Products sampled from this guide:
In Chronicles, Volume 1, Bob Dylan shares his thoughts on hundreds of songs, artists, poets, and philosphers. He was excited to hear that Amazon.com's music editors have gone through the book, page by page, to pull out some of the most interesting references to songs, albums, and musicians. We've put together these lists by chapter--you'll find links to the other chapters, plus listening recommendations from other musicians, at http://www.amazon.com/musicyoushouldhear.




Bob Dylan's List of Music You Should Hear (Chronicles Edition--Chapter 4)



Watch Your Back, Guitar Shorty



'It's always a trip seeing Shorty. He plays guitar with everything but his hands. I wished I could have done that. Shorty sounds like Guitar Slim, but he does some wild gymnastics that you'd never imagine Guitar Slim doing.' (pg. 167)



Fiyo on the Bayou, Aaron Neville



'Aaron is one of the world's great singers, a figure of rugged power, built like a tank but has the most angelic singing voice, a voice that could almost redeem a lost soul. It seems so incongruous. So much for appearances.' (pg. 178)



Please Please Me (1990), the Beatles



'[The Beatles] were so easy to accept, so solid. I remembered when they first came out. They offered intimacy and companionship like no other group. Their songs would create an empire. It seemed like a long time ago. 'Do You Want to Know a Secret.' A perfect '50s sappy love ballad and nobody but them could do it. Somehow there was nothing wussy about it. The Beatles blasted away.' (pg. 204)



Sun Records: 50th Anniversary



'I'd always thought that Sun Records and Sam Phillips himself had created the most crucial, uplifting and powerful records ever made. Next to Sam's records, all the rest sounded fruity. On Sun Records the artists were singing for their lives and sounded like they were coming from the most mysterious place on the planet. No justice for them. They were so strong, could send you up a wall. If you were walking away and looked back at them, you could be turned to stone.' (pg. 216)



Johnny Cash: The Complete Sun Recordings 1955-58, Johnny Cash



'Johnny didn't have a piercing yell, but ten thousand years of culture fell from him. He could have been a cave dweller. He sounds like he's at the edge of the fire, or in the deep snow, or in a ghostly forest, the coolness of conscious obvious strength, full tilt and vibrant with danger� Johnny's voice was so big, it made the world grow small, unusually low-pitched--dark and booming, and he had the right band to match him, the rippling cadence of click-clack. Words that were the rule of law and backed by the power of God. 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.' (pg. 217)



Kurtis Blow

Ice-T - Greatest Hits: The Evidence

Straight Outta Compton, N.W.A.

Power to the People & The Beats: Greatest Hits

Run-D.M.C. - Greatest Hits



'A few years earlier, Kurtis Blow, a rapper from Brooklyn who had a hit out called �The Breaks,' had asked me to be on one of his records and he familiarized me with that stuff, Ice-T, Public Enemy, N.W.A., Run-D.M.C. These guys definitely weren't standing around bullsh*tting. They were beating drums, tearing it up, hurling horses over the cliffs. They were all poets and they knew what was going on.' (pg. 219)
