Product Description

Product Description

From arriving in New York telling tall tales of a carnival childhood to reinventing himself from rebel cat to folk-protest messiah to acid visionary to country gentleman; then from wounded troubadour to holy roller to lost soul to backwoods phantom to genial host, Bob Dylan’s voyage through the last half-century has yielded a songbook of a beauty, variety, humanity and profundity without match. Collecting some of the best ringside reports, inside stories, critical insights and meetings with the man, the ultimate archive of music journalism, Rock’s Backpages, salutes the greatest of them all with THE BOB DYLAN ELECTRIC OMNIBUS, being POSITIVELY the best Dylan e-book anthology ever made, consisting of APPROXIMATELY 210,000 white-hot words in two volumes spanning 50 years of interviews, overviews, reviews, insights, hindsights and sidelights, as written by OBVIOUSLY the greatest names in Dylanology, among them Ian MacDonald, Al Aronowitz, Dave Marsh, Andy Gill, Michael Gray, Paul Williams, Mick Gold, Sylvie Simmons, Mick Farren, Charlie Gillett, Paul Zollo, Charles Shaar Murray, Michael Simmons, Richard Williams, Harvey Kubernik, Mick Brown, Phil Sutcliffe, Steve Turner, Nick Kent, Martin Colyer, Jon Savage, Nick Hasted, Barney Hoskyns, Ken Barnes and many more.

Both in its own right and a multi-voice companion to the Greil Marcus anthology, this is a superb and very full anthology of writing about Bob from both the heat of the moment and the coolness of hindsight. The big beasts are here: Ian MacDonald, Al Aronowitz, Dave Marsh, Andy Gill, Michael Gray, Paul Williams, Mick Gold, Sylvie Simmons, Mick Farren, Charlie Gillett, Paul Zollo, Charles Shaar Murray, Michael Simmons, Richard Williams, Harvey Kubernik, Mick Brown, Phil Sutcliffe, Steve Turner, Nick Kent, Martin Colyer, Jon Savage, Nick Hasted, Barney Hoskyns, Ken Barnes and many more. Volume 1 takes us from the start to the 1974 Band tour; Volume 2 picks up the story with Blood On The Tracks and brings it all back home. Unmissable.

1.0 out of 5 stars rip off 27 Sep 2012
By CFT
The five star review here is from Mat Snow, the editor of the book. Notice that nowhere in the blurb are we given the number of pages. I was expecting a huge anthology like, say, The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia, but this book is very short. I still haven't figured out how many pages, but I'm guessing somewhere in the region of 150. There are countless better Dylan books than this. If it were possible to return Kindle books I would certainl return this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Veritable Bobfest - Dylan, soup to nuts! 30 Jun 2011
Folks, all Dylan life is here - a timeless compendium of interviews and reviews from the Rock's Backpages archives, pieces by Al Aronowitz, Michael Gray, Mick Gold and many more... enough to keep the most doting Dylanophile occupied for at least two weekends.
