BLONDE ON BLONDE

What a great title. Yesterday, after I blogged the double album blog, I had a sneaking suspicion, more of a nagging in the back of my brain, that I had left out something big. Well as Jason pointed out, I left out something monumental. Before The White Album, came this great record from Bob Dylan. Unlike John Lennon, I do believe in Zimmerman, prophet or not. As a whole, I prefer ‘Highway 61 Revisited’, but without a doubt credit must be given to Bob for doing the double album first. Fred picked ‘Blood On The Tracks’ as his number one, and be that as it may, I think he’s going to need another Bob record up there, and I believe it should be one of these two. I must admit that I haven’t given ‘Blonde On Blonde’ a good listen in some time, so I’m going to do that, and then I’ll lobby Fred with my resulting opinion.

Hey, here's a suggestion w/ Blonde on Blonde....one thing I do w/ it (and w/ a lot of albums w/ which I'm too familiar) is play it back on the random track setting. Kind of allows you to hear the body of work on the disk w/ new ears. Wow. I have to agree, Highway 61 is what I always considered the better record, but as years go by I find Blonde on Blonde in heavier and heavier rotation.
