Share This:

A book of photos taken of Bob Dylan during what’s described as his “big bang” year of 1964–65 is being published on October 7 by TASCHEN Books. The book, Bob Dylan: A Year and a Day, presents a curated selection of nearly 200 images from photographer Daniel Kramer, including outtakes from the Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited album cover shoots. (The title was previously published as a limited edition, signed Collector’s Edition.) With stories throughout the book by Kramer, the publisher describes it as “an intimate and evocative testament to a seminal photographer, to a particular point in time, and to an exceptional, mysterious artist at the moment his career went global.”

The title was released in the U.K. on August 17.

More from the announcement: “Over the course of a year and a day, Kramer’s extraordinary access to Bob Dylan on tour, in concert, and backstage, allowed for one of the most mesmerizing photographic portfolios of any recording artist and a stunning document of Dylan breaking through to superstardom.”

Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings has released a 2-CD set of rare Dylan performances from 1962-1966, “a time of astonishing creativity, experimentation, and change for Dylan, the likes of which has arguably been rivaled in popular music only by the Beatles.” Read our full review here.

More from the announcement: “Highlights include the Lincoln Center’s Philharmonic Hall concert with Joan Baez; the Bringing It All Back Home recording sessions; and the now-famous concert at Forest Hills, when Dylan’s controversial transition to electric guitar exemplified his constant, cryptic state of becoming. As much a document of a seminal period of rock ’n’ roll history as of Dylan himself, the pictures also feature such compelling friends and collaborators as Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Allen Ginsberg, and [manager] Albert Grossman.”
