Bob Dylan Tales-4 with Dick Curtis

We were back in L. A. and it was easy for Jerry Weintraub (pictured) to be in attendance and of course be very visible as “Dylan’s Manager.” I remained in the background. Besides I looked forward to a little less pressure for the week or so at Universal. I was about to spend the rest of the year with Dylan. That would be more than enough. The concerts at the Universal Ampitheatre had mixed reviews. To be honest, more negative than positive. I could tell it bothered Bob but he didn’t let on.
