There is a story in the op-ed section of the NY Times about how Columbia records almost missed out on "Like a Rolling Stone." Apparently, sales and marketing at the record company weren't too pleased with rock'n'roll, plus the song was too long, so the record was stuck in limbo. But a fan of the record (and the writer of the piece), took an acetate to a club for the DJ to play, and everyone loved it, including important DJs. As the writer tells it, he saved the company from making a huge mistake.
