Bob Dylan: A Descriptive, Critical Discography, and Filmography, 1961-2007

Front Cover
When Bob Dylan professed in a Rolling Stone interview to be the guy who "owned the Sixties," he was not overstating. Recently, the iconic American musician, author, and poet was named by the same magazine the second greatest artist of all time, outranked only by The Beatles. This six-part, updated examination of Dylan's five-decade career provides a comprehensive analysis of his writing and recording history. It features critical commentary on every song and album, including the many rare bootleg recordings. Parts Four through Six list and discuss Dylan's numerous appearances in film, in literature, on radio, and on television. The expanded introduction further analyzes the historical import of Dylan's prolific creative output, the first four decades of his career, and his amazing twenty-first-century musical comeback.
