A decent overview of Bob Dylan's early career. The interviews on the audio CD were what I found most interesting. I wish they had included more background on those. I felt the reproduction tickets and posters were a little tacky. ( )

I actually found this book on a discount cart at a Barnes and Noble for 10 $ .. I think the next couple of days I returned to the store and it was in section for about 40 $.. I definitely got a deal, the replications are very neat, makes you re-live the experience a little. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0743228286, Hardcover)

Created as a companion piece to Martin Scorsese's PBS documentary No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, The Bob Dylan Scrapbook, 1956-1966 is a visual and educational treat for old and new Dylanphiles alike. Written by Robert Santelli, the director of Seattle's Experience Music Project and curator of the museum's Bob Dylan's American Journey exhibit, the book is very well researched and presented in a scrapbook format filled with removable reproductions, including handwritten lyrics of "Gates of Eden," "Blowin' in the Wind," and "Chimes of Freedom," programs of Dylan's historical performances, various bits of memorabilia, and endless amount of photographs. The Bob Dylan Scrapbook, 1956-1966 will provide the new Dylan fan with loads of background information and anecdotes that were left out of Scorsese's film. Lifelong Dylanphiles will likely know Dylan's late 1950s to mid 1960s history already, and will be enchanted by the endless reproductions that are strategically placed throughout the book. If that wasn't enough, the book also includes a 45 minute CD of 18 interviews, ten of which appeared in the No Direction Home documentary. If you ever want to open someone up to the world of Bob Dylan there is no better place to point them to this incredible trifeca: No Direction Home: Bob Dylan on DVD, No Direction Home: The Soundtrack (The Bootleg Series Vol. 7) on CD, and this wonderful book. --Rob Bracco

Offers insight into one of the musician's most eventful and formative periods, tracing his arrival in New York and providing on the accompanying CD excerpts from early interviews and his 1965 performance at the Newport Folk Festival.
