Blues on Blonde on Blonde

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
The Telarc label continues its series of blues players covering other artists’ tunes with Blues on Blonde on Blonde, a tribute to Bob Dylan’s 1966 electric outing. Bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton, both former Stevie Ray Vaughan sidemen, back many of the featured performers, giving the set consistency. For the most part, these renditions are derivative of Dylan’s recording, but two cuts are quite tasty and sound as if they were made for the blues artist. Guitarist/vocalist Sue Foley, backed by her own band, adds a smooth slide to her vocals for “Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine,” while her twang-tinged guitar sets an infectious groove. ...

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
The Telarc label continues its series of blues players covering other artists’ tunes with Blues on Blonde on Blonde, a tribute to Bob Dylan’s 1966 electric outing. Bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton, both former Stevie Ray Vaughan sidemen, back many of the featured performers, giving the set consistency. For the most part, these renditions are derivative of Dylan’s recording, but two cuts are quite tasty and sound as if they were made for the blues artist. Guitarist/vocalist Sue Foley, backed by her own band, adds a smooth slide to her vocals for “Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine,” while her twang-tinged guitar sets an infectious groove. Singer/guitarist Joe Louis Walker puts a sense of desperation into his soulful vocals, making “Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again” a statement about African Americans confined to a dead-end life in the South. Among the other performers on the album are Brian Stoltz, Walter Trout, Anders Osborne, Eric Bibb, and Deborah Coleman.
All Music Guide - Campbell
When Bob Dylan's pop masterpiece Blonde on Blonde was originally released in 1966, young white musicians, including Dylan, had spent the earlier part of the decade paying tribute to blues artists who influenced them. It seems rather odd that in 2003 the tables have turned somewhat. Fully 37 years after the debut of Blonde on Blonde, Telarc gathers an assembly of contemporary blues artists to pay tribute to Dylan's masterpiece from his controversial electric period. On these 12 tracks, the Double Trouble rhythm section of Tommy Shannon on bass and Chris Layton on drums backs up such luminaries as C.J. Chenier, Deborah Coleman, Duke Robillard, Cyril Neville, and Joe Louis Walker. The best way to approach a project like this is to simply enjoy it on its own terms and not compare it to the original. With that in mind, this is an extremely enjoyable set, although it is hard to ignore the exclusion of "4th Time Around" and the 11-minute opus "Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands."
