The whole thing about BPB being weird in interviews is also a myth. Many of the interviews I have listened to or read in recent years are quite similar to the way the book approaches things, in a conversational way. Perhaps it says more about the more mainstream magazines than the artist. In 20 years when the work is treated with the respect it deserves I am sure this myth will still exist.
It is a must for any BPB fan as Will Oldham discusses all aspects of his musical and acting career to date. In fact at some point through the interviews he must talk about nearly every song that he's recorded.
During the interviews Will reveals the inspiration behind many songs and albums, how they evolved and who was involved, together with information about his approach to the recording process. Of course it's not just dry facts for musos about record production, you get to understand Will's outlook on music, films, touring, work, family etc. as well.
The book is split into eleven chapters and pretty much covers BPB's career chronologically. Extras include a short introduction by Alan Licht, illustrations by Magnus Johnstone (who also did the cover for 'Arise Therefore' and 'Wai Notes'), a discography and a strange timeline that starts off with Captain Cook discovering surfing in Hawaii.
Any downsides?...well, not really, though some photos might have been a nice touch.
