It wasn’t always this easy. Before the blogs, before the Idols, before the paparazzi, becoming a music legend involved equal amounts of talent and hard work. An aspiring artist had many roads they could choose to walk down, but selecting the right one was essential. For young Robert Zimmerman, that long road led from Hibbing, Minnesota to Greenwich Village, where, recast as Bob Dylan, he began working on his craft in earnest. His journey from Woody Guthrie acolyte to “voice of a generation” seems incredibly rapid in retrospect but that was the tenor of those changing times. Along the way, he inspired millions, infuriated many, went electric and became both “Judas” and hero. He also became the single most influential figure in the history of rock. In other words, he became a legend.
In celebration of 70 years of a singular artistic vision, Sundazed Music is proud to present eleven essential Bob Dylan albums. Not merely building blocks, these are cornerstones of the rock genre and must-have selections for any well-stocked personal music library. All titles are painstakingly remastered from the absolute original analog session tapes, nine of them in miraculous mono! Most importantly, each of these albums chronicles a key chapter in an unparalleled career that is still unfolding and continues to find new converts every day. After you’ve been exposed to the “thin, wild mercury sound” of Bob Dylan’s timeless music, there is only one question left to ask:
How does it feel?
