5.0 out of 5 stars An Undeservedly Much-Maligned Album, 1 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Fool Such As I (Audio CD)
Whilst accepting that this is not one of Dylan's greatest albums, in my opinion it is not that bad, and I have given it five stars for its rarity, and thus its desirability, value. Some tracks are excellent. I particularly like Lily of the West, The Ballad of Ira Hayes, Mr. Bojangles and, yes, Spanish is the Loving Tongue. I was fortunate enough to get this for £24 in excellent condition. I'd certainly have been prepared to pay more. If the price puts you off, keep looking in charity shops - you never know, it might just turn up!

The above review is for the vinyl album and Amazon will not allow you to write a second review for an album of the same name, even though it is a completely different product. So, the following is my review for the Bob Dylan CD 'A Fool Such As I', which comes as a Digipack. I thought this would be the same album, but on CD, but in fact it is completely different and an absolute gem. Not only does it contain all nine songs from the original vinyl album (originally called simply 'Dylan' and later 'A Fool Such As I'), but it also contains 12 tracks from the Dylan/Cash Nashville sessions in 1969, together with 'Yesterday' performed by Dylan and George Harrison. For any Dylan fan who doesn't already have a bootleg of the Dylan/Cash sessions this is an absolute must have. I cannot recommend this too highly.

I think this CD might be a (very well done) bootleg, in which case, hold on to it!

Mr. D. Bain says:
It is indeed a bootleg. The original cd version contains the same 9 tracks as the original vinyl album, it was released in Europe to commemorate Dylan's 30 years on the Columbia label. It was pulled from sale soon afterwards guarenteeing that it would become very collectable and would change hands for silly prices.
