Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home (1965)

Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home (1965), SACD

  "Bringing It All Back Home" was Dylan's first album in electric style and is one of the album that was there for the social change! 

   It's easy to overlook this album I suppose today considering it was recorded over 40 years ago.  But way back then this album was really a "spokesperson album" of social dischord.  But let's not get into the significance of this album again as this has been discussed already to death!

     However yes times are a changin' BUT this album is still a groovy ditty.   The dawn on modern rock and roll was upon us ....the Bealtes were moving from "I wanna hold your hand" to "Eleanor Rigby" and Dylan was bringing a more electric sound into his music.  The music was changing......and so too were the times......
   "Bringing It All Back Home" also contains one of my favourite Dylan tunes "Mr. Tambourine Man" which of course years later The Byrds really made famous.  
     Like "Freewheelin", this SACD remaster from Sony (2003) is exceptional and it sounds like Dylan is in my music room when I play this album.
  Another album that you simply MUST hear !
