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
After Bob`s notorious motorcycle nightmare, the exact details of which are still somewhat murky, the chameleon of `folk` returned to the musical fold with one of the
strangest and strongest albums not only of his career but of anybody`s career. It doesn`t sound particularly strange or unusual, at least in hindsight, but it sure did then. It was a breath of fresh air too, with a set of songs so confidently composed and played that it seemed, then as now, one of the key albums of the past fifty years.
I believe the period of Dylan`s career between the classic early & mid-60s records and the shatteringly superlative masterpiece that was Blood On The Tracks has too often been underrated. Not only did we get this almost unclassifiable album, but also the flawed yet fascinating Self Portrait, the optimistic, downright sunny New Morning, and the perennially overlooked, stunningly good Planet Waves.
One or two previous reviewers have given excellent blow-by-blow accounts of JWH,
so I won`t repeat what you can read there, and happily direct you to their fine reviews. This is a personal response to this most personal of records.
From the moment I first heard Dylan, it wasn`t only the words - such words! - that gripped me, or even the music itself. What I loved then and love still is the textures he finds in his recordings. Another Side Of...sounds nothing like New Morning. Desire is texturally rich, as is the denser, darker Street-Legal (another massively undervalued album). As for the more recent `Indian Summer` releases such as Time Out Of Mind and Love & Theft, both wonderful, they sound completely different from each other. It`s not simply down to production, but texture too.
JWH is a pared down record - it sounds like a field recording, in fact - but it too has texture.

Written in that mysterious period after the motorcycle accident, this album can be classed as Dylans last great masterpiece until 'Blood on the Tracks' almost 7 years later. The sound is of a Dylan far more at ease with himself after the choas and confusion of the 'Blonde on Blonde' period. The quality of the album is often overshadowed by 'All along the watchtower' which grew out of the album after the famous (and phenomenaly brilliant) Hendrix cover.
However songs like 'Dear Landlord', As i went out one Morning' and the brilliant 'Ballad of Frankie lee and Judas Priest' are fine examples as to why there is no rating system that can do justice to Dylan at his best.
How many stars? All the ones in the sky mate!

Format: Audio CD
Of all Bob Dylan albums, "John Wesley Harding" was the most eagerly awaited. It was his first record put out following his enforced temporary retirement brought about by the motorcycle accident which had occurred in July 1966 and it`s story is fascinating. His previous album, the historic double, "Blonde On Blonde" was a highly produced collection on which he was accompanied by a large electric ensemble of mostly top Nashville studio musicians perfecting what Dylan himself had dubbed his `wild mercury sound'. The songs were lyrically intricate affairs, often lengthy performances (five, seven minutes ; "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" clocking in at just under eleven!). The question was : what would his new work sound like ? The answer was, nothing like "Blonde On Blonde".

Just prior to his accident, Dylan had completed a physically and mentally exhausting world tour which had been full of controversy (acoustic versus electric battle, the infamous "Judas!" cry). He was at a peak of commercial and creative success, but his personal state is well-documented to have been less than perfect. "John Wesley Harding" turned out to be the sound of a man who had seemed to have saved himself from the brink of some kind of oblivion. A man who had regained some degree of control.

Dylan had not actually been inactive during the hiatus. Much `home' recording had been done with the musicians who would become The Band, and this work, the legendary "Basement Tapes" can now been seen as the obvious link between "Blonde On Blonde" and this new album. "The Basement Tapes" would not however be officially released until 1975. "John Wesley Harding" was the result of three studio sessions in Nashville with regular producer Bob Johnston and engineer Charlie Bragg.

His first album for nearly two years has Bob going back to basics with some sparse backing that suits the album well. His guitar playing is fantastic and the lyrics are some of his best. Stand out tracks include the classic "All along the watchtower," the title track and the superb, menacing "As I went out one morning,". Not to mention the pedal steel influenced love song "I'll be your baby tonight," which opened the gate for his next album- the monumental classic "Nashville Skyline," Also worth a mention is Charlie McCoy's superb bass playing. Overall, a hugely enjoyable album that's up there with his best.

Format: Audio CD
In the middle of the psychedelic revolution of 1967, Dylan released one of the most shocking albums of his career. Rather than pursuing the whole Summer of Love atmosphere, Dylan turns in a country-rock album that explores enigmatic characters and sounds like nothing before it or released after it. Listening to JWH sounds like listening to songs and stories from the 19th century. The music is simple, and Dylan displays and economy of lyrics, streamlining them for maximum effect. No longer long winding songs, the words Dylan writes for JWH are both simple, to go with the music, but have multiple layers reaching far beyond the simple nature of the music itself, creating a rather beautiful dichotomy between word and music. Like most Dylan albums, JWH requires numerous listens to fully appreciate the art and craft that went into this masterful album. The lyrics are wonderfully complex, invoking the age and spirit of the 19th century, yet still very concise and to the point.

Dylan once again proved no one could touch him in the 1960s. Dylan creates a masterpiece based in rural folklore and a stunning cast of characters who become ineligibly imprinted in your mind. This album is so far away from 1967 it seems unreal, and would prove to be quite a shock for listeners following Dylan's every move. The music has a country flavour, but make no mistake: this is not country music.

What this music is, I can't really say, as nothing has really even come close to it. JOHN WESLEY HARDING became an important album in the country rock revolution, and that is perhaps the best way to describe it. However, to only call it Country Rock would be a disservice to this spectacular album. NASHVILLE SKYLINE is straight country and no mistake.
