Listened to this album today and thought it was a solid album. I enjoyed the rootsy production. Very good collection of songs with the first Forever Young being the best. Not the best Dylan album ever but far from being the worst

It's a weird album. Only Dylan album that wasn't on epic or sony or whatever it is/was ...

I wouldn't say it has rootsy production

I enjoy the album.

In 1973, David Geffen, the founder of Asylum Records (label of Jackson Brown, Joni Mitchell & Eagles) wooed Dylan away from his Columbia Records contract. PLANET WAVES and BEFORE THE FLOOD were released in 1974 on the Asylum label before Columbia renegotiated his return the same year.







This was the time Columbia released the scandalous DYLAN album featuring outtakes from SELF PORTRAIT and NEW MORNING. I actually like the album though most people and critics did not. Good tracks "Ballad of Ira Hayes" and "Mr. Bojangles."

self portrait is a fine album--the criticism leveled was a product of the expectations of Bob that came at the time...same with planet waves...alot of people wanted Bob boxed into a particular style & he's been upsetting them since he went electric & rebelled against being the"protest" songwriter for a generation...

I seem to remember Dylan in his book, didn't give a crap for his Self Portrait album

He just did it to do it and didn't care. If it was crap, put it on there.
If it wasn't put it on there. If it was WTF, put it on there.

true--but still an enjoyable album imho....& his WTF attitude was rooted in the demands put on him by folks who wanted him to embody values they believed--so,typical contrarian Bob & a WTF album made perfect sense
