Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde was, is and always will be his defining work. Blood on The Tracks and Highway 61 will always be fondly remembered by the faithful, for their up-tempo down-beated-ness, something that only Dylan managed to achieve, and there are better songs written by Dylan that are not on this album - 'Simple Twist of Fate', 'All Along the Watchtower' and 'Like a Rolling Stone' spring immediately to mind.
Blonde On Blonde is remarkable in its creativity, each song interwoven with the next. It has attitude, it has zaniness, it has the remarkable portrait of Sad Eyed Lady, and the wonderfully sad circus of 'I Want You' - 'the guilty undertaker', 'the lonesome organ-grinder', and 'drunken politician'. Wonderful honky-tonk in 'Most likely you'll go your way and I'll go mine' follows the tragic 'Just Like a Woman', and the wild, weird and wonderful Leopard skin Pillbox Hat.
Dylan has had other superb albums - Time out of Mind was superb only insofar as it was the amazing blip on the life support machine, when he had long since flat-lined. Highway 61 and Blood on the Tracks I've already mentioned. It doesn't seem to have generated any major resurgence, and his live act for its 'niceness' remains as unremarkable as the 'hood' phase that seemed to upset everyone so.
I suppose in some ways, we all thought that the music that was changed by the bike accident of '66 could have returned through the heart attack of '97, but while a new Bob Dylan emerged from each life-threatening incident, he would never write another Blonde on Blonde. If you have a collection, you must have Dylan; if you have Dylan, you must have Blonde on Blonde.

While a number of my comtemporaries liked Dylan and played his records to me, it was this album that got me hooked on him. That happened because someone that I was rooming with in 1966/67 kept playing it. The following year 1967/68, when I moved to another location to go University, I had withdrawal symptoms, so I went out and bought my own copy.

Dylan lyrics, if taken literally often do not quite make sense, but then seem to communicate at a subconsious poetic level while still leaving you wondering (even after 40 years) if you understood. That is partly why many of these songs endure. Another reason is that coupled with the lyrics, this album is with an electric band, (which - on the whole - I prefer to the acoustic 'folk' ones) and the playing on this album is just superb.

Which is my favourite track varies a bit depending on my mood. The only track I have never liked particularly is Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands - mainly because it is rather long. This occupies a whole side on vinyl, so I just played that side less frequently.

When I started buying CD's, this was one of the first CD's I bought (actually in a 3CD box set with John Wesley Harding and Self Portrait). However, I 'lent' it to my daughter when she went of to university, and after a while I realised the meaning of a permanent loan and so had to buy another copy.

Postscript: SACD version.
I was going to add a separate review of the SACD version, but it seems Amazon somehow realized I had already written a review of the CD version. The music is the same - so the 5 star rating remains.

I bought the 5.

Everyone of a certain age remembers the double album with its gatefold sleeve of a slightly blurred Dylan in double-buttoned winter coat and scarf, and side 4 exclusively devoted to the marvellously melancholic Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands, perfect on repeat-play for hung-over Sunday mornings, unhurried and timeless, ending with a harmonica solo that slowly and statuesquely faded away.
The CD version was disappointingly butchered with many of the running times noticeably truncated to fit onto a single disc. Just Like A Woman unbelievably faded out instead of ending, and Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands sacrilegiously lost a vital 30 seconds at its conclusion.
When the Bob Dylan Reissue Series reached Blonde On Blonde these anomalies were thankfully minimized, and the total playing time on this edition is upped to 73.03 (compared to 71.31 on the earlier edition), and the overall sound has been significantly upgraded, making this finally worthy of replacing the rather worn vinyl copy in your collection.
This album, recorded between January and March 1966 in Nashville, is after all one of Bob Dylan's most vital, the one about which he said, "The closest I ever got to the sound I hear in my mind was on individual bands in the Blonde On Blonde album. It's that thin, that wild mercury sound. It's metallic and bright gold, with whatever that conjures up. That's my particular sound."

Seldom out of the top 5 of those never-ending `All Time Best Album' polls, Dylan's 1966 opus is, by any criteria, nothing short of a masterpiece. Originally a double album, one of rock music's first, on CD the seamless flow of the 14 tracks only enhances the listening pleasure. Sony's latest issue of this all-time classic has benefited from a new remix from the original masters by Steve Berkowitz, making this the best audio version of the album available (the original CDs were pressed from very low quality off-master copies, and notoriously had brutal edits cutting short many of the songs), although what is Blonde On Blonde's standout track for many people, the Neal Cassady-inspired `Visions Of Johanna', still suffers from out-of-tune lead guitar breaks towards the end (although these have been watered-down and are not as prominent as on other releases). For the recording of this album, Dylan relocated from his favoured New York studios to Nashville, after the earlier sessions had proven problematic - only `One Of Us Must Know' from New York made the final cut - and had the benefit of the top session men of the day at his disposal, such as Charlie McCoy and Kenny Buttrey, although `One Of Us...' has a stunning piano track from Paul Griffin that makes one lament the fact that Dylan left the keyboardist behind when he left for Tennessee for the first session on Valentine's Day 1966. Of the songs themselves, there is nothing remotely approaching a `protest' song here - if one discounts Dylan protesting at not getting any from the lady in `Fourth Time Around' - and anyone seeking `Masters Of War' Dylan is on the wrong record, but all the numbers here are dressed in the beautiful kaleidoscopic wordplay of prime mid-sixties Dylan.Read more ›
