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

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob at his best 28 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
I simply can't understand why the other reviewers don't like this as much as me! For me Desire was the album that brought Dylan back to his true form after so many 'not quite as good as we knew he could be' releases, and it came from this tour. The energy of the performances is fantastic and I've always loved the mix of musicians he had for the Desire album. So if you liked Desire and want to hear what some of his other songs would have sounded like had they been from that period instead then have a listen to this. This is Bob at his most passionate as he snarls out such classics as 'Lonesome death of Hattie Carrol' with a fast pace and all the guts of 'Hurricane'. Certainly one of my top five Dylan releases of all time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a listen 1 April 2011
Format:Audio CD
The continuing anthology of Bob Dylan's live performances continues here with Volume 5 of his Bootleg Series. It is a companion to his also live Hard Rain album of 1976, as both were recorded as part of his Rolling Thunder Revue tour.

All Dylan's live recordings are fundamentally interesting and this Live 1975 contribution is a worthwhile addition to other outings. There is a strength and vibrancy to Dylan's voice that shows just how good a singer he was in his prime. The support band compliments his performances; highlights being songs like Isis, Oh Sister, One More Cup of Coffee and Knockin' on Heaven's door.

The numerous solo outings are also of very high quality, with the level of intimacy being enhanced by Dylan's exquisitely elaborate intonations of the lyrics in versions of Love Minus Zero/No Limit, Tangled up in Blue and Mr. Tambourine Man.

If I have a minor quibble, it would be that I found the audience interjections at the beginning of some songs irritating and should have been removed. However, that is minor and doesn't detract from what is a hugely enjoyable album. Very good value at the price as well.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
After a long career which has famously been `Bootlegged' many times, Bob Dylan has now decided to do what the fans have wanted all along and started to release previously archived material - unreleased demos, live recordings, stuff that never made it onto albums etc - in a series of official Bootleg albums. The first three volumes were a good mixture of alternative versions and live numbers that never made it to albums and included many important and interesting recordings, such as the original Blood on the Tracks sessions. The fourth volume was the infamous Manchester concert from 1966, recorded at a time when Dylan was accused of being a traitor to the folk movement for his electric album Highway 61. So far so good, these have been recordings well worth owning, especially the visceral '66 concert. But for volume 5, a live recording from the 1975 Rolling Thunder review I feel as though material is now being released for the sake of it and to cash in on avid fans (such as myself) who will buy anything released by his Bobness.

It's not to say it's a bad record, it's just that there's nothing new here. The previous bootlegs added to the sum total of original Dylan in my collection. Here we just get another live recording of stuff we've heard a thousand times before. And there's nothing to set it apart, none of the vigour of the Before the Flood concerts or the originality and reinterpretation of Dylan at Budokan. It's almost like another greatest hits compilation. 3 stars for the feeling of cashing in by Bob.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Dylan epoch 30 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love this period of Dylan's career. Great band (loose and lively) and adventurous reworking of songs old and new. I also recommend "Hard Rain" (the album) as well, though many people dislike it (??!?!?!?).

5.0 out of 5 stars Released... 19 Feb 2012
By Gav
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best Dylan live releases. Has this been bootlegged to death? Yes. But this release certainly has the best quality audio available and the performances together with the booklet are excellent. Dylan is still fantastic vocally here and the band together with Mick Ronson and the band of merry men/women create versions of Dylan classics that still take me for surprise. Some may not like these alterations, but I think they're wonderful and dare I say even fun to listen to. When he's not grabbing your heart he's making you laugh on this double record, please play loud!
