SURVIVING IN A RUTHLESS WORLD
Bob Dylan’s 1983 album INFIDELS was a departure from his previous works in so many ways – lyrics, music, production and spirit. SURVIVING IN A RUTHLESS WORLD draws on previously unseen, and unheard resources in The Bob Dylan Archive® in Tulsa. It is the story of the writing and the recording of the album’s eight songs and unreleased tracks from the INFIDELS project.
Terry Gans was granted unique permission to write, research and quote from Dylan’s personal notebooks, voluminous song drafts, 49 reels of master session tapes and from reference recordings and documents. Together with interviews with musicians, managers, video producers, and more Terry Gans creates a detailed picture of Bob Dylan creating his art with all of his usual mystery and magic.
