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

This is one of his best albums ever.

All around, I really enjoy this album and I love pulling it out to shock those who complain that Dylan "can't sing."

I love this album! I used to listen to it years ago and rediscovered it recently -- it just holds up incredibly well. The artistry is consistent and of very high quality, and Dylan's voice is atypically rich and melodic. The range of tunes is perfect: from the heartbreakingly beautiful "Lay Lady Lay" (I'm a sucker for pedal steel), the bittersweet "I Threw It all Away" and the lovely "Girl From the North country" sung with Johnny Cash, to the sunny, uptempo "Peggy Day," the tongue-in-cheek "Country Pie," and the sexy and mellow "Tonight I'll be Staying Here with You." The whole CD is totally uplifting -- Thanks, Bob!

I've always been a huge Dylan fan, in fact I have most of his albums, but this one I had always kind of held off on, thinking, "Hmm, Dylan doing a pure country album, this might be one to hold off on for a little while." I was absolutely shocked. While the lyrics might not be as profound as Bob's greatest and the music not as groundbreaking, the album is positively infectious. I heard that this was a happy album and always kinda cringed thinking on other disasters that artists had created in "happy" moments. This is far from a disaster, in fact, it is an absolute triumph. Nashville Skyline is as good as country gets and then some. The slower songs, like the haunting remake of "Girl From the North County" with Johnny Cash are touching and the more upbeat and playful songs like "Country Pie" and "Peggy Day" are fun like they should be. The musicianship is superb and Dylan's vocals are smoother than usual. Maybe not top 5 Dylan, but an excellent album, even a classic in my opinion.

I may get stoned by Dylan purists for saying this ( or given a "not helpful" vote), but this is my favorite Dylan album...you don't have to think, contemplate, or concentrate...just kick back and enjoy some laid back, simple, memorable music that sticks in your head. How many times have I whistled or sung "I'd love to spend the night with Peggy Day?"...actually, I got in trouble once for singing my own version when I met a lady named Peg Knight and I immediately broke into "I'd love to spend the day with Peggy Knight" Unfortunately, the people around me weren't familiar with the original song...that aside, I love everything about this album, even the "so fitting that they left it in 'is it rolling Bob?'" Dylan sings at the beginning of "To be Alone with You."
This album is totally enjoyable...don't be put off by the "country" label it has been given...this really isn't country! Maybe the little home cookin' "Country Pie" and the almost obligatory country jam "Nashville Skyline Rag" are about as country as this album gets. What it has are some beautiful love songs sung by a crooning Bob Dylan...this is a great, timeless, absolutely enjoyable, easy listening album that I've owned ever since it was released waaaaay back. I'm glad to own this on CD and never hesitate to throw it on for some good uplifting music...notice I haven't even mentioned Johnny Cash; that cut stands on its own as a classic piece of music sung by two guys who liked to dress in black; who have very "unique" singing styles; and who should never have sung a duet together! But somehow, it works! They remind me of two guys who one night were drowning their sorrows and broke into song. This is an album that has no "dead spots"; it's all good.

Nobody in rock garners the distinction of turning more heads than Dylan. He's been taking unexpected corners as early as "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" in 1963. He now abandons rock completely and heads all the way into the country realm.

Though not lyrically dense like "John Wesley Harding", conceptually this is a perfectly realized outing right down to its congenial cover. Dylan sings it straight with his warm croon. The mood of the album is supported brilliantly by the musicians and producer Bob Johnston.

The impromptu-sounding duet with Johny Cash and the vivacious hillbilly hoot that lends this album's name set the tone for the record. Even trivialities such as "Peggy Day" and "Country Pie" gain presence into the context of the whole. And the man has a flair for melody as evidenced in its three greatest cuts: the remorseful twinge of "I Threw It All Away", the impending gloom on "Tell Me That It Isn't True" and the lover man that warrants the AM/FM smash "Lay Lady Lay". Pete Drake's pedal steel riff on this last cut is positively ingratiating.

Dylan's never had so much fun and regret on a record and there's no reason we can't rejoice in the fact that he's being human. And this still adds to his mystique including the brevity of the entire thing.

Happy Birthday Bob!

A moment in time: That's what my dad would say about photographs. Pictures are just a single moment in time captured forever. The same could be said for a record.
It's capable of capturing a moment in time. I'm not talking about representing a specific era of time, but the record itself represents honest moments captured live. So many artists are obsessed with recording their masterpiece. Tracks are recorded, re-recorded, mixed, remixed, mastered, and then remastered. Where does it all end? From the very first track of "Nashville Skyline" it is evident Bob Dylan isn't concerned with recording a masterpiece. But in my opinion, that's exactly what he did.

"Girl from the North Country", a duet with Johnny Cash is the lead track. Bob takes the first verse. From the moment he starts singing it's apparent he is really trying to sing. His voice is almost wounded as if he is searching for some sort of refuge. Johnny comes in with the second verse; his voice soulful, rich, and deep. Bob comes back with the third verse and Cash soon joins him. Their voices work so well together. But too, you'll hear each singing different lyrics or phrasing the same words differently while singing together. This may bother some perfectionists. I take comfort in the genuineness of their performance.
"Nashville Skyline Rag," the album's only instrumental. I like the separation of the instruments in the mix on this song. This is a constant throughout the record. Guitars, bass on the left, drums and harmonica on the right side at the beginning provide a nice foundation for the song. As soloists are introduced they are mixed appropriately within the current context of the song.
"To Be Alone with You:" One of my favorite songs on the record.
