Statement from Elliott Landy on the back of print "Bob Dylan. Woodstock, NY, USA. 1969."
"As we left his house, he impulsively grabbed a hat from his coat rack. We walked through the woods behind his house looking for a good spot to take a picture. It had been raining. He paused for a moment, apparently inspired, and pointed to the ground. 'What about taking one from down there?' I started kneeling and saw that it was muddy but didn't stop. He began putting on his hat and asked, 'Do you think I should wear this?', smiling at the thought of how he might look in such an out of character, traditional hat. 'I don't know,' I responded as I snapped the shutter. It happened very quickly. It is best to be open in life. Had I resisted, I would have missed the unique moment which became the cover of 'Nashville Skyline'. During those days in Woodstock, Dylan was really open and in a good mood. It was a sunny day and we just followed our instincts. This was the first album cover that showed him smiling. People tell me they like this picture because it makes them happy. I think it reflects the inner spirit, the loving essence of the man behind all the inspiring music he has given us."
