Publishers Blurb : This is the second volume in Clinton Heylin’s magisterial survey of the songs of Bob Dylan. The first volume – Revolution in the Air which is now available in paperback – charted the rise of Bob Dylan from his first jottings to the full expression of genius in songs such asHard Rain Gonna Fall and The Times They Are a Changin. Still on the Road begins in 1974 with Blood on the Tracks, the album filled with masterworks such as Tangled Up in Blue and Simple Twist of Fate that heralded a watershed in Dylan’s creative journey, and continues to chart his never-ending fascination with music and the art of song up to 2006’s Modern Times. Praise for Revolution in the Air: ‘Beg, steal, borrow …a compelling history of Dylan’s mercurial song writing.’ Mojo, 5-star review ‘Better than any biography could ever be, and a crucial Dylan book’ – Jonathan Letham. ‘Valuable resource’ – “Observer”. ‘A gripping new book by Dylan scholar Clinton Heylin so is so far in the deep end that its borderline insane . . [yet] has been devoured with a ravenous, insatiable appetite, and I have even made notes in the margin’ – Mark Ellen, “Word”. ‘Already has the critics singing its praises’ – “The Herald”. ‘Terrifically interesting for Dylan nuts’ – “Sunday Herald”. ‘Manna for completists’ – “Metro (nationwide)”. ‘Another epic work from Heylin’ Ham & High ‘True to form, Heylin digs deep way deep into the songs, mixing cold hard facts with illuminating anecdotes’ – Mark Smith, managing editor, “Acoustic Guitar”. ‘A magnum opus that anyone curious about, fascinated by, and devoted to His Master’s Voice will want to read and ponder’ – Jonathan Cott, author, “Dylan”, and editor, “Bob Dylan: The Essential Interviews”.
