Why doesn’t he sing his own material this well?
“‘Oh God, I hope yours wasn’t Bob Dylan. He’s slept with everyone!’
First, the major question, how much will this monster concert cost?
“He was able to secure a rights deal for Dylan’s massive song catalog”
From “Blowin’ In The Wind” to “Love Sick”? That will do the job.
I’m hoping for presale code but one way or the other, I’ll be there
A musician who straps on his guitar in hotel rooms to see where he’s at
The folk stuff in the Savoy is excellent, the new stuff in Denver doesn’t quite make the cut.
It is as if Dave and Bobby have morphed into all those “Paul Is Dead” conspiracy theorists.
And that, my friends, is a wrap
On “Just Like A Woman” where it wasn’t that huge change in a line that gift wrapped the song, it was when he figured out the bridge
The all out rocker “Pledging My Time Take One” is even better than the one that made it.
Dylan will get the song right but we won’t hear it completed till Disc Fifteen.
February 14th in Nashville, the first day of the new regime
If he was, as rumoured, an out of control drug addict during these sessions, you sure can’t hear it. Immediately, like all the Dylan recording sessions, the professionalism is impeccable
Tomorrow is probably the worst day on the year. I mean, as days with nothing much wrong with them go
Still January, still New York, still not happening
A follow up to “Like A Rolling Stone” and “Positively 4th Street”? with “Stone” reaching # 2, “4th Street” # 7, “Crawl” wasn’t strong enough and didn’t get beyond #58
He spent hours without figuring out that he needed to slow “Visions Of Johanna” to a crawl.
Who in their right mind would record “Queen Jane Approximately” and “Ballad Of A thin Man”, look at his watch and say, hey let’s give “Desolation Row” a shot
Two of them are among the greatest songs in his career and while “Ballad Of A Thin Man” isn’t as great, that’s only comparative
Only two songs on July 30th, and only one of em made it on the album, and it was minor. Then on to August 2nd, trying to nail down “Highway 61 Revisited”.
If I’d have been aware of all this back in the day I’d have sworn it was creative suicide switching horses in midstream and guess what?
Tom, the man that added a rock band to Simon And Garfunkel’s “The Sound Of Silence” without the duo’s approval, was part of the entire process
What follows that is day one of the Highway 61 Revisited Sessions and Tom Wilson’s last stand
Fifty years later, 24 year old Dylan, goofing on song titles, orchestrating his band, sharing laughs comes down to us through the years.
Day three and this is the heart of the recording session, six songs completed and would appear on Bringing It All Back Home, an album so great we should bow down to it on Sundays and salute it when its birthday comes
I think simply showing up was good enough and how. yet again, the great bard shows the world what Americans, and entertainers, think of terrorism. The Jewish maestro thumbed his nose at them,.
Dylan is still a folkie enough to keep the retakes at a minimum and more or less the songs sound pretty set in place on the first day, by the second day the band is there and things are getting wilder
By the way, there is another connect between Paris and Dylan: Dylan is playing Austria tonight, Italy on Wednesday… I guess Grohl forgot to send him the memo…
That Dylan Collectors Edition? You listen to him deciding to cut the harp till the end of “One Of Must Know (Sooner Or Later)” because he wants to bring it in under five minutes!!!! This is heaven…
If you are going to romance something beyond recognition, by all means let it be “Like A Rolling Stone” but if you are going to claim he didn’t have the song down, and indeed, might have never released it at all, show some proof.
Sure, it is, simply, a must own: the greatest songwriter of the 20th Century at the peak of his powers… if I had $500 I’d buy the 300 track Collector’s Edition. But it isn’t quite what it appears to be.
Bootleg Tapes Volume 12 – Bob Dylan 1965 – 1966 The Cutting Edge – Six albums, sixty bucks, and worth double that if just for the fourth, the twenty song etymology of “Like A Rolling Stone” – ALBUM OF THE WEEK– A
Obviously, we’re all waiting for Bob Dylan’s greatest year in popular music every passing moment write large in one place. One complaint: could they have found a less cutting edge title than “Cutting Edge” if they tried?
Written in 2009, I would end up reviewing every decade and will repost the lot eventually. The problem, as always is what can you say that hasn’t been sad. And the answer is nothing… this gets easier when you reach the 1980s, but here in the 1960s, it is like reviewing the ten commandments.
