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

  • Bob Dylan: "Johnny Cash's voice was so big, it made the world grow small... When I first heard 'I Walk the Line' so many years earlier, it sounded like a voice calling out 'What are you doing there, boy?' I was trying to keep my eyes wide opened, too."

5.0 out of 5 stars Undeniably great music, but... August 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This slip case encloses three albums that are all very good, and probably should be in the collection of just about any self-respecting music fan. All three are classics, historically important, and great. However, be warned: if you already have these albums, there's no reason to buy this box. The albums are the same (track and package wise), and the new packaging is minimal. However, if you don't already own these CDs, this IS the way that you should purchase them, since they come conveniently in one package, and is considerably cheaper than buying them all separately.
BOTTOM LINE: If you don't have these albums already, get this. If you do, don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind... February 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Make this known; if you enjoy the best of Bob Dylan then you already own these three CDs. However if you enjoy great music but don't own these three classic Dylan sets (shame on you) then this is the way to get them. They're essential '60s folk from the greatest poet of the past 50 years with great sound, coming at an exceedingly low price. (Less than 8$ per CD, in fact) If you insist on knowing more let me review each one for you.
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan- 4 Stars The weakest of three. While much of it is average and it contains its share of filler (Honey Just Allow Me One More Chance is one of Dylan's worst) it also contains some of the greatest material of Dylan's career and in all of music (A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall, Blowin' in the Wind, Girl from the North Country, Don't Think Twice Its All Right, Masters of War). Essential folk and protest music.
The Times They Are a Changin- 5 stars The most consistent and most satisfying of the three albums. Its still folk, but not quite as traditional. Captures Dylan at his most whimsical as a poet, giving us vivid images and fascinating lyrics through his music. Not a bad song in the set. Up there with Dylan's best poetry (Behind Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61, Blonde on Blond, and Time out of Mind.)
Another Side of Bob Dylan- 5 stars Another step in Bob Dylan's evolution. He may still be using accoustic guitar, but Dylan now has some rock 'n' roll attitude to back up his folk style. Here he moves beyond protest music, becoming far more witty and loose. While it is inconsistent (but with less filler than Freewheelin') classics such as My Back Pages, Chimes of Freedom, All I Really Want to Do, and It Ain't Me Babe this is a 5 star classic.

Format:Audio CD
The reason I give it four stars is, other than being a cheap way to pick up all three albums, this package has little marketing value other than economics. It would have been interesting had they stuck on a few unreleased tidbits from the Columbia vaults on here, rounding them out to about 75-80 minutes apiece.
That doesn't mean I think the music is not good. I tend to think of Dylan's work in trilogies, with this acting as his Folk Trilogy. While the debut is folk, this, with the exception of two tracks off FREEWHEELIN', is entirely Dylan's material.
In this package, we have one of the single most important albums released in the Sixties here: THE FREEWHEELIN' BOB DYLAN. Its anthems are well known, and it has one of my favorite Dylan compositions ("Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"). I highly recommend THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOLUMES I-III, with the first disk having some great outtakes to this album. Tracks I think should have been included: "Let Me Die In My Footsteps", "Bear Mountain Picnic", "Lay Down Your Weary Tune", and "House Carpenter". This could have very easily been a double album, and there are a lot of great outtakes to this. The amazing thing, though, is had it been a double album it would still stand as important as it does now.
THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN', is, to me, the weakest of these three albums. Dylan has two albums that capture such emotional depths it is very hard and intense listening. One is BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, and the other this. Which is better depends on what you want, though for most people BLOOD will be the better listen.. THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN' deals with Dylan's cynicism of life, and his plea to get things back in order.

5.0 out of 5 stars some of the greatest of all time October 7, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
in all honesty, these are dylan's 3 best original albums (i also loved his self-titled, but it only contains 2 songs that he wrote). the best of the three, i'd have to say is "the freewheelin' . . ." although the others are very close.

freewheelin' has some of the best songs ever written on it. "don't think twice" and "hard rain's a-gonna fall" are the best in my opinion. hard rain is very emotional and you can tell that dylan meant every word of what he sang about. the sarcasm and wit of "don't think twice" is very humorous, and the melodies and music itself is just brilliant. all the songs on this album are near perfection (with the exception of "blowin' in the wind", i think peter,paul,and mary ruined that one for me).

"the times they are a-changin'" is the second, and damn near equally brilliant, of the set. song's like "only a pawn in their game" and "god on our side" tell the story of a man troubled by what he see's going on around him. the whole album is very strong, most bands would be lucky to have an album with ONE song as good as any of these.

"another side of bob dylan" doesnt really have the reputation of the other two, but is just as good in my opinion. songs like "all i really wanna do" and "i shall be free #10", show that dylan is more than just deep lyrics, his songs stand on their own without a political message. he goes even further with "my back pages" to say that he may even be wrong about some of the things he's saying. lyrics such as "i was so much older then, i'm younger than that now" tell us that he has learned a lot, and isn't as naive as he once was. overall, a beautiful album.

if you are just getting into dylan and want to start buying his albums, i'd say these three are the perfect place to start. they're some of the best albums of ANY artist of ANY time . . .

thank you and good night.
