BOB DYLAN-BEST OF THE MONO RECORDINGS-“DYLAN SINGS IN YOUR LIVING ROOM”-CD REVIEW JOHN EMMS

 

BOB DYLAN is singing in my living room, and we are having a blast!!!

Oh yes Bob had reason to smile when he started writing and recording.  He and a few close knit friends and musicians knew deep down in their guts these were important songs. With these mono recordings IT’S LIKE YOUR HEARING DYLAN FOR THE FIRST TIME.

There is a startling clarity to his voice and yes those lyrics are now even more narrative. It’s hard to put your finger on it but these recordings sound like VINYL but without the pops and crackles.

On I Want You and Rainy Day Women both recorded in 1966 on Blonde on Blonde it sounds like the band is beside you.

 Mr Tamburine Man, Tombstone Blues, and Blowin’ In The Wind sound like they were recorded yesterday AND YOU WERE AT THE SESSIONS.

Later I hope to REVIEW the entire 8 album MONO BOX SET. Look for my review of THE WITMARK DEMOS-BY BOB DYLAN-1962-1964 

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist, radio show host, and musician
