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

3.0 out of 5 stars 39 years at about 39 dollars... Ouch! April 19, 2001
By MG Nagy
Format:Audio CD
The rest of the jacket art reads, "Thirty-nine years of great concert performances." They could have done better. First, a complete track list:

Somebody Touched Me 2:42 (2000 Portsmouth, England) - Previously Unreleased
Wade In The Water 2:59 (1961 Minneapolis, MN) - Previously Unreleased
Handsome Molly 2:47 (1962 Gas Light) - Previously Unreleased
To Ramona 4:27 (1965 Sheffield, England) - "Don't Look Back" Outtake
I Don't Believe You 6:00 (1966 Free Trade Hall, Manchester, England)
Grand Coulee Dam 2:56 (1968 "A Tribute To Woody Guthrie, Part I")
Knockin' On Heaven's Door 3:49 (1974 "Before The Flood")
It Ain't Me, Babe 5:16 (1975 film "Renaldo & Clara") - Promo only EP
Shelter From The Storm 5:25 (1976 "Hard Rain")
Dead Man, Dead Man 3:56 (1981 New Orleans) - Cassette Single B-side
Slow Train 4:59 (1987 "Dylan and the Dead")
Dignity 6:35 (1994 "MTV Unplugged")
Cold Irons Bound 6:49 (1997 Los Angeles, CA) - "Love Sick" import single bonus track
Born In Time 5:19 (1998 NJ) - Bonus track off of an import single for "Time Out Of Mind"
Country Pie 2:48 (2000 Portsmouth, England) - Previously Unreleased
Things Have Changed 5:52 (2000 Portsmouth, England) - Previously Unreleased

(TRT 72:49)

I guess I'll complain first. If you have the "Don't Look Back" DVD, you duplicate "To Ramona." If you have the JP "Love Sick" or the Australian "Time Out Of Mind" with the extra disc, you will duplicate "Cold Irons Bound." Five more tracks are straight off regular releases. That wouldn't bother me if they had remastered the tracks on this CD. I don't own any of those records because of how bad they sound. I'll stop complaining now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basically a Sony gimic August 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
So, there are a few great things on here: Grand Coulee Dam (Dylan at the very crest--just listen to the singing on the line "She comes OFF the Canadian Rockies, where the crystal waters glide..."), Somebody Touched Me (in Dylan's current touring, what makes the music really great is the fantastic bluegrass/country style of the backup musicians), Handsome Molly (a very pretty, though a bit innocuous, bit of very early Dylan). Wade in the Water is also, I suppose, very good, though I find his grisled old bluesman voice from the pre-Freewheelin' days pretty affected. The rest is the typical hit and miss of Dylan concerts, with emphasis on "miss": Dylan's sound is generally an intimate one, even when he's doing rock (She's Your Lover Now, Tangled Up In Blue) and, in my opinion, it does not lend itself to the necessarily ham-fisted approach of big-scale concerts. Still, there are concerts where the sheer might of his performance (and the vitality of the then-new songs) triumphed, as heard in the Bootleg 4 "Live '66" album. Also, a live performance which is essentially a studio set-up (MTV Unplugged) can yield good results. But these concerts have already been released, as have some decidedly mediocre and poor Dylan performances (Budokon, the Dead). Why, if Sony was going to do a live album, couldn't they have dug into the vaults just a little deeper? A lot of great stuff is floating around on bootlegs--bootlegs so widespread and well-known that they're catalogued in books--why not reward our shelling out so much cash with a few of these...

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare and Beautiful March 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains 16 tracks of live concert recordings, eleven of which are labeled, "rare or previously unreleased." Three of the songs are traditional songs and one, "Grand Coulee Dam," was written by Woody Guthrie. The sound quality is exceptional and you really get a feel for the excitement in the air as Dylan takes the stage.
My favorite track is "Wade in the Water." This has an incredibly gutsy sound. Close your eyes and see if you can't imagine an aging blues singer from the South or maybe a smoky Chicago blues club. Open them to see a skinny white dude from Minnesota!
What is especially nice about this collection is the choice of songs; a little bit country, gospel, folk, blues and if all goes well in a few weeks, an academy award winner as well. What is missing are the old standbys, "Like a Rolling Stone," "Rainy day Women," "All Along the Watchtower," all of which are available on other recordings. Instead we get to hear some songs not often included in collections like this. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars 11 out of 16 ain't bad (ain't great but ain't bad) March 17, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This should get 5 stars for the music, 3 stars for Sony's track selection. As there is no shortage of rare and (officially) unreleased live Dylan covering his entire career, there was no need to include 5 tracks off of existing albums. For example: from the 1966 tour instead of "I Don't Believe You" (which many fans already have twice -- on "Live 1966" and "Biograph") Sony could have included "Just Like Tom's Thumb's Blues" (which is available only on a rare 7" and the Australian "Masterpieces" compilation). Likewise "Heaven's Door" from 1974's "Before the Flood" and "Shelter From the Storm" from 1976's "Hard Rain" could have replaced with additional tracks from the out-of print Woody Guthrie tribute album and rare promo "Renaldo & Clara" EP. From the MTV session, Sony could have substituted "Love Minus Zero" (which is currently available only on the video release) for "Dignity". And if Sony had to include something from Dylan's tour with the Dead, couldn't they have scraped up an out-take? In fact "Slow Train Comin'", "Dignity" and "Shelter" are arguably the three weakest tracks on this CD, making their presence doubly frustrating. As for the rest of it, from 1961 to 2000 the tracks are all good-to-great and, while not entirely unavailable before, not already in most fans' collections. For those 11 tracks, the CD is worthwhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential? Debatable
But still a fascinating item that any completist will require. It does cover the career to its release date, so is a crazy quilt of solo and band recordings.
