Michael Gray wrote his first article on Bob Dylan for the counterculture magazine OZ in 1967 when its editor asked him to Do an F.R. Leavis on Bob Dylans songs. Hes been writing about those songs ever since. Alongside his groundbreaking Song & Dance Man trilogy and the massive Bob Dylan Encyclopedia, Gray has been bringing his acuity to Dylans career for newspapers, magazines and journals from the 1960s to the present day. Here we have eye-witness accounts of concerts: from a mercurial 1966 show in Liverpool through to bulletins from glorious, and not so glorious, shows on the Never-Ending Tour. Dylans blues roots are explored in train rides through Mississippi. On a trip to Hibbing, Gray gets to play the same piano in the same school hall where Dylan hammered out Little Richard numbers in the 1950s. Throughout, Gray turns his critical attention to Dylans work as it appears, from his immediate perceptive take on 1975s Blood On The Tracks up to a new, extended essay on 2020s Rough And Rowdy Ways. Ever since the pioneering Song & Dance Man in 1972, Michael Gray has been the go-to critic for Dylan fans in search of serious analysis of this most elusive artists work. In Outtakes On Bob Dylan, we get Gray the man as well as a unique measure of Dylans long career as it unfolds, not in retrospect but in real time.
