Citigroup's Latest Toxic Asset: Bob Dylan

The times, they are a-changin' indeed. Bob Dylan's Christmas album, to be released next month, will be offered early to Citibank customers as a banking tie-in. Reuters reports that Citibank will make "Christmas in the Heart" available to its 13 million rewards customers the week before the album's October 13 release. But Dylan hasn't entirely abandoned his socially conscious 1960s aesthetic—he's donating all his proceeds from the Columbia Records release to charities that feed the needy.
