One thought on “Chronicles: Volume One

  1. I used to love Bob Dylan until he said, and I quote, If you have slave running through your blood or are a descent of the Ku Klux Klan, black people can sense that It remains to this day Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and the Serbs can sense Croatian blood I don t take kindly to being compared to a Nazi Next time, you better think twice before you insult an entire nation Croatian people are not barbarians The history of Yugoslavia is complex enough without having to deal with pretentious ce [...]

  2. I m going to do something I try not to do here, since I consider this to be a site about other people s words I m going to ramble on autobiographically for a bit.I bought this first volume of Dylan s Chronicles the day it came out in 2004, was anticipating the hell out of it Back then I was managing a used record store in College Park, Maryland I studied poetry and creative writing at UMD, big waste of my time, could ve learned all that on my own, learn now on my own than I did then anyway, exc [...]

  3. Conscience impels me to remove one star from my original 5 I m bewitched, bothered and bewildered.When this gorgeously written, completely eccentric and endearing memoir came out in 2004 I loved it, and my original review is included below In the years since then, Dylan fans and commentators have been finding out stuff, and it opens a big can of worms, the worms ofPLAGIARISMBecause, it seems, if the rabid batgooglers and archive monkeys are to be believed, large parts maybe all of Chronicles are [...]

  4. After being on my to read shelf for a while, this book jumped up a couple spots when Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize for literature He didn t win the prize because of this autobiography or for his novel, but rather for the lyrics he wrote down and then placed over music This autobiography is well written and honest, but it is disjointed at times and didn t tell me much about the things I thought I wanted to know about I wanted to know what Dylan was thinking when he wrote songs like Blowin in the [...]

  5. Positively Fraud Street I see you on the streetI always act surprisedI say, How does it feel But I don t mean it I can t taste your words, You said, Your songs are just lies So I cried that you were deaf,You d lost the sight in your eyes.And I said that you were wrongWhen you accused me of theftBut all I really wanted to know wasWhat else have you got left No, I never wasted any time,And I never took much.I never asked for your crutch,Now don t ask me for mine.Well you got up to leaveAnd you sai [...]

  6. UPDATE A good and memorable read but probably not why he won the Nobel.What a wonderful weird book about the influence of cities and sounds, knowing what you want and going for it and getting it thanks to talent, luck, attitude, and meeting the right people Funny how it emphasizes what no one really wants to know New Morning and Oh Mercy era stuff instead of everything from Hard Rain s Gonna Fall to Visions of Johanna to Shelter From the Storm to Isis Those songs are hardly mentioned at all mayb [...]

  7. I am not by any means a big fan of autobiographies or biographies written with the popular market in mind Autobiographies can all too often be divided into the self aggrandising, self serving, self promotion type, or alternatively the celebrity ghost written cut and paste, vacuous and pointless nonsense type or the pseudo warts and all expos type or sometimes a combination of all three Biographies on the other hand, often than not are written with the agenda either of the fan or the character a [...]

  8. I awake this morning to the news that Bob Dylan has won the Nobel Prize for Literature for 2016, which I absolutely am happy about A bold move for the committee It made me think that the committee is probably quite old to do this, but also well aware of his lyrics, which I assume is the reason he wins I also read Paul Bryant s reviews of this book, the first of which, like mine originally, was very positive I loved the book and await Then I saw Paul has read a lot of research identifying plagia [...]

  9. Each phrase comes at you from a ten foot drop, scuttles across the road and then another one comes like a punch on the chin.So goes Dylan on the marvel of Pirate Jenny, the haunting number by Brecht Weill in their Three Penny Opera Apparently seeing this performed life indelibly changed Dylan s approach to songwriting I bought myself G.W Pabst s film version of TPO for this recent Christmas and I was absolutely riveted by Lotte Lenya s performance of the song, she s so cold , so decisive, much l [...]

  10. Mark my words, this book is going to be considered as an American classic piece of literature Students in the year 2035 will study it, and young men wearing plastic rain coats will be holding this book as a fashionable prop in the most elegant nightclubs As for me, this was such a surprise remarkable read I didn t expect it to be so great What makes it so great is Dylan personal observations on the world around him The way he goes through his frirends library was one of my favorite parts of the [...]

