Wrapping Up The Dylan Retro ReviewsPosted: July 28, 2013
Well, it’s been a fun ride recounting the albums of Bob Dylan with you. I devoted a lot of time and care to it, mainly because of the reaction of my readers. My favorite part of this blog is the interaction, and these Retro Reviews certainly promoted a lot of that.
I’m taking a little break for a vacation this week, but I promise you the blog will not lie fallow for long. These Retro Reviews are a great way to dive into the work of an artist, so I plan on starting one again up very soon. (Lots of possibilities for artists, but I’ll take suggestions.)
Obviously, I’ll still be promoting the Dylan book as much as possible in the meantime. On that note, I would ask again that, if you have ordered it and have a little time when you finish reading, you write out a little review on Amazon, Barnes &Noble, GoodReads, or whatever online site you choose. I’m not asking for raves unless you think the book deserves it, just your honest assessment. It will help the book get in front of more potential buyers.
For those of you who haven’t ordered and really like the site, I can say that the book is in the same vein as the Retro Reviews, only it goes deeper and much more thorough into Dylan’s songs. I think you’d like it, so I hope you check it out. Remember that it’s available on all major online sites and is available in E-book form as well. (For those relatively new to the site, search my name, Jim Beviglia, on Amazon and you’ll see the trio of E-Books I’ve done on Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, and Radiohead, all available at reasonable prices.) Also, you can check in on my writing at American Songwriter. (I’m reviewing the new Bootleg Series discs; you’re going to love them.)
That will do it for my shameless plugging. For now, I just want to thank everyone who read and participated. Keep the comments coming and I promise to respond when I can. And stay tuned for more very soon from your friendly neighborhood Countdown Kid.
