14 Songs, 1 Hour 12 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Dylan had a sound in mind that he couldn’t get from the usual New York musicians, so he, Robbie Robertson, and Al Kooper went to Nashville to record with producer Bob Johnston and the city’s best session cats. The epic, visionary songs—“Visions of Johanna,” “Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again,” “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands”—lean on ensemble musicianship that keeps the energy moving forward, while a subtle tenderness underscores “I Want You,” “Just Like a Woman,” and “Absolutely Sweet Marie.”
