One of the most iconic pieces of clothing related to Bob Dylan, the red jumpsuit that Sally Grossman wore on the cover of Dylan's album “Bringing it All Back Home”. “Bringing it All Back Home” was the fifth studio album by Bob Dylan and considered one of his best. The album features Dylan, as well as Grossman sitting in an intimate setting. The Red Dress is iconic and very recognizable for any Bob Dylan fan. This is a part of our Albert Grossman collection. Albert Grossman is one of the most well-known and successful managers in music history, and his legacy in the music industry is on-par with the legendary acts he worked with. Grossman predominantly worked in the Folk and Rock and Roll scene, and managed stars such as Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Odetta, the Band, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian & Sylvia, and Peter, Paul, and Mary.

Grossman moved into the club business in the 1950s and had an idea of a “listening room” to help touring artists have a more authentic experience with club goers. As he got more involved in the live shows at his venue, he began managing bands he worked with and grew his reputation by assembling the group Peter, Paul, and Mary in 1961. In 1962, Grossman signed Dylan in what was the start of a friendship that shaped music history. Grossman had Dylan stay in his Woodstock home — where Dylan shot the album cover for “Bringing It All Back Home” — and Dylan loved the area so much he bought a home there. Grossman was an aggressive negotiator with his artists, but helped them achieve great success. He charged a 25% commission as opposed to the industry standard of 15%, and famously said, “Every time you talk to me you're ten percent smarter than before. So I just add ten percent on to what all the dummies charge for nothing”. Comes with a Letter of Provenance and a Gotta Have Rock and Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
