Bob Dylan’s ‘Blonde on Blonde’ (1966) faces a decade of intense competition characterized by the greatest decades of innovative blues and late rock. ‘Blonde on Blonde’ surpassed them all.

Bob Dylan’s seventh studio album is the real deal of classics and masterpieces. This point would be the heyday of his work, reaching incredible excellence in composition and lyrics (increasingly surreal) and chaining immaculate works one after another in an amazing way.

Dylan was pursuing his idea of ​​evolving folk into electric sets, so he went back to work with several of the musicians used in Highway 61 Revisited sessions, and with a new addition, several members of the group The Hawks, who later would become The Band.

Perhaps Dylan’s most original move continues in his masterpiece trilogy (‘Recover all of the ways back’ and ‘Redeveloped Highway 61’), culminating in his masterpiece. From a popular and well-known point of view, he did not achieve the same level of creativity until 1975’s ‘Blood On The Tracks’. In my opinion, his country’s steps were greatly missed.

Music innovation aside, Bob hung on his roots, and folk-inspired rock and roll led the 60’s stature and was the main driver for the album’s songs. ‘The trend of Bob Dylan towards prose poetry has always been a feature of the’ Dillon ‘album and here is the full show. What a gorgeous hymn-perhaps the greatest.

Overall, ‘Blonde on Blonde’ is worthy of music to listen to because it’s close to brilliance. You can listen to the full album below:
