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

4.0 out of 5 stars Songs from the inconsistent decade 6 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
During the 1980s Bob Dylan's work was consistent only for its inconsistency. This decade saw Dylan move from his second and third dabble with Born Again Christianity [Saved 1980, Shot of Love 1981] at its outset, to the first of his collaborations with Daniel Lanois [Oh Mercy 1989]. It was a ten year period during which we were treated to the full range of Dylan's repetoire; some classy and memorable contributions to his lifework; some interesting if flawed material and sometimes merely the abject and banal.

Both Infidels [1983]and Oh Mercy are quality Dylan. both of these contributions have more than stood the test of time. On the other hand Knocked out Loaded [1986] and Down in the Groove [1988] are the first indications that his talent as a lyricist was perhaps drying up. While it is sometimes claimed that Knocked Out Loaded is the Self Portrait of the nineteen eighties much of its content is considerably more flawed. Maybe Empire Burlesque [1985] is the best example of where Dylan was in the 1980s, although interesting lyrically its production is defective. The omission of some of the songs that we later knew were available['Blind Willie McTell','Angelina' and 'Tell Me' to mention but three]remains a cardinal sin. Bob's musical contribution to this decade is completed by two 'live' performances: Real Live [1984] and Dylan and the Dead [1989] both of which are largely irrelevent unless either you were there as a witness, or a completist.

So what of 'The Very Best of Bob Dylan's 80's'? Firstly, its title is a misnoma. Not all of the content of this album was released during the nineteen-eighties. Indeed, of the fourteen tracks on this album only ten were actually released in that decade [with two not officially seeing the light of day in this version until 2008!].

3.0 out of 5 stars Dylan Revised 30 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is quite a nice selection of tracks but hardly the Dylan that created such turkeys in the 80's. Rather than keeping to the released content of his studio releases this rewrites history by concentrating on material not heard until the first of 'The Bootleg Series' was released in 1991 - if my memory serves me well. In one respect this proves that Dylan was still writing good songs - the much feted 'Blind Willie McTell' for instance. However the fact that he chose not to release them is proof of his poor judgement in putting albums together.

3.0 out of 5 stars 80's Dylan 14 Oct 2010
By P Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This playlist collection rounds up fourteen songs from a solid, though often uneven era in Bob Dylan's career. While he did release some stinkers like Knocked Out Loaded and Down In The Groove in the 80's he released one of his best albums, Oh Mercy, an underrated effort, Empire Burlesque, and the strong Infidels. Though the album cheats a bit by including a couple outtakes that were on his Bootleg Series, you get some outstanding tracks like the sprawling "Jokerman", the pretty "Every Grain Of Sand" and the searing "Everything is Broken". It would have great to see the rare and superb "Band Of The Hand", Mr. Dylan's title track to the 1986 movie that I don't believe has ever been released on cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Dylan--The One and Only! 18 Nov 2010
By S. D. Klinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These songs follow his conversion to belief in Christ. It may have seemed that he had painted himself into a corner subject matter wise with that decision. One listen to these songs makes it clear that whatever his beliefs, his songwriting became richer, rather than more predictable. Nothing stale about these wonderful songs. The songs speak for themselves!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Eclectic Mix of Dylan Songs 19 Nov 2010
By BeatleEd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a nice eclectic mix of Dylan songs from the 80's. There's hits and good deep album cuts so someone putting it together did their homework. It would be perfect for the new or casual fan.

Everything seems to have a nice fresh sound to it so I guess they're not full of BS when they say the album is remastered. I don't care for the packaging. I know it's environmentally friendly recycled materials so the Tree Huggers will love it. It's just a bit flimsy like it was made out of a cereal box.

The packaging is no big deal really but I would have given it 5 stars if not for it. Don't let that be a deal breaker for you though as the price is right on this very nice Dylan Collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars good collection 24 Dec 2010
By just saying - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For the 1980's this is a good collection. I have lots of Dylan CD's but this one gets a lot of play time, as it includes some great songs I haven't heard a thousand times before, and its also good to put on when the casual non-fan is in the room.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprise for the cost. 2 Nov 2010
By Linda Sharp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For the simple cover and cost, it was a surprise when I found there was one song on there that I did not have, "Every Grain of Sand," is simply beautiful. I think it could have been one of his 80 changes, he went through, although it was magnificent and produced more of Dylan at his best. It's just a good CD for the price and if you are like me, you think you have every song he ever recorded, which I obviously do not. Actually, I didn't have "Golden Loom" either.
Also recommended are the "Basement Tapes." Oh wow, that one is something else. If I am not mistaken, and someone will correct me, if so, I think he and "The Band" recorded those, so they have different solos. Want to be entertained in a good way, buy both CDS. None I ever bought were bad. I recently saw him in concert and his voice is older, but he is still awesome. Always will be. Bob Dylan, the legend is still real and holds his on, on any stage.
