Bob's fisrt professional recording gig as a harmonica player. Busts out a nice little solo in this song:



Harry Belafonte - Midnight Special #1 (1961) Harp: Bob Dylan - YouTube

Some great piano playing from Dylan in this one:


Bob Dylan - Sign on the Window - YouTube


Don't see how anyone could say he isn't talented.

As a person living in Minnesota, I know the importance of Bob Dylan. I know that because I remember back in 2004, I did a presentation on this man and back then I did not know a lot about him. But as I got older and learned about Bob Dylan, now I know the importance of him. Bob Dylan loves his town Minnesota. I find his music interesting and I find it just interesting. I know here they are many Dylan fans. So I wish the best for Bob Dylan.

i've seen him in concert 5 times and puts on a great show!
I like his '80s stuff as much as the rest. I even like "Saved" (fave song; Pressing On), which most people consider one of his weakest albums. I wasn't a fan until my 30's, but I like almost everything by him now. I didn't see anyone else refer to the album Love and Theft (I didn't read the whole thread-sorry if I missed it), which is one of his later classics, in my opinion.

I think Infidels is a pretty good album. "jokerman", "sweetheart like you", "don't fall apart on me tonight" and "I and I" are my favorites off the album.

Has anyone read bob's chronicles volume one? In the "oh mercy" chapter, he goes on for like 5 pages about this guitar technique that Lonnie Johnson showed him back in the sixties. He even says that this technique would allow him to play his music in a way that nobody else played and he even thought of it as a "new form of music".

Anyone have any idea about what he's talking about?

He says "it's a highly controlled system of playing and related to the notes of a scale,
how they combine numerically, how they form melodies out of triplets and are axiomatic to the rhythm and chord changes."

Love and Theft was a great album but still fell short compared to Time Out of Mind.

Chef's are fond of saying: "Your only as good as your last dish"
i find this loans its self to musicians very well.

Wow. How did this thread fall this far back? I guess everything worth saying about Dylan gets said at some point?

Regardless, I've been working through Bob Dylan's discography slowly but surely. Last time I was on here I wasn't huge on Dylan and was just starting to get into him but I'm better off now. I think I've listened to everything up to Street-Legal so far but a lot of his 70s work I haven't given a ton of listening to yet. Seems like a very cool dude, and his evolution album to album is very interesting.

How about Time Out of Mind/"Love and Theft"/Modern Times? I hear endless praise of the trilogy from mainstream press and such, but I've never heard anybody else say anything good about them so I'm a bit suspicious. I'm still going to work my way to them regardless, one by one, but I'd like to know if I should be excited or not.
