Abstract:

In the Autumn of 1975 when America was 'festering with Bicentennial madness', Bob Dylan and his Rolling Thunder Review - a rag-tag variety show that Dylan envisioned as a travelling gypsy circus - toured 22 cities across the Northeast US. In amongst the motley crew that included Joni Mitchell, T-Bone Burnett, Allen Ginsberg, Mick Ronson, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, was playwright Sam Shepard, ostensibly hired to write the script for a Fellini-esque movie that would come of the tour. Throughout the many moods and moments of his travels with Dylan and the troupe, Shepard also kept an impressionistic 'logbook' of life on the road. Published soon after the tour finished, it quickly became a classic for Dylan fans. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of that tour, this edition of Shepard's book was completely redesigned, and illuminated by 40 candid photographs by official tour photographer Ken Regan, many never-before published. -- Amazon.com.
