11 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The first of two volumes, this companion to every song that Bob Dylan ever wrote is by far the most comprehensive book on the words of America?s greatest songwriter. Here you?ll find not just opinionated commentary or literary interpretation, but facts, first and foremost. Clinton Heylin is the world?s leading Dylan biographer and expert, and he has arranged the songs--including a number that have never been performed--in a continually surprising chronology of when they were actually written rather than when they appeared on albums. Using newly discovered manuscripts, anecdotal evidence, and a seemingly limitless knowledge of every Bob Dylan live performance, he has uncovered a wealth of information about the songs, leaving no stone unturned in his research." -- Publisher description

Babylon's burning : from punk to grunge by Clinton Heylin ( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Destined to become a classic on the subject alongside Legs McNeil's Please Kill Me, Babylon's Burning is a groundbreaking, definitive account of punk rock, one of the most influential and lasting music movements in history--a movement that ironically was built on self-annihilation. Acclaimed critic Clinton Heylin seamlessly weaves together the lives of disparate artists who had in common not the music (there was no distribution) but the pictures, words, and fashions depicted in magazines like Creem and NME. It was a sound that eschewed conventional lyrics, promoted a gutteral musicality but yet contained a keen pop sensibility. Whether exploring the work of early progenitors like Suicide, The New York Dolls, and Patti Smith or charting the progress of the bands who legitimately took up the mantle in the eighties and nineties, Clinton Heylin brings to life the strands of a global artform. From the Sex Pistols's clarion call of a record, Never Mind the Bollocks, to Kurt Cobain's songs of an alienated youth, Babylon's Burning is the brilliant, exhaustively researched story that once and for all defines what Punk is and is not. --Publisher
Despite the system : Orson Welles versus the Hollywood studios by Clinton Heylin ( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Revealing the facts rather than the myths behind Orson Welles's Hollywood career, this history fills in the gaps behind the drama of one of the most well-known American filmmakers. Exploring why Welles's films, as released, never matched his youthful masterpiece Citizen Kane, this historical investigation delves into the enemies that hounded him, his unwaning faith in his audience, and the brilliance of his films--before they were butchered by the studios. Based on shooting scripts, schedules, internal memos, interviews, articles, lectures, and personal correspondence, this work creates a concrete picture of his struggles and successes, bringing to life the intelligent, perceptive, and passionate man who, for all his failings as a person, was utterly uncompromising in his art.--From publisher description
