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

  1. #11
    Blood On The Tracks is my fav, mainly 'cuz it's the first Dylan album that came out after I was mature enough to really get it. The recent release of the entire "New York sessions" for the album is something I'd long hoped for…so many performance gems among the previously unreleased takes.

    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.
    sound spot on to me Al :). I think we prefer when a song is more disonant or has some kind of edginess over say the more popular songs of an artist. i also struggle to listen to like a rolling stone all the way thru, it is just too monotonous. where as lay lady lay, while also a radio song, has some kind of ugliness to the progression.

    re it's alright ma, i tried to learn that one and do a rendition of my own but i scrapped the project as i just was not sure where to begin. this is why dylan's guitar playing is so great however to me, for the way his notes on this song progress, you can tell he is not struggling at all. it is just his natural finger picking rythym. that is innate, you cannot really teach that. that is just sitting in a room and practicing, that is just playing gigs and practicing during the gig, growing. his voice, well...maybe not so much, but his lyrics and playing are what i find most captivating.

    Yeah I've got all of those on chart, (also forgot "It Ain't Me Babe"), and while I can usually figure out a nice basic strumming progression for anything, some of his stuff still baffles me, gotta have just the right amount of beer in me.....

    I have the box of *Dylan's '66 UK shows, and this song is almost always a spellbinding highlight. Once he gets in the groove it seems like the song could keep going of it's own accord for hours. Visions Of Johanna is often like that too.

    Hello

    I've been holding back on this thread - but now - Desolation Row . . .



    One night about 15 years ago I woke up about 03.00 or so - for unknown reason I started to think about the lyrics of Desolation Row - it took quite a while - finally I could sleep again - next morning I checked - and there were only two lines that I had not remembered.

    Do not ask me which two lines - they were in a row - somehow that verse was vague at the time.

    Few years back he was in Finland - I went to see him - and low&behold - he played it. Some folks around me were quite astounded as I was singing along thru the whole song . . .


    Early Dylan up to . . . maybe Slow Train Coming - with few not-so inbetween - and then later Time Out Of Mind - naturally I have all of them - how could I not have one - even some bootlegs from England in summer 74 - but not these new "collections" with million versions of studio rehearsals etc.

    But yes! DYLAN !!!


    p.s. CosmicArkie - thanks for referring what I have said . . . wish me luck - there might be a new something in horizon . . .
    First good guitar - GUILD Duane Eddy 400 - I was 3rd owner - still regret letting it go 25 years ago - used to have Artist Award and Starfire - no regrets here.
    Present guitars - all bought new - F50R 1975 - F512 1977 - F212CSB 1979 - OM-240CE 2018 - Schecter Startocaster
    Bought secondhand - B30SB fretless - RED Songbird - White Songbird - S-60D - D-125 - Gibson 3/4-size acoustic 1957 - Carmelo Gonzales nylon string - old Levin Lute

    Hwy 61 Revisited was the one that did it for me as a teenager. Still does it for me, too.

    Also, forget about Lay Lady Lay & listen to the rest of Nashville Skyline. My second favorite Dylan album, with Bob's newfound country voice which was so surprising, and the sunburst J-200 he's holding on the cover that had me drooling for days!

    Can't get much better than having Michael Bloomfield & Norman Blake as your session guys, huh?

    Now there's a name that probably doesn't ring a bell for too many folks. Had a couple of his albums (before selling every LP a few years ago). I believe one was called Like A Seed.

    Anyway, thanks Al, for that little blast from the past.
