Younger Than That Now
The Collected Interviews With Bob DylanBook - 2004
"Is anybody better known than Bob Dylan? The interviews collected here are really only a mouthful from the banquet. But like his songs, immediately recognizable as those of no one else, Dylan's speech is suffused with his poetry. The many milestones of Dylan's story are here: the early Woody Guthrie-inspired "finger-pointing songs," the electric paroxysm at Newport and the cry of "Judas" at the Royal Albert Hall; the life-saving motorcycle accident; the Rolling Thunder carnival; the Christian and Jewish reformations and counter-reformations; the Rainy Day Women. Of greater interest may be Dylan's curiosity, his generosity toward other songwriters and always surprising judgments, and his devotion to his muse - an incorruptibility unforeseen even at the height of his popularity - leavened by his verbal energy and midwestern humor."--Jacket.
