Revisionist Art: Thirty Works by Bob Dylan by Bob Dylan

4.0 out of 5 stars Great pictures!, 26 Mar 2014
I don't know if Bob Dylan really made these or if it is all a big joke on the people who complained about his paintings that were based on ancient photographs, but I think they match his lyrics exactly! They are funny, dark, sexy, provocative, intelligent and mind blowing! It is like listening to Bob Dylan's 115th Dream!
Understanding Bob Dylan: Making Sense of the Songs&hellip by Tony Beck
I expected more of this book. It claims to explain how to understand Bob Dylan (well, you know before you even begin that is not going to happen) but it really only puts some of his lyrics into pretty simple text analytic frameworks. If you know a little about text analysis you will not read much new in this book.

The book is mainly about explaining where Bob Dylan's lyrics are similar to other famous writers' lyrics. A lot of opportunities to discuss interesting points about his writing are not covered.

Still, it is always interesting to read about Bob Dylan.
Bob Dylan: 30th Anniversary Concert [Blu-ray] [201&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Bob Dylan
5.0 out of 5 stars Great concert video, 26 Mar 2014
Lou Reed's performance is probably my favorite, it is a great song and it really swings - but actually, most performances are really good, here.
