Quote from: Spotted Horses on September 01, 2022, 06:43:51 PMSo happens I was listening to two Dylan albums from late in his career, Tempest and Rough and Roudy Ways. I like Dylan best when he is being sarcastic and/or surrealistic and there are some tracks that rank with his best, such as Narrow Way, Long and Wasted Years, Tin Angel, False Prophet, Black Rider, Crossing the Rubicon.
Quote from: SimonNZ on September 01, 2022, 05:21:36 PMOnly now pivking up on this:Bob Dylan Announces New Book 'The Philosophy of Modern Song'"Bob Dylan has announced a new book titled The Philosophy of Modern Song, which will be released on Tuesday, November 8 via Simon & Schuster. It marks his first book of new writing since 2004's Chronicles: Volume One and his first since winning the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016.Dylan began working on The Philosophy of Modern Song in 2010. The collection includes over 60 essays that Dylan wrote about artists like Stephen Foster, Elvis Costello, Hank Williams, and Nina Simone. According to a press release, Dylan "analyzes what he calls the trap of easy rhymes, breaks down how the addition of a single syllable can diminish a song, and even explains how bluegrass relates to heavy metal. These essays are written in Dylan's unique prose. They are mysterious and mercurial, poignant and profound, and often laugh-out-loud funny. And while they are ostensibly about music, they are really meditations and reflections on the human condition. Running throughout the book are nearly 150 carefully curated photos as well as a series of dream-like riffs that, taken together, resemble an epic poem and add to the work's transcendence.[...]"

Quote from: San Antone on September 02, 2022, 09:29:06 AMLittle Richard, Alis Lesley*, Eddie CochranI pre-ordered the book as soon as I saw it announced. Not only is Dylan an excellent prose writer but his knowledge of roots music and American popular songs are inexhaustive.* Alis Lesley is an American former rockabilly singer, once billed as "the female Elvis Presley."
