Dylan : 100 Songs & Pictures (Paperback) (Ann Barkway & Chris Charlesworth & Peter Doggett & Andy Neill)
about this item
Bob Dylan is popular music's most celebrated singer/songwriter: a legend, a maverick, and a superstar who has rarely given away much about his personal life. Now comes Dylan: 100 Songs & Pictures, the highly-collectable book that depicts Dylan’s work in the context of his life, featuring the full sheet music of his most important songs plus the intimate stories behind them—all accompanied by 100 rare photographs. Fellow performers such as Bono and Sir Paul McCartney selected many of the songs featured in Dylan to represent each stage of his personal and creative odyssey, and together with the compelling and sometimes haunting photographs, they give an intimate insight into Dylan’s progression from corduroy-capped folk hero to unrepentant electric rocker. Each of the 100 songs featured in this prestigious collection is printed with melody line, guitar chord boxes and full lyrics. The result is a magnificent musical, visual and textual commentary on the life, music and influence of the one and only Bob Dylan.
