If Bob Dylan can make an Xmas album, anything can happen in this world.

Ah, I wasn't that surprised. If G.G. Allin made a Christmas album, then I'd say "anything can happen".

Anyway, I can't blame you for stopping since Down in the Groove is next. Though, mercifully, it's only like 32 or 33 minutes.
Aww, I like Down In The Groove just fine, only one I REALLY can't take is Under The Red Sky

some of his albums have been far better than others, i would love to talk to him to find out what he thinks about that and if he can be impartial/objective to that idea and comment on what he thinks attributed to better or worse songs, whether it was the time period of his life and things surrounding him or if it just ended up like that.. i write songs and i distinctly know what is better and which is worse

I always figured "Red Sky" he heard the sounds and felt the feel the producer Was getting, knew the record wasn't going to turn out how he wanted, and just got himself through it

I just never was a big fan of Dylan, I guess its fact that his band was out at a critical stage/& time in the developement of rock history, or something to that affect, but I never cared about his songwriting ability also, the only song I ever liked he wrote was, When the night comes falling, performed by The Jeff Healy Band. I liked his son, Jacob Dylan with the WallFlowers, I felt Jacob Dylan had alot better voice & control than his dad did.

Afraid your wrong there pal, the earliest RELEASED recording of Dylan dates back to 1959, 'I've Got Troubles', released with the No Direction Home Soundtrack.

Aside from actual released pieces there's unreleased recordings of him from 1957.

sleepy jack - you've made an admirable and useful effort by reviewing the Dylan albums, it's always going to be hard with the breadth of his work and everybody having differing opinions on his songs. It would be fair to say there is no stereotypical Dylan 'fan', which is a testimony to the quality and variation of his music throughout his career. Although you do seem to gloss over certain landmark songs in his repertoire, then again that is subjective so what might seem a benchmark composition to one person is just another song to another.

Kristian Mattson, a young folk singer from Sweden has caused quite a stir in Europe and the inevitable comparisons to Dylan have been made. I recently did a story on him in my Aural Fixation blog in the member diary section. Kristian performs under the name of the Tallest Man on Earth and he's just released his second album.

I'm posting his song The King of Spain and wondering what other Dylan fans think of his music.

To me, he sounds eeirely like Bob especially during the Freewheelin'/Another Side of Bob Dylan albums. Kristian's lyrics are fantastic but he seems a bit limited to playing a certain kind of music. But that's what everyone said about Dylan before 1965.

Gavin B - thanks so much for that!!!

that one tune has singlehandedly put my faith back in modern country/folk music. kristian mattson is now my new favourite artist haha

although a bit hard pushed to see that much dylan in him

you heard/like josh ritter? he's another one who really caught my eye who you could also compare to dylan
