    One of the great pleasures of playing all of these great albums in chronological order is hearing how they relate to one another.

    None of these artists existed in a vacuum. They all listened to each other, whether deliberately by playing each other’s albums, or indirectly, by hearing their music on the radio. In 1965, for example, there is no doubt that Bob Dylan and The Beatles had a profound influence on each other. Through Bob Dylan, The Beatles learned to expand their lyrical palette and started writing songs that were more imagistic rather than literal.

    Bob, on the other hand, saw an entirely different future before him when he heard The Beatles. The folk scene that elevated him to the status of ‘spokesman for a generation’ had lost much of its steam, with the momentum shifting to guitar-based rock and roll. Dylan wasted no time in making the transition. In fact, he changed so quickly that he suffered backlash from the folkies who resisted any sort of change. By electrifying his music and utilizing words as a sort of weapon, Dylan completely changed the face of popular music in one swift and sudden blow. “Bringing It All Back Home” shows a side of Dylan that his traditional fan base could not ever have predicted. He was an artist, and he definitely did not look back.
