Trouble In Mind: Bob Dylan’s Gospel Years – What Really Happened
by Clinton Heylin
‘When I get involved in something, I get totally involved. I don’t just play around on the fringes.’ – Bob Dylan
In 1979 there was… trouble in mind, and trouble in store for the ever-iconoclastic Dylan. But unlike in 1965-66, the artifactal afterglow – three albums in three years, Slow Train Coming, Saved and Shot of Love – barely reflected the explosion of faith and inspiration. One has to look elsewhere, and in Trouble In Mind, Clinton Heylin has; connecting the dots on the man’s gospel years by drawing on a wealth of new information, newly-found recordings and new interviews. His primary goal? To make the case for a wholesale re-evaluation of the music Bob Dylan produced in these inspiring times.
‘The only Dylanologist worth reading.’ – New York Times