  11. I really want to talk with Dylan And it happened That s what it feels like when you get under the bed covers with this book, no sound but a cricket buzz outside the window His words come out at you like his music Unpretentious, romantic Funny like a Woody Allen movie It feels like any minute that gravel voice will start whispering out of the pages to you A genius talking about his inspiration What could you want So, what inspired him Better yet, what didn t Everything s flowed into his art the [...]

  12. mi pare r u, nu.Am nceput cartea cu mult bun voin a i f r prejudec i, ns nu a reu it s m conving.Nu tiu dac stilul st ngaci i mult prea neexersat trebuie pus pe seama autorului sau este o consecin a unei traduceri mai pu in fericite, ns mi s a p rut obositor i, pe alocuri, enervant Niciodat nu am agreat abuzul de n iruiri de nume proprii ntr o singur fraz , iar Dylan exagereaz cu enumer rile nume de persoane, de str zi, de cluburi, de studiouri Pentru un profan, disconfortul este major mi pare r [...]

  13. If you are looking for a straight up biography, this isn t for you Dylan s style of writing is very disjointed and can take some getting used to, but overall the book is very well written There is a segment on how he came to put together his album Oh Mercy which was very interesting but not one of his albums I was well versed in Unfortunately he doesn t really discuss his other albums He does talk a great deal about all of his influences the name dropping this man can do is unreal and for me the [...]

  14. Know this, readers Bob Dylan has ALWAYS and will forever continue probably even at his death to do things HIS OWN WAY I read some of the reviews for this book First off, ignore all those who are not even fans of Bob Dylan or are the ones that wish he would sing Like a Rolling Stone or Tangled up in Blue Get over it What I saw in this book was his inspiration You will NEVER get this in any biography about any artist Or at least rarely Biographies and even autobiographies are a way for the experts [...]

  15. I m really not a big Dylan fan per se, but that he is an amazing poet cannot be denied Once upon a time I played a mediocre rendition of like a rolling stone, mostly because I fell in love with this lyric You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomatWho carried on his shoulder a Siamese catAin t it hard when you discover thatHe really wasn t where it s atAfter he took from you everything he could steal.No idea where he comes up with this shit, but it s brilliant Actually, in chronicles [...]

  16. WANT BADLY Mother s Day is coming up or for Birthday then, Xmas in July, Aussie Friend Day, Happy Person who does your laundry day, Day for people who will beg for books Well any excuse will do have loved Bob a long time.will even be embarrassing pimp my photo here of a time when I played his records over and over

  17. Bob Dylan has given us a meandering, often boring and only occasionally interesting account of some of the formative moments of his career Two thirds of the book is taken up by the story of how he came to record New Morning and Oh Mercy Yowzah He gives only glancing, arrogant mention to the days of his most prolific and brilliant songwriting which is fine, it doesn t shatter my perception of Dylan to find him arrogant and evasive, but I do take umbrage with the boring minutia of the recording st [...]

  18. Dylan se ha pasado la vida jugando al despiste Este libro es otro cap tulo m s en este sentido Dedica los dos primeros cap tulos a contar sus primeros pasos en Nueva York con veinte a os, el cap tulo sigue trata sobre su encuentro con el poeta norteamericano Archibald MacLeish y a la gestaci n de New Morning un lbum menor donde los haya dentro de su discograf a El cuarto cap tulo lo dedica a narrar con pelos y se ales la gestaci n de Oh, Mercy a finales de los ochenta y termina volviendo a sus p [...]

  19. When I was maybe six or seven, and already beginning my lifelong devotion to music, and rock in particular, I remember standing in the Record Department at Arlan s looking at the 45s, since my mother said I could get 5, if my brother and I could agree We already knew some we liked Herman s Hermits, the Monkees, The Dave Clark Five, Tommy James and the Shondells, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs What about this one My brother said, pointing to a sleeve with a guy with crazy curly hair Bobby Die lon, [...]

  20. Wow A dense, extraordinary approach to an auto biography Dylan was never going to write a conventional biography, and readers who want one should keep on walking This isn t for them.Instead Dylan has constructed a mythology as autobiography While I think it s fair to assume that everything in this book is true, I think we should probably accept that it s not necessarily literal He s obviously missed large chunks out for a start the book really only covers a couple of periods in his life And a nu [...]

