Bob Dylan’s entire catalogue of songs, one of the great treasures in music history, has been acquired by Universal Music Publishing Group for an undisclosed sum.
The catalogue includes such modern standards as Blowin’ In The Wind, The Times They Are a-Changin’, Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door, and Like a Rolling Stone, a body of work that may only be matched by the Beatles.
The New York Times, which first reported the deal, said it was struck directly with Dylan.
Dylan topped the Rolling Stone list of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time in 2015 and the song Like A Rolling Stone was named by the magazine as the best ever written.
