Nashville Skyline

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
John Wesley Harding suggested country with its textures and structures, but Nashville Skyline was a full-fledged country album, complete with steel guitars and brief, direct songs. It's a warm, friendly album, particularly since Bob Dylan is singing in a previously unheard gentle croon -- the sound of his voice is so different it may be disarming upon first listen, but it suits the songs. While there are a handful of lightweight numbers on the record, at its core are several excellent songs -- "Lay Lady Lay," "To Be Alone With You," "I Threw It All Away," "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You," as well as a duet with Johnny Cash on "Girl From the North Country"...

And there's no discounting that Nashville Skyline, arriving in the spring of 1969, established country-rock as a vital force in pop music, as well as a commercially viable genre.

    Country Bob

    This is a very good album although it has a little more filler than most of Bob's work up to this point. It is interesting to hear Dylan sing with Johnny Cash as Johnny was one of the first to cover a Dylan song way back when, but their voices dont match up very well. In spite of its flaws, this is a very enjoyable album.

    Awesome

    I was hesitant to get this album because it is a country album but it is a great cd. I love it and listen to it all the time. Buy it.
