iTunes Review

This exhaustive volume of previously unheard Bob Dylan outtakes, rehearsals, song sketches, and alternates of hits chronicles The Bard during his most prolific years—the mid-’60s sessions that gave us Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde. Revelatory, sometimes raw variants of songs like “Like a Rolling Stone” (this set includes the entire 20-take session) and “Just Like a Woman” show how Dylan could masterfully alter a lyrical sentiment, and even its meaning, with simple vocal, and sometimes musical, shifts in phrasing and tone.

Best for non-scholars

... Than the complete 111-track version. Would have made an outstanding double-album fresh release in 1966, and holds up very well a half- century later. Highly listenable, and recaptures the genius of Bob Dylan at one of the many peaks of his career, maybe the greatest time of them all. (It also really makes me yearn to remember the name of the girl in Pocatello with the white MGA convertible, listening to Blonde On Blonde together in the hills above town.)

(Remember Jack Black’s crazed Record Store guy in “High Fidelity”?)-So, Dig This; In part or in full and ask yourself: “Is It Rolling, Bob?”…by Grimmbo.

Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
