After Bob`s notorious motorcycle nightmare, the exact details of which are still somewhat murky, the chameleon of `folk` returned to the musical fold with one of the
strangest and strongest albums not only of his career but of anybody`s career. It doesn`t sound particularly strange or unusual, at least in hindsight, but it sure did then. It was a breath of fresh air too, with a set of songs so confidently composed and played that it seemed, then as now, one of the key albums of the past fifty years.
I believe the period of Dylan`s career between the classic early & mid-60s records and the shatteringly superlative masterpiece that was Blood On The Tracks has too often been underrated. Not only did we get this almost unclassifiable album, but also the flawed yet fascinating Self Portrait, the optimistic, downright sunny New Morning, and the perennially overlooked, stunningly good Planet Waves.
One or two previous reviewers have given excellent blow-by-blow accounts of JWH,
so I won`t repeat what you can read there, and happily direct you to their fine reviews. This is a personal response to this most personal of records.
From the moment I first heard Dylan, it wasn`t only the words - such words! - that gripped me, or even the music itself. What I loved then and love still is the textures he finds in his recordings. Another Side Of...sounds nothing like New Morning. Desire is texturally rich, as is the denser, darker Street-Legal (another massively undervalued album). As for the more recent `Indian Summer` releases such as Time Out Of Mind and Love & Theft, both wonderful, they sound completely different from each other. It`s not simply down to production, but texture too.
JWH is a pared down record - it sounds like a field recording, in fact - but it too has texture.

How do you follow a trio of the best rock albums in history, a ground-breaking world tour and a neck-breaking motorcycle accident? And how do deal with a music market which has, at the same time, Pet Sounds, Are You Experienced and Sgt Pepper......

Answer: you release an album of material so different, so low key and so laid-back that people have to really listen and think about it: John Wesley Harding.

The album has parables, stark tales, allusions to Bob's state of mind and his journey of self-discovery. It's fascinating, not just because it sounds nothing like Blonde on Blonde or the Basement Tapes, but because the music and lyrics are much tighter and simpler that most of Bob's previous work.

Instrumentation is sparse, just piano/guitar, bass and drums, with pedal steel on the last two tracks, but fits the music perfectly. My favourite track is All Along the Watchtower but Drifter's Escape runs a close second.

I you love Dylan's work you already have this. The CD reproduces the warm and friendly sound of the LP well.

His first album for nearly two years has Bob going back to basics with some sparse backing that suits the album well. His guitar playing is fantastic and the lyrics are some of his best. Stand out tracks include the classic "All along the watchtower," the title track and the superb, menacing "As I went out one morning,". Not to mention the pedal steel influenced love song "I'll be your baby tonight," which opened the gate for his next album- the monumental classic "Nashville Skyline," Also worth a mention is Charlie McCoy's superb bass playing. Overall, a hugely enjoyable album that's up there with his best.

This a good album with many songs not given the prominence they deserve. Includes All along the Watchtower as well as a Dylan moral tale in The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest . Many biblical references which Dylanologists conclude are early signs of his Christian conversion but I am not sure.
This is an album I reach for I want something that is predictably good.

This 1967 album is the eighth studio release from icon Bob Dylan. I have to say that when I first heard it I didn't think that much of it, with no tracks really grabbing my attention. I have recently rediscovered the album through Hendrix's cover of `All Along the Watchtower' and the Faces `Wicked Messenger', and relistening to it to hear the originals of these rock classics I have found much to enjoy and it has really grown on me.

Following up 1966's masterpiece, `Blonde on Blonde', was always going to be a tough job. Dylan once again decided to change direction and counfound he critics by starting to move away from the rock sound he had previously been working with into a more country style with a return to acoustic guitar. This would find its apotheosis with the country album `Nashville Skyline', released in 1969. As evidenced by the `Basement Tapes', recorded with the Band at about the same time during Dylan's convalescence from his bike accident, Dylan was becoming more interested in roots music and American folk, as he was when he first started out but now with the experience of a successful recording career behind him. This resulted in an album of tracks that quietly tell stories with simple acoustic melodies. Dylan's lyrics had become more flamboyant on his previous three releases, but here, while the imagery is still present, it is restrained, concise and to the point. It's a coherent, understated, beautiful album that deserves attention. 4 stars.
