The DYLANOLOGISTS – a kind of review (part 1)

david kinney - The Dylanologists


“The Dylanologists: Adventures in the Land of Bob” by David Kinney is a book I’ve been looking forward to reading for a while.

I’ve never written a review of a book before, but when offered a “review copy” a couple of weeks back I thought: “What the heck.. I’ll do it my way*, if I can get a kindle version (I’m a kindle-a-holic).”

So this is not a standard book review at all, rather a long article on the subject “Dylanologists” inspired by the book. I will refer to the book throughout the article, and pull together my thoughts at the end in the “Summary” section. It is indeed a great book, not only for Dylan fans. It is fun, informative & full of warmth for (most of) it’s characters. Highly recommended for anyone even remotely interested in Bob Dylan. My wife has assured me that she will read it (and she is not even close to being a Dylan fan).

My confession

Cher sings Bob Dylan Happy Birthday Cher


Cher (born Cherilyn Sarkisian; May 20, 1946) Recognized for having brought the sense of female autonomy and self-actualization into the entertainment industry, she is known for her distinctive contralto singing voice and for having worked in various areas of entertainment, as well as continuously reinventing both her music and image, which has led to her being nicknamed the Goddess of Pop.

Cher has covered many Bob Dylan songs throughout her career:

All I Really Wanna Do, Blowin’ In The Wind, Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right, I Threw It All Away, Like A Rolling Stone,  Masters Of War, The Times, They Are A-Changin’, Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You, Lay, Baby, Lay (yes, really!) and I Want You (Please tell us if there are more).

[blockquote cite=”Mr. WordPress” type=”left, center, right”]He’s [Willie Nelson] like a philosopher, you know. He gets to the heart of it in a quick way, gets it out and it’s over. And this leaves the listener to think about it.

The Avett Brothers plays Bob Dylan


The Avett Brothers from Concord, North Carolina is made up of two brothers, Scott Avett (banjo) and Seth Avett (guitar), as well as Bob Crawford (double bass) and Joe Kwon (cello). Mike Marsh (drums) and Paul Delfigia (keyboard) are touring members of the band, with Kwon featured on recordings from 2007’s Emotionalism and later.

I saw them at Oya Festival in Oslo a few years ago, a great concert.

The Avett Brothers have spent much of the past decade nurturing their skill as songwriters, along with their skills as vocalists and musicians. That said, most of their shows include very fine cover songs. I have dug up some fine interpretations of Bob Dylan songs.

The Avett Brothers talk about their favorite album: Bob Dylan’s “Blood on the Tracks”:
