Thread: Dylan's Bringing It all Back Home...

    Dylan's Bringing It all Back Home...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bringing_It_All_Back_Home

    This is the one Dylan album I own, actually a CD. I listen to it for days in a row while driving to and fro to work, about 2-3 times per year.
    There are several songs I just find incredible achievements:

    Subterranean Homesick Blues
    Maggie's Farm
    It's Alright Ma

    And that song about Ahab etc, hilarious, forget its name.

    It was recorded 2 full years before I was born. I probably like Freewheelin' Bob Dylan better, but not by much.

    My favorite period for Dylan by far. Those albums never get old for me.

    Blood on the tracks is his masterpiece

    In my opinion he’s never done better

    „Bob Dylan‘s 115th Dream“. That song is hilarious indeed. „Boys, forget the whale!“, so many lines in the song that still crack me up every time.. „It‘s Alright Ma“... Basically the first Rap song ever with words like bullets that hit you right in the brains.. Great album. I like Highway 61 a tiny bit better because every song on it is a masterpiece, but i can totally see why this was Hunter Thompsons favourite album.

    I always loved and respected his work as a songwriter. Not many better than him. It was only in the last 10 years or so I really grew to love and respect his guitar playing abilities as well. There's been a lot of great ones, at least I think so like John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Bill Morrissey and Harry Chapin just to name a few. But Mr. Dylan ranks right up there in my humble opinion.

    I watched Towne's Be Here to Love me movie, and he talks about learning to play guitar better, with more sophistication, like Bob Dylan. So he knew of Dylan's interesting prowess on the acoustic as well. North Country Girl is a wicked example of his finger picking ability. it is brilliant.

    If I ever knew it I'd forgotten but I noticed yesterday Kenny Rankin and even founding Lovin' Spoonful members John Sebastian and Steve Boone are listed as session men on Bringin' It All Back.
    And personally even though I have some of the later stuff, I still like this early stuff the best.

    It's just not on Bringin' It All Back Home, but it is kinda eerie sometimes how similar Clay's and my tastes are, his 3 faves are right up there in my Dylan top 10, plus that tune, then throw on "Ballad of A Thin Man" and "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall"
    Surprising to some, I rate "I Want You" and "Lay Lady Lay" higher than "Like A Rolling Stone" and "Rainy Day Women", although that happened later in life.
    In I probably like "Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat" better than "Rainy Day Women"....@Cougar: I'd call Blonde on Blonde" the last one before he got all polished for Nashville Skyline
    Whoopsie, forgot John Wesley Hardin, and does anybody here know BTW that Hendrix also covered "The Drifter's Escape" besides "All Along the Watchtower"?
    2 examples of covers I prefer to the originals, that doesn't happen often.
