4.0 out of 5 stars Anatomy of a genius, 25 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Revolution in the Air: The Songs of Bob Dylan 1957-1973 (Songs of Bob Dylan Vol 1) (Hardcover)
The previous reviewer has it right; the author is quite intrusive (puts 'boom boom' after a feeble pun, for example) but his heart seems to be in the right place. The book would be greatly improved by the full lyrics to each song; it succeeds in demystifying a few things while leaving the genius of Dylan to speak for itself; a good place to start would be with Stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again where he describes how it is possible to hear the song evolve on CD and then to hear the definitive version. People who don't like Dylan (or Shakespeare) must be avoided at all costs. Recommended.
