    “Some people never worked a day in their life. Don’t know what work even means.” Workingman’s Blues #2 George Orr knows the world of work, and he also knows the world of Bob Dylan. At the age of 14 in 1962, this Liverpool native came under the spell of Dylan and slowly began to amass a vast trove of memorabilia. The reader is guaranteed to view previously unseen documents from Dylan’s career. This book contains newspaper clippings, posters, cartoons, pins, ticket stubs, and photos. All of these collectables come from a uniquely British perspective. In addition, Mr. Orr reflects in a diary format his path from those early years to current times. His words capture a five decade history. Events, personalities, tragedies, concerts, and whimsical tales punctuate his relentless pursuit of Dylan’s artistic development. Orr’s uncanny ability to parlay his “football” knowledge into wagering successes results in the monetary resources necessary to satisfy his collecting and performance desires.... More > After all, his working-class existence had its share of setbacks and disappointments. He knows intimately life’s fluctuations. But more importantly, he gets it right. Orr understands the genius of Dylan and his uncompromising desire to move forward despite negative critical reaction. Orr candidly admits that he is not a critic or scholar, but a passionate fan who resolutely follows and records the constant changes of our generation’s greatest artist. This book is required reading for committed Dylan fans. As an outsider from the heart of “Beatles Central,” Orr’s journey is a testament to the many throughout the world who were equally enlightened, moved, and entertained by Dylan’s music. Like great art and literature, it has no boundaries.< Less
