Amazing interview from February 1966 that Bob Dylan did for Playboy magazine. I’ve previously posted some of the transcript but now you can hear the interview.
Nat Hentoff, who had profiled Dylan for the New Yorker in 1964, is the interviewer.
By the way, interesting to hear Dylan praise Buck Owens in this interview, given his recent MusicCares speech.

Hear Waits talk about carrier pigeons, sacred body parts in rural China, the roots of the expression “baker’s dozen” and more.
