the Tijuana Bats.
The hosts were Gene Moss (Dr. Von Schtick) & Jim Thurman (voices). Shrimpenstein was a miniature Frankenstein monster (a ventriloquist dummy who was “created” when jellybeans were thrown into the Monster Machine) Moss & Thurman wrote the Roger Ramjet cartoons & did advertising campaigns, mostly for radio. Moss later did voice-overs for LA’s channel 2 news and Disney/Touchstone pictures previews. Thurman also wrote & did voices for Sesame Street.
