Andrew Muir published Razor's Edge: Bob Dylan and the Never Ending Tour in September 2001. The book chronicles the first fifteen years of Dylan's Never Ending Tour from the point of view of a committed fan of the Tour, analysing how Dylan varies his interpretations of his songs, and exploring Dylan's possible motivations. In July 2013, Muir updated Razor's Edge when he published One More Night: Bob Dylan's Never Ending Tour: this book covers Dylan's touring activities from 1988 to 2011

"You hear sometimes about the glamour of the road, but you get over that real fast. There are a lot of times that's no different from going to work in the morning. Still, you're either a player or you're not a player… If you just go out every three years or so, like I was doing for a while, that's when you lose your touch. If you are going to be a performer, you've got to give it your all."-Bob Dylan

While most of rock's elder statesmen rarely venture far from home, the ultimate rock icon Bob Dylan has spent practically all of his life since 1986 touring the globe-including a gig at a military academy, a private convert for Japanese businessmen and a special performance for Pope John Paul II: Why?

I love any book about Bob, and this was one if the best. The only better one would be chronicles 2.

Being a Dylan fan, I was curious to find out more information about him. This book had enough usable information for me to be able to find out the best of his live performances and go to youtube and sort out his most amazing stuff. Something that saved me enormous time and the book gave me insights to many of these performances that would have just escaped me otherwise. In addition, I learned quite a few startling things about this guy. His wealth, his attitudes, his addictions and contradictions. The book was well worth reading although it did go into technical details on his concerts and song lists and muscicians that was not something that I needed in that minute detail. Really worth reading!

RAZOR'S EDGE is a far cut above the Dylan books which glut the market. Andrew Muir rises above the fray, and gives us coverage of the mysteries of Dylan's Never Ending Tour. The serious fan will feed their addiction, and the merely interested will find a fascinating look at a rock legend. Muir is an expert, but never flaunts his bonafides. Instead he guides the reader through the maze of Dylan, and helps to acclimate them and set the record straight. Muir's enthusiasm draws us in, and his anecdotes make us want to follow along from city to city.

I love this book! I like reading complete details of Bob's Never Ending Tour. It's interesting to note that the only two bad reviews here are by the same person using different names. That's called an agenda, not a review.

Buy this book if you want to complete your library of Dylan books. Andrew Muir has first person insights, more than a lot of people can say.

I couldn't disagree more with the two reviews above, from the same hand I hasten to add(he was so disgsuted he worte in twice !!). What Andrew Muir has written here is a wonderful insight into Dylans's Never Ending Tour. The reviewer above has totally missed the point. This is not a Dylan biography, there are plenty of those around. This fills a big gap in the Dylan market, writing about his actual performances. That is the heart of Dylan's art. Paul Williams captures it superbly in everything he writes, his amazing enthusiasm captues concerts in all their glory. The NET is a remarkable thing in music terms. Dylan has been on the road every year since 1988 (since 1986 in fact with TP & the Heartbreakers) with an ever evolving show of amazing highs and spectacular lows. He was 47 when it started and he is 61 now. Of course Andrews's book is for fans, but I can tell, as someone who is often bored by Dylan books that I have heard before, Andrew's book is immensley readable, entertaining, funny and informative. I highly reccomend it to any Dylan fans out there. There isn;t another book available that tells this story, and it is such a huge part now of the Dylan story.

The problem with this honest and well-intended book is that it's far, far too close to its subject, the cosmically and intentionally elusive Bob Dylan, to offer any real insights into whatever Dylan's Never-Ending Tour means beyond, well, the fact that he's been touring for about thirteen years straight. Dylan's own interviews, as strange as they are, offer infinitely more insights than this book can. Imagine a book about Frank Sinatra's last tours, with notes on how differently Sinatra performed "My Way" in London than he did in Las Vegas the year before, as contrasted to his astonishing "My Way" on that stellar night in New York, according to the author's best friend, because he wasn't there himself. And what Frank was wearing...the blue tux or the black. You get the idea... This is, in short, a book about a Bob Dylan fan. If you're interested in any genuinely useful, original insights into Bob Dylan, don't buy this book and go see Dylan himself instead. If you haven't, this book is a total waste. If you have, it's just irrelevant.
ME
Mr. Muir writes with such enthusiasm and intrigue that the reader feels as if he/she is at one of the concerts. Dylan is still a very vital entertainer, even in his old age, who still performs world-class rock concerts and releases wonderful albums. One only has to read Mr. Muir's chapter on Prague 1995 to see that this is a book for music fans, as well as Bob Cats.
