Biography

BOB DYLAN Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Dylan Store

BEWARE !!!
this version is a very cheap bootleg version with unreleased tracks(-do not pay more than GBP 7-8 !!!!
the original 9 tracks are copies from the original columbia-cbs cd and the bonus tracks are copies from several vinyl releases in bad quality
the official release on cd is long out of print and was never re-released
there will be a new official release -comes only with the original album classics from dylan

Format: Audio CD
This 1973 release is the thirteenth release from icon Bob Dylan. Made up of offcuts from earlier albums, it was cobbled together and released by Columbia just after Dylan had signed to Asylum and was preparing to release Planet Waves. As such there is little coherence to the album, with oddments collected from sessions for albums as far back as the Self Portrait sessions. But it is still a decent album and well worth the getting. It features Dylan's covers of `Fool such as I', and `Big Yellow Taxi', which he adapts to his style superbly. His ragged rendition of `Fool Such As I' really packs a punch and brings a tear to the eye. It might lack in thematic coherence, but it does deliver in feeling and depth, and I often wonder why some of these tracks were dropped, especially when much weaker tracks appeared on the earlier releases that they were originally recorded for.

The album has had a troubled release history on CD. Not released in the USA on CD, it is usually sold under the name `A Fool Such As I' in Europe, and can often be found in a form with 13 bonus tracks. The first 12 bonuses are live recordings featuring Dylan and Johnny Cash, and are well worth getting hold of. The last is a version of Yesterday, with George Harrison, and though it pains me to say it as I love Dylan and Harrison, it's awful. Sound quality is usually OK for the main album, no more than acceptable for the bonuses.

Whilst accepting that this is not one of Dylan's greatest albums, in my opinion it is not that bad, and I have given it five stars for its rarity, and thus its desirability, value. Some tracks are excellent. I particularly like Lily of the West, The Ballad of Ira Hayes, Mr. Bojangles and, yes, Spanish is the Loving Tongue. I was fortunate enough to get this for £24 in excellent condition. I'd certainly have been prepared to pay more. If the price puts you off, keep looking in charity shops - you never know, it might just turn up!

The above review is for the vinyl album and Amazon will not allow you to write a second review for an album of the same name, even though it is a completely different product. So, the following is my review for the Bob Dylan CD 'A Fool Such As I', which comes as a Digipack. I thought this would be the same album, but on CD, but in fact it is completely different and an absolute gem. Not only does it contain all nine songs from the original vinyl album (originally called simply 'Dylan' and later 'A Fool Such As I'), but it also contains 12 tracks from the Dylan/Cash Nashville sessions in 1969, together with 'Yesterday' performed by Dylan and George Harrison. For any Dylan fan who doesn't already have a bootleg of the Dylan/Cash sessions this is an absolute must have. I cannot recommend this too highly.

Unfairly maligned. Hard to resist the exuberance of 'Sara Jane'. In fact, most of it is great. Treat it as a set of outtakes rather than a serious "artistic work", and you will get a lot of fun out of hearing this.

Format: Audio CD
Almost universally disparaged and dismissed as the worst ever Dylan album, this 1973 collection of covers recorded in 1969/70 during the Self Portrait and New Morning sessions is actually not at all bad. Bob's voice is perhaps not the best for some of these tunes, but on the whole, this album hangs together with a fair degree of coherence. It's well performed and arranged, the main problems really being Bob's ability to hold the tunes, and the fact that sometimes he and his backing singers seem to be not entirely in the same key. Still, I was very pleasantly surprised at how good this album is. And, I would say, certainly not the worst Dylan album by a long stretch.

Quite why the album is so expensive here is beyond my meager ken unless the good man himself intends to sign, bless and deliver it. You can and should buy it for a-least 1/10th of this price.
As for a review, my understanding is that Dylan recorded this album to fulfill a record contract which was set to pay him big bucks and which in typically contrary attitude he produced as all cover versions and with minimum creative artistic outlay. CBS might have been bemused or even angered by his dismissiveness towards them, for they were expecting... a "Bob Dylan" experience. But that should not preclude your interest in it. This is by no means Dylan's worst - let's not blindly eulogise, he has turned out some excruciating material. I am, however, rather fond of this one and it fits rather well into his early '70's cannon.
If you are new to Dyl' go for a folky album like Freewheelin, a classic album like Blonde on Blonde, or a compilation like Greatest Hits 2, Biograph, or my favourite: Bootleg Series 1-3. If you know something about the great man and are wondering whether this is worth bothering with, go for it. It's a relaxed album that is great because it provides an insight into some of the music that he liked at the time of the recording.
If you can find this album for less than ten English pounds, have a pop - it's worth a go to expand your knowledge of the genius that is Bob Dylan. This is where the early 70's and Bob Dylan get together and it's an enjoyable exercise - not deep, just good fun, and you're allowed to have fun with Dylan you know! Have a punt...
