“I’d come from a long ways off
and had started a long ways down. But now destiny was about to manifest itself.
I felt like it was looking right at me and nobody else.”
Bob Dylan’s Chronicle:
Volume One explores the critical junctions in his life and career.
Through Dylan’s eyes and open mind we see Greenwich Village, circa 1961, when
he first arrives in Manhattan. Dylan’s New York is a magical city of possibilities—smoky,
nightlong parties; literary awakenings; transient loves and unbreakable
friendships. Elegiac observations are punctuated by jabs of memories,
penetrating and tough. With side trips to New Orleans, Woodstock, Minnesota, and
points west, Chronicles: Volume One is an intimate and
intensely personal recollection of extraordinary times.
Revealing, poetical, passionate, and witty, Chronicles: Volume One is a mesmerizing window on Bob
Dylan’s thoughts and influences. Dylan’s voice is distinctively American:
generous of spirit, engaged, fanciful, and rhythmic. Utilizing his unparalleled
gifts of storytelling and the exquisite expressiveness that are the hallmarks
of his music, Bob Dylan turns Chronicles: Volume One into
a poignant reflection on life, and the people and places that helped shape the
man and the art.
