Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Born Robert Allen Zimmerman in 1941, Bob Dylan is without question one of the most influential figures in the history of popular music. He not only revolutionised popular music by incorporating poetry in his folk and rock compositions, he also helped create a more inclusive and progressive consciousness in American culture.

Talking New York

Ramblin’ outa the wild West

Leavin’ the towns I love the best

Thought I’d seen some ups and downs

’Til I come into New York town

People goin’ down to the ground

Buildings goin’ up to the sky

Wintertime in New York town

The wind blowin’ snow around

Walk around with nowhere to go

Somebody could freeze right to the bone

I froze right to the bone

New York Times said it was the coldest winter in seventeen years

I didn’t feel so cold then

I swung onto my old guitar

Grabbed hold of a subway car

And after a rocking, reeling, rolling ride

I landed up on the downtown side

Greenwich Village

I walked down there and ended up

In one of them coffee-houses on the block

Got on the stage to sing and play

Man there said, “Come back some other day

You sound like a hillbilly

We want folk singers here”

Well, I got a harmonica job, begun to play

Blowin’ my lungs out for a dollar a day

I blowed inside out and upside down

The man there said he loved m’ sound

He was ravin’ about how he loved m’ sound

Dollar a day’s worth

And after weeks and weeks of hangin’ around

I finally got a job in New York town

In a bigger place, bigger money too

Even joined the union and paid m’ dues

Now, a very great man once said

That some people rob you with a fountain pen

It didn’t take too long to find out

Just what he was talkin’ about

A lot of people don’t have much food on their table

But they got a lot of forks ’n’ knives

And they gotta cut somethin’

So one mornin’ when the sun was warm

I rambled out of New York town

Pulled my cap down over my eyes

And headed out for the western skies

So long, New York

HASH(0x8bf82bac) von 5 Sternen A gorgeous volume, with or without a slipcase... 1. November 2014
Von C. Williamson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Let's get the slipcase issue out of the way first: Amazon *never* mentioned or pictured a slipcase in its description of the standard edition of this book (and, as far as I know, they never sold the $5000 edition). That error was made on BobDylan.com, which linked to Amazon. I had read the Amazon description first, and did further homework to learn that the slipcase was *only* on the expensive signed edition. So I never expected one in the first place. Some people apparently went straight to the link from BD.com and ordered it without reading Amazon's description, and were peeved when they got a non-slipcased edition. Don't blame Amazon. They got it right (including shipping -- even though a few days late, it was packed perfectly and arrived in mint condition). Yell at BD.com.

Now that that's out of the way, what do we actually have in this book? Absolute gorgeousness. It's massive, hefty, extremely well made and well bound. The paper stock is smooth and supple, and the color reproductions of each studio album (LP covers mostly) is on an even heavier paper stock. The plasticky die-cut dust jacket is functional and should keep the cloth from rubbing and staining. The ribbon bookmark is nice, but I never use them.

As for the contents, it's basically what you'd expect -- lyrics for pretty much every song Dylan's written, with a large number of alternate lyrics and their sources. There are massive amounts of white space, since the lyrics aren't cluttered together, so it's an art book as well as a reference volume. Alternate lyrics are printed in several different shades of ink, a process explained in the rear of the book. Christopher Rick's introduction is practical and plain, keeping the focus on the contents of the book -- Dylan's lyrics. I suspect there will be carping about omissions of certain lyrics (I haven't gone through the book that intently yet), but the Internet fills the gaps.

Having gotten this at the Amazon pre-order price of $120, I'm absolutely delighted with my purchase, and would like to see some reviews that *aren't* based on the slipcase snafu. Personally, I value the book enough that I'm going to have a slipcase made for it for about fifty bucks. It's well worth protecting.

Addendum: In looking through the book, I've noticed one significant omission, and that's "I'm Not There," from The Basement Tapes, which did have an official release on the soundtrack album of the film I'M NOT THERE. I wonder what other similar songs might be missing.

Addendum: Just today (12/16) got an email from bobdylan.com announcing a reprinting: "Back in Print After Worldwide Sellout!" They seem to have raised the price by $100, and list is now $300 as opposed to the previous $200. The email also repeats the previous error of saying the book is slipcased (unless they decided to add a slipcase for the extra hundred bucks). Something to be aware of...

HASH(0x8bf8f60c) von 5 Sternen For every Bob-o-phile. If you can find a copy!! 3. November 2014
Von Peter J. Gael - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I must admit that I'm a bit lost for all the complaints about not having a slipcase and being too heavy. I lead very carefully what was described on Amazon so knew exactly what I was getting, including not having a slipcase. And for those who are complaining that it is too heavy, what part of 13 pounds did you miss? To me the book is gorgeous inside and out. From the parchment like almost transparent dustcover to the gilded words and images on the cover. The paper itself is heavy stock, semi gloss and the album covers are faithfully reproduced front and back. The book goes album by album and lyric by lyric from his first album all the way through Another Self Portrait. Having his entire (or mostly so) output of musical poetry in one deluxe volume is fantastic. I ordered it the day it was announced and am glad I did as the 2500 copies sold out within days. For those of you who are as dissatisfied as you say, I'll give you my address and you can send your copy to me. I'll even pay for the postage. If you are a Dylan fan or a lover of great poetry, this book is a must!

