The links are no longer guaranteed to work, but I checked them all in December 2005.
Please think of this as an historical document, illustrating the early years of the World Wide Web.

Some tour revisions, and news of Jakob Dylan's coming album.
Drummer Howie Wyeth died.

Thursday 28 March 1996

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the highly respected Dylan magazine "The Telegraph" is on line from my site! You are welcome to step in and have a look.

Sunday 24 March 1996
I am testing a programme that lets me set up a chat and discussion forum on the Web server. I have no idea whether this will be useful or not.
If you want to try it out, please go to: (May or may not work - it's a test!)

Saturday 23 March 1996
I cleaned up some errors here and there. Thanks to Andreas G, you are now able to get to the Eulogy for EDLIS Agent Ben Ryan, and the links on the Dylan on the Internet page to Grains of Sand and DylanWEB, Bob Dylan: His Life and Work, 1964-1966 are correct.
Today the wife, I and one kid, Greg, went to a motorcycle show in Mosjøen. She bought saddle bags for her new bike, and we ate at Frank's.

I cleaned up the format of Guitar tunings, added material in the Atlas for Highway 61 and Red Wing, linked up Paul Williams' December 95 review to other December dates and discovered that part of Thad Williamson's reviews were obscured by HTML mistakes. So, go to the 1995 list and select Dec 17th.

Friday 22 March 1996
Well, HWY61-L is now giving us news that Bob will play soon, and some flames have turned into apologies, and many realize how important the list was to them. Me, I have made preparations for collecting 1996 concert setlists and reviews.

Thursday 21 March 1996
Bill Pagel posted a long list of tour dates

Wednesday 20 March 1996
They now say Bob will play Portland, Maine in April, and tickets go on sale this week.
I put Durango into the Atlas. More on the Never-Ending Band and people who played with Bob in concert. Look at the top of the Who's Who list! And then there is the great thread on guitar tunings started by Andrew Mullins!

Tuesday 19 March 1996
HWY61-L II - the Dylan mailing list is back again!! Now let's all behave and get back on topic.

The Cynthia Gooding interview is where you can hear (well, in this case, read) Bob spinning his myths about his past.

- Yes, the 5 minute radio interview went OK, they played "Blowing In the Wind" as intro and outro. I told them I don't write much myself, but thanks to people on the Net, there's a lot to find out about Bob and his music. People from more than 60 countries have visited "Expecting Rain", although about 25 countries make up the frequent visitor list.

Monday 18 March 1996
Just rumours about a possible tour...
Tomorrow morning at 0720 CET I will be interviewed by phone on local radio (Nordlandssendinga P1). What shall I tell them about Bob, the Internet and Expecting Rain? I'll think of something.

Sunday, March 17, 1996
1 - HWY61-L has stopped. HWY61-L was the mailing list mirror for the usenet newsgroup Many of us are now sadly missing this forum. I want to thank Maureen for all her efforts to keep the list working all this time! A replacement list owner is urgently required, please contact Ben Taylor if you can help. It may be necessary to find a new home site for the mailing list if HWY61-L has ended permanently..
2 - A little more on Jakob and Jesse Dylan in the Who's Who. I placed links to Bill Parr's Slow Train Coming site on the Dylan On the Internet page and the EDLIS Agents page. The Video page now includes a link to a QuickTime player for UNIX on Sun. Soon I will test out the gif-movie format, which will play a small movie as a gif in many browser windows. Check back soon!
