BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME is living legend BOB DYLAN‘s, who’s 77 now, fifth LP.
A 24 karat masterpiece, half electric/half acoustic. All killers no fillers. It was released on
22 March 1965, 54 years ago today and still sounding sprightly and absolutely timeless!
It was the LP he wanted to make so eagerly to distance himself from the folk elite so he could evolve as an artist. Some months later when he played the famous Newport Folk Festival (Rhode Island, US) he started his set with the electric songs from the LP. A great part of the audience booed him. A year later also English crowds criticized Dylan for being
a traitor to folk music and becoming a rock ‘n’ roll artist. As usual, he didn’t care, rightly so, what the people taught and followed his own chosen path with several fantastic albums (and also a string of awful ones).
Here’s the amazing first single off that outstanding longplayer. Subterranean Homesick Blues with its rap-like vocals and its inventive video, actually one of the very first modern promotional film clips ever (remember it was 1965). It opened the eyes and ears of many contemporary artists and record labels. Dylan was ahead of his time…
