"August 2014 marks 50 years since Bob Dylan released his remarkable fourth album, Another Side of Bob Dylan. Recorded in one night, in the middle of a turbulent year in his life, the album marked a departure from Dylan's socially-conscious folk songs and began his evolution toward other directions in his music. Few people outside Dylan's immediate family have ever been closer than Victor Maymudes, who was Dylan's tour manager, personal friend, and travelling companion from the first days in 1960s Greenwich Village through the late 90's. Another Side of Bob Dylan recounts landmark events including Dylan's infamous motorcycle crash; meeting the Beatles on their first US tour; his marriage to Sarah Lownds, his romances with Suze Rotolo, Joan Baez, and others; fellow travelers including Ramblin Jack Elliott, Wavy Gravy, Dennis Hopper, The Band, The Traveling Wilburys, and many more; memorable concerts around the world, and the recording of his seminal album, Blood on the Tracks. On January 26th, 2001, after recording more than 24 hours of taped memories in preparation for writing this book, Victor Maymudes suffered an aneurysm and died. His son Jacob has written the book, using the tapes to shape the story. The result is a vivid, first hand, and unique account of Dylan as an artist, friend, and celebrity, illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, and told by an engaging raconteur who cut his own swathe through the turbulent counterculture"--Provided by publisher.

Easy to read, but not what I was expecting. Yes it does speak of Bob Dylan at length, but more this book is about the meglomaniacal author Victor Maymudes. Never knew who he was but to hear this story through the eyes of his son Jacob you get the impression that Victor was the mover and creator of everything although he mekly denies it. What a name dropper is Victor.

This is more a book about the Maymudes than about Dylan. From the transcript of his tapes, Victor seems like an OK person, but not his son. Some insights into Dylan, but nothing earthshattering.
