Bob Dylan Sales Soar

Published: 2005-10-04
Just weeks after HMV decided to stop stocking Bob Dylan worldwide sales for the folk legend have skyrocketed.

In September Soul Shine reported that HMV in Canada would stop stocking their shelves with anything Bob Dylan in protest to the fact that his newest CD would be offered only in Starbucks stores.

Around the same time Martin Scorsese released his two part documentary No Direction Home based on the legendary singer/songwriter.

Due to the fact that Dylan is a musical icon his CDs always sell fairly well but since the documentary was released there has been a significant increase in interest. The Essential Bob Dylan a collection of his greatest hits released last year has doubled in sales.

The documentary, which was screened at the Toronto Film Festival is currently available in stores.
