It’s Alright, Ma I’m Only Bleeding with Lyrics

 

 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

intentions; so

credit where credit is due,

or two;

Have you?

Incredibly example of both lyrical and instrumental brilliance.

About Epoch Awareness. Writer, J.D. Hughes

I write. Do you read? I write. I write words: Carefully and consistently, and chaotically, from the deep pulsar unison of the still mind (or the violent undoing of the still mind); Sometimes I resemble Robert Zimmerman (my hair uncut, my mind uncut, all unregulated thoughts, wind haphazard along a pale american brow too). Sometimes, Sometimes words are fragments of paragraphs and you find them eschew in and from time, and with care, in the long ribbon fabric or one single unsealed cosmic spiral, and then they burn wild like black-holes ( birthing voids built the milky way); Still there are words so heavy and pure that they anchor fast the mind to the mere memory of their syllables in the quiet echoes, in and around, the deep violet sea of the questioning readers inner-mind. I write sentences: In strands, like silk, or links in chains, or diamond arranged compressed carbon coal electrons, or the frequency of more intimately woven atoms; In intricate quilts of reason, and warmly glowing sheets of cotton fiction that cover you at 4 am on a Sunday (with the sun bright and a bastard, soon to be hitting your face from the slats in the window shades); I write paragraphs, and as such I consider it a duty of the considerate and conflicted human to consider their conflicts human, and consider: In airports, in churches, in penthouses in Hollywood (who overlook the homeless mountains and the slanting fogs of debilitated industries, and the vacuum seduction, and lifeless Angel City in the Wests bleached blonde sand, and lids of imagery cover sad vacant eyes), in station wagons, in deep wood temples in Maine, near the Androscoginn River, where the Native Americans caught silver fish and eternity lived off communal tides to the distant ocean, which is now more black than the sky from our waste, now wrought with the studied three-headed-demon-fish, (but still a holy place Maine, it glows); In any meaningful medium, known or noun, imaginable is mans only true duty. It is mans only Deity (For what was with God, what was God? The Word was, In The Beginning). To chase the promise that reality and truth are not yet only relative devices, and leaving these scriptures: On brains, and on paper, and on papyrus, and old plaster, and on the backs of old Polaroids (once someone did at least), the thin skin on wet hands who ru
