Young Robert Zimmerman

March 29-30, April 1-2, 4-6, 8-11, 1968


YOUNG ROBERT ZIMMERMAN, performed at the Avalon Theatre, St Lucia, in March /April 1968, was obviously inspired by, and formed a tribute to, Bob Dylan, who contributed so much to modern musical culture on a global scale.

The revue was written by William Young (Yang) and produced by William Young and Graeme Johnston.

The revue was organized by Anthony Job, David Hunter, Lecki Ord, Richard Lambourne and Graham Curtis.

The Stage Managers were Paul Brammer and Phil Downey, with Claire Heike attending to the Front of House.

The programs were produced by Doug McKay.

The clip was shot on Super 8 film and the backing track was performed live each night, in sync with the projection.
