Bob Dylan

Why is it that all of The pics of Bob Dylan are in black and white?
Google Image him and all the results are in b&w or very dull colours.

Saw No direction home. It's good aye.

What's Don't look back like?

I would be keen to see a DVD of a complete concert from him cos he was/is very good live from what I've seen.

Bob Dylan - the master!
nz_matt - if you look hard enough there is a TV special from 1976 which is well worth watching. Absolutely brilliant performances of Shelter from the Storm & Idiot Wind, and a number of others. '76 id one of my favourite Dylan live years (along with '65,'66,'95 and 2000, to name a few).

Don't Look Back is great - from the aforementioned '65, his last non-electric tour. See him laugh! See him drink! See him pwn Donovan! See him play some of his greatest songs live!

I'm a Dylan nerd, so feel free to ask here if you have any questions/requests for recommendations etc.

Recommend me a few titles. I've been interested in getting into collecting Bob Dylan but don't know where to start.

I've collected over a hundred Led Zeppelin boots but not one Bob Dylan yet.

OK, here are a few good ones:

Now Ain't The Time For Your Tears ('65)
While The Establishment Burns ('66)
Hold the Fort for What It's Worth ('76)
Bob's Full House ('95)

Try those. Try sampling a couple from each year if you can and see which you like. Dylan is probably the most changable artist there is.

I assume you've got the official Bootleg Series?

^That's one thing I love about dylan, is that he refuses to become nostalgia. When I saw him concert a couple years ago, I was blindsided with unexpected arrangments for his songs. The only one that really stayed somewhat the same was Like A Rolling Stone during the encore.

And as for his pictures always being black and white, it was because of the time, it was the early 60s, colour was relqatively new. But also black and white photos just look classier and cooler.

*raises hand*

Very few come close to him when it comes to songwriting ability. He has an uncanny talent at writing both music and lyrics. Desolation Row is my favorite Dylan song. He rhymes words that have no relation to each other, yet they seem perfect. And he is still chugging on today, his latest record is an awesome recording.

Bob Dylan is, if not the greatest (which I'd like to say he is), definitely one of the greatest songwriters ever. Top 3 without a doubt. My favourite song is probably Positively 4th Street folowed by Ballad of a Thin Man.

EDIT: Last time I checked, I couldn't believe there were no Dylan thread. I guess a lot of the UGers prefer cheesy solos above good songwriting.

So many Dylan songs are amazing. The beef I have with Dylan (and most singer/songrwriters) is that while their good songs are amazing, their shit songs are SHIT.
Lets face it, Dylan wrote some terrible songs.

^I don't know, I haven't heard all of his music (too damn much). Still, he's been around for more than 40 years now and have recorded almost one record/year. It's kinda hard to maintain quality with that kind of quantity. I mean, sure, he could be like freakin Radiohead and spend 2 years recording one album. But that wouldn't be Dylan, would it?

All I'm sayin' is that while some artists release three records in three years, some artist record a lot longer. It's all preference.

EDIT: What I mean is; the more songs you write, the more bad songs you will write (and good ones too, of course).

You do have a point. When he is good he's amazing, when he isn't he is terrible. I saw him live a few years ago and walked out, he was that bad. A friend saw him recently and said it was the best thing they've ever seen.

The interesting thing about Dylan is that the stuff he chose not to release is just as amazing as the stuff he did release. The bootlegs alone prove this. I've not listened to him in ages but i'm stuck doing my work tonight and listening to 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan' is a wonderful treat.
