* SLOUGHING TOWARDS BIG PINK
This book is a stylish blend of memoir, travelogue, and scholarship. From the West Midlands to West Saugerties, the Isle of Wight to the New York island, these essays see Adrian Smith fly the flag for folk in 'sixties Coventry, criss-cross America in the footsteps of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, ride a fifty-year rollercoaster of Dylan performances, trace the sad story of Bob Dylan and Rick Nelson, and look to The Band for a soundscape of his son's final illness.
