Summary
This is Greil Marcus's acclaimed book on the secret music made by Bob Dylan and the Band in 1967, which introduced a phrase that has become part of the culture: "the old, weird America." It is this country that the book maps--the "playground of God, Satan, tricksters, Puritans, confidence men, illuminati, braggarts, preachers, anonymous poets of all stripes" (Luc Sante, New York magazine). In honor of Dylan's seventieth birthday, this special edition includes a new introduction, an updated discography, and a cover featuring never-before-seen photographs of the legendary recording sessions [Publisher description]
Summary
A study of the Basement tapes, recordings made by Bob Dylan and the Band in Woodstock, New York, in 1967, analyzes this secret music never intended for release in terms of its place in contemporary music and in Dylan's career. Originally published as Invisible Republic. Reprint
