Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

This set captures a still-growing Dylan on the edge, just before he makes the jump to rock & roll, continuing to expand the notion of folk music with openhearted, unprecedented compositions and performances like "All I Really Want to Do," "Chimes of Freedom," "My Back Pages," and "It Ain't Me Babe." If Dylan's previous album The Times They Are A-Changin' was a bit too literal and focused on current events, Another Side indulges Dylan's more mythic and expansive side, making more rumor for the humor that would explode when Dylan formed a band. It's just Dylan, guitar, and harmonica here, but Another Side is a rock & roll album without that band. --Jimmy Guterman

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Must Have Indeed June 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
this is, possibly, dylan's most underrated album.
"all i really want to do" is a beautiful song that tells the listener that this album will be different from the previous two, classics. dylan's play with rhyme is new to him and very fun (5/5).
"black crow blues" is a piano driven song. a piano driven song? yes, a piano driven song. it is well executed (5/5).
"spanish harlem incident" is one of my favorite dylan songs (5/5).
"chimes of freedom" is a timeless masterpiece (5/5).
"i shall be free--no. 10" is absolutely hilarious, funniest song ever made (5/5).
"to ramona" is another one of my favorites from dylan (5/5).
"motorpsycho nitemare" is a funny song, but it is my least favorite song on this album (4/5).
"my back pages" is one of dylan's, beyond music, masterpieces, and it's definitely the best song on the album (5/5).
"i don't believe you" is one part funny one part beautiful (5/5).
"ballad in plain d" is a brilliantly written story of a relationship infected by outsiders (5/5).
"it ain't me babe" is an undisputed classic (5/5).
again, this is probably dylan's most underrated album.
dylan obviously thought that this album didn't deserve the crit. it got, just look, closely, at the cover of BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME.

5.0 out of 5 stars His best side, if you ask me. March 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
My dad was born in 49, so I grew up with endless instruction on the music of the 60's. Bob is one of the reigning artists on my oldies play list, and Another Side Of Bob Dylan is my favorite of his.
Every Dylan album seems to sound like it's created in a different room, but always remains in that room for the entire record. On O.S.O.B.D, there is a lot of relationship analysis and his angle constantly provides intelligent mockery of his own self and of society. There's no band or profound vocabulary - just himself and small, meaty words.
All is gone, all is gone; admit it, take flight
I gagged in contradiction, tears blinding my sight
My mind it was mangled; I ran into the night
Leave all of love's ashes behind me
My friends from the prison, they ask onto me
"how good, how good, does it feel to be free?"
and I answer them most mysteriously...
"are birds free from the chains of the skyway?"

5.0 out of 5 stars The prelude to his famous trilogy of 65-66 April 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
"A rock album without electricity" i heard someone said, and he couln't be more right about it. You can't tell just right away; the chords, their aren't folkish (take a look at "I don't beleive you") you could even say these songs have riffs!!!
The minute you put the record on you KNOW that Bob is mocking something (the wanted "anthems" for left politics like "Blowin' in the Wind"?), well, bobby nicely thought the could write their own "anthems".
This album is for him and speaks for him. It's personal, solid (even though it was recorded on one "glorious" night June 9, '64) and really funny (if you listen to "I Shall Be Free N10" or even more "Motorpsycho Nitemare" and you don't laugh you HAVE to go to a doctor).
This album is the result of Bob hangin' out with the beatles (let's face it; the beatles learned more than bob in this meeting, arranged by a "blacklisted journalyst"), and of course the frienship with Allen Ginsberg (a beatnik from the 50's, a sucessor to Kerouac) who help him to write more intropectively, and that's what this album is, bob looking at himself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album minus a few songs Feb. 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is full of excellently human songs. I say human meaning he is a person, one who is not just a leader of the protest he was so popular for but one who breathes, lives, and cries just like any other would. Just look at "It Ain't Me, Babe" in which he doesn't profess the stereotypical undying love for a woman he will always stand by, but decides he can't continue with a woman who expects too much of him despite both of their desire for eachother.
Some tunes ("Chimes of Freedom" and "My Back Pages") may be called protest. I don't understand exactly what he is talking about in the songs, but he sings with such power that it makes you feel his sadness/nostalgia/triumph/etc with every word.
Two songs, "I Shall Be Free No.10" and "Motorpsycho Nitemare" are Bob's humorous side. A lot of people seem to like these, but I am sorry to say that I hate these songs. I don't think they are funny or clever at all, and that is the reason why I gave this album a 4 out of 5.
Overall, this album is an incredible set of songs which capture the man, not the leader in Bob Dylan.

4.0 out of 5 stars The climb to creative freedom Feb. 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
After making his name as the author of "finger pointin' songs" critical of society and its injustices, Bob Dylan expanded his musical palate on his fourth album, and was roundly criticized for betraying the various political and social movements for which he was an unofficial spokesman.
Regarded by many as a sell-out, "Another Side of Bob Dylan" took thirty-five years to reach the half-million sales mark needed for gold certification. Listening to it now, one gets the impression that Dylan wasn't turning a blind eye to the troubles of the world, but fighting for his own artistic survival.
"Now, I'm liberal, but to a degree," he writes, "I want ev'rybody to be free."
With this album, Dylan claims his freedom by traveling wherever his inspiration takes him. If he doesn't tackle traditionally political matters as obviously as he did on "Freewheelin'" and "The Times They Are A Changing," he addresses them more obliquely in the epic "Chimes of Freedom." But the supposed "love song," the classic "It Ain't Me, Babe," could very well be the most political statement Dylan makes here. In lyrics as scathing as they are remorseful, he rejects the heroic, self-sacrificing role required of lovers in most popular songs, but also seems to be rejecting any role, including that of political activist, that he did not choose himself.
The album's masterpiece, "My Back Pages," hints at the more intensely personal and individualistic direction his music would soon take. Less admirable but certainly noteworthy is "Ballad in Plain D." More of a poison pen letter than a song, this is Dylan at his most vicious and personal. A vengeful song whose targets are only too obvious to anyone who's read a Dylan bio, it's not surprising that he later expressed regret at having written it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blisters
Just reading the song titles aloud gives one a sense of the superior genius at work here. There is no dross. There is no escape. There is only peaceful melanclolia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Transitional album
All right, the title of my review is a bit silly -- all of Dylan's albums are transitional in one way or another, or at least all those i've heard, which is a couple dozen or so. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving out of pure folk and protest
The sound was still pure folk, but the songs were becoming more personal and less political. A transitional album that set the tone for his electric phase. Read more
