Overview

Arguably one of the greatest rock 'n' roll records ever, Blonde on Blonde came out during a period of great creativity and considerable tumult for Bob Dylan: The 1966 classic followed two other seminal recordings, Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited, and came at a time when Dylan was playing his first concerts with a plugged-in band. His predominantly folk constituency booed him vociferously at most tour stops, but he was evidently roused by the response. Mostly written in hotel rooms during his tours in '65 and '66, Blonde on Blonde features enduring novelties like "Rainy Day Women #12 and #35" and "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat" and bluesy romps such as "I Want You" and "Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine," as well as beautiful ballads like "Visions of Johanna," "Just Like a Woman," and "Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands." Although it was recorded in Nashville, there isn't a pronounced country sound on Blonde on Blonde. However, following a hiatus (reportedly due to a motorcycle accident), Dylan emerged with a more countrified sound on his following recording, John Wesley Harding, launching another controversial chapter his career.

Right here Bob Dylan captures emotions and visuals that only the human mind can think of but not explain... While Highway 61 Revisited was the swag Saturday rock jams, this would be the (also every so swag) Sunday reflections on your complex life using beautiful, gritty, wacky, and mind blowing melodies and lyrics. However You Will Not Feel All These Emotions Upon First Listen! Keep coming back to it you will love this so!

The best albums that I liked and heard, my wish to make a album like this one, or any Bob dylan best albums that the Rolling stone said in the Rolling Stone 500 best albums of all time. My Favorite record that I heard. The songs are like a album that I will dedicade it, but is a secret. A must have all ya Dylan Fans. BUt the best song that I like to sing to a girl "Just like a woman" She dont know who sings but if I make a tape of this one or buy it to her if something comes, now she will say you singing that song on that album that you gave me. This album is okay,the best songs, the best things,(Like the original LP stlye" but the only that I dont like it is the 2 CD's. I think they want more money but it was better for Single CD, but if there did that idea, i think they going to re-do it again, but still is the best album i heard and the songs i liked.
