"Williams' wealth of detail, insight, & thorough knowledge of his subject add new dimensions to the artist."--CHOICE. "A voyage of rediscovery...Ambitious in scope, rich in historical minutiae & contagious in its enthusiastic tone. BOB DYLAN: PERFORMING ARTIST is that rarest of Dylan books, a substantial, compelling study of the bard not as a mythic folk poet or pop superman but as a musician,"--ROLLING STONE. "An important addition to the voluminous analysis of Dylan." --LIBRARY JOURNAL. "A gem of a book."--SAM SHEPARD. "The most infectiously enthusiastic introduction to Dylan yet."--TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT. This thought provoking book is the first comprehensive, chronological survey of the life work of this major 20th century American artist. All of Dylan's recorded performances (many from privately held audience tape recordings) are evaluated. Using this unique approach, Williams seeks to articulate what Dylan has achieved in his work, both recorded & live. The material is presented chronologically, with biographical context provided for each time period. This is a companion to BOB DYLAN: PERFORMING ARTIST (The Early Years 1960-1973) 330p. Paper 15.95 (ISBN 0-88733-131-9). Both are available from Publishers Group West, 1-800-365-3453.… (more)
