Untold Dylan: “I’ll let you be in my dream if I can be in yours”


Over 2700 articles

and over 11,000 comments…

A list of our recent posts appears in the right hand column, near the top.  But in case you can’t see that (for example if reading this site on a mobile phone) that list of the most recent articles, with links, also appears at the foot of this column.

In both (right column and foot of this page) you can find a search button to seek out a particular article although please note that this does not work with apostrophes (for reasons that will not become clear at this point).

You can find out more about our authors on the Untold Writers page.  If you would like to write for Untold Dylan please email your article (ideally as a word file) to Tony@schools.co.uk

Complete list of all Dylan songs

This has now reached 627 songs with the addition of Price of Love – which has just had the lyrics added to the review.  The alphabetical index of all the Dylan compositions we know about is here.

Recent articles and series…

On the right hand column and again at the foot of this column is a list of recent articles.  Many of these articles form part of a series and in most cases at the top of each article is a list of the previous articles in the series.

Among the series currently running are those listed below.  If you don’t see an episode listed on the right or at the foot of this page, then go to the search box and type in the name of the series and that should bring up the latest or last episode, which will have within it links to previous episodes.

Also at the very top of this page just under the picture you will find a list of other series that may be of interest.

What Rolling Stone had to say about Untold Dylan

“Tell Ol’ Bill” is a favorite among hardcore Dylan fans like Tony Attwood at Untold Dylan, who called it “one of Dylan’s two greatest works of all time” and wrote a fascinating piece tracing its origins through several bootleg versions. As documented there, the singer tried a few approaches, from one version that echoes the groove of “Thunder on the Mountain” to another that’s more reminiscent of “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry.” “Gradually,” Attwood writes, “Dylan moves towards the masterpiece that we have come to know.”

Thank you Rolling Stone.  I knew you’d find us one day – Tony
