Guessing it's been at least five years since I dropped the needle on, Blonde On Blonde.


I am listening to Blonde on Blonde as I type. ;) Yeah, Jack of Hearts is wonderful, even though it falls out of the album's mood. My fave is Simple Twist of Faith.

Never been a fan of Dylan, didn't really bother to delve into his discography before, thought of him as a little too overblown. But recently I tried to listen to Highway 61 Revisited and got instantly hooked. Is he better then Townes Van Zandt? Tough question.

According to Steve Earle, no, but the again Steve may be a little biased. ;) I love Townes, but in terms of stylistic and thematic scope and innovation, I don't think there can be much of an argument.

I am a huge Townes fan. He's the greatest country musician ever, even better than Hank Williams, for all I care, but where Dylan is miles ahead of him is the album production. Highway 61 Revisited or Blood On Tracks sound so fresh, whereas most of Townes' records sound so outdated and overdone, overproduced. So I usually listen only to his live albums, Live at the Old Quarter in particular.

I don't think Bob comes even close to the sincerity Townes poured into his songs. Though I am changing my opinion about Bob. Still you have to scratch the cool to get to the real stuff in Dylan. That's my conclusion so far.

I still dream about that Steve Shelley produced Townes record. Why didn't it happen. :(

Anyway, sorry for spamming this thread.

I am listening to 16 Horsepower - Secret South

I like Blonde on Blonde but it's far from my favorite Bob material. Some other day I will attempt delving into his religious phase a bit. Wonder why is it so disliked.

Now listening: Mark Hollis s/t

Hell of a shuffle going on....

"Senior (Tales of Yankee Power)" by Dylan (which I can't find in its original form on youtube at all--but check it out if you don't know it already. It's a good one.)

Slow Train Coming is "good," as in it isn't shit.

I think that describes most of his post-accident output, barring his last masterpiece, John Wesley Warding.

The one "Senior" is on, Street Legal, is "good." New Morning, Planet Waves, Desire, even Infidels. The eighties mostly sucked, but Oh Mercy at the end of the decade was good, musically at least. The two acoustic albums World Gone Wrong and Good As I've Been to You are good, I think. And he seems to be putting out respectable work nowadays, but for some reason I can't be bothered. Maybe I need the passage of time? Maybe in 30 years Modern Times will rank among his finest?

Which is just about everything up to his accident. Almost pure gold. A few daft songs, mostly when he's trying to be funny. But take the best songs off his debut through the accident and holy shit.

His early period is so amazing that the later "good" albums really aren't that good. The magic's gone.

Putting on Dylan just now is the first time I've done so in years. And until I wrote all this, it absolutely slipped my mind that I've listened to every damn thing he's made, most of it many times, except his last four or five albums. So am I fan or not? Weird.

The last time I saw Blixa live it was so bad that I think i can't listen to EN for a while now.
He and Christian Fennesz have a nice lookalike contest going on though.

not entirely true, as I was listening to it this morning. Now it's my recording of Slint. In 30 minutes it's live music from Dans Dans at the Psych Fest! yes Dans Dans is a band, not a typo :)
