Biography

BOB DYLAN Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Dylan Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The brooding Bob Dylan of the 1966 live collection in the Dylan bootleg series gave way to an even more hooded character on the second live bootleg album from 1974. Which makes the jump back to a younger Dylan in this set all the more jarring. Here is Dylan as an eager-to-please 23 year old with nothing between him and his worshippers but a guitar, a harmonica, and, for four songs, his lover, Joan Baez. In marked contrast to the acerbic electric Dylan of the mid-'60s and the tight-lipped living legend of the mid-'70s, here is Dylan as entertainer. Joking and bantering with the crowd, Dylan deals up some favorites ("The Times They Are A-Changin'," "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right"), but is already shedding his earnest folkie persona; imagine another artist a mere two years into his career declining to perform a hit on the scale of "Blowin' in the Wind." But Dylan was moving fast. Having completed the last all-acoustic collection of his early years three months before the Philharmonic concert, he would record the half-electric/half-acoustic Bringing It All Back Home three months later. Three of the four acoustic songs from that album are presented here, as are a handful of then-unreleased songs, including "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues," "If You Gotta Go, Go Now" (which was soon given a rock arrangement), and a protest-period remnant, "Who Killed Davey Moore?" Had Concert at the Philharmonic Hall appeared the year it was recorded, it would been seen as a respite for folk fans to catch their collective breath before Dylan reappeared in his rock & roll Rimbaud guise. Heard for the first time decades later, it's simply a testament of his gifts as a showman and songwriter. --Steven Stolder

Product Description

The next installment in the Dylan Bootleg Series is a Halloween night show recorded 10/31/64 at NYC's Philharmonic Hall and originally intended for release as a live album. Dylan biographer Robert Shelton calls this show "one of his greatest concerts," and it's certainly got its share of firsts and highlights, including the only known live version of Spanish Harlem Incident ; the premiere of the songs Gates of Eden and If You Gotta Go, Go Now , and four duets with Joan Baez. With a 52-page book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A key snapshot of Dylan before he went electric June 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. 6, a bootleg that has been around for decades, is a Halloween show from the Philharmonic Hall in New York City. One of the most important shows in Dylan's early career, this show gave quite an overview at the time from Dylan's ever-growing song book, including new, bizaare songs that would show up within a few months on Dylan's fifth LP, BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME. While much has been made of the later electric performance of the 1960s, it is here that you can see how good Dylan really was with just a guitar, a harmonica, and the signing girlfriend. Covering such a broad overview, Dylan shows all the budding facets of his art up to this time, from the protest songs (including ones that never made the studio records), the more introspective material, and the radical new direction Dylan was pursuing with the three songs from the unreleased (and unrecorded, for that mater) fifth album, BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME. He proves him a very masterful solo performer. If you like Joan Baez, you greatly enjoy the four songs she performs. If you don't like Baez, this won't win you over.
This 1964 concert, the first all acoustic performance (barring MTV UNPLUGGED, which also has a band) to enter Bob Dylan's discography, captures Dylan at a peak period as he was making a transitional move into rock and roll. Historically significant, funny, and overall Dylan, this installment of the Bootleg Series show a new side of early Dylan, and as VoodooLord7 points out, quite a contrast from the 1966 Manchester concert. What is so startling about this concert is how Dylan comes across as giddy, young, and, overall, a Minnesota boy just honoured to be playing at such a distinguished venue.

Much has been made through the years about Bob Dylan's early electric concerts -- more than simply legendary, they can almost be called mythical. Consequently, his earlier acoustic concerts are very often downplayed and under celebrated. On this, the first all-acoustic live album to enter Dylan's massive official canon, it is overwhelmingly clear just how vibrant and simply great these performances were; their immense historical importance is also on awe-inspiring display. This '64 show at New York's Philharmonic Hall was Dylan's big show of the year -- a Halloween show in which Columbia Records was putting its new star on display. It turned out to be one of the most important shows in Dylan's career -- and maybe even one of the best.
Another thing that stands out is how different these performances were from all subsequent Dylan performances. Dylan seems positively jovial throughout the show -- giggling, making jokes, introducing songs, playing with and teasing his audience. This is a stark contrast to the cynical, aloof Dylan that was on display in Don't Look Back, only a handful of months after this concert was recorded. It will also be a genuine shock to anyone familiar only with Dylan's current concerts, in which he talks to the audience only in order to introduce his band -- if, indeed, he does so at all. There are several reasons for this. Unbeknownst to the audience, Dylan's most recent acoustic album -- the then-three-months-old Another Side of Bob Dylan -- was to be his last. Dylan was only a few months away at this point from recording his first mostly-electric album, Bringing It All Back Home; soon after, he would both bring the electricity to his live shows and abandon the protest movement to focus on personal narratives and surreal esoterica.

5.0 out of 5 stars less is so much more! March 30, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's not that I didn't like the last Bootleg from 1975, it's just that this show from '64 showcases Dylan at the peak of his acoustic genius. This is before he went electric and started messing with the music and lyrics of his songs when he played them live. His voice is top form throughout the 19 song set, which features 4 amazing duets with Joan Baez. Aside from those 4 songs, the rest of the set is just Bob with his guitar and harmonica. The newly remastered sound is a wonder to behold. It truly feels like Dylan is standing right in front of you while the disc plays. The setlist features a bunch of my personal favorites, but to me the highlight is "It's allright ma". When the line where he sings "Even the president of the united states sometimes must have to stand naked" comes, it gave me chills, only because this show was recorded less than a year after Kennedy was killed, and the U.S. was on the verge of a full scale was in Vietnam. Bob is also unusually chatty with the crowd, who after every song in the set gave out thunderous cheers, especially after Dylan and Baez end her appearance with a great "It aint me babe". My advice to any fans is simply go out and buy this double disc right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars It;s Life and Life Only October 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
For me Dylan was always there but I didn't get it. I mean Johnny Cash told me that Bob Dyaln was a great song writer, But I just never got what all the Dylan fuss was about.

Then I check out this cd.

Now I get it. Man do I get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blast from the past May 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
An absolute dream album. Like discovering a long-lost friend, or a prehistoric hunter frozen in the alps. If you know all the lyrics (and most of the chords) to Dylan's early stuff, really his first 4 albums, you must buy this album, even if you haven't listened to "Another Side of Bob Dylan" in 30 years.
What strikes me most, on an entirely personal, sentimental level, is the response of the crowd to certain lines and jokes. The way the crowd responds with guffaws to the mention of "Martha and the Vandellas."
If I'm not mistaken, the crowd is actually trying to sing-along with "Who Killed Davey Moore?" I know from memory that in 1964 people would bring their banjo to a Dylan concert (I actually saw someone with their banjo at a Dylan concert as late as November 1965).
I love his completely flippant, irreverent introductions to "Gates of Eden" and "Davey Moore" - which must have completely gone over everyone's head at the time, when people still took his lyrics seriously.
