i was thrilled when I first found this book on the shelf. It's filled with 73 black-and-white photos of Bob Dylan in the early years. From the looks of things, the pictures lead from the first album to the Blonde on Blonde years and include some rare pictures I'd never seen before. They are all described in the end of the book, in its last few pages. This disappointed me a little bit...I wish that the captions from the authors had been displayed on the pages with the full-page photos! An incredibly dedicated Dylan fan may get bored of looking at the same pictures over and over--after a while 73 doesn't seem like so many photos anymore! But, the photos are great, and the book is worth its price!

Bob Dylan is one of musics all time greatest artist. Bob Dylan is my all time favorite. I love this book. This allowed me to see photos of Bob that i have never seen before in my life. I love all his songs. You got to listen to the words and meanings, not just the music. They are both great, but his songs express himself, and said what the people felt back then. This book is a must for everyone. If your a Dylan freak, dont waste any time. Go out and get this awesome book!

Very simple, if you are a true Dylan fan, you'll love this book. Early Dylan is Dylan at his best...the photographs show the realness of the greatest poet, and rebel of our time. He truly is an American icon and this book captures his essence in the early sixties.

Well, this book is like a breath of fresh air. It's awesome and a must buy for all dylan freaks. The photographs in this book documents the most creative phase of one of the most brilliant personalities to have ever been born. This book is significant especially in this age when all you have around you in the music scene is bands like TLC, Boyzone etc. Atleast there is still some hope left with His highness Bob still going strong. I was exposed to this great artist when I was barely 18 yrs old and till date I havent begun a single day without first listening to any one of his songs. That's the kind of influence Mr. Bob Dylan has on most of his fans. So go ahead folks lay down your weary tunes and buy this book. I'm glad to see him still alive looking like a saint!!!.

I have looked upon photos of this man, Mr. Bob Dylan, many times in my life. I have admired the work of these three photographers even more times than I can count. The images as well as the accompanying accounts in this book are stirring, candid and compelling. I am a budding music photographer in NYC. I have never had the pleasure or shooting Mr. Dylan but I know that in the 1960's, a photographer could gain access to such marvelous artists, go back stage, shoot pictures for more than 3 songs of a set and would be gracious for this opportunity. Seeing these images remind how things have changed and how fortunate I am to bear distent witness to some great, some maybe not-so-great moments in the life of not only one master but four.

I used to think that I could figure out the meaning of life if I looked hard enough at pictures of Bob Dylan. My philosophy has thankfully mellowed, but this book is a great complement to any Dylan fan's record collection. Even if you're not a fan of his music, you gotta admit he was one stylish cat in the sixties.

This is one of my favourite visual texts dealing with Dylan. The candid, timeless images displayed within speaks for itself. This is without doubt, the greatest representation of Dylan as a young man. Like Dylans' music, this book has a sense of honesty. He doesn't pose. What you see is what you get. The only flaw i can see in this book is the fact that i'm not there. I would give anything to have recorded with dylan. Then and Now. I'm a 16 year old kid from Australia, so that won't be happening any time soon. I close by suggesting that you get this book, and all his books, and every record he has ever cut.

Finally, a book of photographs that do the man some justice as the greatest performer of this last 100 years.
