4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on July 22 2006
Format: Audio CD
Dylan's move into country was wise and apt, just right for the times. The title track is a legend allegedly about a famous ancestor of the obscure singer-songwriter Tim Hardin. The awesome I Dreamt I Saw St. Augustine is spiritual and moving, All Along The Watchtower has a surreal edge to it and The Drifter's Escape is an interesting story song.

Dear Landlord fits the country style well, I Pity The Poor Immigrant is a touching protest song and I'll Be Your Baby Tonight is catchy country-pop, as proved by the many cover versions. Speaking of which, I first heard many of these classics via other artists' interpretations, e.g. Jimi Hendrix who made a psychedelic anthem of All Along The Watchtower and Joan Baez' splendid versions of St Augustine and I Pity The Poor Immigrant.

It's risky to try rating Dylan's individual albums, but John Wesley Harding is certainly amongst his five best as it is so consistently great as regards the quality of the compositions, the performance and the mastery of the country style. This memorable work with its haunting songs has stood the test of time very well.

This is one of those albums that certifies Dylan as the ultimate storyteller, able to step over the fickle fashions of the time, the Rolling Stones and the Beatles were doing fine at the time, and here he showcases his incredible ability to keep in touch with the common man and his heroes. John Wesley Harding is a haunting song loosely based upon John Wesley Hardin...one of the hardest outlaws of the nineteenth century and yet essentially a man of honor. Frankie Lee and Judas Priest...two more unlikely and enigmatic characters would be hard to find. I have listened to the song since 1967 and I am still not sure what it's about!! Dear Landlord speaks for renters everywhere...the song of the common man? Which segues into I Am a Lonesome Hobo...Dylanesque humor. All Along The Watchtower is a classic in it's own right although I suspect that Hendrix placed it there. This is one of my favourite Dylan albums and marks a time in my youth for sure, and certainly marks an important statement in Dylan's career. It is probably one of the easiest Dylan albums to listen to and runs through delightfully.

One of Dylan's most revealing albums, JOHN WESLEY HARDING, as most of Dylan's albums, are more fully appreciated when taken in context of the time period in which it was recorded and its relationship to Dylan's other LPs.

To give a brief history recap, psychedelic songs were the major movement going on at the time. Dylan himself had been covering some wild material on his electric trilogy, creating some of the most memorable excursions into surreal territory that rock has ever produced. Bob Dylan was leading everybody else into a bold new place artistically. Then something happened.

To put it accurately, a motorcycle accident happened.

And something else happened.

Dylan, who had such a prominent place in this movement, was suddenly gone. No one really knew what happened. Dylan holed himself up with The Band at Big Pink and began jamming daily, forging the now legendary Basement Tape sessions, of which the majority still remains unreleased. Yet officially no word came from the Dylan camp, save in the form of a very skimpy "Greatest Hits" collection.

Then, Dec 27, 1967, this album quietly went out into the stores. Following BLONDE ON BLONDE, this album blew most people out of the water. Not only did Dylan not issue a psychedelic album, he issued something that sounded almost like country. Even the evil Rolling Stones did psychedelic material in 1967, and The Beatles, with their epochal SGT. PEPPER release, became the spokespersons for that has been termed as the "Summer of Love," although personally I think that is people mythologising that era.

The album itself? Dylan once again proved no one could touch him in the 1960s.

This was one of the very first records I ever purchased. Still have it on vinyl but have since purchased on CD. It established my love for Dylan which has included multiple purchases of his music both before and after. How many artists have covered his "All Along The Watchtower" on this album? That kind of says it all.
