Like a Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan at the Crossroads by Greil MarcusGreil Marcus saw Bob Dylan for the first time in a New Jersey field in 1963. He didnt know the name of the scruffy singer who had a bit part in a Joan Baez concert, but he knew his performance was unique. So began a dedicated and enduring relationship between Americas finest critic of popular music— simply peerless, in Nick Hornbys words, not only as a rock writer but as a cultural historian— and Bob Dylan, who in 2016 won the Nobel Prize for Literature. In Like A Rolling Stone Marcus locates Dylans six-minute masterwork in its richest, fullest context, capturing the heady atmosphere of the recording studio in 1965 as musicians and technicians clustered around the mercurial genius from Minnesota, the young Bob Dylan at the height of his powers. But Marcus shows how, far from being a song only of 1965, Like a Rolling Stone is rooted in faraway American places and times, drawing on timeless cultural impulses that make the song as challenging, disruptive, and restless today as it ever was, capable of reinvention by artists as disparate as the comedian Richard Belzer and the Italian hip-hop duo Articolo 31. Like a Rolling Stone never loses its essential quality, which is directly to challenge the listener: it remains a call to arms and a demand for a better world. Forty years later it is still revolutionary as will and idea, as an attack and an embrace. How Does it Feel? In this unique, burningly intense book, Marcus tells you, and much more besides.

But this May, onstage at the Ardmore Music Hall, playing as part of a local bash for his bard's birthday, that's the foreign territory he crossed into. Brown, a thin, reserved man of 67 with wild white hair, is a gifted writer and songwriter, a mainstay of Philly's music scene since the s. Get the news you need to start your day. Peter Stone Brown went home to his rented room in a big old Victorian in West Mount Airy, into the embrace of his record collection and his books, the ephemera of a life spent two steps removed from the big time. He grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, and then in Millburn, N. He was a champion of local talent, his record collection a guidepost for young artists.
Although the Shot of Love album was less religious than the previous two albums Dylan recorded, it most certainly included a number of very solidly Christian songs — including rather obviously obviously Property of Jesus. It is a song that appears to have been worked and re-worked, but then having been recorded was not used on the tours, so maybe Dylan never really felt it was finished. Or maybe he had worked it out of his system. It seems to me as a non-Christian to be part of the conservative nature of Christianity, allowing social situations no matter how awful and to me slavery is certainly at the most awful end of the spectrum to remain because what primarily matters is life hereafter, not life now. Nor is it Masters of War. And therein lies the problem for me. The Corinthians phrase is for me a perfect example of a heart of stone — just stay in your poverty or desperation, and let the rich stay in their luxury, because God has put each of us in this position and He knows what he is doing, really grates with me.
A working draft of the finished song in Dylan's own hand went to an unidentified bidder at Sotheby's. The manuscript is "the only known surviving draft of the final lyrics for this transformative rock anthem", Sotheby's said. The draft is written in pencil on four sheets of hotel letterhead stationery with revisions, additions, notes and doodles: a hat, a bird, an animal with antlers. Dylan was 24 when he recorded the song in about a debutante who becomes a loner when she's cast from upper-class social circles. The name "Al Capone" is scrawled in the margin, with a line leading to the lyrics "Like a complete unknown. Sotheby's described the seller as a longtime fan from California "who met his hero in a non-rock context and bought directly from Dylan". He was not identified.
