9781849015981: Still on the Road: The Songs of Bob Dylan Vol. 2, . 1974-2008

This is the second volume in Clinton Heylin's magisterial survey of the songs of Bob Dylan. The first volume - "Revolution in the Air" which is now available in paperback - charted the rise of Bob Dylan from his first jottings to the full expression of genius in songs such as "Hard Rain Gonna Fall" and "The Times They Are a Changin". "Still on the Road" begins in 1974 with "Blood on the Tracks", the album filled with masterworks such as "Tangled Up in Blue" and "Simple Twist of Fate" that heralded a watershed in Dylan's creative journey, and continues to chart his never-ending fascination with music and the art of song up to 2006's "Modern Times". Praise for "Revolution in the Air": 'Beg, steal, borrow ...a compelling history of Dylan's mercurial song writing' - Mojo, 5-star review. 'Better than any biography could ever be, and a crucial Dylan book' - Jonathan Letham. 'Valuable resource' - "Observer." 'A gripping new book by Dylan scholar Clinton Heylin so is so far in the deep end that its borderline insane . . [yet] has been devoured with a ravenous, insatiable appetite, and I have even made notes in the margin' - Mark Ellen, "Word." 'Terrifically interesting for Dylan nuts' - "Sunday Herald." 'Manna for completists' - "Metro." 'True to form, Heylin digs deepoway deepointo the songs, mixing cold hard facts with illuminating anecdotes' - Mark Smith, managing editor, Acoustic Guitar.

About the Author:

Clinton Heylin is the most distinguished writer on Bob Dylan in the world. He is the author of the Bob Dylan: Behind the Shades Revisited and Bob Dylan Day by Day as well as Revolution in the Air for Constable. He has also written on all aspects of popular culture including The Act You've Known For All These Years: A Year in the Life of Sgt. Pepper and Friends; Despite the System: Orson Welles versus the Hollywood Studios; and Babylon's Burning: From Punk to Grunge. He lives in Somerset.

Review:

Clinton Heylin, master explicator of the Dylan canon, has however improbably, sorted it all out for us through the tangled '80's and beyond, completing what he started in Revolution in the Air. The book is essential. -- Jonathan Lethem Rarely does and author put an artist's creative process under such forensic scrutiny-and stitch his findings together with such success Metro Herals Ireland Highly recommended. Choice Highly recommended. Choice
