Starbucks brews Dylan

Coffee chain offers live recording of legendary singer

A 1962 live recording of Bob Dylan will be released by Starbucks’ Hear Music imprint to coincide with the release of Martin Scorsese’s film for PBS “No Direction Home: Bob Dylan.”

Hear Music and Sony BMG Custom Marketing Group will release “Bob Dylan: Live at the Gaslight 1962” on Aug. 30. The 10-song CD, which includes early versions of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” will be available only at Starbucks outlets.

The same day, Sony Legacy will release “Bootleg Series Vol. 7: Soundtrack to ‘No Direction Home.’ ” Track listing for the two-CD set has not been finalized.

Scorsese’s film makes its U.S. broadcast premiere on the Thirteen/WNET series “American Masters” in September.

Dylan was drawn to the Gaslight in Greenwich Village because of Dave Van Ronk, the folk singer whose phrasing Dylan copied early on. Van Ronk invited Dylan to perform during his set, which resulted in a return — paying — engagement that allowed Dylan to never pass the hat again for tips.
