One of my fav Bob songs

No idea what a literal interpretation of the words are but beautiful imagery and great singing as the music chugs along behind the singer

Love Minus Zero no Limit

Dylan was a gateway to music for me. In my early teens I was only casually interested in music: a bit of AC/DC, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ice-T, Roxette and Guns 'n' Roses (choices I still stand by but probably in descending order). At 15 for reasons I can't remember, I told my parents I'd like to listen to Bob Dylan. I remember a couple of winter evenings sitting by the open fire as my dad played highlights from Dylan's catalogue in chronological order (he had all the 60s albums and most up until about Infidels but stopped buying rock in the 80s). The one's I liked went on a couple of TDK AD 100 tapes (imaginatively titled '100 Minutes of Bob Dylan' and 'Another 100 Minutes of Bob Dylan').

 

I was an immediate fan and from Dylan it was easy to follow the map across to the Beatles, Stones and Hendrix, back to blues, and on to many things.

 

My favourite Dylan albums are the mid-60s triumvirate Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde (in reverse order). Piss poor sampling of a long career, but I just love those ones the most.

Massively important beyond the music to so many people - including me. So many accolades, hero worship, hatred, etc - nothing much add to all that, really, that doesn't sound wanky. Still.

I love Its all over now, baby blue - he sings a stripped down version in a hotel room on the 67 uk tour in the movie don't look back. Also in it is the embarrassingly lame Donovan - 'England's Dylan'. Great movie.

Dylan had that incredible and instinctive ability to translate or lift a personal experience, a lost love, into something prophetic and deeply revealing of his time. He stopped receiving dictation from the zeitgeist sometime in the 70s and just declined into a more human talent - but for a time he was extraordinary.

Happy birthday, bob.

More great singing and song writing from Bob

Criticism of Dylan's singing is both true and false

Among the ingredients that make a singer great is the way pauses are used to emphasise or add emotion

to songs and draw the listener into the song and it's meaning or just into the writers use of imagery to emphasise or make a point

Not only is Bob the master at it but also paved the way for great singer songwriters to ply their trade and reach an audience that appreciates the nuances that go into lifting a song up another level of meaning

There are millions of people around the world that can sing well or very we'll but only a relative handful that can use their voice to make the universal emotions we all have in common come alive to someone sitting in a room or car lost in a world of music and singing

Blind Willie McTell is a wonderful song, never understood why it wasn't put on an album.

Just bought a cd called Dylan's Gospel recorded in LA in 1969 by a group of back up singers put together by Lou Adler a famous record producer at the time

Gospel soul singing to raise the hairs on the back of your neck

If the local church sounded like this I'd be there every week

The songs aren't the usual ones that could be associated with singing the praise of The Lord but with voices like this the road to Damascus looks inviting enough to get on

Plenty of info on the net but well worth checking out

That's the same distinction for a genuine comedian. There are plenty of us who can spin off a series of jokes. But comic timing is everything! Also re his vocal style you have a choice like it and listen or don't. I am on the side of the millions that like it.
