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 as "Hard 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." 'Terrifically interesting for Dylan nuts' - "Sunday Herald." 'Manna for completists' - "Metro." 'True to form, Heylin digs deepoway deepointo the songs, mixing cold hard facts with illuminating anecdotes' - Mark Smith, managing editor, Acoustic Guitar.
