Présentation de l'éditeur

"In the Autumn of 1975 when America was 'festering with Bicentennial madness', Bob Dylan and his Rolling Thunder Revue - a rag-tag variety show, something akin to a travelling gypsy circus - toured 22 cities across the Northeast US. In amongst the motley crew of musicians and performers was playwright Sam Shepard who was hired to write a Fellini-esque movie that would come out of the tour. Throughout the many moods and moments of his travels with Dylan and his troupe, Shepard also kept an impressionistic 'logbook' of life on the road that would quickly become a classic for Dylan Fans.

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of that legendary tour, this updated edition has been completely redesigned, and illuminated by forty candid photographs by official tour photographer Ken Regan, many never before published. The Rolling Thunder Logbook captures the camaraderie, isolation, head games and pill-popping mayhem of the tour, providing a window into Dylan's singular talent, enigmatic charisma, and vision of America."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 True East 2 avril 2007
Par Gord Wilson - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I gave this four stars because I don't think Sam would want it to get five. That would make it too perfect, and once you read Jack Kerouac's On the Road, you're always wary of making things too perfect. That also seemed to be the idea of the Rolling Thunder Revue: to let things fall together even though that means they may fall apart (and by Sam's reckoning they eventually did).

Coupled with J. D. Salinger stream of consciousness writing, Sam dragged Kerouac's real time typing into the deconstructed stage with all four walls down. I only know Sam from his portrayl of Chuck Yeager in the Right Stuff from the book by Tom Wolfe-- the book full of Wolfian gimmicks but the film made the old fashioned way, his plays like True West, and the fact that his mom once toasted my fledgeling writing career-- I hope one day to make her proud.

Sam was hired to make a film of the Revue tour, and wound up making a book. While that means it has pages, photos, and a cover, within that loose definition, it falls apart as much as it can. Sam uses the "f" word, but as a word, not for effect (it is a word). There are bits of writing like this: "Fans are more dangerous than a man with a weapon because they're after something invisible."

The thing that galvanized the tour was fighting to get Rubin Carter released (which eventually happened), and Dylan penned the amazing "Hurricane", an absolutely riveting song when you hear it on the Bootleg Vols 1-3 CD set (or various other ways it exists), not only for the lyrics and music, but Dylan's delivery, at once cool and impassioned, the crazy quilt of images, skewed syntax, sprung rhythms, and well, Sam Shepardness of the whole thing.

But was it all a museum set piece? More safely enshrined rock history? Or can it happen now? Will someone rise up today for Eric Volz? Let the thunder roll on.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Shepard Pitch-Perfect with Sense of Time and Place 5 octobre 2010

I consider myself a pretty big Dylan fan. So much of the music is always playing on continual loops, rattling around inside me. And though I'm a big fan of the music, I've never been big on the books. I just don't need to know times and dates and historical record. My die-hard geek devotion to Dylan has never been statistical. It's always about song, the man's own words, and great anecdotes. But, when I stumbled on a book about my favorite Dylan period written by Shepard, I bought it right away.

And, it's dead-on. Shepard is right there. At all times. What's most impressive is how Shepard never compromises his own prose style ( it's all Shepard in tone and word choice ) and yet is somehow able to fade to the background and just lets the perfect moments rise to the top. Two particular moments blew me away. Shepard does a fantastic job of pulling you into Ginsberg reading a poem about motherhood to hotel guests, most of which are Jewish moms of another generation. I can feel them twitch and pause as Ginsberg pours his soul out over them. Shepard gives you a whole extra layer, making the great connection between Ginsberg, religion, and audience, tapping into more than most would have the skill or eye to do. The Shepard eye also does a phenomenal job of letting you just sort of sit with the Dylan mystique. I particularly like how Shepard discusses Dylan's great use of silence in conversations. It's a great, fast-paced read that harnesses the manic feel of a time and an idea. It's awesome.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another perspective on RTR 27 décembre 2010

For fans interested in the Rolling Thunder Revue, this logbook adds another perspective on what this tour was like. I would also recommend Larry "Ratso" Sloman's On the Road with Bob Dylan, Anne Waldman's beat poem "Shaman Hisses You Slide Back into the Night" in Kill or Cure, and the film Renaldo and Clara, as well as DVDs and CDs of the tour.

I was annoyed by Shepard's apparent lack of attention to detail with respect to Dylan song titles (e.g., "How Does It Feel?," "Everybody Must Get Stoned," "Hattie Carroll," "It Ain't Me," "My Masterpiece"...). It made me wonder about the accuracy of other information.

I did enjoy the journal-like quality and variety of writing styles (e.g., essays, lists, scripts, news clips) and diversity of focus for individual pieces (e.g., events, places, people). The variety sustained my interest and sometimes encouraged me to want to learn more.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Notes From the Grestest Tour EVER 18 mars 2014

a collection of random anecdotes and stories you tell over drinks for the greatest tour ever. priceless tales and meandering malarky. the tour between Blood On The Tracks and Desire shows Dylan surrounded by an ever-changing collection of lights out musicians, hangers-on and soothsayers at the end of an era that started long before he unplugged and nearly caused a riot over a decade previous.

One-of-a kind "Logbook" recounting a one-of-a-kind (just like B. Dylan) event. Awesome photographs. A "must" for anyone who is into Dylan. Thanks Sam Shepard.
