On a purely personal level, I am indebted to this book. In it the author recounts the entire concert that took place in Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens, on December 4, 1975. It was the first time I ever saw Bob Dylan. However, as far as being the authorative account of the Rolling Thunder Review, it falls a bit short, reaching the 'red zone,' but failing to cross the goal-line. It's biggest credit, in my view, is avoiding the more gossipy aspects of the tour, and focusing on the music. It's biggest failing, again in my view, is a maddening lack of clarification on some matters. For instance, the author claims that not all of the songs on the "Hard Rain" album were recorded at Fort Collins, Colorado, but, instead, at Fort Worth Texas. He clearly identifies two out of three of these songs. He also could have cleared-up a question that exists about the different versions of the song "Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again" that were released on the "Hard Rain" album and as the b-side of the "Rita May" 45-RPM single: was the time difference an edit, or were they recorded at different shows? I realise that this is nit-picking, but explains the football metaphors I used above. Overall, this was a highly enjoyable read, and should be very welcome by those who love the Mojo Magazine stories about Bob Dylan. I found it hard to put down, and easy to pick up again. It is a welcome addition to my vast library about Bob Dylan, and will serve well as a source of reference. The revelation about the background singing on the "Hard Rain" album alone was quite enticing and entertaining, causing me to listen to the album very closely afterwards. It also made me play the Rolling Thunder Review Bootleg Series CDs, and helped me relive those heady times.