  21. Knjiga je dosta dosadna Ima lepih i zanimljivih misli, ali previ e je nabrajanja gomile imena i bazi nih karakteristika likova koji su nosili ta imena, a koji su imali makar i manji dodir sa momentima koje Dylan opisuje I opisi emicija i tra enja pravog puta i izraza za pesme u New Orleans u dok snima album, su vrlo naporni Kada se izdigne iz takvih pojedinosti, ima vrlo lepih misli Struktura knjige je interesantna, opisuje nekoliko faza Dylan ovog ivota koje ne idu istorijskim redosledom, ali s [...]

  22. msarki.tumblr post 151352The year 1965 brought us to terms with Bob Dylan and his outrageous and defiantly autonomous behavior with the Columbia Records release of Highway 61 Revisited Dylan was by this time extremely tired of the press, their questions, the long tours, and was hiding out in Woodstock, New York Now everything was going to change even It wasn t enough to just have Johnny Cash Bob Dylan s Chronicles Volume One, published in 2004, was ignored initially by me I was fatigued as much [...]

  24. An explanation of two stars is required here I found out from a friend that Dylan probably lifted a number of uncredited passages from other books and used them in Chronicles The link below highlights some of examples but there are others.ralphriver 2006 0So to make a long story short I only made it 1 3 of the way through the book because I spent several sidetracked hours verifying the lifted passages myself I think there are legitimate points that musicians lift passages all the time for song w [...]

  25. In some ways a beautiful book Glowing, inspirational Unique too, in that it makes us privy to the deep love of a legend for his influences On the most glowing pages, we see Brecht, Robert Johnson, Mike Seeger, Woodie Guthrie of course through Dylan s eyes, and it s revelatory Here he is on the eight extant seconds of Johnson on film He s playing with huge, spiderlike hands and they magically move over the strings of his guitar There s a harp rack with a harmonica around his neck He looks nothing [...]

  26. I have to be careful with music I m vulnerable as a listener in a way that I m not vulnerable to other kinds of art Rousseau tells us that music is capable of communicating truth directly, or perhaps it would be better to put it that music permits one to experience truth itself Words, he says, merely present one with the representation of phenomenal reality, the likeness of truth I often think about this lesson when I ve been incautious as a listener.My relationship with music is the exact oppos [...]

  27. Chronicles Vol 1 has a few moments of insight concerning Dylan s musical influences and non linear remembrances from his past, small vignettes that are often unrevealing in regards to the overall scope of the enigmatic artist s life This is not an autobiography, and those wishing for a tell all of the life of one of the most celebrated singer songwriters in history won t find much to work with here.Dylan does ramble at length about the difficulties of fame, his stalkers, and his unwillingness to [...]

  28. This was a birthday present from my eldest son I listened to Chronicles, Volume One, which is read by Sean Penn, who does a great job narrating Such a class actor, he doesn t try to imitate Dylan s voice, but gets the vibe across of what Bob Dylan is, well, chronicling Dylan, the old chameleon, doesn t give much away about himself, but all the same, being one of the greatest writers of the Twentieth Century, albeit a songwriter and poet, he describes the people and times of Greenwich Village.I v [...]

  29. There was a missing person inside of myself and I needed to find him God, this is incredible Completely wonderful A fucking masterpiece autobiography Wondrous observation Surprising self effacement The wisdom of years A delicious and well honed sense of irony Every sentence a joy More references in one graph than in whole books A complete world brought to life Ruminations and the joy of learning and discovery Dylan s own and his conveyance of it to us Dylan s highlights aren t the highlights of [...]

  30. With the breathing room that time brings I can see why Dylan came off as the arrogant smarty pants he did as caught in Eat The Document and other interviews of the time When watching these interviews the ignorance of the questions and questioners is staggering, almost magnificent They seem to be saying fuck with us and he almost reluctantly complies To his credit he chose this path rather than wearing the ego trip mantle Spokesman For A Generation that they were trying to fit him for Its for tha [...]
