Description

From the Dust Jacket: The second of two volumes, this companion to every song that Bob Dylan ever wrote is the most comprehensive book on the words of America's greatest songwriter. Here you'll find not just opinionated commentary or literary interpretation, but facts, first and foremost. Clinton Heylin is the world's leading Dylan biographer and expert, and he has arranged the songs-including a number that have never been performed-in a continually surprising chronology of when they were actually written rather than when they appeared on albums. Using newly discovered manuscripts, anecdotal evidence, and a seemingly limitless knowledge of every Bob Dylan live performance, he has uncovered a wealth of information about the songs, leaving no stone unturned in his research. Here we learn the details of the various women who inspired the songs on Blood on the Tracks and Desire, Dylan's contributions to the Traveling Wilburys, why he left "Blind Willie McTell" off of Infidels and "Series of Dreams" off of Oh Mercy, what broke the long dry spell he had in the 1990s, what material he appropriated from other sources for Love and Theft and Modern Times, and much more. Reading this volume will fundamentally change how you hear Dylan's songs and will make you want to revisit his lesser-known masterpieces. This is an essential purchase for every true Bob Dylan fan-as a guide to the man's work, it will never be surpassed.
