3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but contains a huge flaw!, 15 Sept. 2011
This review is from: Still on the Road: The Songs of Bob Dylan Vol. 2 1974-2008 (Hardcover)
Heylin's 2nd volume on Dylan's songs is a fascinating read, but it is not comprehensive -- it somehow omits the album and songs of "Down In The Groove"! It is as if Heylin had a massive amnesia attack in the middle of writing. Yes, it is not a major work, but I'm shocked that a mistake of that magnitude could happen!

If he fixes this for the paperback edition, buy that instead. And if not... somebody needs to e-mail the author and the publisher.

That's because the book only details originals written by Dylan, not cover versions (which most of Down in the Groove is made up of).

Then why does the book not list "Silvio", one of Dylan's most significant compositions in the 1980s? Citing that "Down In The Groove" is MOSTLY covers is not a valid excuse.

Fair point! Apologies for the confusion.

Robert Hunter wrote the lyrics to "Silvio", Dylan only contributed the melody (according to Heylin) and I think his books don't include such songs. Similarly with UGITW. For example, I can't remember "Vomit Express" being in the first volume.

PS. what are your thoughts about Heylin's dislike of most things post-1997. A bit harsh don't you think?

Yes. Love and Theft is one of the greats for me. But then I even like the Christmas album, so what do I know?

miro's mum says:
"Still on the Road" does contain info on "Death is not the End" - the only song written by Dylan that appears on "Down in the Groove" although left over from "Infidels" - all other tracks are covers - If you look at Heylin's "Behind Closed Doors" all session details are there.
