ROBERT SHELTON

 
The late Robert Shelton, ex New York Times Folk Critic and the author of No Direction Home, would have been 85 today. The puzzlingly fuzzy photograph above, which I took in 1973, is shown uncropped and more clearly at www.michaelgray.net/photos.html  -  where it's one of several different pictures added last week.

You are rather harsh about Sydenham - where Robert Shelton ended up - in the book. Was it really that bad? Obviously, it's a come-down after Greenwich Village, even after Brighton.

As a part-time resident of Forest Hill/Sydenham, I often wonder whereabout Shelton lived, with his vault of Dylan goodies - there certainly isn't a blue plaque!
