THE RHYMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’
TITLE: THE LYRICS: SINCE 1962
AUTHOR: BOB DYLAN
EDITOR: CHRISTOPHER RICKS, LISA NEMROW, JULIE NEMROW
PUBLISHER: SIMON AND SCHUSTER
RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 28, 2014 (NYC)
The most complete collection of Bob Dylan’s lyrics we are likely to see in our lifetime has just been published, and the most notable thing about it is the juxtaposition of Dylan’s lyrical changes in many songs from their original recorded versions to the printed versions to the various live recorded versions, yielding in some cases three rather different texts. Each section is framed by a full-size replica of the original album cover, in full color front and back. The dimensions of the LP determined the size of the book.
As my rabbi pointed out after seeing Dylan’s third concert at the Dolby Theatre (I reviewed the first in these pages) Bob seemed to have altered the lyrics my rabbi knew in both Tangled Up in Blue and Simple Twist of Fate. What gives? He wondered; we are accustomed to hearing different tempos, arrangements, instrumentation, even melodies for many of Dylan’s classic songs in live performance; now must we also get used to different lyrics? At what point do we find it difficult to think we heard the same song?
So I decided to order the $200, 961 page, 13 pound book and find out for myself. It just arrived from Barnes & Noble in NYC and what can I say? Rabbi, Things Have Changed.Read more: THE RHYMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’
