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

4.0 out of 5 stars A great Gospel record July 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Dylan's "Christian" phase (Slow Train Coming, Saved, Shot of Love, Infidels) produced some of his very best music. "Saved" is the most "gospel-y" of the four, and redefines the gospel genre in the same way he had successively done for folk, rock, and country (and later did for blues). If in-your-face Christianity makes you uncomfortable, you won't like this album, but anyone who likes gospel music (or any sort of Christian music) must not miss it.
The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it's not for everybody. Dylan is in a musical groove here that is as compelling as in his great trilogy from the mid-70's (Planet Waves, Blood on the Tracks, Desire). "Shot of Love" had greater individual songs (Property of Jesus, Lenny Bruce, The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar, Every Grain of Sand), and "Infidels" was more varied and complex, and "Slow Train Coming" was more of a revelation, but "Saved" is the most consistent of the four and the one which works best as a coherent whole.
For this reason, I don't like to single out songs, because they're all excellent and have a cumulative impact. The lyrics are clear, powerful, and theologically both sound and deep ("What Can I Do For You?" and "Saving Grace" showing particular originality). Dylan's vocals are full of such unmistakable joy, thanksgiving, love of God, and concern for humanity that it's impossible for any Christian not to be deeply moved.
The backing band is terrific, with creative arrangements and notable piano playing from Spooner Oldham.

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't get better than this January 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
When Dylan produced Slow Train Coming a lot of people thought that it was a brief 'spiritual' phase he was going through. However when Saved was produced it horrified the secular music world as he had obviously fallen victim to the christian faith. John Lennon called him a traitor to his own jewish people and concert goers threw food at him when he refused to sing songs from older albums. I remember walking past record stores who were almost giving the cassette of Saved away (well, for .95 cents anyway). Yet it remains Dylans most rockiest,clearest and arguably his most passionate album he has ever produced. I absolutely love it and always go back to playing it. Time has shown that it was a 'phase' for Dylan, and when I went to a concert of his in 1986 with Tom Petty, all his passion had gone..he didn't seem to know who he was or what he was singing about(the critics had a field day). His obviously has come back since then, but I remember this album as a pinnacle of a singer who gave up his dignity and reputation to follow his heart...and isn't that where all good music comes from?

5.0 out of 5 stars Dylan. As good as you'll find him. January 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
What do you need to know?

Should I bolster Dylan's incredible reputation as an incredible songwriter? Should I tell you that he wrote a Christian rock album based on his own genuine faith at the time? Will you buy the album if I tell you it is among my favorite Christian albums, along with Phil Keaggy's (great guitarist with a Paul McCartney voice) and Larry Norman's (singer-songwriter with a folk-blues flavor) groundbreaking work?

Listen to the clips. Dig the blues and black gospel influences. Groove with it. You like Dylan. Of course you do. Even critics of Christianity claim this to be among his best works. When you get into it and feel the verve of his sincerity and depth, you're bound to agree that as a Dylan fan, you have not been disappointed. You'll find he was hardly fundamentalist in his theology, but rich with a complex faith that charged that he should be living out what he was singing about. Nothing namby-pamby is going on here.

The same Dylan who wrote, "The Times They Are A-Changin" wrote every word of "Saved."

If matters of faith cause you to tremble, join the ranks of pop music fans. If spiritual questing, search for meaning and the desire to believe in something that matters in your real life is part of what makes a classic song, buy this CD.

For the less timid, dust off your family Bible and find out he's pulling much of his lyrics straight from Scripture. Check out "Slow Train Coming" or "Shot of Love" to hear more of his work in this genre. If you find out Christian rock is more than Stryper, Amy Grant and jazzed-up versions of "Amazing Grace," boldly go where Christian rock has gone before, and search the net for "In Another Land" or "Only Visiting This Planet" by Norman, or any of Keaggy's stuff.

I fully recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's taken years to convert me January 5, 2007
By DirkL
Format:Audio CD
I tried much too hard to like this album when it was first released back in 1980. I think that I also preferred the thematic content to the actual music, which is where I was at, at the time. Your tastes do sometimes change as you get older (who'da thought it?) and what I like most about this album now is it's rawness and sincerity. The performances of Dylan and his backup singers are amazingly passionate and intense. The band is road-hardened and deliver what sounds pretty much like a live recording. I think that Dylan, who has always been deeply respectful of his forebears in American music, is paying tribute here, to the many amazing performers who have contributed to this wonderful genre over the years. It's gospel music - pure and unadulterated, but it's also wild and unrestrained rock & roll. This album is brilliant and one of his very best.
