Listening to Bob Dylan, Paperback / softback Book

Listening to Bob Dylan Paperback / softback

Part of the Music in American Life series

Paperback / softback

Description

Venerated for his lyrics, Bob Dylan in fact is a songwriting musician with a unique mastery of merging his words with music and performance.

Larry Starr cuts through pretention and myth to provide a refreshingly holistic appreciation of Dylan's music.

Ranging from celebrated classics to less familiar compositions, Starr invites readers to reinvigorate their listening experiences by sharing his own-sometimes approaching a song from a fresh perspective, sometimes reeling in surprise at discoveries found in well-known favorites.

Starr breaks down often-overlooked aspects of the works, from Dylan's many vocal styles to his evocative harmonica playing to his choices as a composer.

The result is a guide that allows listeners to follow their own passionate love of music into hearing these songs-and personal favorites-in new ways.

Reader-friendly and revealing, Listening to Bob Dylan encourages hardcore fans and Dylan-curious seekers alike to rediscover the music legend.
