Product Description

Product Description

Out-of-prnt in the US. Sony.

Dylan had been working with The Band occasionally for almost ten years by the time Planet Waves, the first official release with the group backing him, was released in 1974. It's a solid effort with a brace of great songs ("Forever Young," "Something There Is About You"), even if the playing never rises to the fire and energy of The Basement Tapes or some of the combination's legendary live bootlegs. As he wrote Planet Waves, Dylan was at the beginning of the emotional powerslide that would result in Blood on the Tracks, so the songs veer from the bitterness of "Dirge" to the sweet hope of "Wedding Song." --Michael Ruby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1 This set was Bob’s 14th studio release and his first No. 1 album on Billboard Album Chart. He was supported on the album by longtime collaborators the Band, with whom he embarked on a major reunion tour (documented on the live album Before the Flood) following its release. There were two versions of “Forever Young”, the first recorded on November 8, 1974, a slow, but riveting and powerful performance. Bob was On November 14, 1974, a new version of “Forever Young” was created by Bob and the Band. It was of interest to note that producer, Bob Fraboni also convinced Dylan to do his first vocal overdubs for the album. While the Band had three regular vocalists in Richard Manuel, Rick Danko, and Helm, none of them sing on the album.

"Planet Waves" seems to have slipped into black hole between Dylan's late 60s oddities ("Self Portrait," "Nashville Skyline") and his so-called return to form with "Blood on the Tracks." However, "Planet Waves" is a teriffic CD, the ONLY studio album recorded with the Band, and has a lot more to recommend it than the perennial favorite "Forever Young." Indeed, it sounds like a Band record, in the best possible way, with Dylan integrating working seamlessly with the band as they had been doing for a number years--just not on record.
The songs are also strong, from the opener, "On a Night Like This" to the "Wedding Song"--one of Dylan's most heartfelt. A true winner. If there is any detraction it's this: did he have to record "Forever Young" twice?

PLANET WAVES is an important album in Dylan's career, thought not necessarily an essential purchase for any one but the fans of the man. While his best albums are undeniably important records in the pantheon of the rock canon, PLANET WAVES is not among that elite. But first, let's review examine Dylan's history around this time.

Dylan had been fairly quiet since the late 1960s, and while he had released three albums (one, NASHVILLE SKYLINE, with a significant hit, "Lay Lady Lay") SELF PORTRAIT was seen by most as a critical blunder, and while NEW MORNING was hailed as something of a return to form, NM did not capture the wildness and overall sound of his earlier material.

The first major event occurred in 1973, when Dylan was chosen to record a soundtrack for Sam Peckinpah's film PAT GARRET & BILLY THE KID. Not only that, he also got a part in the movie. While the soundtrack was his first recorded work to be released since 1970's NEW MORNING, the soundtrack was largely instrumental, with only four of its ten tracks featuring Dylan singing. Of those four songs, three of those tracks were different versions of the same song, a ballad about Billy the Kid. The only major song to come out of the soundtrack was "Knocking on Heaven's Door", an admittedly great song.

The second major event came when Dylan announced he would be leaving Columbia Records, his label from the beginning of his career, to go to the newly formed Asylum Records.

The third major event, announced very shortly after Dylan jumped ship for Asylum, was the announcement that Bob Dylan would be embarking on his first major tour in eight years. Not only that, Dylan would be touring with The Band, who had been his backing band (known then as The Hawks) on his legendary 1966 world tour.

I discovered this album late, after devouring Bob's greatest albums for years... and must say that it's one of the most under-rated works in his canon. I don't make that assessment based on the songwriting, but on the performances. This may be The Band's finest moment... Robbie Robertson's guitar work, particularly on "Going Going Gone" is a valuable lesson in understatement, in making the instrumentation serve the song. Same with Garth Hudson's majesterial organ and Levon Helm's rock-solid drumming. And Bob's singing is at its peak of expressiveness... it initiates his greatest vocal period, stretching through Blood On the Tracks and the first Rolling Thunder tour. "Tough Mama" is just ultra-funky and drenched with sexual longing. With all the talk of Bob's lyrics and gathering of great musicians, too little attention is paid to the ATMOSPHERE he creates in a studio just by his presence and attitude. "Dirge" is an excellent example of this, as is "Forever Young." It sounds like Bob and The Band have just been touring for months and are chronicling tales of fleeting love on the road, but this wasn't the case-- they wouldn't tour until afterwards, but still manage to convey that mood. The album was recorded quickly and it sounds like it, but in a good way. I like the impulsive and laidback feel of this recording. This remastered version is a nice improvement on the original. Even if you're new to Dylan's catalog, this is a primo purchase.
