This is the second volume in Clinton Heylin´s magisterial survey of the songs of Bob Dylan. The first volume - Revolution in the Air which is now available in paperback - charted the rise of Bob Dylan from his first jottings to the full expression of genius in songs such as ´Hard Rain Gonna Fall´ and ´The Times They Are a Changin´´.
Still on the Road begins in 1974 with "Blood on the Tracks", the album filled with masterworks such as ´Tangled Up in Blue´ and ´Simple Twist of Fate´ that heralded a watershed in Dylan´s creative journey, and continues to chart his never-ending fascination with music and the art of song up to 2006´s "Modern Times".
