Positively Bob Dylan

Fine Bob Dylan stuff. Since 1997.

Heylin presents "Revolution in the Air"

On Monday, March 30, Clinton Heylin - author of the biography "Bob Dylan: Behind the Shades" and "Bob Dylan: The Recording Sessions" - will speak about his new book "Revolution in the Air: The Songs of Bob Dylan, 1957-1963". The most comprehensive book on Dylan’s song lyrics ever written, including songs that no one has ever heard, is the first of two volumes that tracks the creation of Dylan’s first 300 songs. It will possibly change how Dylan's lyrics are interpreted and understood. Arranged in a surprising chronology of when each song was actually written rather than when it appeared on albums, it uncovers surprising facts spanning Dylan’s career up prior to Blood on the Tracks. Newly discovered manuscripts, anecdotal evidence, and a seemingly limitless knowledge of every Bob Dylan live performance contribute to this definitive resource.
Heylin’s event will take place on Monday, March 30 at 7pm at Spoonbill & Sugartown, Booksellers (218 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11211). It is free and open to the public. A book signing and Q&A will follow.
