Dylan destinations

I heard about this pretty late, but I’m seriously considering a trip to Brooklyn tomorrow night to see Clinton Heylin, who will be signing copies of his new book Revolution in the Air: The Songs of Bob Dylan, 1957-1973 at Spoonbill & Sugartown, an indie bookstore in Williamsburg. Heylin’s Behind the Shades is the best and most comprehensive biography of His Bobness now on the shelves, and Bob Dylan: The Recording Sessions is the kind of thorough spadework future scholars will appreciate as they study one of the landmark American musicians.

Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to seeing Michael Gray give his talk “Bob Dylan & The Poetry of the Blues” this Friday in Nyack, N.Y.  Quite a music-oriented week coming up.

    If you go to the Clinton Heylin reading, I’d love to know how it goes!
