The Philosophy of Modern Song / BOB DYLAN
Over 10 years in the making, this is Dylan’s master class on songwriting. About 60 songs are discussed in short, witty essays: from The Who’s “My Generation” to Harold Melvin’s “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”. Dylan touches on syntax, genre, and often, how songs relate to the human condition. A collector’s item with hundreds of archival photos to flip through.
