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

Product Description


OK, so the movie to which it’s attached has been denigrated by most of the critics who’ve reviewed it. The soundtrack itself is a marvel that stands just fine on its own. Start with the four tracks by Dylan himself, including bristling new versions of "Cold Irons Bound" and "Down in the Flood" recorded with his remarkable touring band. Add gospel heavyweights Shirley Caesar shouting "Gotta Serve Somebody" and the Dixie Hummingbirds offering country-soul salvation in "City of Gold." But these and performances by Los Lobos and the Grateful Dead are just a warm-up for the CD’s more inspired third: Dylan covers by a variety of obscure international artists. There’s a Japanese language version of "My Back Pages" courtesy of the Magokoro Brothers , an Italian hip-hop take on "Like a Rolling Stone" ("Come Una Pietra Scalciata!") by Articolo 31), a beguiling, string-driven "One More Cup of Coffee" from Turkish pop star Sertab Erener, and a gentle, spoken-word "Most of the Time" by Swedish singer Sophie Zelmani. Oddly, this loopy, polyglot approach stands as a truer testament to Dylan’s genius than the atrocious dialogue (two snippets of which mar an otherwise fine album) or self-conscious artiness of the movie. --Keith Moerer

3.0 out of 5 stars wtf? August 26, 2003
By Sandy
Format:Audio CD
I'll have to disagree with some of the other reviewers, but mostly in terms of the songs they liked and hated. This is a pretty good record. A great Japanese version of My Back Pages starts it off. There is also a cool Italian rap (not Spanish) version of Like a Rolling Stone, and One More Cup... is good track. Most of The Time is also cool, but Sophie Zelmani changes all of the references to the female character to a male one, leading to all sorts of awkward non-ryhmes ("Most of the time/ I can't even be SURE/ if he was ever with me/ Or if I was ever with HIM"??). Los Lobos and De Gregori are annoying tracks. All of the Dylan-performed tracks are great, and I can never understand where the complaining about his voice comes from. Keep listening 'N Sync if that's what you're looking for. And for the record, I have never heard of anyone calling "Saved" one of his worst records. wtf?

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enough Bob... July 23, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Okay, let me get this straight -- eight Dylan tracks were newly recorded by Bob and his band and used in this movie. But this CD contains only four of them. Yo, Sony -- we Bob fans want BOB, and to think that these tracks were left off this album for the likes of Dylan covers by Articolo 31, Sertab, Francesco de Gregori, and Sophie Zelmani (not to mention the tracks by Shirley Caesar and the Dixie Hummingbirds, which aren't even in the film) kind of boggles this fan's mind. Some of the covers are interesting, but others are old hat (like the Dead's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" and Jerry's "Senor," both of which are more notable for their length than anything else). I would have been happy to give up any of these for the four missing Bob-tracks. The digipak edition is otherwise dandy, with a good booklet and a great seven-track SACD bonus sampler. The sound is breathtaking on these remasters, but one wonders why the duplication of the film's "Cold Irons Bound." Ah well. We'll probably see a Masked & Anonymous II with the four missing tracks eventually. Maybe as The Bootleg Tapes Volume 7. Heh heh...

4.0 out of 5 stars Bobby D July 31, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I like the album. The alternate versions of previously released stuff is good, but Dylan's voice obviously wasn't in tip top shape for them. Either way, he makes the best of what he has. Diamond Joe is the only one you'll understand completely if you don't already know the words (like me). If you are looking for an album full of people re-singing Dylan in Dylan's style, this album isn't gonna give it to you. There's a song that samples Rolling Stone and the rest of the lyrics are rapped in Italian. It's doesn't have the same gravity as Dylan, but it's fun to listen to and catchy. The Japanese cover of My Back Pages is good- really angry sounding. I thought Sophie Zelmani's cover of Most of the Time was excellent. It's quiet, she's got a pretty voice and she let's the desperation of the song into her voice. The Los Lobos track's was nice. The Dead track and Garcia track I found to be a little too slow and drab for me to appreciate. One more cup of coffee was pretty wild - very gypsyesque. City of Gold was OK - reminded me of a song Joe Cocker would do. It didn't sound like a Dylan song.

5.0 out of 5 stars a moving collection of Dylan songs, and more July 23, 2003
By Greg
Format:Audio CD
This album contains music from Dylan's new movie "Masked and Anonymous". It opens up with powerful words from the movie. Then goes into some of the best Dylan covers, and songs in a long time. Most of the songs are covers of old Dylan songs, but Dylan preforms some new songs, as well as new versions of old favorites. The new version of Cold Irons Bound is just amazing. Jerry Garcia does an amazing job on Senor(Tales Of Yankee Power). It will just blow you away. A great version of The Dead covering Its All Over Now Baby Blue, the same version featured on the "Postcards of The Hanging" album. Other than Jerry Garcia's moving rendition of Senor, the other track that blew me away was Sophie Zelmani covering the song Most of The Time. She did a fantastic job. There is also a great version of One More Cup of Coffee preformed by Sertab
But what will really stick out to you about this album is the covers of Dylan's songs in differnt languages. My Back Pages is in Japanees. Like a Rolling Stone is called "Come Una Pietra Scalciata", and is in this spanish rap version, that I have to admit, is fun to listen to. If You See Her, Say Hello is known as Non Dirle Che Non E Cosi, and is preformed by Francesco De Gregori. The album ends with Dylan's words from the movie, then breaks into City Of Gold, preformed by the Dixie Hummingbirds. It ends the album in a perfect way. This is one of the best soundtracks you will ever hear. Any Dylan fan would love this album, and the movie.
Included in this package is an SACD hybrid disc of old dylan songs, for the upcoming re-release of the Dylan albums on SACD. Plus one new track from the upcoming Bootleg Series Vol. #6, Bob Dylan Live 1964, The Philharmonic Hall Concert.
The new mix of these songs is a great improvment.
My final thought, get this album, you will be glad you did. It is moving, yet fun and everything you loved with dylan's music before, with a new twist added to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete November 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Like a lot of soundtracks, "Masked and Anonymous" plays it a little cheap by not including all of the performances to be heard in the film. This is probably a way to encourage those who like the music but are less enthralled with the film to shell out money for the DVD. This disc contains four Dylan performances, the standout being his version of the traditional "Dixie," but the movie gave us a few more, including the studio rendition of "Blind Willie McTell." I know it's already available on "The Bootleg Series Vol. 1-3," but having been more appropriate to the theme of the movie than any of the other selections, it should have been included here, too. The rest of the disc, devoted to covers of Dylan classics by everyone from Shirley Ceasar to Francesco De Gregori, is certainly interesting, but may not warrant too many repeat listenings for Dylan fans who would prefer to hear the man himself sing "Gotta Serve Somebody" and "If You See Her, Say Hello."
