The Pennebaker documentary Don't Look Back rocked my socks. I'm finally starting to appreciate Bob Dylan, but I want to know where to start. My knowledge is somewhat limited, but from what I know, here's how I gather how his albums break down:
Pre-1967: acoustic folky stuff
Post-1967, beginning with Bringing it All Back Home: folk and blues informed rock
early 1980's: Dylan's "saved" period. I hear "Slow Train Comin'" is the best of the lot.
anyone have any opinion on the original recordings versus the recent remasters?
don't know much of the later stuff.
All help is appreciated.
The first person to quote Jack Black in High Fidelity ("You don't own blonde on blonde? It's gonna be OK."), gets a pie in the face.
perhaps I could save up and buy the box set.
