Still on the Road: The Songs of Bob Dylan Vol. 2: 1974–2008.

This second volume in Clinton Heylin's stunningly detailed survey of the songs of Bob Dylan, following Revolution in the Air (which traced Dylan's songwriting and recording from 1957 to 1973), begins with Blood on the Tracks, the watershed album that contained such masterworks as "Tangled Up in Blue" and "Simple Twist of Fate." A leading expert on Dylan and the author of the often-updated biography Behind the Shades, Heylin has arranged the songs in a chronology of when they were actually written, using manuscripts, anecdotal evidence, and a seemingly limitless knowledge of Dylan's live performances to reveal hundreds of facts about the songs. We learn about Dylan's contributions to the Traveling Wilburys; the women who inspired Blood on the Tracks and Desire; the sources Dylan "plagiarized" for Love and Theft and Modern Times; why he left "Blind Willie McTell" off of Infidels and "Series of Dreams" off of Oh Mercy; and what broke the long dry spell he had in the 1990s.
