flag czech * VÍC NEŽ JEN HLAS, by Bob Dylan

    From former Czechoslowakia, the book presents lyrics by various artists translated in Czech. The title means 'More than just a voice'. First printing from 1980 "in a run of 96 000 copies" (!). All seven featured artists get an introduction in Czech of several pages. Dylan's story is called Rebel With a Cause, so it might be based on that early text. Some songs are accompanied by a photo.
    František Novotný and Jiri Vejvoda mentioned on the front cover are probably the translator and the author of the introductions.
    Published by Kamarád, from Prague, which could be a bookclub. Size 13 x 20 cm. The book, paperback, has 391 pages of which 101 are devoted to Dylan, 21 for the story and the rest for the lyrics. No ISBN.     
    Thank you to Hans Bosch and Jürgen Wasser for the image and information.
