5.0 out of 5 stars A story for everybody, 26 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Desire (Audio CD)
This is the Dylan album i always come back to and am always touched by. It's a long way from the electric speed freak era of 'Highway 61' and 'Blonde on Blonde' but the stories in the songs are just as poignant if not more so. 'Sara' is one of his most beautiful songs and even more amazing when you find out it was recorded in one take with his estranged wife Sara actually watching him through the recording studio window as he sang it! It momentarily healed the heartache as described in blood on the tracks....if only for a little while. 'Isis' is quirky and charming, 'Oh Sister' is a warm sweeping ballad and 'Joey' is another fine example of Dylan's story telling. The album is also graced with the beautiful voice of Emmylou Harris on several tracks and the spine tingling excellence of Scarlet Rivera on violin. This is one of Dylan's best works in an overwhelming back catalgogue. So if you don't know where to start give this one a go. It won't disappoint you.

Actually for what it's worth, I think you'll find that Joey wasn't even written by Dylan at all but solely by Jacques Levy.

Good for you for mentioning Emmylou Harris in your review of this album. In my opinion her contribution enhances what is one of Bob Dylann's best. Yours is the only review I have seen in which this wonderful artist is mentioned,
