Mojo: The Collectors Series: Bob Dylan - Edition 1
MOJO The Collectors’ Series: BOB DYLAN 1941-1973 REVISITED
MOJO is thrilled to present the first of two deluxe bookazines bringing together its finest writing on BOB DYLAN.
With insightful stories, eyewitness accounts and dozens of rare and iconic photographs, this sumptuous 132-page magazine follows Bob Dylan’s dramatic journey from humble beginnings as a store-owner’s son in smalltown Minnesota, through his arrival on the vibrant New York City folk scene in 1961, to his revolutionary mid-’60s years mixing the Beat poets, The Beatles and English folk airs to create some of the finest songs ever written. And that’s before he’s injured in a motorcycle accident and disappears into a Woodstock basement to lay the foundations of Americana with his backing musicians The Band… The in-depth features include the tale of Dylan’s unusual pre-fame friendship with his hero Woody Guthrie; the story of how he sensationally blew the US folk scene apart when he strapped on an electric guitar; and the inside track of his pilled-up, spaced-out tour of Britain in May 1966. Plus much more!
The follow-up, 1974-2020 REVISITED, available from March 5, brings the story up to date, covering Bob’s artistic revitalisation in the mid-’70s with the Blood On The Tracks and Desire albums, conversion to Christianity and ‘religious’ LPs, the ‘Never-ending Tour’, and a second renaissance in the 1990s and beyond.
