Trouble in Mind documents the tours and recording sessions with an obsessive detail that, at the very least, encourages the reader to come at it all afresh. . . . his interrogation of what it was all for is, to fans like me, highly illuminating.” —NewStatesman

The first-ever examination of Bob Dylan’s controversial yet extraordinary “Gospel Years,” publishing in sync with Trouble No More – The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981

Between 1979 and 1981, Dylan produced and released three of his most controversial albums—Slow Train Coming, Saved, and Shot of Love—toured the world, and played the most contentious shows of his career. Remarkably, this entire period was perhaps the most fastidiously well-documented of his career, with every studio session, every live show and every single rehearsal recorded on Dylan’s behalf. For the first time, that material has been excavated, reviewed, and accessed by “the world’s foremost Dylan scholar…” (Rolling Stone).
