Seems appropriate in light of this week's release of No Direction Home, Scorsese's documentary chronicling Dylan's early years as an artist.

I just picked up the book No Direction Home, a biography about Dylan which isn't related to the documentary. It's supposed to be pretty definitive and from what I can gather upon a cursory glance at it is that Baez has been pretty tweaked by the fact that Dylan has been rather ambivalent about her importance or impact on his life and career. He rarely mentions her and when he's asked about her, he speaks of her on a very professional level.

Have you ever seen Don't Look Back? It's kind of pitiful watching the way he treats her...........

I've haven't read No Direction Home. I have read Behind the Shades (revisisted), Positively Fourth Street, On the Road with Bob Dylan, Chronicles, vol. 1 and a couple others...........

I have seen Don't Look Back. It appears he's hard on a lot of people. Comes with the territory I guess. Picasso was supposedly particularly brutal on those who loved him. Even Baez mentions in this book something about wishing that he were able to join the human race and relate to other people, but that would require him to stop being a genius, or something to that effect.

There are so many books out there about him. Any of those that you read that you recommend?

I'd recommend all of those I listed, but it depends on what you're looking for. Behind the Shades covers his whole career (up to a point). It's a little dry, but has a lot of info.

On the Road with Bob Dylan and Positively Fourth Street are better reads. On the Road... is a chronicle of the Rolling Thunder Review tour that was a pretty good, fun read. The author basically tagged along with the tour and bugged everybody.

Positively Fourth Street focuses on Dylan, Joan Baez, Mimi Baez and Richard Farina and their relationships during the early 60's rise of folk. Also an entertaining read.

You must be a big fan of Network, especially Arthur Jensen's speech to Howard Beale:

Arthur Jensen: You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems; one vast, interwoven, interacting, multivaried, multinational dominion of dollars. The world is a business, Mr. Beale; it has been since man crawled out of the slime. Our children will live, Mr. Beale, to see that perfect world in which there's no war or famine, oppression or brutality - one vast and ecumenical holding company, for whom all men will work to serve a common profit, in which all men will hold a share of stock - all necessities provided, all anxieties tranquilized, all boredom amused. And I have chosen you, Mr. Beale, to preach this evangel.

Howard Beale: Why me?

Arthur Jensen: Because you're on television, dummy.

Not missing the mark too much, I must say. I think I liked the script for Network more than the actual movie, which got more than a little hammy. My Weltenshaung at work is governed more by Life in Hell era Matt Groening.

Here's what fascinates me most about Dylan: His transformation from folkie imitator to artist/icon. One of the things that really piqued my interest from the documentary was when this one fellow talked about how one moment Dylan was just this kid traipsing around the Village singing other people's songs and the next time he saw him months later he had become this full-blown talent on his way to superstardom. What happened during those months? Not the why of it, that's inexplicable, but what were the circumstances surrounding it? And who were the people who witnessed this powder keg of artistic energy exploding? Positively 4th Street (the book) sounds like it captures that "moment" better than the other two. Is that right? No Direction Home (the book) seemingly does.

By the way, MR, where did you get that pic in your avatar?

It's been a while since I've read either one, but I think, for the specific period your talking about, the Shelton book may be the best one. From what I remember, Shelton wrote a glowing review of an early performance and they became friends after than. Shelton, I think, was a big part of the early push in NY.

I think Dylan met Grossman sometime in that period, so that was probably an influence in his development. Suze Rottolo (his girlfriend at the time and with him on the cover of Freewheelin') was an activist and was influential in steering him toward the "finger pointin'" songs. Seems like throughout Behind the Shades he was always looking for a muse.....

I don't remember where Positively Fourth Street picks up. I think they may have met sometime around that period, but I don't think Joan Baez became a real factor until later........

And I found the picture via a google search.....
