FOLK MUSIC A Bob Dylan Biography in Seven Songs

by | Read by Ian Porter

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Ian Porter puts a voice to Greil Marcus's biographical take on Bob Dylan. This audiobook consists of seven essays, each based on a Bob Dylan song. Porter engages listeners with a boatload of Dylan data, even making the "you-are-there" reading of the guest list of a 1961 folk music soiree sound intriguing. Porter sounds persuasive as he delivers the author's opinions, providing a supportive tone as Marcus explains his choice of songs, defends his initial dislike of "Blowin' in the Wind," and argues why Dylan's compositions both recorded history and made it. Neither a traditional biography nor classic cultural criticism, this audiobook provides seven windows into Dylan's psyche. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
