Product Description

Amazon.ca

Considered an unprecedented magnum opus when it arrived on two records in May of 1966 (1997's Time out of Mind is actually only about a minute shorter), Blonde on Blonde featured Dylan continuing to demonstrate remarkable powers over the course of 14 new numbers. Working in Nashville with session men and a few conscripted recruits (Al Kooper, Robbie Robertson), Dylan continued to bend minds with his warped lyrics and phrasing. Even dashed-off numbers such as "Obviously 5 Believers" and "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" contribute to the crazed, fun-house ambiance. Dylan will never be this wild again. --Steven Stolder

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody must get stoned! May 16 2008
Format:Audio CD
How many unforgettable songs can one little, rock album contain? Rainy day women, Pledging my time, Visions of Johanna, I want you, Leopard-skin pillbox hat, Just like a woman, Temporary like Achilles, and Absolutely sweet Marie are all astonishing songs and you'll never forget any of them. You've never heard anything quite like any of them before.

"Achilles is in your alleyway. He don't want me here he does brag. He's pointing to the sky and he's hungry like a man in drag."

Blonde on Blonde is grounded in the blues and folk. It is a great example of Dylan's abilty to musically and lyrically celebrate the contradiction between the individual and the social group. It is one of those albums that is as enjoyable now as it was when music lovers bought it in the 60's (or 70's or 80's). It never gets old - it was old to start with. If any American pop music from our era lasts (in terms of cultural impact) it will include this record, I bet.

If you are looking for an example of what folks like best about his music, if you are buying the first of what will eventually be a collection of Dylan's best music, or if you want to fill a gap in your music collection that needs a slice of 1960's rock and/or blues then this is an excellent choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars "That Thin, That Wild Mercury Sound..." July 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
What would you need to be to be the greatest album of all-time?
1.You'd need to have a classic opening salvo that sets the tone - and the quality - for what is to follow...
'Rainy Day Women' exudes a good-time feel with its Salvation Army band vibe and its party atmosphere with the whoops and hollers of the session musicians, the interjections of "Yeah!" and "Tell 'em, Bob!" and that harmonica crescendo. This track never fails to whip up the excitement. Especially when you know what is in store on the rest of the album...
'Pledging My Time' has a laid-back feel and a relaxed-sounding Dylan which then leads into 'Visions Of Johanna'. I can't think of a better start to an album.
2.You'd need to have at least one stand-out track that ranks with the very best ever written...
This album has two.
'Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands' was, as I'm sure everyone knows, the entirety of side 4 on this album's initial vinyl release and also the first track laid down by Dylan and his band of the finest Nashville session musicians. By the time it had reached its eighth minute the session men were looking at each other as if to say 'How long is this going to last? What is going on?' This is Dylan's beautifully controlled declaration of love to the woman who would become his wife. "With your mercury mouth in the missionary times/And your eyes like smoke and your prayers like rhymes..." and the question which clearly needs no answer : "Who among them do you think could resist you?" Dylan took some flack later for claiming to have stayed up for days in the Chelsea Hotel writing this for Sara Lowndes when it was easily established that he'd kept the band waiting in the studio through the night whilst he was writing in the basement downstairs before the recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob Dylan's best album May 19 2010
Format:Audio CD
If you're a new fan of Bob Dylan, skip the many greatest hits compilations and buy Blonde on Blonde. Every song is delivered with such perfect, top-knotch, ground-breaking, poetic style. It opens with "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35", a song guaranteed to make you laugh. In the middle of the album comes the humorous "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat", including great guitar riffs and solos played by Dylan. After that comes "Just Like a Woman", a beautiful ballad. The album closes with the lo-o-ong love song, "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands". However, the song that urged me to buy this album was "I Want You". It's no wonder Rolling Stone magazine ranked this the ninth greatest album of all time. Amazon has it for a great price and it came very quickly. The four-page liner notes of the album show pictures of Bob Dylan and credits. Without a doubt, this is the greatest album Bob Dylan ever did.

This is one of those albums that you're supposed to give five stars.
And I almost did.
In fact, "Blonde On Blonde" would be a sure five-star album if it had just been a couple of songs shorter. The superflous John Lennon-knockoff "4th Time Around", "Obviously 5 Believers" and a couple of other songs are...well, not bad, certainly, but they're not great either. And besides, you're not getting anything for your extra four bucks. The remastered SACD isn't significantly better than the previous CD version; if anything the sound is a little bit too shrill at times.
But there is a lot of great music here, remastering or no remastering. The definitive renditions of "Rainy Day Women" and "Most Likely You'll Go Your Way" are the ones found on "Before The Flood", but these orginals are certainly worth having as well, and "Just Like A Woman", "Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again" and the hard-rocking blues "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat" (complete with rough, fiery lead guitar by Dylan himself) are among the very best songs Bob Dylan has ever written.
Most of these songs are superb, in fact, and "Blonde On Blonde" is certainly one of Dylan's lyrical masterpieces, a must-have for anyone who enjoys his electric albums. But there's really no reason to shell out for this SACD version if you can find the previous CD version anywhere.
4 1/2 stars. A classic.

Who could not listen to Bob Dylan and enjoy his music. He is getting more soulful with age and easier to understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands
"Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands" is one of the greatest songs ever, by anyone - period. It took up the entire fourth side when the double album originally came out in 65 / 66. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars When he paints his masterpiece!
This truly is one of the three essential Dylan works (hwy 61 revisited, Blood on the Tracks). It is a double album full of lyrical and musical genius.
