New edition of Bob Dylan Encyclopedia hits the High Street

The new (expanded, updated, paperbacked) edition of The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia by Michael Gray has hit the High Street, after a slight delay. It was very visible in major London stockists yesterday.

The paperback edition of the Encyclopedia has numerous new entries, but comes without the full-text CD-ROM released with the hardback edition. (No big deal - I’ve only consulted my disc once in 18 months).

List price is £16.99; Borders are discounting it to £12.99 – an unmissable bargain if you passed on the hardback. HMV and subsidiary Fopp have it at £15.

The Bob Dylan Encyclopedia was reviewed in depth and serialised on on first publication (check The Dylan Daily Archives for details)
