“…how many roads…”

With the recent passing of his 70th birthday, we tip our hat to the songwriter’s songwriter, Mr. Bob Dylan…

Dylan has been called “the voice of his generation” (a term he never really cared for), yet, he has survived generation after generation to still be as relevant today as he was almost 50 years ago…

That ‘staying power’ is evident in the latest documentary by the good folks at ISIS, who previously brought us “Tales From The Golden Age”, “After The Crash”, “Both Ends Of The Rainbow”, and now, part 4 in the Dylan legacy, “The Never Ending Narrative”…

This particular part of the story takes us through the times of his life from the album “Oh Mercy” and through to “Modern Times”, while also showing us an inside glimpse into his love of the movies as well, with his various soundtrack contributions (including “Things Have Changed” from ‘The Wonder Boys’, for which he won an Oscar), and his acting in such vehicles as the wonderfully insightful “Masked And Anonymous”…

Though Dylan had a bit of a rough patch thru the eighties, (as most artists did), he somehow survived the decade of bad music to retain what made him so unique in the first place, and his life, as well as the producers and musicians around him, each greatly affected his output and his choices…

And he’s still making choices today, with more great albums and even a hit radio show, so you know that a ‘part 5’ can’t be far behind…

If you are a Dylan fan, these documentaries are a must…

If you are a music fan, they are essential…
