5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating critical and eyewitness collage which also tells the story
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars rip off
The favourable view here is from Mat Snow, the editor of the book. The unfavourable review is considerably more accurate. 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...

There are countless better Dylan books than this.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bob Dylan Electric Omnibus Volume 2 (Backpages Anthologies) (Kindle Edition)
this is a very poor senseless publication..not worthy of the genius that is dylan...regurgitated articles and mindless critiques put together in a very sloppy way...total waste of time and money...buy scaduto or heylin..don't waste your time with this rubbish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating critical and eyewitness collage which also tells the story, 10 Jun 2011
This review is from: The Bob Dylan Electric Omnibus Volume 2 (Backpages Anthologies) (Kindle Edition)
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.
