Bob Dylan – Bringing It All Back Home

Brining It All Back Home

Bob DylanBringing It All Back Home Columbia CS 9128 (1965)

The first side, where Bob Dylan makes his first real attempt at rock music, feels like a mere warm-up for Highway 61 Revisited.  That side is good — very good even — but not great.  Side two, with a more familiar folk sound, is better, truly achieving greatness with “Mr. Tambourine Man” and “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding).”
