"Dave Marsh, the world's pre-eminent rock critic, offers the definitive and opinionated guide to the 1,001 greatest rock and soul singles ever made, each accompanied by an enlightening essay complete with music history and social commentary. These are not necessarily the best-selling singles ever released; these are the ones that made a difference--marking the times, defining a style, or possessing staying power. Others just sound good--with a touching lyric, a catchy hook, or a "pure, intense groove." This extraordinary, in-depth collection weaves and stretches across every popular musical sytle. Rock, metal, R&B, disco, folk, funk, punk, reggae, rap, soul. It is alive with searing Hendrix solos, thumping Sly Stone rhythms, and soaring Roy Orbison vocals. It revels with James Brown and rebels with the Sex Pistols. It brings yuou on a historical tour through the vaults of popular music--tiptoeing past the soft and tender, stomping across the furious and explosive, riding the energy that cuts through the air, through the body, and straight into... the heart of rock & soul"--Page [4] of cover

Forever young by Bob Dylan( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August 1964, twenty-one-year-old photographer Douglas R. Gilbert, on assignment for Look magazine, journeyed to the then-obscure upstate New York hamlet of Woodstock to photograph an up-and-coming folk singer named Bob Dylan. Just twenty-three years old, Dylan had already composed a striking body of work, including "Blowin' in the Wind," "With God on Our Side," "My Back Pages," and many others. Even so, his best-known songs had been hits for other artists, and he himself was still relatively unknown. All that was about to change. For more than a week, Gilbert photographed a surprisingly open Bob Dylan, smiling and relaxed among friends like musician John Sebastian and poet Allen Ginsberg. Following Dylan from Woodstock to Greenwich Village to the Newport Folk Festival, Gilbert captured Dylan in his many guises, from the budding family man to Village bohemian to spellbinding performer. To Gilbert's dismay, Look magazine deemed Dylan's appearance "too scruffy" for a family magazine, and the images remained unpublished and unseen, until now. Just a few months after these photographs were taken, Dylan would undergo striking stylistic and personal changes, and render himself inaccessible to media except under very controlled circumstances. Forever Young captures a young Dylan in the last days of his innocence. Rarely have we seen the camera-shy, taciturn singer seeming so comfortable in his own skin
