Editorial Reviews

Had anyone suggested during the 1980s that Bob Dylan would re-invent himself yet again during the decades that followed, to once more become the music-world's most respected artist, while achieving number one albums along the way, they may well have been met with a wry smile, if not outright derision. But somehow Dylan pulled it off and after a lengthy period of lacklustre music and performances he again became the most important icon of the rock age. This documentary film follows the career and music of Bob Dylan from the aftermath of his stunning 1989 comeback album Oh Mercy and follows his story up to 2006's masterpiece, Modern Times. Featuring a wealth of archive material, performance footage, exclusive and classic interviews, contributions from many close confidantes plus writers and Dylan experts Johnny Rogan, Derek Barker, Clinton Heylin and Nigel Williamson, along with location film, news reports and some of the finest music recorded during the last 20 years

The "Never Ending Narrative 1990-2006" is, as its title indicates, a video that attempts to portray Dylan's career over roughly a sixteen year period. This is a period that saw many changes in the artist's continual development. The video consists of interviews by journalists and a few musicians who had worked with Dylan during this period. Like its "sister project" -- "Gotta Serve My Time" -- this video is not worth the time it takes to watch it. The "Dylan experts" inflate their egos by dismissing much of the work and misunderstanding almost all of it. Some of the musician's insights are interesting and valuable in understanding the work, but most of the video is weighed down by the gossipy, self-serving opinions of so-called "Dylan-ologists." This is not a very insightful or useful video.

is a survivor. When he released Oh Mercy in 1989, the album was praised far and wide as his long-awaited return to form. The one-time "Voice of a Generation" had once again begun to restore his vitality. In the two decades that have passed since then, Dylan has produced some of his most consummate work, rivaling many of his songs from the mid-'60s. How did he do it? What constitutes this new vitality? And does his importance today amount to mere icon worship? These are important questions, and the forthcoming DVD documentary, Bob Dylan, 1990-2006: The Never Ending Narrative, answers them.
Who's in the Film?

The Never Ending Narrative is basically a primer for new or old fans that want to understand Dylan in his later years. It's "Post-1990s Bob Dylan 101," chockful of commentary by some of the world's leading Dylanologists and music journalists. There's Clinton Heylin, who's written a half-dozen books about Dylan over the years, most notably Behind the Shades Revisited. Derek Barker, publisher of the Bob Dylan fanzine Isis is on board.

Meanwhile, Rolling Stone magazine's Robert Christgau has been following Dylan for the past few decades and is well-known for his sober, no-holds barred criticism. On the recording end, Mark Howard was the engineer during the Oh Mercy sessions. And then, a few other names are thrown in for color.

This is one of those documentaries that uses the trusty format where the interviewee sits in a chair talking to the camera, and then the screen cuts-to a still photograph which the camera pans over as the voice-over continues.

This DVD was little more than a History lesson albeit biased about Mr. Dylan . Very little music or performances . Short clips from public domain,no interviews with the musicians . THIS DVD IS NOT ENDORSED BY DYLAN OR HIS CO. !!! TALKING HEADS RAMBLING ON AND ON !!! There is an interview with Dylan at the end with the press , though no video .

This DVD is one of about six Dylan-related DVDs that have been released over the years by Chrome Dreams. It is one of the better ones, in my opinion, because it has actual video clips (they are clips, not full songs) of Dylan performing - taken from either TV appearances or promotional music videos.

This is part of the "Under Review" series which consists of interviews with well known music journalists (Robert Christgau for example) and music biographers (with the occasional recording engineer) discussing an album. They are done in chronological order. This volume brings us pretty much up to date as it was done in 2008 and covers "Modern Times". There is some coverage of the Dylan Theme Time Radio Hour (a show I truly love) but surprisingly no mention is ever made of the series producer Eddie Goredetzky, who is the one who searched out the records played and did a lot of the research. While Dylan read the script and is knowledgeable about the songs, it was not all his idea and to overlook Eddie G is wrong.

The "main feature" runs 105 minutes and the package lists bonus as including "extended interviews" - as well as "full contributor biographies". The bios are there as screen text but there are no "extended interviews" with the contributors. There is a AUDIO-only press interview with Dylan however.

Dylan fans will get a lot out of the DVD, though it's really something you'll probably play only once.
