                                                   THE BOB DYLAN APPRECIATION THREAD





2012 will mark 50 years since Bob Dylan began his extraordinary music career. Countless albums and awards, the voice of a generation. After all those years he is still touring the world and recording albums. This thread is for all fans to discuss his music. Just as I did with the Bruce Springsteen thread, I will be posting tracks from albums in chronological order.



Bob Dylan (Released 1962)

Side one
 
1. "You're No Good"  
2. "Talkin' New York"  
3. "In My Time of Dyin'"  
4. "Man of Constant Sorrow"  
5. "Fixin' to Die"    
6. "Pretty Peggy-O"    
7. "Highway 51 Blues"  

Side two
 
1. "Gospel Plow"  
2. "Baby, Let Me Follow You Down"    
3. "House of the Risin' Sun"  
4. "Freight Train Blues"    
5. "Song to Woody"  
6. "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean"  


The very first album released by Columbia records by Bob Dylan. Featuring 13 songs. Only two were Dylan originals, the rest were old folk songs.

Dylan is a songwriter's songwriter. I have been a fan for many years and he has inspired me as a songwriter as well. Bringing It All Back Home is a fantastic album SK! This is a true story. I saw Bob Dylan and Paul Simon together back in 99 or 2000. I had never seen Dylan before and I was listening to him sing and I told the guy next to me" I am glad I know his songs because I cannot understand a word he is singing."  The guy looks at me and says " This is Dylan on a good night. "  I thought "Man, I would hate to see him on a bad night then." It was a fun show though.

Quote
In his autobiography Chronicles, Dylan described the kinship he felt with the route that supplied the title of his sixth album: "Highway 61, the main thoroughfare of the country blues, begins about where I began. I always felt like I'd started on it, always had been on it and could go anywhere, even down in to the deep Delta country. It was the same road, full of the same contradictions, the same one-horse towns, the same spiritual ancestors ... It was my place in the universe, always felt like it was in my blood."

Blonde On Blonde (Released 1966)

Quote
Blonde on Blonde is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on May 16, 1966 on Columbia Records. Blonde on Blonde completed the trilogy of rock albums that Dylan recorded in 1965 and 1966, starting with Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited. Critics often rank Blonde on Blonde as one of the greatest albums of all time. Combining the expertise of Nashville session musicians with a modernist literary sensibility, the album's songs have been described as operating on a grand scale musically, while featuring lyrics one critic called "a unique blend of the visionary and the colloquial". It was one of the first double albums in rock music.
