Daniel Kramer's classic Bob Dylan portfolio captures the artist's transformative "big bang" year of 1964-65. Over the course of a year and a day, Kramer's extraordinary access to Bob Dylan on tour, in concert, and backstage, allowed for one of the most mesmerizing photographic portfolios of any recording artist and a stunning document of Dylan breaking through to superstardom.
Highlights include the Lincoln Center's Philharmonic Hall concert with Joan Baez; the Bringing It All Back Home recording sessions; and the now-famous concert at Forest Hills, when Dylan's controversial transition to electric guitar exemplified his constant, cryptic state of becoming. As much a document of a seminal period of rock 'n' roll history as of Dylan himself, the pictures also feature such compelling friends and collaborators as Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Allen Ginsberg, and Albert Grossman.
Bob Dylan: A Year and a Day presents a curated selection of nearly 200 images, including outtakes from the Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited album cover shoots. Previously published by TASCHEN as a signed Collector's Edition, this standard edition is the more affordable boon to any serious photography or Dylan fan. With stories throughout the book by Kramer, this is at once an intimate and evocative testament to a seminal photographer, to a particular point in time, and to an exceptional, mysterious artist at the moment his career went global.

The Greek Fire examines the United States' early global influence as the fledgling nation that inserted itself in conflicts that were oceans away. Maureen Connors Santelli focuses on the American fascination with and involvement in the Greek Revolution in the 1820s and 1830s. That nationalist movement incited an American philhellenic movement that pushed the borders of US interests into the eastern Mediterranean and infused a global perspective into domestic conversations concerning freedom and reform.
Perceiving strong cultural, intellectual, and racial ties with Greece, American men and women identified Greece as the seedbed of American democracy and a crucial source of American values. From Maryland to Missouri and Maine to Georgia, grassroots organizations sent men, money, and supplies to aid the Greeks. Defending the modern Greeks from Turkish slavery and oppression was an issue on which northerners and southerners agreed. Philhellenes, often led by women, joined efforts with benevolence and missionary groups and together they promoted humanitarianism, education reform, and evangelism. Public pressure on the US Congress, however, did not result in intervention on behalf of the Greeks. Commercial interests convinced US officials, who wished to cultivate commercial ties with the Ottomans, to remain out of the conflict.
The Greek Fire analyzes the role of Americans in the Greek Revolution and the aftermath of US involvement. In doing so, Santelli revises understandings of US involvement in foreign affairs, and she shows how diplomacy developed at the same time as Americans were learning what it meant to be a country, and what that country stood for.

Описание: This book was inspired by the eight-part Grammy nominated film series titled Soundbreaking: Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music . As Executive Producer Sir George Martin was the inspiration and intellectual force behind the series which explores a century's worth of innovation and experimentation in the creation of music to present a behind-the-scenes look at the birth of new sounds. From the Beatles' groundbreaking use of multitrack technology to the synthesized stylings of Stevie Wonder from disco-era drum machines to the modern art of sampling Soundbreaking tells the stories behind the sounds and reveals how innovation redefined not only what we listen to and how we listen to it but our very sense of what music is and can be. Soundbreaking features original interviews with more than 150 of the most celebrated artists producers and music industry pioneers of our time. This volume presents a curated selection of those interviews from across eras and genres. The twenty-one artists featured here share their personal insights which point to themes that emerge and echo throughout: the importance of varied cultural influences on music careers; the role of technology innovation in the creative process; and most commonly the human connection to music. Through their lens we discover fascinating new insights into music and especially into the relationship between artist and genres an area that has been rarely studied. For some readers this book will evoke many of the sounds and textures of days gone by. For others it will serve to open doors to further enjoyment and that those readers will pursue artists and others whose names may not be familiar. Robert Santelli's introductions to each of the profiles puts each artist in context. They have all made valuable contributions to what has often been referred to as the soundtrack of our lives. Their music is as relevant today as when we first heard it. Recorded music has crossed the lines that separate cultures ideas and generations. In exploring the story of their own music the voices in this book provide thoughtful insight to the extraordinary influences of recorded music on the modern world.
