Daydreamers LOW Knock On BOB DYLAN’s Door

15 April 2021

British music monthly UNCUT will celebrate the imperishable and legendary
troubadour BOB DYLAN‘s 80th birthday (my all-time favorite singer/songwriter
born in Duluth, Minnesota on 24th May 1941) with a CD of covers.

Uncut‘s June issue comes with DYLAN REVISITED: “A covermount CD made up
of 14 cover versions of choice cuts from Dylan’s songbook recorded exclusively for
Uncut, as well as a previously unreleased track from the man himself.”

One of the artists who were invited to pick a Dylan pearl are daydreamers
LOW – originally coming from the same city where the master was born!

They covered Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door. A beauty Robert Zimmerman wrote
for the soundtrack of 1973 western movie Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

Low truly enchants, charms, and twinkles with their starry-eyed interpretation.

Dim the lights, light a candle and dream away…

Single ‘SUBTERRANEAN HOMESICK BLUES’ By BOB GENIUS DYLAN – Released This Day In 1965

Top singles from the past

8 March 2021

Artist: BOB DYLAN
My all-time favorite singer/songwriter

Single: SUBTERRANEAN HOMESICK BLUES
Released: 8 March 1965 – 56 years ago today.

Album: Bringing It All Back Home
His 5th LP – timeless masterwork.

Note: The original historic clip became the opening of Dylan’s documentary
Don’t Look Back by D. A. Pennebaker. Dylan came up with the idea of showing
cue cards with selected words and phrases from the songs. The several cards
were written by Donovan, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Neuwirth and Dylan himself. There
are intentional misspellings and puns throughout the clip. A groundbreaking
promo visual for a pop/rock song.

BOB DYLAN Released ‘DESIRE’ Album 45 Years Ago Today

Back in time…

5 January 2021

Artist: BOB DYLAN

Album: DESIRE – Zimmerman’s 17th LP
Released: 5 January 1976 – 45 years ago today

AllMusic: “There’s no other place where Dylan tried as many different styles,
as many weird detours, as he does here.. And, there’s something to be said for its
rambling, sprawling character, which has a charm of its own. Even so, the record
would have been assisted by a more consistent set of songs; there are some
masterpieces here.”
Full review here. Score: 4.5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: In my top 10 of best-Bob-Dylan-albums-ever.

Highlights: Hurricane / Mozambique / Romance In Durango / Sara

BIG BLASTS FROM THE PAST – 5 Classic Albums Turning 45 In 2021

These 5 classic LP’s turn 45 in 2021

– BLONDIE – BLONDIE

Released: 10 December 1976 – debut LP
Rolling Stone wrote: “Everything is sung by Deborah Harry, possessor of a bombshell zombie’s voice that can sound dreamily seductive and woodenly Mansonite within the same song. It’s an interesting combination and forces all the songs on Blondie to work on at least two levels: as peppy but rough pop, and as distanced, artless avant-rock.”

.
– RAMONES – RAMONES

Released: 23 April 1976 – debut LP
AllMusic wrote: “With the three-chord assault of “Blitzkrieg Bop,” Ramones begins at a blinding speed and never once over the course of its 14 songs does it let up. The Ramones is all about speed, hooks, stupidity, and simplicity. The songs are imaginative reductions of early rock & roll, girl-group pop, and surf rock.”

Bop here…

.
– STUPIDITY – DR. FEELGOOD

Released: 15 September 1976 – third LP
AllMusic wrote: “Comprised of recordings taken from 1975 tours, the live Stupidity finally captures the relentless, hard-driving energy of Dr. Feelgood at their peak. All the music on Stupidity is presented raw and without overdubs, making it clear that the dynamic friction between guitarist Wilko Johnson and vocalist Lee Brilleaux could propel the band toward greatness.”

Go nuts here…

.
– DESIRE – BOB DYLAN

Released: 5 January 1976 – 17th LP
Rolling Stone said: “In typical Dylan style, the follow-up to Blood on the Tracks was mostly bashed out in one all-night New York session, fueled by tequila. “Sara,” his account of his crumbling marriage, and the politically charged “Hurricane” highlight the last great album
he’d make for many years.”

Here comes the hurricane

.
– HOTEL CALIFORNIA – EAGLES

Released: 8 December 1976 – fifth LP
Billboard said: “The casually beautiful, quietly-intense multileveled vocal harmonies
and brilliant original songs that meld solid emotional words with lovely melody lines
are all back in force, keeping the Eagles at the acme of acoustic electric soft rock.”
