What becomes a legend most? If that legend is Bob Dylan, it's an encyclopedic source book providing details about the songs and albums recorded by one of the 20th century's most important artists.
The Encyclopedia includes descriptions of Dylan's 44 officially released albums and collaborative efforts, including year of release, record company, serial number information for all formats (LP, CD, and cassette), track list, musicians, and descriptive analysis of its place in Dylan's career and concerns. In addition, it offers historically detailed entries on each of the more than 700 songs Dylan has recorded or performed in more than four decades of touring, including composer information, the album on which it appeared, and discographic sources of its significant recorded versions by other artists. The book also provides detailed biographical sketches of more than 100 musicians, songwriters, and other individuals associated with the artist, and a selected list of films in which he has been involved, as well as a film/videography of every major Bob Dylan cinematic project.
