In 2004, Dylan released Chronicles: Volume One, the first of what is supposed to be a three-part series recounting his life. Chronicles started when his label asked him to write an essay to accompany a compilation album. That little essay turned into a 304 page self-portrait of the famous musician. “I really didn’t want to,” he said. “But then I was thinking it would be a good opportunity to say some stuff about this period of time in maybe ’62 to’63. I walked off The Ed Sullivan Show when it was real popular in America. I wanted to take myself back to that time and relive it.” Can you say “over-achiever?” Well, Dylan fans weren’t complaining, and they should definitely be pleased to hear Dylan is getting back to the pen and paper.
