Had anyone suggested during the 1980s that Bob Dylan would re-invent himself yet again during the decades that followed, and once more become the music-world’s most respected artist, while picking up multiple awards and achieving number one albums along the way, they may well have been met with a wry smile, if not outright derision. But somehow Dylan pulled it off and after a lengthy period of lacklustre music and performances he again became the most important icon of the rock age.
This documentary film follows the career and music of Bob Dylan from the aftermath of his stunning 1989 ‘comeback album’ Oh Mercy and follows his story up to 2006’s masterpiece, Modern Times.
Featuring a wealth of archive material, performance footage, exclusive and classic interviews, contributions from many close confidantes plus writers and Dylan experts Johnny Rogan, Derek Barker, Clinton Heylin and Nigel Williamson, along with location film, news reports and some of the finest music recorded during the last 20 years.
Extras include; extended interviews, full Contributor Biographies, Beyond DVD section and more.
