Like A Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan at the Crossroads

by Marcus Greil - £8.99  Faber and Faber (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571223862 | ISBN 10: 0571223869

In 1965 one song defined a generation, caught in the questing spirit of the era and changed the rules of the possible in popular music for all time. At that point it was the longest hit single to be released, at six minutes and six seconds in length, nearly three times longer than the average single.
Like A Rolling Stone reconstructs the context in which the song first appeared, in terms of Dylan's own career and the world at large. It is an analysis and critique of an artist att he height of his creative powers and offers a unique insight into the mistakes and inspirations that occur when history is being made.

"Part rhapsody, part social history and part biography, always entirely passionate."
(Richard Vine, Guardian)
