Blues (Bob Dylan)

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
The music of Bob Dylan has been profoundly touched by the blues -- from his first album to his latest, Modern Times. Either in song construction or in mood, Dylan’s songs continually call on the genre, drawing from the primal power of America’s most significant roots music. This Barnes & Noble exclusive collection centers on blues-tinged material drawn from Dylan albums beginning with 1965’s Bringing It All Back Home “She Belongs to Me” and ranging to 2003’s Love and Theft “High Water”.

Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
The music of Bob Dylan has been profoundly touched by the blues -- from his first album to his latest, Modern Times. Either in song construction or in mood, Dylan’s songs continually call on the genre, drawing from the primal power of America’s most significant roots music. This Barnes & Noble exclusive collection centers on blues-tinged material drawn from Dylan albums beginning with 1965’s Bringing It All Back Home “She Belongs to Me” and ranging to 2003’s Love and Theft “High Water”. If the rough-edged quality of Dylan’s voice in the later selections betrays the hand of time, his intensity and commitment on each of these classic tracks seems undiminished. From the laid-back groove of “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry” to the spiritual fervor of “Gotta Serve Somebody” to the lonesome wail of “Blind Willie McTell,” Dylan makes brilliant use of the striking musical, lyrical, and -- above all -- emotional resources of the blues to intensify his personal statements. This stirring collection makes us glad that Dylan has an unshakable case of the blues.
