The Music Sales Group Releases Two New Dylan Books in Time for 48th Album and Historic Summer Ballpark Tour
The Music Sales Group is releasing the matching folio album to Bob Dylan's latest 2009 studio release, Together Through Life. Music Sales holds exclusive world print music rights to major artists like Paul Simon, AC/DC, Tori Amos, and Bob Dylan.
This latest release comes after much media attention since Bob Dylan announced his 2009 summer ballpark concert tour that will see the legendary singer/songwriter joined by country music icon Willie Nelson and rocker John Mellencamp.
The 48 page book is being sold for $17.95 at most major stores that carry printed music and online (ISBN 9780825637216). Other best selling Dylan songbooks include the 788 page The Definitive Bob Dylan Songbook (Bob Dylan) and the upcoming, highly anticipated, release of Dylan: 100 Songs & Pictures being released by Omnibus Press, a division of The Music Sales Group.
Dylan: 100 Songs & Pictures is the first ever authorized book of photos, lyrics and music printed! It details the core music of his career spanning almost 5 decades. Bob Dylan is popular music's most celebrated poet/singer/songwriter -- a legend, a maverick and a superstar who has rarely given away much about his personal life.
Now comes Dylan: 100 Songs & Pictures, a truly unique collectable book about the man, featuring the full sheet music of his most important songs plus the intimate stories behind them -- all accompanied by 100 rare photographs. Many of the songs have been chosen by fellow performers such as Bono and Sir Paul McCartney and together with the sometimes haunting and compelling photographs, they give an intimate insight into Dylan's progression from corduroy-capped folk hero to unrepentant electric rocker. The chosen songs match each stage of Dylan's personal and creative odyssey and sometimes look almost as potent on the printed page as they sound when Dylan performs them on stage or on record.
Dylan: 100 Songs & Pictures is both a celebration of a great artist and a highly-collectable book that shows Dylan's work in the context of his life and times, as well as revealing his influence on some of the greats who were his contemporaries or followers. Each of the 100 songs featured in this prestigious collection is printed with melody line, guitar chord boxes and full lyrics.
The result is a magnificent musical, visual and textual commentary on the life, music and influence of the one and only Bob Dylan. Dylan: 100 Songs & Pictures sells for $39.95 at major bookstores (ISBN 9781846094460) and includes 496 pages. See the book profile on amazon.com for Dylan: 100 Songs & Pictures.
