MICHAEL GRAY, ‘OUTTAKES ON BOB DYLAN’ – MY REVIEW IN THE DYLAN REVIEW 3.2.

I have reviewed Michael Gray’s excellent essay collection ‘Outtakes on Bob Dylan: Selected Writings 1967-2021’ (Pontefract: Route, 2021), in the Dylan Review 3.2 (Fall 2021 – Winter 2022), pp. 45-52, at : https://thedylanreview.org/2022/01/15/review-of-outtakes-on-bob-dylan-selected-writings-1967-2021/

I hope this review of a book by a major Dylan scholar will be of interest to Dylanites generally.

This Dylan Review issue is extremely interesting and, alert to new events in the Dylan world, contains, among much more, reviews of Dylan’s film Shadow Kingdom and the latest Bootleg Series (No 16), Springtime in New York and a joint review of the recent Emma Swift and Chrissie Hynde cover albums.

The journal is at: https://thedylanreview.org/

The issue also features Dave Junker’s review of my own book ‘Read Books, Repeat Quotations: The Literary Bob Dylan’, for which see a separate entry on this blog!
