The last few days, I started listening to Dylan's Street Legal and Slow-train Coming albums.

While the production is a little slick for my ultimate tastes, the songs are really excellent, and Dylan's voice is as strong as I've ever heard it.

Anyone else a fan of this era?

Just out of curiousity, how old are you? "this era" lol
I've loved Bob since I first heard him "many moons past" especially when he and Joan Baez (sp) hooked up and sang. (Bet y'all don't know who she is) lol

SLOW TRAIN COMING has always been one of my favorites. You know the "slick production" is definitely a product of its times (mid to late 70s) and definitely sounds dated. Especially the fender rhodes electric piano and the horns. But it sounds great in headphones, especially with the stereo acoustic guitars strumming away .

Apparently guest guitarist Mark Knophler had no idea that the songs were about Born Again Christianity and was surprised when he found out. However his guitar sounds great throughout. Also I like Pick Withers' distinctive drumming.

Mid 70's, ya, ya, ya, blah, blah, blah....

Not sure everyone saw this, so I'll post here....this was from that gig at the Whitehouse the other day.

Sure, give ole Bob's voice all the guff you want, he is still doing it.

Oh and the piano on this just kills me....love it.

there are many eras of Bob--all magical--i've been listening & seeing Dylan since the mid sixties & have met people who only dig particular eras--in fact,some younger people i know have enabled me to return to different periods of Dylan's work that i may have neglected--so age doesn't matter(& i've seen Joan Baez a few times! lol)--if you love Dylan,any era,or all of 'em,i'll enjoy talking to you so,i also believe you were only kidding around...

a few eras to enjoy!

I love every "era" of Bob Dylan and that group of folks. He reminds me a lot of Dylan Thomas, words have such meaning and they are a battle cry as the Highlanders had during the '45 Rising.

I was never a big fan of Dylan until I bought my first CD of his, Modern Times. Then I bought the Traveling Wilburys documentary on itunes. Thats some good stuff.

Casey, you are a clown. Seriously, poking fun of someone's age because of the mention of the word "era?"

Dylan's gone through so many incarnations: folkster of the early-60's; pusher of the rock envelope in the mid-60's; early 70's soft rock recluse; mid-70's gypsy troubador; late-70's religious rocker - that it's sensical... no, damned near essential to break his career up into segments.

So, genres, segments, eras... whatever the verbiage you use, it's spot on.

For the record, I'm 31, hold a masters degree in School Building Leadership and will be completed my Ed. D. by the Winter of 2012. I also can play more Bob Dylan songs that you can name.

I'll be sure to write you off going forward...

Now, back to the discussion...

I did not mean to offend. I have never heard "era" used regarding music that for me is "relatively current" meaning I listen to all types of music of an artist and don't catagorize the change in style. Personally I use "era" as it relates to genre.

Congratulations on your accomplishments professionally! May the next two years go smoothly and quickly.

Again, I did not mean to offend.

I just straight-up love Bob - always have ... always will. And he put out some amazing music in the 70's ...

A saxophone someplace far off played
As she was walking by the arcade.
As the light bust through a beat-up shade where he was waking up,
She dropped a coin into the cup of a blind man at the gate
And forgot about a simple twist of fate.

Slow Train Coming has been a Christmas tradition at my house for 30 years. Played while I wrap packages.

"Precious Angel" is my favorite song. Also "When You Gonna Wake Up."

It's funny, on Bob Dylan's 1984 tour (his first non-Born Again tour) he performed "When You Gonna Wake Up" and actually replaced the sacred lyrics with secular ones!! I don't know of any other instance where someone would do that to their own sacred song.

The follow up Born Again LP "Saved" wasn't as well received as "Slow Train Coming" but does contain some good songs. My favorites are COVENANT WOMAN, WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU and SAVING GRACE.

The third and final Born Again album has Dylan embracing secular music again somewhat such as the song "Lenny Bruce." This isn't my favorite album but the song "Every Grain of Sand" is a classic.


The Nice Price!!


Lenny Bruce (RIP)
