iTunes Review

Self Portrait is the boldest act of self-definition ever made by a major singer/songwriter. Fed up with fans’ insistence on making him their countercultural guru, Dylan took a drastic detour. On this double album dominated by covers, he brings his Nashville Skyline croon to traditional folk (“Little Sadie"), ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll (The Everly Brothers’ “Take a Message to Mary”), and tunes by his contemporaries (Gordon Lightfoot’s “Early Morning Rain”), making a striking statement about his identity by placing himself in this idiosyncratically curated context.

Customer Reviews

An ignored recording

But plenty to enjoy here, I revisit this recording quite often, sample some tracks and see what I mean. Days of 49, Wigwam, Belle Isle, All the tired horses are all classics that evoke another time period quite wonderfully.

Nobody even bothered to review I did. In time it will be rediscovered.

As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
