My Experience at the Bob Dylan Tempest Store

I left work at 4:00 as usual and took New Jersey Transit to Penn Station.  I took the A train downtown to 14th Street and walked through the Meatpacking district to the Dylan store on Washington Street.  I didn't know what to expect, but a saw a line around the block.  I always hate waiting on line, but I thought what to heck since I came this far.  Behind me on line was a guy about my age wearing a New York Mets t-shirt.  We chatted a little bit about Dylan as he told me that the tickets for the concert at the Barclays Center went on presale today from  I really should have known this; shame on me.  I waited on line for about 75 minutes and bought the CD and a t-shirt.  As soon as I arrived home I put it on the CD player.

With 20/20 hindsight it really wasn't worth waiting on line.  I could have waited a day and gotten it at J&R and just walked up to the cashier.  I guess I wanted the thrill of buying it the first day.  Back in the 1960s I had to save from my allowance money to buy albums.  For this album I just didn't want to download it.  Someone wrote on Facebook that he wanted to get CD autographed by Dylan, but they were out. Many people on line ahead of me bought the vinyl version.  Let me include some links for my readers:
