I recently acquired a collection of old Dylan vinyls including:
Blonde On Blonde, Highway 61 Revisited, Bringing It All Back Home, and Desire.
I’ve been searching for a long time and after long some great listening sessions I have one come to re-realize some old favorites, and discovered some new ones. One that really hit me from: Binging It All Back Home
Truly, each of his albums posses an entirely different aspect of his ability, and when one takes the time to absorb the lyrics, the album art content, and the arrangements of the instrumentals over the years, its easy to see why he is such an internationally known phenomenon.
Taking the best from those he met on the road, Dylan’s folk repertoire grew from a very early age. The styles of his genre matched with the vibrant and diverse conceptions sparked of the 1960s counter culture, all gave Bob Dylan a vast range and potency in his art. His knowledge of history, literature, philosophy, and religion, give the body of his work an attention to the figures and events of their generation, while simultaneously pitting them against the contributions of the entirety of those generations past, and those imagined potentials that never could come to be.
It sounds like flattery, and I guess it is; but honestly, when looking at the contributions of an artist, one must realize and give credit to the mechanics and influences that manifest themselves within their works.
Consider judging the merits of a man:
Right or wrong or understood,
value sits at the heart of
credit where credit is due,
did a thing
Incredibly example of both lyrical and instrumental brilliance.
