Ranging over 30 years of albums and outtakes, bootleg recordings, films, and live concerts, Riley delivers fresh analyses of Bob Dylan's songs, charts the mercurial shifts in the Dylan persona, assesses the singer's debt to earlier musicians, and reveals the shadow he casts on the work of Springsteen and others.
