As well as Watching The River Flow

What’s the matter with me
I don’t have much to say
Daylight sneakin’ through the window
And I’m still in this all-night café
Walkin’ to and fro beneath the moon
Out to where the trucks are rollin’ slow
To sit down on this bank of sand
And watch the river flow

All Night Café is also a Hank Snow song.

Chester Anderson, Peter Stafford, Raenne Rubenstein, and Peter Knobler had subsequent periods as editors. Crawdaddy! ran until 1979, when it suffered a name change (to 'Feature') and an attempted expansion failed, leading to the collapse of the venture.

LCSH: Dylan, Bob --1941 -- Periodicals

"I first started The Telegraph in 1981, when I was living near Manchester, in the North of England. There were a couple of Bob Dylan conventions up there, at which I met some similarly enthusiastic souls - prior to this, it was long-disatnce love letters and tape trading with contacts in the States and Europe. Anyway, by this time, you may recall, Dylan had embraced Christianity and turned 40. Uncoincidentally, perhaps, the music press began to ignore him. It became harder and harder to keep up with what he was up to. What he was up to, of course, was playing shows and making records." John Bauldie

Devoted to covering the 'underground' CD market regarding many performers. Excellent reviews and information for collectors. Whilst not a Bob Dylan fanzine, strictly speaking, there is enough Dylan related content to justify its inclusion in the main listing.

Publication information from Occasionally issue No. 5, October 1985: "The Wicked Messenger is Occasionally's sister publication, being part-newssheet, part factsheet and part-gossip column. It is produced as-and-when, but generally every 2 weeks. It is available by subscribing to Wanted Man, The Bob Dylan Information Office, PO Box 18, Bury, Lancashire, BL9 0XJ, England." 

The wicked messenger was begun in December 1980 as Some Notes On Dylan (4 issues only) and initially circulated privately. When The Telegraph started in November 1981, The wicked messenger was included as loose-leaf inserts until November 1985 (# 1 to # 238), then as the main part of the Rolling telegraph supplement until November 1988 (# 239 to # 429). For a period, there was parallel publication of The wicked messenger in Look back. Since December 1988, The wicked messengers have been an integral part of Isis magazine (from # 430). (Original information from Ian Woodward, which can be read at this Michel Pomarede link)

In 2009, Ian Woodward took a sabbatical from The Wicked messenger. It is currently unclear as to whether the supplement will return.
