Editorial Reviews

A tribute album to Bob Dylan's music from the 80s, spanning 1980's 'Saved' to 1990's 'Under The Red Sky' (includes Shot Of Love, Infidels, Empire Burlesque, Oh Mercy, The Traveling Wilburys). The mission is to give new light to songs that have gone ignored and suffered from 80s production.

Firstly, I'm a fan of most of Dylan's stuff released in the 80s. Certainly not his heyday, but all together he produced a lot of good stuff in that decade. So naturally I might enjoy this album more than the average person.

I normally cringe when I hear people try to cover Dylan tunes but there are some real gems on here. Some of my favorite covers are Jokerman, Dark Eyes, and You Changed My Life. The Brownsville Girl Reprise has grown on me - though it can't hold a candle to the original. It was nice to see they included a Wilbury tune - Congratulations, which is also one of the better ones.

If there is any knock on this album it's that they ignored "Oh Mery." My favorite Dylan album of the 80s, it would have been nice to hear some covers of Most of the Time, Ring them Bells, Shooting Star, etc. Maybe they're saving that for Volume II.

All and all, I highly recommend this album to big Bob fans. If you're unfamiliar with Dylan's stuff, heard bad rumors about his 80s material, and want a cheap way to judge for yourself- this is probably your best bet.

I'm a fan of Dylan and think his 80's work is of high quality. I also generally like tribute records, both to see how artists interpret material differently and to discover new artists. Unfortunately, this tribute doesn't work. Several artists have chosen some of Dylan's lesser 80's material (Wiggle Wiggle, YOu Changed My Life, etc.) and unsurprisingly failed to make much of it. Built to Spill, Craig Finn, and Bonnie Prince Billy make things interesting but don't redefine the material in the way you would hope.

It takes guts to approach a concept like...."hey let's make an entire album of songs drawn from an artist's least liked period"...but the producers of this album took that risk and we get the reward. I'm really glad I didn't read the other reviews before I bought this one, because I might have stayed away and as it turns out there are a lot of great adaptations on here of a lot of amazing songs that have long been overlooked.

One irksome note on the song selection: There's nothing from the best album of the decade in question 'Oh Mercy'' and at the same time there are several inclusions from 'Under the Red Sky' which was not in fact released in the 80's.

I was really looking forward to this album as Dylan's 80s work is under-rated but this just didn't do it for me. Most of the performances are poor in my opinion.The last 3 songs on the album are superb but if I never heard any of the other stuff again I wouldn't be too upset

Incredible and rare mix of bringing mostly young talent and forgotten songs by a superstar together in a superbly produced album. This is production at its best. The mixing and mastering are exceptional, the selection of artists and new arrangement of songs are marvelous. The recorded performances are stupendous. You don't ever get such variety and simultaneous uniformity of style and perspective in one record, even when the recording is one band. Here you have an album with twenty-five artists and you swear they all had to be hanging out in the studio together. Best album of the year.

This is truly a dreadful album. Virtually every song is done almost identically to the original and so you are left with a feeling of "whats the pint?" I can't think of one song you would want to hear twice.
