I love his lyrics more than the music. Still a legend.

Apologies if this has already been posted (this thread's way too long for me to check) but this is a very interesting recent-ish interview with Bob Dylan. The man doesn't look very happy at all and, much like Van Morrison today, seems tired, weary, regretful, sick of fame.
Towards the end of the interview he suggests making some kind of a bargain a long time ago. Curious.

Poor Bob.





Lets cheer ourselves up with his genius:

Hurricane

Loving BOTT atm.

^ Good for you, Man like Monkey

For me Blood on the Tracks is his best album:
- his voice was mature, not wrecked
- instrumentally there is a lighter touch than the too-solid plodding that marrs some of his albums
- every song has wonderful lyrics from start to finish. In the whole album, i don't think there's a song, or even a line, that I don't like. Can't say that about many albums.

It's the only one I really love. I've tried Blonde on Blonde and H61 but they didn't really do anything for me. Like A Rolling Stone is such a great song for me though.

BOTT is near flawless imo, I need to be in the right mood for it but when I listen to it I play it from start to finish and enjoy it a lot.

^ I agree, H61 and Blonde on Blonde caused quite a sensation when they came out and still retain a reputation as being special, but BoB especially has a lot of tracks with weak, repetitive lyrics and uninspired backing musicians.

If you like Blood on the Tracks for the same reasons I do, I'd recommend you try Desire, then John Wesley Harding and Street Legal. Some great songs, some great stories on all of those albums.
