From this distance it's hard to imagine the shock this must have caused when it first came out. Dylan's first four albums (all big sellers) had been entirely acoustic; just Bob on vocals, guitar and harmonica. This opens with the pounding, very plugged-in 'rap' Subterranean Homesick Blues and all at once with this ultimate crossover song, intelligent rock, artistic rock was born. The opening scene of Dylan's documentary the same year (Don't Look Back) also used this song to make it the first song to have what we would now call a video. Dylan's lyrics here are perfect, half-way between the impassioned beliefs of his folk protests and the beautiful nonsense of much of Blonde on Blonde.
Love Minus Zero/ No Limit is still for me the perfect love song, and I challenge you not to be moved as the album slips out of the bluesy-rock boisterousness to the more thoughtful atmosphere of pared-down voice and guitar. It is this second half that really makes the album. It's as if Dylan has just been entertaining you for half-an-hour, sits down and says "Now. Let me show you what I can do." There can be few songs in his canon more bitter than It's Alright Ma, and few more tender than It's All Over Now, Baby Blue, both made from the simplest of ingredients.

It took me quite some time to get `into' Dylan. From my early teens I was buying as many albums as I could afford but it wasn't till after I'd passed twenty that I broke my duck with him (`Blood On The Tracks'). I wasn't sure about his voice (`of sand and glue' as Bowie memorably described it), and that bloody harmonica got on my nerves. Even then I didn't rush out and add to my collection (Neil Young remained my main `dirty hippy secret' in those days of punk), but just bought the odd one every now and then. `Bringing It All' I've probably owned for less than ten years but well, it's the one, isn't it?

There's lots of albums I love more, there's even a couple of Dylan's that I listen to more, but this is the one, isn't it? This is the one where he truly became `Bob Dylan' - nobody's spokesman but his own, constrained only by the limits of his own imagination. Just listen to the songs! - they're almost ridiculously brilliant. You want social commentary? (though from a more cynical, worldly point-of -view than previously), then try `Subterranean Homesick Blues' or `It's Alright Ma'. You want to hear a beautiful tune? Then try `She Belongs To Me' or `Love Minus Zero' or Mr Tambourine Man'. You want to hear him having a good sneer? (and, let's face it, nobody sneers as well as His Bobness), then try `Maggie's Farm' or `It's All Over Now, Baby Blue'. Even the `fillers', those songs which aren't really supposed to be up to much, they're all really great as well! (That's `Outlaw Blues', `On The Road Again' and `Bob Dylan's 115th Dream' in case you hadn't already guessed).

BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME is Dylan's fifth album, released in 1965. Commonly regarded as one of the most influential albums in rock history, BIABH is one of Dylan's most famous albums, and also one of his best.

By 1965, Bob Dylan had released four albums in the space of three years. The first was a traditional folk album with only two original songs. This was the proving grounds, for the market Dylan aiming for focused mostly on traditional material, not new song-writing The second was Dylan the song-writer, and proved to be one of the 1960s' most important albums. The third, Times They Are, featured Dylan the protest singer. The fourth was Another Side, which moved away from the protest-folk sing to a more surreal method of songwriting. For the protest-movement, it appeared for certain they were about to lose Dylan as a member of the movement.

When Dylan released BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME, he made it quite clear that not only was he distancing himself from the whole protest-folk movement, he was plugging in and turning on. While in ensuing years this decision has become the stuff of rock and roll legend and mythology, it should be noted this was a tremendously risky direction at the time. If Dylan didn't have the material to back his decision, he could fall flat on his face and his career could be over. Dylan was making a gamble that he could transition to a new fanbase - a very difficult move to pull off for any pop star. Fortunately, Dylan not only had the songs to back his decision, he crafted some of the most enduring music in rock history.

Dylan went electric on this album, but only for half of it, leaving the second half as acoustic.

This was the very first Dylan album I ever bough back in 1977 when I had begun to latch onto his genius. This is the album where controversially Dylan moved away from the acoustic folk of his first four recordings and towards that of rock with the Hawks in tow (Later to become The Band).This was the birth of Folk Rock & Intelligant rock song writing. There are still traces of his acoustic past with Mr Tambourene Man and Gates of Eden, but it is the wonderful songs such as Subterranean Homesick Blues, Maggies Farm, Love Minus Zero/No Limit etc that really nail this recording. There is still some of his wit and humor, present on earlier recordings, with the wonderful epic 'Bob Dylans 115th Dream' (Whatever he was on at this time worked wonders for his creative imagination). Most will cite Blood On The Tracks as the finest recording by Dylan ever, and I for one would find it hard to disagree, but for me there are at least 3 essential Dylan recordings and they are Bringing It All Back Home / Desire / Blood On The Tracks. Each are so good for different reasons, that I feel it is impossible to name any one of them as his best. If you are a Dylan Fan then I am talking to the converted and you will be familiar with this masterpiece, but if you are new to his work but don't know where to begin, try Bringing It All Back Home!
