Released:
Label: Columbia
Rock’s first double album, Blonde on Blonde is the most ambitious of the three legacy-defining titles Dylan released between 1965 and ’66. He marries his swirling, surreal poetry to an utterly innovative fusion of rock and blues, folk and country, that’s as vast as America itself. The songs can be mysterious (“Visions of Johanna”), absurd (“Rainy Day Women #12 & 35”), sarcastic (“Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat”) and downright moving (“Just Like a Woman”). The Nashville session musicians backing Dylan on the bulk of the tunes help ground his freely flowing wordplay and sprawling compositions, ultimately infusing the music with a uniquely “tight but loose” quality. This is especially true of the expansive, side-long closer “Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands.” Dylan would go on to release many more excellent albums, but Blonde on Blonde represents the very peak of his classic phase.
