    One thought on “Dylan Redeemed: From Highway 61 to Saved”

    1. It was OK. Parts of it I loved and then there were laugh out loud parts. Webb really seems to go out of his way to have Dylan and his music coexist with his own beliefs.That being said some of what he wrote I agree with. I do think that Dylan doesn't want to be viewed as being for the left or the right, what artist would? Dylan creates and then it is up to you the listener to find what it all means. I also did not like how Webb comes across as condescending. There are large parts of the book whe [...]

    2. This book has some provocative things to say about sound and silence, but this material comes in the last third of the book. By the time I got to this discussion of sound, music, and silence, I was thoroughly irritated by the thesis that Dylan was not on the liberal left from the beginning of his career. Webb's reading of lyrics to songs such as "Only a Pawn in Their Game" and late in the book, "Cold Irons Bound," strike me as forced and quite simply wrong. Webb has an agenda, and from my perspe [...]

    3. A provocative book on the iconic Mr. Dylan. His thesis, which he does a good job of proving, is that Dylan is best understood apart from the "sixties" political assumptions that have been heaped upon him. In interview after interview, Dylan rejected political interpretations of his music. Anyone who has read Dylan's own "Chronicles" or listened to his three-year radio program "Theme Time Radio Hour" will readily understand this. Dylan embraced and celebrated the whole sweep of American music; he [...]

    4. This book meant a lot to me - totally changed how I think of Dylan and his work. I now see him as a counter-cultural force as a rockster and as a Christian. That's kinda how I see myself too in my own way, so I feel closer to him now.I bought the book before reading Webb's Mormon Christianity, which I also loved - then saw that wrote the Dylan book too. What a wandering, amazing thinker this Webb must be! I totally got the importance for Dylan in his life - that's how I am too. I even dream of D [...]

    5. Webb does a fantastic job with his close-reading of Dylan's lyrics. This work recontextualizes some of his major performances and sets up a career narrative that strikes me as unique.The downside is that Webb approaches rock as a genre as if this were 1957. Not only does he have the idea that rock will make kids turn to hedonistic wildness, but he doesn't get any sense of varying rock aesthetics, at one point even claiming that rock is so dischordant that you can tell what instruments make what [...]
