    One of Bob's Best

    Blonde on Blonde is probably Dylan's best album. This 1974 CD is probably his second best ahead of Highway 61. It is probably his best collection of melodies and contains two of his less played classics. Idiot Wind is a more mature Like a Rolling Stone. Rosemary, Lily, and the Jack of Hearts is probably Dylan's greatest story song, a long Western parable about love, murder, and fate. Tangled Up in Blue was the single and has one of the more recognizable openings in popular music. It is interesting to hear alternate versions of some of the tracks on the Biograph and the Bootleg Series Vol. 1-3 Box sets.

    One of Dylan's Greatest Albums

    'Blood on the Tracks' is arguably Bob Dylan's greatest album. It starts with the popular 'Tangled up In Blue' before drifting into the lesser-known folk side of Dylan. It's a shame many of these songs never became mainstream because they show a side of Dylan that isn't found anywhere else. I recently purchased 'Blonde on Blonde' and, even though it contains many of Dylan's hits, I still like 'Blood on the Tracks' better. A must-have for any Bob Dylan fan.

    What is love?

    Buy this CD for the liner notes. Buy this CD because the sequence of songs is as important as the songs themselves. You will listen to this masterpiece your entire life, when you are falling in love, when you are breaking up, when you are in love and don't know what the future holds. Dylan's best record, although that point can be argued. Please visit: timothyherrick.blogspot.com/

    Return to Greatness

    After making a few good albums (and one stinker) in his post accident career, it seemed that Dylan's quality had descended to the level of us mere mortals. Then came Blood On The Tracks, a masterpiece equal to his great albums of the '60's. There is no fat here, it's all lean muscle and performed with an intensity rarely seen in a studio album. This is not Dylan the folk singer or Dylan the Country artist, this is Dylan the Rock and Roll star! A GREAT album!

    THE PEAK OF THE MATURED CREATIVITY OF THE FOLK-ROCK’S MASTER AND COMMANDER

    While trying to repair its ten years marriage crumbled into bits and to digest the glory of a breathtaking marathon-tour with "The Band", Mr.Bob Dylan creates one of his key masterpieces (Perhaps his best, for, all his albums since, would be compared with "Blood On The Tracks"). The folk, the country, the blues and the rock'n'roll; that means, all that Mr.Dylan always adored as kind of music; constitutes the heart of this "wound inside the brain's pathways". As for the texts, they are his most successful song-poems since "Blonde On Blonde” and they suit perfectly well the melodies’ flexible and light rhythm and the maestro’s unique voice, which strolls between the calm and the storm. In your opinion, who can possibly resist the vertiginious power of attraction of "Tangled Up In Blue", "You Are A Big Girl Now", "Idiot Wind", "Shelter From The Storm" or "If You See Her, Say Hello"? "Nobody", according to me. Our existence betrays us each day and morever it does not cease trying to destroy our hopes for the following day. With its songs, all blue and bleeding, this album shows us once again that despair could be a blazing source for the creativity of the artists and their fans.

    Blood on the Tracks

    The songs on this album will make you laugh, cry, and be utterly amazed by the writing talent of Bob Dylan (just listen to "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts"). My favorite song on the album is probably "Idiot Wind," but all of them are classics. "If You See Her Say Hello" is absolutely heartbreaking. Just about everyone can relate to this piece of work in some way.
