"Verlag: Simon & Schuster (6. November 2014)"

Oooh. Is this going to be one of those six ( :!: ) books Bob promised to write for them? Annotated by Himself :D

I'd love this to be true!

Is 2014 going to be the year of Bob Dylan? Bootleg Series release, several commercials, magazine covers, books........new album maybe? Another art show? Of course, touring.

Just so the evil wussies won't ask him about plagiarism anymore! :lol:

I'd love to see his own notes, but it's kind of hard to imagine that. I hope it won't just be annotations regarding places, names etc mentioned in the lyrics.

Also, I check amazon US and UK, and it's not mentioned there yet. The link is from the German branch.

This would indeed be really good. I hope it's true.

And I want Chronicles II. And a new Bootleg Series. And an official DVD of a NET concert. And a new album.

Yes :) All years are Bob years, but some years are more Bob than others!

It's probably wishful thinking to expect him to do annotations himself, but I can't help but imagine what that would look like. I suspect the outcome would be rather Proustian... in many senses of the word.


ETA: Okay, the German Amazon must employ a clairvoyant.. There's also a listing for something called "Untitled Christmas Book von Bob Dylan von Simon & Schuster (1. Dezember 2030)" :P

Scott Warmuth is the only qualified researcher to write this

Post subject:  Re: Complete Annotated Lyrics?

Not if this is official product, which it appears to be. It will come from people close to the source, if not Bob himself. Though I'd be a little surprised if he gave us full access to his book shelves and record collection.

Post subject:  Re: Complete Annotated Lyrics?

then again, maybe Bob just is stealing back Scott's work while paying him to write it.

"Written by Anonymous" would be great, written by Bob - hahaha.

i mean we got "Anonymous" writing the commercial, right?

Bob should post here Anonymously, it's the new necessary level.

I was wondering how long Bob could have this huge book deal without producing any actual books... :lol:

In any event, I'm glad I didn't buy "Lyrics" 6 Months ago now.

This book is a speculative listing, and it will probably come to naught, but I wish they would annotate the lyrics on the bobdylan.com site.

Still can't believe it's about to be 10 Years Since Chronicles Vol. 1 :shock:

I guess he just hasn't changed much! :lol:
Only it's supposed to be six books now, and the TTRH and Christmas ones that used to be listed on amazon never materialized.

Yes, it's hard to believe it's been that long since Chronicles came out. I remember seeing it in the book store window along with Lyrics 1962-2001, which came out at the same time. Clue? :?:

Amazon UK Listing has been Updated with a Date, November 6th, and description(including who is doing the annotations):

Quote:
This definitive collection brings together the entire catalogue of lyrics by one of the most legendary songwriters in history, Bob Dylan. From the early protest songs, like "Blowing in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a Changing" to his revolutionary "Subterranean Homesick Blues" and "Like a Rolling Stone", Dylan's music has spoken for and to generations, and influenced such artists as John Lennon, Lou Reed, and Mark Knopfler. This is the ultimate collection for any Dylan fan, and contains not only the entire Dylan canon, from the early classics to all of his most recent songs, but also in-depth commentary and annotations from literary critic and acclaimed Dylan expert Christopher Ricks.

They include a number of pages and an ISBN. Unfortunately, searching for that ISBN yields only an error message. I expect the listing is a joke, but if so, why specify all this bibliographic data?
