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

* Ace is proud to present a double CD paying tribute to Theme Time Radio Hour - hosted by Bob Dylan. The first series aired last year and a new series is currently under way in the USA.

* For those that are new to the show, each programme lasts an hour and has a different theme each week, for example Drink or Mother. Each track is introduced by Dylan with his dry humour, eclectic interest and vast musical knowledge. His voice does not appear on this CD, just tracks selected from the shows. It can be regarded as the best introduction to music ever.

* This is the only officially-authorised release - and is compiled by the show's producer Eddie Gorodetsky and Ace's own Roger Armstrong.

* A 2CD set featuring 50 tracks, representing the 50 shows of the first series of radio shows. The tracklisting reflects Dylan's wide taste and ranges from Billie Holiday and George Jones, through Aretha Franklin to the Clash and the White Stripes.

* The luxury package contains a 2CD jewel case, with an accompanying 48-page full colour book, all in a cardboard slipcase. The sleeve notes include a track-by-track commentary by some of the world's great music writers including Barney Hoskyns, Colin Escott, Billy Vera and Fred Dellar. Each track, no matter how obscure, is illustrated with a sleeve, label shot or photo of the artist.

Whilst I have no argument with the music on this album, it's all great stuff, if you are hoping to hear the great man introducing each track, then think again "he's NOT there" and this is a great disappointment. I had expected from the album description that it would contain those wonderful insights that Bob Dylan is so good at when introducing the tracks, that's why I can only give it three stars.

I bought this for my fiance. We occasionally had the great pleasure of driving home from somewhere and catching Theme Time Radio Hour With Your Host Bob Dylan- and the comments made by Bob Dylan were part of that great pleasure. So I sought to find recordings of the show which included the actual host. Entitled "Theme Time Radio Hour With Your Host Bob Dylan" told me what I needed to know- that Bob would indeed be making the day of my dearest when he listened.
However.
No.
"With Your Host Bob Dylan" is not part of this recording.

Not taking away from the genius of the material at all, it is magnificent and totally enjoyable. I just wish it actually included "Your Host Bob Dylan" as advertised on the cover.
Alas, a product misrepresented by its title if ever one existed.
So disappointed to have to write this.

Just a quick review here. Although the music on here is fantastic and as eclectic as you could hope for I was under the impression (maybe I missed something) that the tracks would include the introductions by the man himslef. However, the intros come in a separate booklet and are NOT on the CD. As I said, a great CD but just be warned that this is not the actual shows themselves. Cheers!

Format: Audio CD
Quite frankly, this is the best reissue of 2008, already. It shows that not only has Dylan been the cultural commentator of the world, but that he is also the cultural curator of some amazing music. It is almost as if this is the music that has even shaped his own recordings. It is not that far from Louis Jordan to "Open The Door, Homer" on the Basement Tapes, or the early blues on this album in relation to Love & Theft. But, isn't all pop/rock music Love & Theft ?

If I was Prime Minister or President I would make Ace Records the national musical curator, and let them pick and choose any recording that they wanted for any project they wanted. They get it right time and time again, and this set is no exception, in fact this release even ups their game. You get two CDs containing 50 tracks and a beautiful 48 page accompanying booklet with a commentary for each track and illustrations galore. All housed in a neat card cover.

But, hang on, let's start at the beginning. Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour (or TTRH for short), the radio show, is everything you would expect of that eclectic, eccentric and electric troubadour. If you don't know it, though surely you do, each programme is an hour long and revolves around a specific theme (radio, jail, Christmas, luck, drink or whatever) with DJ Bob introducing each song in his sandpaper whisper, giving a brief and incisive commentary on the track or perhaps a pertinent quote or maybe a whimsical digression. The music played is hugely diverse, stretching back to the beginning of the 20th Century right up to last week. It covers all bases: country, blues, R&B, jazz, reggae, soul, rockabilly, punk, swing, any tributary that feeds into the great flowing meandering river of popular music. Each show is a delight and makes for fascinating listening whether you're a Dylan fan or not (though perhaps slightly more fascinating if you fall into the former category).

Show by show, then, the listener is being treated to nothing less than an alternative history of popular music. The themed approach prevents it from being a po-faced academic and ploddingly chronological exercise, rooting it instead in the realities of lived human experience, whether noble or mean, gleeful or grim.

Ace Records could hardly go wrong with this aesthetically. Whether it sells or not is anyone's guess. OK, we'll all have our individual misgivings about some of the 50 songs chosen here, but they're just quibbles. The cumulative effect of hearing so many great original voices and players is mindboggling. The sound fidelity is so much better than the Theme Time Radio Show MPEGs that most of us have been listening to. Rhythms, styles and subject matter are as diverse as anyone could wish for. For all the diversity, however, all the tracks share a common humanity and integrity, which seems to be the main point of Bob's radio show in the first place.

I can't imagine anyone being disappointed at shelling out money for this. One thing I've liked about TTRH is its balance: male/female, black/white, 1930s/40s, 20s/60s and so on. We've all been taken aback by Dylan's knowledge, and obvious love, of Caribbean and Hispanic music, the latter of which, I would like to see better represented on the collection. But this is overwhelmingly a celebration of American vernacular music. It's also an affirmation that, for all its inventions, its movies, its self-marketing, vernacular music has always been America's best expression of itself.
