Love, Hate & Betrayal


The inside story of Blood On The Tracks

* In 1975, Bob Dylan turned the crisis of a disintegrating relationship with his wife Sara into one of rock’s most compelling dramas.

* In this month’s Uncut, we look at the making of Blood On The Tracks, the album that Dylan created from the wreckage of his marriage and which marked his artistic rebirth.

* “It’s one of the most truthful dissections of love gone wrong in rock history,” writes Dylan expert and author Nick Hasted. “By turns recriminatory, bitter and heartbroken. It is one of Dylan’s peaks, the record where his genius and frail humanity meet.”

* For the full story of this remarkable record and the painful personal circumstances that inspired it, don’t miss this month’s Uncut, on sale now.

* Also in this issue, we feature Oscar-winning director of The Last Picture Show on John Ford, one of the true immortals of American cinema, talk to the former first lady of punk, Siouxsie Sioux about sex, drugs and shock tactics, revisit Oliver Stone’s Vietnam movies and laugh ourselves into a stupor with the hilarious Dolly Parton, report on Neil Young playing with Paul McCartney at this year’s Bridge charity concert and pay our respects to the great John Peel. Spider-Man director Sam Raimi, meanwhile, picks his Top 10 horror films and we review new albums and reissues from John Lennon, Nirvana, Mercury Rev, The Grateful Dead and Eminem. On the movie front, we review and rate hip new American comedy Garden State, Brian Wilson in the Beautiful Dreamer documentary and do the same to the new DVD of cult classic Memento.
* And to complete what we hope you’ll find an irresistible package, you have a choice of two CDs – Tracks That Influenced Bob Dylan, featuring music from Woody Guthrie, Chuck Berry, Hank Williams, Martin Carthy, Blind Willie McTell and Bert Jansch, and Tracks Inspired By Bob Dylan, featuring Warren Zevon, Billy Bragg, John Prine,  Richie Havens, Robyn Hitchcock with Gillian Welch and many more.
