Bob Dylan's Lyrics

It took me years to figure out some of Dylan's lyrics. The actual words I mean. Sometimes he's hard to understand! Finally, the internet came along and was of great assistance. Now there's a book out, two actually, that deal with where the lyrics came from and some inkling as to what they might mean and their significance.

Here's the link to my review of Still On The Road, by Clinton Heylin.

Last year, I reviewed Dylan's Christmas album and now I'm looking for it because it's about time to start listening to Christmas music again. Sure got here fast!


  1. To me Dylan is a great poet who truly has written amongst the best lyrics in the world.
    Especially the song about the devil coming as the angel of light.Tricky, isn´t it?

  2. Hi, I've just come over from Get Your Blog Followers and I'm now following this blog.
    As well as his music career didnt Bob Dylan also dabble in films for a while?
    I seem to remember he was very good co-starring with James Coburn in the western Pat Garret and Billy The Kid.

  3. Thank you both for your comments. Paul, I did a Google search for "bob dylan movies" and it found eleven.
