The Bob & Miles Birthday Show
Miles  Bob
"Blonde On Blonde" by Bob Dylan (1966)
Bob Dylan "Blonde On Blonde"  1966 (USA)
Bob's most famous and acclaimed album is our CAOTW for his 78th(!) birthday special. (This week is also the 93rd anniversary of Miles Davis' birth.) Blonde on Blonde is only about my 5th or 6th favorite Dylan album at best, and I generally try not to CAOTW-ize the most obvious and famous albums such as this. But  this is the 7th time I've added one of Bob's albums to this hall of classics so I guess I gotta do it (I might have to do his notorious Self Portrait for the next one!) Anyway, if you know anything about Dylan you already know about this album. If not, this is Bob's second fully electric rock / post-folk album with notably surreal (psychedelic?) lyrics and well-written unforgettable catchy tunes that rival what The Beatles were up to at the time. Then Bob crashed his motorcycle, "got back to the land" to recover, and in 1967 started doing simpler (but perhaps even more brialliant and timeless) Americana rock with the backing "Band" he had first hired for Blonde.
