Label: Mobile Fidelity

Genre: Rock

Dylan's Second 1964 Album Expands Songwriting Themes and Adds Levity Wider Grooves, Superior Sound: Mobile Fidelity's 45RPM Edition The Last Word in Analog Fidelity Recorded in One Day: Whimsical Feel, Surrealist Lyrics, On-the-Fly Fluidness Grace the Bard's Loosest 1960s Effort Includes 'I Shall Be Free No. 10, ' 'It Ain't Me Babe, ' 'My Back Pages, ' 'Chimes of Freedom' The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home, Blonde on Blonde, Blood on the Tracks, and The Basement Tapes Also Available from Mobile Fidelity The ever-evasive Bob Dylan never explicitly stated exactly what represented the 'another side' of himself referenced in the title to his second 1964 record. Yet the whimsical moods, hallucinogenic prose, humorous angles, transparent mistakes, and noncommittal themes give a pretty clear idea at what the Bard hinted as he emerged from being labeled as a reluctant generation spokesperson and folk savior after releasing two highly intellectual, socially pioneering sets replete with protest songs. Dylan needed to take a breath, step back from the drama, and reevaluate his surroundings. Another Side of Bob Dylan is all that and more. As part of it's Bob Dylan catalog restoration series, Mobile Fidelity is thoroughly humbled to have the privilege of mastering the iconic LP from the original master tapes and pressing it on 45RPM LPs at RTI. The end result is the very finest, most transparent analog stereo edition of Another Side of Bob Dylan ever produced. Be there as the Minnesota native spends the evening of June 9, 1964 in Columbia's Studio A and, displaying an openness he'd never before revealed in a formal environment, lays down the songs that compromise his fourth album. Featuring minimal editing, Another Side of Bob Dylan is naked, truthful, and whimsical. Mobile Fidelity's reissue illuminates the artist's condition - he laughs in the midst of songs, experiences a few false starts, hits a couple of bum notes, occasionally sings as if he's stumbling down a Manhattan sidewalk after having one too many at a smoky pub, prizes rawness over perfection - with microscopic accuracy. Indeed, Dylan's slightly woozy and completely playful state related to his having downed a handful of bottles of Beaujolais during the sessions. The uninhibited joie de vive is discernable in the rattling piano lines on 'Black Crow Blues, ' seemingly subconscious ramble of the hysterical folk rhyming of 'Motorpsycho Nightmare, ' bluesy dream sequencing throughout 'I Don't Believe You, ' and intentionally out-of-tune yodeling during 'All I Really Want to Do.' On a majority of the prized set, Dylan let's his guard down, but does so in clever manners that speak to his surrealist imagination and biting wit. He possesses the rare ability to make planned strategies appear spontaneous, to challenge audiences with stinting wordplay and minimalist melodies that provide a deceptive false security. And so the apparently autobiographical and self-aware 'My Back Pages, ' one of the earliest examples of Dylan's immersion into symbolist prose and abstract metaphor, remains controversial for it's on-the-surface denouncement of his earlier condemnations of social institutions and injustices. Peeled back, the tune is a brilliant release - an essential escape hatch for Dylan to both relieve himself of unneeded pressures and distance himself from pundits. As an indelible piece of art, it succeeds in masquerading obvious meaning while simultaneously forcing listeners to question their own actions. Quintessential Dylan. As is the trifecta of relationship-themed compositions that closes the record, as well as the eternal 'Chimes of Freedom, ' the standard that journalist Paul Williams dubbed Dylan's 'Sermon on the Mount.' It's inseparable conjunction of apocalyptic imagery, personal emotion, allusive lyricism, balladic alliteration, and inclusive sympathy signaled that, having already eviscerated the rules associated with pop and folk music, Dylan had just begun his assault on our consciousness, making Another Side of Bob Dylan that much more mysterious, unequivocal, and requisite. Given the sonic and artistic merit of this album, we anticipate huge demand. 1/2' / 30 IPS analog remix master to DSD 64 to analog console to lathe Track Listing:1. All I Really Want to Do2.
