2015 Stereo ‘Sony Legacy’ vinyl reissue of groundbreaking 1965 album featuring ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’. Bob’s first foray into electric rock may had alienated his diehard folkie fans, but it changed popular music forever.
Howls of rage greeted Bob Dylan as he presented the world with rock music–he was roundly booed at both the Newport Folk Festival and the Royal Albert Hall. Yet here is one of those moments of cross-influence that changed the course of popular music. Bringing It All Back Home gave Dylan an audience on a plate; it was a massive breakthrough. An album of two different sides, acoustic (his past) and electric (his future), it contains milestones in the blues-rockers “Maggie’s Farm” and “Subterranean Home Sick Blues,” the future Byrds hit “Mr. Tambourine Man,” and the transcendently poetic “It’s Alright, Ma.” You can debate the “is it folk or is it rock” argument forever. It’s merely Dylan at one of his many peaks. Includes liner notes by Bob Dylan.
