This 1969 release is one of the essential albums for any collection of Dylan's music or for anyone exploring/re-discovering 1960s albums.

Unfortunately, it's also one of the shortest, if not the shortest, albums of Dylan's career; the 10 songs on the CD clock in at just over 27 minutes, total time.

On this album, Dylan went to Nashville (hence the album title) and recorded with some top Nashville sessions players. Johnny Cash also sat in on "Girl From The North Country." So this album has a definite country feel to it.

The hit single from this album was "Lay Lady Lay."

This is a great album. If you're exploring or re-discovering Dylan, this is one of the essential Dylan albums to check out.

(1969 / 10 songs) -- Bob Dylan, tired of being the wicked messenger, writes a series of plain, simple songs which he sings in an uncharacteristically un-nasally voice. The album features a duet with the man-in-black, Johnny Cash, on “Girl From the North Country,” as well as the hit song, “Lay Lady Lay.” Don’t expect to find any deep thought-provoking messages in these lyrics—only songs of love won and lost…and country pie. What else is there, really? Not a long album, but some nice country songs and Dylan’s voice is more pleasant than on any other album he has ever recorded. Play this album for the people who say Dylan can’t sing.

When NASVHILLE SKYLINE came out in 1969, it was a shocking album to a large portion of Dylan's fan base. Never one to be backed into labels and corners, Dylan largely turned his back on the growing political and cultural turmoils of the day, and instead made a simple country album. Another surprising element, not expected at all the public, was how different Dylan's actual voice sounds from the rest of his 1960s output. He is singing in a soft, country croon, in a voice as smooth as good whiskey, and a total departure from his earlier, more nasal singing style. The album was popular and sold well, but Dylan was taken to task over the slight nature of some of the material.

This is the first album in what is known as Dylan's domestic period, which lasted from 1969 to 1975. The subject matter and musical direction Dylan primarily explored during this era was one of domestic and family matters, which makes sense as that was his primary priorities at the time. Ultimately, this period would culminate in the 1975 masterpiece, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.

The songs themselves are simple and direct. Eschewing the complex poetics of his electric trilogy and the socially aware lyrics of his earlier protest music, Dylan instead wrote simple love songs and lyrics much more in line with the country music of the day.

The album itself is very brief, only a mere twenty seven minutes long. This album offers several strong compositions, including the major hits "Lay, Lady, Lay," "Tell Me It Isn't True," and "Tonight I'll Be Staying here with You." "Lay, Lady, Lay" was originally written in 1968 (one of the few Dylan songs written during that year) for inclusion in the rated X film "Midnight Cowboy", but was not completed in time.

This is the perfect release to listen to when you've had a little too much of early Bob. Smooth, mellow and soothing.

I bought this as an LP over 40 years ago, and when I saw it I had to buy it on CD.
