Stoked. Haven’t heard a Dylan album that I dislike, although I’ve never heard Dylan & the Dead.

Love how Bob keeps laughing as he sings "False Prophet"

(one thing I don't love so much is the album cover - it's very "swing trend c. 1998")

Not as big a fan of False Prophet as the other two, but I could see warming up to it. Love the sound.

is that a sink? the way it's glowing makes me think it's a jukebox.

Love that "Murder Most Foul" gets its own whole disc on the CD version.

So the whole story about Murder having been recorded years ago was a red herring? Somehow quite excited by this one despite the fact nothing since 'Love & Theft' has really grabbed my interest.

Can Bob please reach out to some new graphic designers please? Maybe someone that didn't just download the "My First Fonts!" software?

xp It still could have been recorded "a while back" (whatever that means).

Not sure why that didn't work, but supposed to be a link to a video of "If Lovin' is Believing" by Billy "The Kid" Emerson from 1954. I've seen it passed around elsewhere for it's, uh, similarities to Bob's new song.

You don't have to be coy about any "uh, similarities" to 20th century Americana. The last two decades of Dylan's career are pretty much a cut up of those influences, he's not in any way ashamed of it or trying to hide it.

That reads much more aggressively than I meant it, sorry.

Dylan has been stealing other people's songs for sixty years now.

Duke, Saturday, 9 May 2020 11:46 (two months ago) link

I mean, there's like 3 blues riffs the genre is built around slight variations on formulas and other songs

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Saturday, 9 May 2020 13:30 (two months ago) link

I didn't mean any ill-will. He has stolen many of his songs, so I'm not surprised to hear this is a rip off of "If Lovin' is Believing" by Billy Emerson. Keep on going, Bob - I like it.

Duke, Saturday, 9 May 2020 20:56 (two months ago) link

I just heard the news about Little Richard and I’m so grieved. He was my shining star and guiding light back when I was only a little boy. His was the original spirit that moved me to do everything I would do.

Oh I know, it's nothing new, but I do get a kick out of hearing the sources when they get identified. I didn't share that in a "gotcha Bobby" way, but rather further listening...

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Wednesday, 13 May 2020 20:43 (one month ago) link

I'd like to hear a collection like the one of Presley's sources, The King's Record Collection, and The Music Never Stopped: Roots of the Grateful Dead. Or has somebody already done this re BD?

I know I've seen playlists like that... "the roots of Dylan," or whatever.

listening to a few tracks off Tempest to compare

his voice is so much better on this, I'm convinced the quitting smoking theory has to be true it's the only thing that makes sense

his voice is so thin on Tempest

Just read that he quit smoking for Nashville Skyline, which presumably helped him with that Lefty Frizzell croon, but than started again at some point after, although he was somewhat mysterious about the latter, as is his wont.

Barry "Fatha" Hines (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 24 June 2020 13:15 (two weeks ago) link

Although even the first assertion was probably an, um, smokescreen as well. Also found that he apparently wrote this as well:

I have to quit smoking But I can't quit smoking I love to smoke Almost as much As I love to love

assert (MatthewK), Monday, 29 June 2020 18:01 (one week ago) link

i think i like this album a lot but it's def not very musically adventurous.

akm, Monday, 29 June 2020 18:03 (one week ago) link

I guess I have two responses to that assessment. One is just the question of the extent to which you're supposed to consider roots music on its adventurousness. Or, conversely, whether it's more apt to think about the ways in which it situates itself in relation to its genre precedents. And I think Bob pushes the boundaries with that on this album.

My second one is that I hear things on this album that I think come from him having immersed himself in those Great American Songbook albums he did and I think those reaches are, actually, musically adventurous.

timellison, Monday, 29 June 2020 18:34 (one week ago) link

Not sure if this was already noted or not, but Olof Bjorner's site now has more in-depth session info up for this album. Turns out Fiona did not play any piano on the record:

6 Bob Dylan (harmonica).

2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 Matt Chamberlain (drums).

5 Matt Chamberlain (percussion).

4 Charlie Sexton (background vocals).

10 Donnie Herron (violin).

It's funny that Fiona's new album and "Murder Most Foul" dropped the same weekend and nobody had any idea she played on both.

Chris L, Thursday, 2 July 2020 14:45 (one week ago) link

The “Twelve years old, they put me in a suit...” verse in “Key West” is so great, and comes out of nowhere. I wonder if it’s a fragment of something he had sitting around, and decided to work it in (by tagging it with “...down in Key West”)?

Pat McGroin (morrisp), Friday, 3 July 2020 17:19 (one week ago) link

I have a theory (based on nothing) that verse is about discovering music as a kid.

Chris L, Friday, 3 July 2020 18:39 (one week ago) link

I think it's about when he got his first suit.

When he grew out of it, they gave it to a vagabond. Admittedly, a small vagabond.

He also mentioned “Memphis in June” in another song (“Tight Connection to My Heart”). There should be a list of specific things referenced more than once in Dylan songs.

It’s going to be one of the modern standards much as ‘Make You Feel My Love’ has become.
