    Do You Mr. Jones?

    I've seen Bob twice, maybe three times... I know i saw  "Dead & Dylan" at J.F.K.Stadium in Philadelphia, back in 1989 ('88?). I may have seen him perform with them as a guest, elsewhere, but "hey, that time of my life is kind of hazy" memory-wise.  Most recently I saw him solo...

    Home, Sick...Blues.

    I remember when I was about 10 years old I was off school because I was unwell, so I was laying on the couch just flicking through the channels, to see what was on the TV so my day could be a little less boring. I turned on some music channel, can't remember what channel it was...

    Bob Dylan Is So Cool

    I have always loved his songs - the harsh reality mixed with great emotion. Life is short, sweet amd sometime hard. Over the last 20 years I have kept on coming back to Dylan (although I have changed a lot since my student days)

    An American Original

    Self Portrait

    I've just been listening to Self Portrait, which many commentators think is one of Bob's worst albums. I must admit that when I first heard it, back in 1970, or whenever it came out, it did come as something of a shock. By then we were all used to albums containing his own...

    I'm 17 And His Music Actually Saved Me

    The first CD I ever bought was a Dylan CD. That was three years ago (almost 4) when I was 13. I fell in love with Bob Dylan's music and that changed my whole life. I know that sounds crazy, but it's true. I had always felt "different" and I was sure I was just "wrong", but Dylan...

    He Can Do No Wrong

    I have loved all his music, from his folk songs to his newer stuff.  I love his voice, he really makes it work for him.  He's basically a poet who happens to make music.  I heard on an audio CD of his book Chronicles that one song that inspired his writing song was...

    Love Him!

    Bob Dylan is amazing. I can't believe what he created and who he influenced. Sometimes I think he's more important than the Beatles! Which is actually hard for me to say. I just wish he really believed in what he wrote. I don't always get that feeling from him when I hear him in...

    Best Dylan Song

    My favorite Dylan song, “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues” is about a guy hanging out in Juarez, Mexico. I assume the song is basically autobiographical and the point of the song is that this is a tough town to navigate, even for a street-wise guy like Dylan, who generally...

    Bob's Theme Time Radio Hour

    I really enjoy having a quality DJ make the selections for my listening pleasure. When Bob Dylan spins on his "Theme Time Radio Hour," he is every bit the master that he is as a singer/songwriter. Thanks for the spin, great one.

    Love Minus Zero / No Limit

    While the song does read as a straight love song to his ideal woman, the other side of it criticizes society for how they don't measure up to his ideal...by carrying roses, making promises, arguing and judging others, etc. at least to me, he wants people to see the selfishness...

    My First Dylan Album

    My first Dylan album was Bob Dylan, his first. I worked at JM Fields, a dime store of the era, and I saw the album in the record rack and, for some reason, I knew I needed to have it. I was a budding folk singer (this was 1962, first job). I loved his guitar style and the way he...

    That's one killer record. It stops you in your tracks and makes you open your mouth wide.  When I first heard this album, I had to give it a second listen to make sure I was hearing what I was hearing.  Then I had to stop because it was so intense. It makes the listener feel...

    All Along The Watchtower, Princess Kept The View....

    His poster with him in his Jewish afro hung on the wall of my psychedelic bedroom of my teenage years. I best like his songs that go on and on, strumming the same chord, his nasal twang singing in a monotone. Then you have to be on 1500 mics of LSD to figure out what he means...
