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

Format: Audio CD
One good thing about writing reviews is the fact that I am often compelled to pick up things I have ignored for a long time. When this album was released, I snatched it up, listened to it a few times, and proceeded to forget about it for some reason. Being less of a Dylan addict at the time, the fact that this album consisted basically of folk music accompanied by impeccable acoustic guitar did not strike me as very significant, and I was slightly disappointed that these songs were all covers. I was not used to this kind of Dylan music, and for that reason I believe this CD failed to captivate me at the time. Listening to it again now, I am amazed by this album's greatness. Acoustic guitar, harmonica, and Dylan's uniquely raspy vocal musings-that's really all Dylan ever needed, and Good As I Been To You is proof that what was true in the 1960s was just as true in the 1990s and will be true until Dylan's greatness is snatched away from this earth.
These songs are all mesmerizing, but Hard Times deserves special attention, as Dylan pours his heart and soul into the song. Arthur McBride is another incredible story-telling saga. Tomorrow Night particularly shows off Dylan's harmonica-playing, and the song's familiarity provides an opening for those seeking to appreciate this impressive album and proves once again that Dylan can in fact sing a love song with great feeling. Don't think that these tracks are all slow and somber anthems, though; a quick listen at Step It Up and Go will show you that Dylan can infuse tons of energy into folk music. Good As I Been To You is Dylan at his most natural, and one can only sit back and revel in the story-telling prowess of one of music's most influential and legendary performers.

This was the first Dylan album that I bought when it was released. Till then I has been playing catch up. Waiting for it with bated breath I was sooo disappointed when I discovered it was an album of cover versions. Released during a period of supposed writer's block I didn't hold out much hope. What I found was a gem. Dylan playing songs he loves and nothing else. Great versions of "Jim Jones" "Arthur McBride" "Canadee IO" and "Hard Times" illustrating how effective Dylan's harrassed voice can be when he want's it to be. Great sounding acoustic guitar, great harmonica solos and a great lesson, to the beginner in tradional tunes that if investigated opens up a ocean of talent that nudged and cajoled the master song smith Dylan into the master craftsman of a song writer that he is today. Everyone should behold this album as a thing of beauty. God bless the products of writers block.

This album blows me away. Best Dylan ever? Very arguably so. It's straight-up, no frills, pure folk, with just Dylan, his guitar, and sometimes harmonica. For those who like their folk synth-free and natural, for those who like their Dylan unplugged and going for it, this one is a GEM. The more you listen to it, the better it gets, too!

My first reaction on listening to this was `what have we got here?'. There is some rough singing and some rough guitar playing, albeit both highly skilled. Even Bob Dylan's photo on the front cover looks rough! These are a collection of folk and blues songs from another era. Most are not familiar to me, except `Tomorrow Night' which was recorded by the fine singer-guitarist Lonnie Johnson. Many of the songs are story telling (a style repeated on the equally good follow up `World Gone Wrong'). These songs sound like they could have been recorded in one of those old drinking taverns way back then. When Bob Dylan sings of hard times they sound hard! It is a very enjoyable listen which improves with each playing. The lyrics missing from the CD can be obtained from websites. Don't be put off by the absent fifth star, my four stars are equivalent to others five stars!

I must admit that the majority of my Bob Dylan collection consists of his earlier work covering the first twenty years of his career and some of the Bootleg Volumes that have been released. I was initially put off his more contemporary work as I felt his vocals lacked the inimitable style that had characterised his earlier output. However, recently I have started to explore some of his albums from the 90s a period of his that I was not totally familiar with. I must admit that `Good As I Been To You' was not one of my first choices, in part because the tracks were not original Dylan compositions. However, when I discovered that it was his first solo acoustic album since Another Side Of Bob Dylan in 1964 I decided it might offer more than I had originally thought. I am really pleased I bought this album, its a beautiful mix of traditional folk songs supplemented by Dylan's unique vocals plus his acoustic guitar and harmonica playing; all the ingredients needed for a really good distinctive album. Of the tracks themselves it would be hard to pick out some as better than the rest as they all have first-rate qualities. The slow thoughtful pace of Tomorrow Night and Arthur McBride (tracks 9 & 10) are complemented by the fast paced Step It Up And Go (track 8) and the jaunty Froggie Went A Courtin (track 13) creating an album to be listened to and enjoyed again and again.
