3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER on March 3 2003
Format: Audio CD
One good thing about writing reviews is the fact that I am often compelled to pick up things I have ignored for a long time. When this album was released, I snatched it up, listened to it a few times, and proceeded to forget about it for some reason. Being less of a Dylan addict at the time, the fact that this album consisted basically of folk music accompanied by impeccable acoustic guitar did not strike me as very significant, and I was slightly disappointed that these songs were all covers. I was not used to this kind of Dylan music, and for that reason I believe this CD failed to captivate me at the time. Listening to it again now, I am amazed by this album's greatness. Acoustic guitar, harmonica, and Dylan's uniquely raspy vocal musings-that's really all Dylan ever needed, and Good As I Been To You is proof that what was true in the 1960s was just as true in the 1990s and will be true until Dylan's greatness is snatched away from this earth.
These songs are all mesmerizing, but Hard Times deserves special attention, as Dylan pours his heart and soul into the song. Arthur McBride is another incredible story-telling saga. Tomorrow Night particularly shows off Dylan's harmonica-playing, and the song's familiarity provides an opening for those seeking to appreciate this impressive album and proves once again that Dylan can in fact sing a love song with great feeling. Don't think that these tracks are all slow and somber anthems, though; a quick listen at Step It Up and Go will show you that Dylan can infuse tons of energy into folk music. Good As I Been To You is Dylan at his most natural, and one can only sit back and revel in the story-telling prowess of one of music's most influential and legendary performers.

i think we can all agree that this is not bob's most renowned work. but nonetheless, it is an album which deserves all forms of praise and appreciation because of it's many timeless aspects. the songs are clever and appealing, each with it's own memorable qualities. many say dylan is an acquired taste, well i believe this is the perfect album to become devoted to.

Funny how so many of those that don't rate this recording highly are comparing Dylan to Dylan versus the music to other music. Dylan has gone through so many phases, styles, sounds, reincarnations, resurrections, vocalizations, life-trips, iterations, visualizations, constipations and emminations that it's folly to rate himself to himself. He's the consumate artist precisely because he does it his way, and his truth to himself is what has made him a transcendent human being. It's the source of what endears so many different kinds of people to his music.
This is not to suggest that everything he's ever done is better than anything ever done by anyone else. Nor can it be said that a person shouldn't have preferences. No, it's just simply better to take each of his works on its own terms. Putting aside preconceived notions makes for greater enjoyment of the listening. Frankly, half the time I have no clue what the heck Dylan's trying to say. And yet the other half, it's like he can read my mind. Or is it that I can read his. And that's what I love about the man -- the range and the rove of his music -- it keeps taking my breath away differently.
And if you have an appreciation for tradional folk and blues, and if you have an appreciation for Bob's approach and voice, then you're going to love this recording. And like me you'll develop a reverence for it. And it will warm you up to life. And you'll get carried away by the mastery of his guitar and harmonica playing combined with his perfect vocal phrasings.
And you will long listen to it. And you will long to hear it again and again. And you will long remember the first time you heard it. And once again you will catch of glimpse of the muse that animates Bob's life. And again you will long to hear it again and again. And you will long call it a masterpiece.
And it is.
A masterpiece.

First: This is Dylan's first release featuring only acoustic guitar as vocal accompaniment (i.e. no band) since Side Two of "Bringing It All Back Home." Second: There are no original Dylan songs on "Good as I Been." Many of the tunes may be somewhat familiar, from "Frankie and Albert" and "Hard Times" to (the throwaway) "Froggie Went A-Courtin'." These two facts should either pique the interest of hardcore Dylan fans ("Hey! Dylan alone with his guitar again--Finally!") or achieve the opposite for those who can't get over his voice (admittedly, there IS a lot to get over on this record). Don't let the unoriginality of the tunes dissuade you--they (generally) are fine songs, and Bob's performances tend to be strong. If you have open ears and a taste for unpolished music, go for it. However, if you're looking for another "It's Alright, Ma" or "Desolation Row," this ain't it.
