"You sound like you're having a good old time," a purist Dylan fan is spotted telling the artist in the documentary Don't Look Back just after the release of this, his first (half-) electric album. He certainly does. Updating Chicago blues forms with hilarious, tough lyrics--in fact, all but stealing the meter of Chuck Berry's "Too Much Monkey Business" for "Subterranean Homesick Blues"--on one side, dropping some of his most devastating solo acoustic science ("It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," "Mr. Tambourine Man") on the other, the first of Dylan's two 1965 long-players broke it right down with style, substance, and elegance. --Rickey Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The verdict? Excellent.
Every track gains from remastering. Each song rings with warmth and detail. In the original 1990 CD issue, the instruments are lumped into one muddy, joyless mass of sound. Here, the lead guitar, bass, organ and drums speak are distinct. You can hear actually hear each instrument, each guitar lick, each drumbeat, each bass pattern and keyboard note. When blended together into a simple, but exciting mix, the instruments mesh perfectly with Bob's vocals. In other words, the songs rock.
That's clear from the opening notes of Subterranean Homesick Blues to the blues raunch of Outlaw Blues and Dada juggernaut of Bob Dylan's 15th Dream. The improved sound is also evident on the sublime love songs, She Belongs To Me and Love Minus Zero/No Limit which flow with a newfound grace.
The remastering has wiped the grime off of Dylan's vocals which are now are pungent and warm throughout, especially on the acoustic B-side starting with Mr. Tambourine Man.
It's a cliché, but Dylan has never sounded so good. It used to be chore to listen to the heavily compressed, flat Dylan CDs from the 90s, but now this music is a pleasure, whether on speakers or headphones.Read more ›
By 1965, Bob Dylan had released four albums in the space of three years. The first was a traditional folk album with only two original songs. This was the proving grounds, for the market Dylan aiming for focused mostly on traditional material, not new song-writing The second was Dylan the song-writer, and proved to be one of the 1960s' most important albums. The third, Times They Are, featured Dylan the protest singer. The fourth was Another Side, which moved away from the protest-folk sing to a more surreal method of songwriting. For the protest-movement, it appeared for certain they were about to lose Dylan as a member of the movement.
When Dylan released BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME, he made it quite clear that not only was he distancing himself from the whole protest-folk movement, he was plugging in and turning on. While in ensuing years this decision has become the stuff of rock and roll legend and mythology, it should be noted this was a tremendously risky direction at the time. If Dylan didn't have the material to back his decision, he could fall flat on his face and his career could be over. Dylan was making a gamble that he could transition to a new fanbase - a very difficult move to pull off for any pop star. Fortunately, Dylan not only had the songs to back his decision, he crafted some of the most enduring music in rock history.
Dylan went electric on this album, but only for half of it, leaving the second half as acoustic.Read more ›
Thank goodness the remastering process has given us this revelatory new recording of such a classic. The new clarity of the sound allows the deceptively simple complexity of the instrumentation on the album to shine, and Dylan's voice is shocking. He doesn't just deliver the lyrics--he's actually singing! Many Dylan recordings did his work, and his voice, little justice, but the original transfer of Bringing It All Back Home was among the worst. If you only buy one of the 15 new remastered hybrid super audio CDs, this is the one to get. From the subversive opening notes of "Subterranean Homesick Blues" to the quiet closing strains of "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," this album is a gem not only of artistic genius but of the power of a dedicated remastering effort.
He starts this TOUR DE FORCE out with Subterranean Homesick Blues, which he delivers a jaunty and non-stop narrative that both amuses and entrances the listener. This song is still in a class by itself, and nobody has even come close to writing something like it!
The second song, She Belongs To Me, is a slower and more introspective tune, which lures the listener into it, in a relaxing manner with its rich and luxurious texture.
The third cut is the wonderful Maggie's Farm, and this infectious and joyful romp manages to get the listeners attention, for it's Bob at his acerbic best!
Love Minus Zero/No Limit is another slower and more reflective ballad, where the fantastic orchestration backing Bob, manages to fill out the song in a understated and extremely tasteful manner.Read more ›
