In the Autumn of 1975 when America was 'festering with Bicentennial madness', Bob Dylan and his Rolling Thunder Revue - a rag-tag variety show, something akin to a travelling gypsy circus - toured 22 cities across the Northeast US. In amongst the motley crew of musicians and performers was playwright Sam Shepard who was hired to write a Fellini-esque movie that would come out of the tour. Throughout the many moods and moments of his travels with Dylan and his troupe, Shepard also kept an impressionistic 'logbook' of life on the road that would quickly become a classic for Dylan Fans.
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of that legendary tour, this updated edition has been completely redesigned, and illuminated by forty candid photographs by official tour photographer Ken Regan, many never before published. The Rolling Thunder Logbook captures the camaraderie, isolation, head games and pill-popping mayhem of the tour, providing a window into Dylan's singular talent, enigmatic charisma, and vision of America.