HASH(0x8bf8f4ec) von 5 Sternen A monumental achievement 28. November 2014
Von Kirk McElhearn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As Bob Dylan has been such a prolific songwriter, his oeuvre is large and complex, and any book containing his lyrics will have to have quite a bit of girth. This new release is, I have to say, the heaviest book I own, though not quite the largest (in height and width). Weighing 13 1/2 pounds, this is not a book that is easy to read. However, it contains multitudes.

First, you need to know that you cannot buy this book at the normal price. Only 5,000 copies were printed, with 500 reserved for the UK (though it's not technically a limited edition, and perhaps there will be another print run). While the list price was $200, I notice that people are already offering copies used on Amazon for $300 or more. I ordered my copy from Amazon UK, on the first day it was announced, and was disappointed to find that my order was "delayed," with no guarantee that I'd get a copy. Then, about ten days ago, I checked Amazon UK again, and found a third-party seller was offering the book at the same price as Amazon, £81.25, 1/3 less than the UK list price of £120. I was very pleased to receive the book this morning.

The book is slightly bigger than an LP in height and width, in part because the book contains thick cardboard LP covers for each album. These are single sheets of cardboard, with the front and back of each original album printed on them. After each one of those is a list of songs on the album, then their lyrics, as well as, for some albums, songs that are alternate takes or tracks that were later released, such as on Dylan's Bootleg Series.

Each of the songs shows the original lyrics, as well as notes for alternate lyrics, with references to the recordings, such as when Dylan sings different lines or verses on officially-released live recordings. Tell Tale Signs - the Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - is the only non-studio album that gets its own section, as this contains a number of outtakes from more recent years that don't fit anywhere else.

The songs are each laid out on a single, large, left page, so there's lots of white space. If a song is long enough to flow to a second page, it takes up two pages; if not, the right page contains any notes or alternate lyrics, or is blank.

If you want a collection of Bob Dylan's lyrics, you'll certainly want this book, though, to be fair, it's more of a collector's item than a useful reference; it's too heavy and unwieldy to access easily when you're listening to a Dylan album and want to follow along. It is a true coffee-table book: you'll need a table to hold it. Don't even think of holding it on your lap. In fact, for that reason, I'm almost tempted to buy the Kindle edition, but I hesitate, as it may not be easy to navigate.

If you're a die-hard Dylan fan, you may have already gotten a copy of this book. If not, and you're willing to pay a premium, there are some copies available from Amazon. I would be surprised if the publisher didn't reprint it, given the success; it sold out in just a couple of days. But you never know. This may be one of those things where Dylan just wanted a bunch of them printed and no more. (It's worth noting that there was also a 50-copy signed, limited edition of the book sold for $5,000.)

HASH(0x8bf984c8) von 5 Sternen Deluxe Dylan - Big and Expensive - But worth it 19. Dezember 2014
Von Michael K. Hall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I won't bother to repeat in detail much of what is already here to read. The book is big, it's heavy, it's beautiful, it's not intended to be a academic interpretation of his lyrics, it is expensive, the layout is clunky from one perspective and many could make the argument that if you have the other lyric books (which I do), and you're only a fan of early Dylan, maybe this is a little much. I think it's a case of all of these things can be true at the same time.

To me, what this book "really" is, is a "collectible" for Dylan fans - I only wish I could have afforded the signed version - but is Dylan's autograph and a slipcase worth the extra $4700? Maybe if he dropped off the copy at the house and had a visit? But I digress.... Viewed as not just a "book" but something to wow like minded fans, it is quite impressive. As as easy to read, easy to hold, curl up on the couch and read along to the scratchy vinyl albums... not so much.

My thoughts on the "wasted space" issue, and excuse me if someone else beat me to this, is that i think the editors are treating Dylan's words like poetry. Pick up any poetry book and you don't see a bunch of short poems jammed together on the same page. Each one is afforded it's own, for you to contemplate, re-read, pause a moment before proceeding to the next one. Now, this is a "gigantic" poetry book, with much more space, but I think it's a reasonable theory.

Perhaps the publishers will take a page out of Taschen's playbook and when this version is out of print, re-print a smaller, more affordable version? It seems likely.

For my own purposes, I'm very happy that I did not wait, the price I paid (pre-ordered at $120.00), and with the overall quality of everything, but especially Dylan's words, which I think deserved this deluxe treatment.

HASH(0x8bf98990) von 5 Sternen Hefty Indeed! 8. November 2014
Von Steve Dossey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A massive tome.....the external measurements of a record album and a little over 3 inches thick...weighing either 13 or 19 pounds depending on the source ( my scales are broke)....My question is how do you read this thing without injuring some vital organs? Should have been issued in two volumes in a slip case....so when vol. 3 comes out in several more years it sits nicely on the shelf next to this one....Read the other reviews in regards to the quality of the content...NOTE: does not include the lyrics of the recently released "Complete Basement Tapes"
Note 2: I haven't extensively read all the lyrics in this volume...however a line in Tempest's "Narrow Way" is incorrect....He sings "I won't take you on a roller coaster ride.." Where as the Lyrics book states "I want to take you on a roller coaster ride...." totally inconsistent with the context of the song.
