Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Jesse Kornbluth

"Lou Levy, top man of Leeds Music Publishing company, took me up in a taxi to the Pythian Temple on West 70th Street to show me the pocket sized recording studio where Bill Haley and His Comets had recorded 'Rock Around the Clock.'"

I would read the third section first, and then the first and second, if you can slog through them. There is just so much name dropping in the first section that even if you know most of these names in the folk scene of early 1960's mostly NYC it's just that: name dropping.

Bob Dylan tells his story like verses from "Tangled Up in Blue": scattered, picturesque, and not necessarily chronological. But the structure is unimportant. Chronicles Vol. 1 is proof of Bob Dylan's rightful place in music history as one of the greatest song-writers of all time. What is most remarkable should actually be no surprise: Bob Dylan's prose is immaculate. The book is simply a pleasure and delight to read.
