TROUBLE IN MIND: BOOK LAUNCH. BOB DYLAN’S GOSPEL YEARS – SOLD OUT
November 16 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
THIS EVENT HAS NOW SOLD OUT.
The CAT Club in association with route publishing presents a classic vinyl album: SLOW TRAIN COMING by BOB DYLAN.
The album will be presented by the world’s leading Dylan authority, Clinton Heylin. Clinton will be launching his new book, Trouble In Mind: Bob Dylan’s Gospel Years – What Really Happened.
On 20th August 1979, the remarkable Slow Train Coming was released. It was the first of three albums released since Bob Dylan’s conversion to Christianity. Inevitably the evangelical nature of the record caused a furore and, not for the first time in the great man’s career, divided his fans and concert goers yet again.
Musically, with the Muscle Shoals Alabama sound, and the terrific band (including Mark Knopfler and Pick Withers from Dire Straits) it ranks amongst Dylan’s greatest achievements.
The Bishop of Leeds, Nick Baines, will also be with us to discuss all things Dylan and this incredible period in his life.
On 3rd November Sony will be releasing the latest in their Dylan ‘Bootleg Series’ which covers his gospel period and features some of the greatest recordings you will ever have the pleasure of listening to.
And just to prove it, get Youtube up on your widescreen TV, crank up the volume and check this out:
