The Best Songs by Bob Dylan: Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again

bobdylan-blondeonblonde-cover

“Now!… Well for one thing, the music, the rhyming and rhythm, what I call the mathematics of a song, are more second-nature to me. I used to have to go after a song, seek it out. But now, instead of going to it I stay where I am and let everything disappear and the song rushes to me. Not just the music, the words, too.
~Bob Dylan (to Margaret Steen, Nov 1965)

[SIoMWTMBA].. goes beyond being an exciting rock-music performance. It shares with those slower Blonde on Blonde songs ‘Visions of Johanna’ and ‘Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands’ a greater-than-average duration and a general high seriousness of intention.
~Michael Gray (BD Encyclopedia)

@ #5 on my list of Dylan’s 200 best songs.. the second best song on Blonde On Blonde.

The master version (Blonde On Blonde version) was recorded @ Columbia Music Row Studios – Nashville, Tennessee –17 February 1966 (47 years ago).

This was the the 8th Blonde On Blonde session, produced by Bob Johnston.. and after 20 attempts Dylan was satisfied … with take 20. No other songs were tried @ this session.

….and those lovely drums….

…I know it sounds silly, but I love that song and how it pulls me in, but once I’m in there I always focus on the drummer. It’s a song with so much soul, but the more I listen, I always go back to those killer drums.
~Frank Black (Pixies, etc) (to MOJO’s “Dylan 100 best songs edition” )

As a precursor of things to come, Winston Watson is the sole beatmaster tonight. Watson does not attempt anything too ambitious, although Dylan
does attempt “Pretty Peggy-0” and “Queen Jane Approximately” to test his mettle.

October 11: Bob Dylan live in Nottingham 2011





nottingham-2011

“… he was clearly more than up for it, leaving his keyboard and standing centre-stage, sans guitar, for a mesmerising Love Sick, acting out the song with hand movements and, er, strangely demonic grins. I’ve never seen him like that before.

The energy level was maintained for Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues but ramped up still further for Can’t Wait, delivered in a pile-driving stop-start fashion.”
– Nottingham Post

Bob Dylan (vocal & keyboard)
Stu Kimball (guitar)
