Bob Dylan – Blond on Blond

The double album kicks off with a hypnotizing, tantalizing blues about being stoned and never letup. Musically speaking, Dylan is at his most expansive up to this point of his career. Weaving blues, folk and country, Robbie Robertson of The Band rocked hard the whole way through. Dylan’s lyricism continued to be poetic, inventive and idiosyncratic as ever: “With your mercury mouth in the missionary times / And your eyes like smoke and your prayers like rhymes.”
