Bringing it All Back Home - CBS 1965
Five of these songs were basically 12 bar blues with raw unpolished electric accompaniment. Among these "Subterranean Homesick Blues" and "Maggie's Farm" have become classics of the period, while "She Belongs to Me" and "Love Minus Zero / No Limit" are two of the most beautiful love songs Dylan has ever released. Both are available in numerous cover versions - Rick Nelson has for example brilliantly interpreted both songs.
On side two of the original album, Dylan is back in his usual music approach with his acoustic guitar, harmonica and his own characteristic vocals. Lyrically, however, Dylan has moved himself, towards the more surreal and refined. Also here we have some of his greatest classics like "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" two songs which The Byrds superbly chose to interpret.
In short, this is an album that set new standards for modern music and an album all music lovers deserve to hear.
