Rare Dylan books

Re-reading Positively Main Street in its shiny new edition for review here on The Dylan Daily next week, I came across, in author Thompson’s revelatory interview with The Bridge fanzine in 2005, mention of two rare Dylan books:

* Folk-Rock: The Bob Dylan Story, by Sy and Barbara Ribakova (1966)

* Bob Zimmerman’s Blues: Dylan in Minnesota, by Dave Engel (1997)

I’ve never seen either book, and would be indebted to any Dylan Daily reader able to throw light on them: if you have a copy, please email a few details – content, treatment, style, tone, your opinions…

Thanks, in advance.
