Part four of the DYLAN VINYL collection which is a brand-new collection of every single Bob Dylan album on high-quality 180-gram vinyl plus a collectors’ magazine

The album was released just a year after The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, which had solidified Dylan’s reputation as a protest singer. Another Side of Bob Dylan, on the other hand, was more introspective and personal

The album features11 tracks, all of which were written and composed by Dylan. The songs are characterised by their stripped-down arrangements, with Dylan’s voice and guitar at the forefront. The lyrics are also more poetic than his previous work, with Dylan exploring themes of love, loss, and self-discovery

Another Side of Bob Dylan is often considered one of Dylan’s most underrated albums. While it may not have the same cultural impact as some of his other works, it is still a powerful and intimate record that showcases Dylan’s evolution as an artist. From the wistful “To Ramona” to the haunting “Chimes of Freedom,” the album is a testament to Dylan’s enduring talent and influence.

My Top Three

1) All I Really Wanna Do
The lyrics are fun and lighthearted, and the melody is catchy and infectious. The song is a celebration of life and all of the things that make it worth living. It is a reminder that sometimes the simplest things in life are the most important, and that we should never forget to enjoy the little things.

2) It Ain’t Me Babe
The lyrics are a rejection of a romantic relationship, with Dylan insisting that he is not the right person for his partner. The song’s melody is simple and repetitive, but it is the lyrics that really stand out. Dylan’s words are blunt and direct, making it clear that he is not interested in a committed relationship. The song has been covered by many artists over the years, including Johnny Cash and Joan Baez. It remains a popular choice for those who appreciate Dylan’s early work and his unique approach to songwriting.

3) My Back Pages
My Back Pages is a reflective and introspective song that explores the themes of youth, aging, and the passing of time. The lyrics are poetic and philosophical, with Dylan questioning his own beliefs and acknowledging the limitations of his own perspective.
