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

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The greatest live recording in rock & roll history was--officially, at least--buried in the vaults of Columbia Records for more than a quarter of a century. But no more: Live 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert has surfaced on two discs mixed and mastered from three-track source tapes that put the myriad pirated recordings to shame. More important, Live 1966 documents a momentous artistic showdown between a wilful, inflamed and utterly fearless performer and his headstrong core following. The Dylan of the mid 1960s had made the leap from socially conscious voice of his generation to surrealistic electric poet, a transformation that was met with contempt by a vocal element of his audience. The most telling moment of the recording centres on the stand-off: A folk zealot in the audience shouts, "Judas!" earning cheers from the contentious crowd. Dylan responds by snarling, "I don't believe you. You're a liar," then turns to his group, the Hawks (soon to become the Band), and, as the intro to "Like a Rolling Stone" takes shape, commands, "Play loud!" A crucial moment and, time has demonstrated, the correct call. --Steven Stolder

The most popular bootleg of all time - the historical Albert Hall concert (although it was recorded in Manchester - don't ask).

YES... This is that famous gig where someone shouts "JUDAS!" and bob replies to the heckles with "I don't believe you! You're a liar!".

That was of course the audience reaction to Bob plugging in his Fender Telecaster, and putting the acoustic down.

The first CD is bob's solo set. Just him and the audience. There is blissful silence in the milliseconds between his unmistakable voicec and guitar chords, with a massive roar of approval from the crowd after each of these wonderful folk classics.

CD2 is where the backing band join him. Although the songs receive a long round of applause, this often grows into an 'off! off! off!' chant, which gets ever faster until Bob and the band begin the next song.

This combined with the extremely clear sound (restored from the original master tapes) makes you feel like you're there.

Maybe some of you were! We all wish we were - let's face it.

But would you have booed? Or would you have cheered?

Eitherway, the music is fantastic - and this gig is a defining moment in Music history. Footage from the recent film "no direction home" shows dylan leaving the stage and muttering about why they (the crowd) pay to come see him in concert if only to heckle and boo all night long? Why indeed? Because times they are indeed a-changing... much like Dylan himself.

"Thankeew" Bob Dylan squaks as the house comes down on the Manchester Free Trade Hall. Not the Albert Hall as the printers wrongly said. Probably the finest live performance of any song as just finished. Bob Dylan and the Hawks(The Band) had wailed out Like A Rolling stone with so much velocity, even the guy who shouted "Judas" must have been tapping his foot. This comes at the end of a sensational set. The first half acoustic, the second very much not. The album begins with She Belongs To Me, Fourth Time Around, Visions Of Johanna and Its All Over Now, Baby Blue. They are all well received by the taut audience. Three songs of sublime harmonica playing follow; Desolation Row, Just Like A Woman and Mr Tambourine Man. The second half begins and Bob looks drunk and stoned. He knows fine well what hes about to get. Slow hand claps and booing from the off. They sweep through Tell Me Momma, I Dont Believe You, baby Let Me Follow U Down, Just Like Tom Thumbs Bliues and Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat before being drowned out by slow hand clapping. One Too Many Mornings ( a surprise in the electric set) and Ballad Of A Thin Man follow before the creme de la creme of the album: Like A Rolling Stone. "Judas" is heard while the band warm up, to this Bob replies, "you're a liar" and then either "you're a F****** liar" or "play F****** loud". Whatever it is he says, the band play a devastating seven minutes and the intensity with which Bob pronouces: "Didnt You?" is frightening. A superb album from the archieve that is Bob Dylan's career.

Life affirming stuff this: the artefact of Dylan's defining moment, the apex of his career. The acoustic set is delicate, moving, breathtaking and utterly captivating, the electric set is euphoric, a victory over the crowd which dissent and disrupt throughout. The seven-minute 'Like A Rolling Stone' is probably the highlight, but there isn't a bad track here! One of Dylan's greatest records, with first-rate packaging and superb sound quality. Buy this!!

In the mid-60s Bob Dylan began the transition from folk to rock n' roll. But, the transition wasn't smooth. Folk zealots had jealously acclaimed Dylan as their saviour in the Folk vs. Rock war and were in no mood to let Dylan pursue his underlying rock vision. Dylan was constrained and becoming progressively more frustrated. From late 1965 to mid-1966 Dylan went on tour and split his repertoire: the traditional mixed with the new. The folk fans were not impressed: this was not the Dylan that they had paid to see.
"Live 1966" (recorded at the Manchester Free Trade Hall) is a remarkable recording which captures the mood perfectly. Dylan is disillusioned, but has now broken free from the clutches of the folk industry. This is made abundantly clear. The concert begins with the traditional sound and the fans listen and respectfully applaud. The last acoustic song is 'Mr Tambourine man': the most rock-like of the acoustic set. Is Dylan hinting to the fans what is coming next?
The electric half crashes open with "Tell me, momma". Dylan starts to play the acoustic 'I don't believe you' and then reveals: "it used to go like that, now it goes like this..." By 'Baby, let me follow you down' the folk fans are vocally expressing their disgust. Each subsequent song receives an increasingly hostile response and in parallel Dylan's lyrics become more contemptuous, rough and unrefined. The result is the gutsiest live performance in rock n' roll history. Never has (or will) the 'Ballad of the thin man' be so appropriate: Dylan sneers AT the audience "you know that something is happening but you don't know what it is..." And they don't.
A defining moment.
