  1. Only Sam shepard could have written this logbook covering his experience traveling with the film crew of The Rolling Thunder Revue I had no idea this book was even out there and as good as it was For any Bob Dylan fans, artists, creative persons, and just about anybody looking for a very good time Precious cargo here And not to be missed The photographs also add so much to this fine text.


  2. I ve been reading Ratso Sloman s Rolling Thunder Revue book, and found that SAM SHEPARD HAD ALSO written about the experience, in much shorter form, so had to read both concurrently to compare notes journalistic and gossipy.Sloman complains of his setbacks and road life problems, but overall has the enthusiasm of a Dylan fan and wiseass nature to seem optimistic Shepard puts less emphasis on being blown away by the music and on how miserable he was, and how an unplanned rock tour through remote [...]


  3. Back in the mid 1970s, playwright Sam Shephard took an unsuccessful turn at the New Journalism as a way of salvaging some professional benefit from an aimless rock and roll adventure Bob Dylan was embarking on his famed Rolling Thunder Revue tour with a rotating cast of characters and some constants Along for all or part of the ride were his wife, his former lover Joan Baez, Allen Ginsburg, Roger McGuinn, Joni Mitchell, Muhammad Ali the tour also was related to efforts to free Hurricane Carter, [...]



  4. A good rollicking read trip down memory lane I am a die hard Dylan fan, and love his music, lyrics, writings and ramblings, so this was in a sense an essential read The photographs and anecdotes from tour members was great If you not an ageing gray haired Dylan fan you might not appreciate it as much


  5. No, wait THIS is the best rock book ever A unique view of His Bobness with a real scrawled on backs of hotel stationery feel Captures dingy bellbottom early 70s vibe just as one imagines it.



  6. metti uno dei migliori autori teatrali della sua generazione al seguito di una delle pi incredibili tourn e di sempre, e non potr che uscirne un capolavoro dylan ai tempi della rolling thunder revue era all apice del suo essere una rockstar, e la sua reazione fu appunto fare un tour circense, stracolmo di ospiti musicali la baez, la mitchell, mick ronson della band di bowie, roger mcguire dei byrds, ecc e non allen ginzberg , e pure di amici e gente a caso, e per di pi facendolo girare solo in p [...]


  7. A journal detailing the first leg of Dylan sRolling Thunder Revuetour medicine show carnival Sheppard was brought in to make a film out of the tour, but everyone on the film crew quickly realized it would be impossible to create a watchable film out of the footage they were shooting, and there wasn t any way to remedy that The result is the still mostly unreleased 4 hour filmRonaldo Clara Fans of either Sheppard s or Dylan s work will find little insight into either here, but it s a very enjoyab [...]


  8. Essentially notes and jottings some extended made by Sam Shepard about the Rolling Thunder tour of New England culminating in a big night for Ruben Carter in New York Enough to tell you that it was a significant event that there were some inspirational people along on that ride and that there were some hangers on they could probably have managed without.You get the highs and lows The times of euphoria, the times of discovery, the times of companionship and camaraderie And the stultifying boredom [...]


  9. This was a fun, short read which I took my time with, just to enjoy it after finishing the much longer account of the Bob Dylan Rolling Thunder Revue tour in 1975 as told by Larry Ratso Sloman Sloman s book is very detailed and filled with accounts of the entire tour, his mistreatment by the entourage and by Rolling Stone magazine Shepard s Book is much poetic with freeform thoughts as they hit, as well as some interesting photographs Reading these 2 books together like this has completely reju [...]


  10. Read This a long time ago and re read severally episodically , When I was stage manager for the college show of Sam Shepard s Seduced I used to sit in the bio box and read it in a rambling vox over the PA whilst the crew and actors worked through warm ups or gliches in scenes or just waited on a tantrum to dissipate or whilst folk were painting the set black, hanging lamps etc it helped us all , Thanks Mr Shepard


  11. I am left to wonder if Shepard listened to Dylan s advice and read Conrad As Conrad wrote We live as we dream alone Unfortunately for Shepard that sums up his frustrated experience from the edge of the Rolling Thunder Review.


  12. Well written impressionistic account of Bob Dylan s Rolling Thunder tour of 1975 6 Probably only of interest to Dylan fanatics or to those particularly interested in the tour.


  13. The past is this moment escaping IF A MYSTERY IS SOLVED, the case is dropped In this case, in the case of Dylan, the mystery is never solved, so the case keeps on It keeps coming up again Over and over the years Who is this character anyway Even now, when communications are almost down to teleportation of brain signals, there s still an emotional space in us that needs filling And it s still the same as it was then It doesn t matter if the information on our heroes is completely made up, we stil [...]


  14. Reading what so ever written by Shepard means going through a shortened social history of America after ww II, and up till the end of 20.century Plots are so simple and dialogues are not very much sophisticated Maybe some of works by Shepard are not as interesting as the others, but for those whom are interested in sociology, and drama as writing art, will enjoy reading or watching works by Shepard Reading simple and plain plays by Shepard gives you dare to sit and write about whatsoever plot yo [...]


  15. This book reminds of getting our of college in 1975 andthere were NO jobs President Ford told NY City to go to helland NO bailout back then Since I lived in North Jersey life sucked This bookcovers the Dylan tour but also a NJ tidbit Free HurricaneCarter I had a FREE Hurricane Carter button when Igraduated from William Paterson College in MAy 1975.All my friends, political science laughed But Cartergot out years later Pardoned by Gov.Byrne Sam Shepard captures the time period Oh, I see the verso [...]


  16. Sam Shepard s journal of The rolling thunder tour You might need to be a Dylan fan or Shepard fan to get much out of this I happen to be both so I thought it was great Shepard really seem to get just what the tour was about an anarchic, bacchanalian, piece of travelling performance art of mythic proportions.


  17. Any dedicated Bobster will enjoy this On the road through New England, anonymous, masked and dangerous Full supporting cast of gypsies If only the pics were in colour.


  18. This book is like someone ripping your heart out of your chest and leading you around with it while it beats in their hand, and you re not only compelled to follow, but you re grateful for having it happen to you.



  19. Only for the Dylan freaks But the addition of Regan s photos, and Shepard s last couple of chapters on the Rubin Carter fund raiser at MSG make the rest of the book worth reading.
