Description

Bob Dylan, along with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, completely revolutionised music in the 1960's ushering in a new era of artistic expression that has paved the way for everything that has followed in Pop and Rock music. Dylan not only represented the future of music in the Sixties but was also a standard bearer for all of the great American musical genres that had preceded his arrival on the scene.

Throughout his career Dylan has taken various elements of Folk, Country, Blues, Rock 'n' Roll, Bluegrass, Western Swing, Rockabilly, Pop and just about anything else he has heard and forged them together into his own unique style.

On this release we track down the artists and songs that were to play such an important part in Dylan's career. There's Folk influences in the shape of Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly, Country legends such as Hank Williams and Roy Acuff, Old-Timey pioneers including Charlie Poole and Clarence Ashley, Blues giants like Charley Patton and Blind Lemon Jefferson, Rock 'n' Rollers Elvis Presley and Little Richard and Bluegrass luminaries such as Bill Monroe and the Stanley Brothers.

Also included is a feature length DVD, 'Talkin' Dylan' that includes interviews with some of the world's most renowned Dylanologists discussing not only the roots of Dylan but the world of Bob in general.
