BOB DYLAN – Masterpiece Album (One Of Many) ‘BLOOD ON THE TRACKS’ Topped US Charts 47 Years Ago Today

Back in time

8 February 2022

Artist: BOB DYLAN
Album: BLOOD ON THE TRACKS

His fifteenth and one of his most
memorable longplayers ever.

All Music: “This is hardly nostalgia, this is the sound of an artist returning to his strengths, what feels most familiar, as he accepts a traumatic situation, namely the breakdown of his marriage. This is an album alternately bitter, sorrowful, regretful, and peaceful, easily the closest he ever came to wearing his emotions on his sleeve. That’s not to say that it’s an explicitly confessional record, since many songs are riddles or allegories, yet the warmth
of the music makes it feel that way.”
Score: 5/5.

TUTV: It’s simple. Dylan is my all-time favorite singer-songwriter
and this LP is one of my all-time favorite Dylan albums.

Score: The LP topped the US Albums Chart on 8 Feb 1975, 47 years ago today.
Also Number One in Canada, New Zealand and several European countries.
In the UK it peaked at #4
