Andrew has also written extensively for a number of other Dylan fanzines and has appeared in broadsheets and on TV and radio being interviewed about Dylan during the last twenty years. He has also written CD liner notes for Bruce Springsteen releases and plotted and story-boarded a DVD on Springsteen's influences. Andrew is currently working on a book on connections between William Shakespeare and Cambridge.

Like Dylan himself, Andrew Muir knows how to keep on keepin' on. Muir sets out to chronicle Dylan's Never Ending Tour, which began 25 years ago and shows no sign of ending. There are 17 chapters that offer detailed accounts of Dylan's NET shows on a year by year basis, spanning an insane gamut of concert experiences. There are transcendental moments when Dylan's way with a phrase, or a harmonica riff makes Muir quiver with ecstasy There are abject moments when Dylan seems to lose it completely, barking semi-complete lines into the darkness, and even stumbling off stage in the middle of a song. His band are nothing if not dedicated, maybe deadpan is a better word. The band play on.

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.

This is a very good book. It hits exactly the right note in each chapter. The section describing a concert at Barrowlands in Glasgow is compelling-as too, is the "lost years". There is a wise plea from the author for others to add their voice-contemporaneous accounts are so important-yet after reading this book it will be hard for anyone to find anything worthwhile to add, this book is that good.

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.

Highly recommended.

Andrew Muir's exceptional sequel to 'Razor's Edge' is a very welcome addition to my Dylan bookshelf.

'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.

Mr. Muir's book is an essential acquisition for Dylan die hards and casual fans alike. That's a difficult line to navigate but the author expertly does so here, appealing to the likes of myself - whom when Dylan is touring another time zone must know the setlist from the night before before a solitary corn flake is consumed - as well as to those that have dipped into the church of Dylan Live on a more casual basis. It never professes to be encyclopaedic (being all the more enjoyable as a result) but instead focuses on one man's entirely subjective account of a passion that has accompanied him for a considerable chunk of his adult life. It's a passion that has voyaged through peaks and valleys at various points and Mr. Muir doesn't shy away from scathing criticism or lavish praise when he feels same is called for. The Never Ending Tour is an important part of Dylan's immense career and this is to date the most compelling and entertaining account of one man's experience of it. A Must.
