Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Bob Dylan (vocals, guitar); Kevin Odegard, Chris Weber (guitar); Buddy Cage (steel guitar); Peter Ostroushko (mandolin); Gregg Inhofer (keyboards); Paul Griffin (organ); Tony Brown, Billy Peterson (bass); Bill Berg (drums); Eric Weissberg & Deliverance.
  • Includes liner notes by Pete Hamill.
  • By the mid-'70s, even Dylan's most ardent supporters began taking his artistic decline for granted. Albums like NEW MORNING and PLANET WAVES were fine works, but lacked the visionary spark of his seminal '60s recordings. At 34 he was already being written off as a has-been. That presumption is what made BLOOD ON THE TRACKS such a glorious sucker-punch of a record.
  • One of Dylan's most mournful efforts, this album, which easily ranks among his best, is full of stories about lost love and the struggle for peace of mind. With a simple, country-flavored backing somewhat akin to NASHVILLE SKYLINE, he recounts shattered love affairs in heart-breaking detail on songs like "Simple Twist Of Fate" and "If You See Her Say Hello." On the vengeful "Idiot Wind" he rails mercilessly against the ignorant and self-obsessed a la "Like A Rolling Stone." The difference here, and the major breakthrough for Dylan, is that by the end of the song, he's lumping himself in with those he excoriates so vehemently.
