Bob Dylan

1969 would find a far different Dylan than just a few years previous. Gone were the angry protest songs and bohemian lifestyle. He was now married with three children and was shunning the limelight.

His fans would flock to records stores to purchase this release as it would soar to the number two position on the National charts and reach number one in England. […]

Bob Dylan‘s ninth album poses fewer mysteries and yet, paradoxically, offers greater rewards than any of his previous work. Its only difficulties aren’t metaphysical or interpretative — indeed, the beauty and openness within is kept almost rigorously simple in genre — but rather those of taking the artist’s new-found happiness and maturity for exactly what they appear to be. That smiling face on the cover tells all — and isn’t it wonderful? […]

Dylan sings different on Nashville Skyline?He was always able to sing like that. He purposely chose not to. But, he would have never gotten famous with that voice. It doesn’t “stand out”, for better or worse, like his Guthrie drawl. Seriously, can you imagine him singing “Rainy Day Women…” or “Like A Rolling Stone” with that voice? […]
