Bob Dylan has been the subject of many books and justifiably so as his vast body of work plays an important part in the scope of the American musical experience. Sean Wilentz—who, as a teenager growing up in Greenwich Village, was in the Dylan camp early—provides enough anecdotal evidence to make clear Dylan’s inscrutable charms, skimming eras and drawing parallels with blues artists like Blind Willie McTell as he describes the making of such masterpieces as BLONDE ON BLONDE and BLOOD ON THE TRACKS. Wilentz’s cool tenor never ceases to assure the listener that he’s highly engaged with his subject matter, and the production is further enhanced by the inclusion of several snippets of actual Dylan music.
