Backwoodsman Sandman and Discussion of Dylan Songs (92* d) RE: Sandman and Discussion of Dylan Songs 17 Jan 21


I think His Bobness has written a few very good songs, a larger number of good songs, and an even larger number of songs that, at best, fall into the ‘Meh’ category.

As a singer, he’s made a few very good recordings, a larger number of good recordings, and an even larger number of recordings that, at best, fall into the ‘Meh’ category.

I couldn’t listen to an entire evening of Dylan performing his own songs, yet I’ve been to a number of evenings of other people performing Dylan’s songs and thoroughly enjoyed them. And, like Nick, BITW blew me away when I first heard it back around ‘62 or ‘63 - I still think it’s one of his best, although ‘Positively 4th Street’ takes a lot of beating, and I do love ‘Murder Most Foul’ from his most recent album.

The usual disclaimers apply......IMHO, YMMV etc.
