CDs and Music - Just The Good Stuff
Bringing It All Back Home by Bob Dylan ranked # 31 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums list.
Bringing It All Back Home by Bob Dylan, released on March 22, 1965.
It has often been described as the first "folk rock" album. The first
side of the LP features Dylan backed by an electified band, while
side two features four solo acoustic songs.
The album is usually reported to be the first Columbia LP release not
to feature a list of the album's songs displayed on the front cover,
a major departure from industry practice.
Bringing It All Back Home reached #6 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart,
the first Dylan LP to break into the US top 10. It also topped the UK
charts later that Spring. "Subterranean Homesick Blues" also became
Dylan's first single to chart in the US, peaking at #39.
One of Dylan's most celebrated albums, Bringing It All Back Home was
soon hailed as one of the greatest albums in rock history. In 1979
Rolling Stone Record Guide, critic Dave Marsh wrote a glowing
appraisal: "By fusing the Chuck Berry beat of the Rolling Stones and
the Beatles with the leftist, folk tradition of the folk revival,
Dylan really had brought it back home, creating a new kind of rock &
roll [...] that made every type of artistic tradition available to
Clinton Heylin later wrote that Bringing It All Back Home was
possibly "the most influential album of its era. Almost everything to
come in contemporary popular song can be found therein."
