There is one chapter covering the years 2005 to 2009, when Muir admits he has lost the plot and is increasingly alienated from the whole NET phenomenon. Some readers will be surprised to learn that Muir is redeemed from his descent into the Slough of Despond (as he calls it) by Dylan's album Christmas In the Heart, which he finds very moving. Muir's book is both a critical narrative of Dylan on stage, and also a self-help manual in which an addict strives to understand the nature of his addiction.
The sheer scale of Dylan's achievements has rendered most critics either speechless or reaching for one of two clichéd responses. Bob is a genius. Or Bob is utterly past it, and should put himself and us out of our misery. There is no mystery why Dylan keeps touring. He has answered this question many times, and one pleasure of Muir's book is that it's a very intelligent filleting of the interviews and press comments that have accompanied Dylan's 25 years on the road. "You hear sometimes about the glamour of the road, but you get over that real fast.Read more ›
'One More Night' contains 'Razor's Edge' and continues where the previous book left off. It is filled with integrity, knowledge, understanding and the enthusiasm of a long-time, well-informed fan of Bob Dylan.
When I read about the Never Ending Tour, I am looking for accounts that give me more than either a blow-by-blow set list run down or the dry spiel of an uninformed journalist commenting on Dylan's voice/arrangements of the songs/quality of the sound system etc.
I want to read something that makes me feel how a member of the audience would feel being there. To experience following a tour through another's eyes and heart. An expression of a personal reaction, but one that is immediately identifiable and connected.
This book is filled with rich background information. Through the careful use of anecdotes, quotations and interviews, the author archives the prevailing atmosphere and feeling of the times - especially when going back to the 1990s and seeing the transformations through the last 20 years - it is fascinating.
Andrew Muir is always honest in his writing, which I admire. It is refreshing to find someone who is so thoroughly informed and knowledgeable without being supercilious, thoughtful without pretentious depth, obviously passionate about the music and art without being fawning, open about the failures and disillusionment without being excessively cynical or unfairly and harsh... right on the money.
Besides which, for a book so filled with facts and details, it is a very entertaining read with enough anecdotes and humour along the way to make it an exhilarating ride.Read more ›
This subject needed a critical appraisal-by someone who can write-and someone who understands what a balanced argument entails. A challenge was to step back and place it all in context and this book does exactly that.
