Dylan's episodic and highly personal memories of the 1960s’ counterculture movement get a sympathetic and intelligent reading from Nick Landrum, himself a songwriter. In the folksinger's familiar twang, he details Dylan's pilgrimage from his native Minnesota to Greenwich Village, in search of his idol, Woody Guthrie. There he finds the ailing Guthrie, as well as Joan Baez, Dave Van Ronk, and a host of others, many of whom became household names. Woodstock, a motorcycle trip to New Orleans, and an intimate look at Dylan's creative process all figure in this rambling story, which is clearly and eloquently brought to audio. It's easy to believe you might be listening to Dylan himself. Apparently, there are two more volumes to come. J.B.G. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
