Britain played a key role in Bob Dylan's career in the 1960s. He visited Britain regularly and performed across the country both as an acoustic folksinger and as an 'electric' rock star. His tours of Britain in the mid-sixties feature heavily in documentary films such as D.A. Pennebaker's 'Don't Look Back' and Martin Scorsese's 'No Direction Home' and the concerts contain some of his most acclaimed ever live performances. Dylan was influenced by British stars such as The Beatles and The Animals and, they, in turn, influenced him. Yet this key period in Dylan's artistic development is still under-represented in the vast library of books on Dylan. Tudor Jones rectifies that glaring gap with this deeply researched, yet highly readable account of Dylan and the British 1960s.
