It’s a wonderful, wonderful book and I’d love for you to read it because I’m sure you’d enjoy it as much as I did.

The book combines many impressions of Dylan into a panoramic eye witness account of both his recorded output and live perfomances throughout the 60s and 70s. 4 Stars
-Shindig!
The fans-eye views of seeing Bob live make for a very interesting read. Some great stories from his early days as well as musicians and producers who worked with him through the 60's and 70's. Its one of those books you can dip in and out of and always find something new.
