Read full description of the books:
The first seven chapters of this edition are the original edition (first published 1972). I read the 1981 edition with photos, which I enjoyed back in 1981. There are thirteen additional chapters in Song and Dance Man III, four times the size of the original.
I'm putting aside this expanded edition to resume sometime later. I have a few books I want to concentrate on at the moment. It's not the right time or headspace at present for me.
Michael Gray is obviously knowledgeable. I think this book must have been written aimed at a younger generation just discovering Bob Dylan. Song and Dance Man III starts out with the early career, as much focused on 'The Great Society' that demeaned and dismissed Bob Dylan, as well as the fans who felt betrayed when he went electric with a band, as it is on Bob Dylan and his work. The writing is a tad too reverential. I wasn't that impressed with M. Gray's brief synopsis album-by-album guide list or his choice of best songs from each album.
Song and Dance Man III (hate that title), is a humongous work, which deserves one's undivided attention, although it is a great reference work to pick up and look at a certain period of Dylan's long career.

Read information about the authorMichael Gray is a critic, writer, public speaker & broadcaster recognised as a world authority on the work of Bob Dylan, and as an expert on rock’n’roll history. He also has a special interest in pre-war blues, and in travel.
He grew up near Liverpool, England, went to the Cavern, and graduated from the University of York with a BA in History & English in 1967, having interviewed (as a student journalist) the distinguished British historian A.J.P. Taylor and the distinguished American guitarist Jimi Hendrix.
His pioneering study Song & Dance Man: The Art of Bob Dylan, published in the UK in 1972, was the first full-length critical study of Dylan’s work. US and Japanese hardback editions, and a UK paperback, were published in 1973. A second, updated edition was published in 1981 in the UK and 1982 in North America.
The massive third edition Song & Dance Man III - including a 112-page study of Dylan’s use of the blues - was published in December 1999 in the UK and early in 2000 in the US. A seventh reprint was issued in 2008, and the book remained in print until late 2010.
