bob dylan album 1962

..His talent takes many forms. He is one of the most compelling white blues singers ever recorded. He is a songwriter of exceptional facility and cleverness. He is an uncommonly skillful guitar player and harmonica player.
~Stacy Williams (“Bob Dylan” LP. liner notes)

Dylan’s first album can hardly be faulted. It is a brilliant debut, a performer’s tour de force,….

Shut the light, shut the shade

March 16: Bob Dylan making Most Of The Time promo video – 1990





bob dylan most of the time

Most of the time
I’m clear focused all around
Most of the time
I can keep both feet on the ground
I can follow the path, I can read the signs
Stay right with it when the road unwinds
I can handle whatever I stumble upon
I don’t even notice she’s gone
Most of the time

.. Sony wanted him to record a promo video of the song to help their ongoing attempts to promote an album that had been (correctly) received as a real return to form. And Dylan, being Dylan, duly obliged by re-recording the song with the musicians destined to feature on his next album, under the red sky, and letting his son Jesse film the results. The resultant thudding threnody was as unambient as it gets. Yet Dylan dug it enough to allow promo CDs of this new version to be released, even though after a month off the road his voice was not in great shape, and the song suffers accordingly
