Recording sessions began in New York in October with numerous backing musicians, including members of Dylan's live backing band, the Hawks. Though sessions continued until January , they yielded only one track that made it onto the final album—" One of Us Must Know Sooner or Later ". These sessions, augmented by some of Nashville's top session musicians, were more fruitful, and in February and March all the remaining songs for the album were recorded.

Critics often rank Blonde on Blonde as one of the greatest albums of all time. Combining the expertise of Nashville session musicians with a modernist literary sensibility, the album's songs have been described as operating on a grand scale musically, while featuring lyrics one critic called "a unique mixture of the visionary and the colloquial".

The album peaked at number nine on the Billboard chart in the US, where it eventually was certified double platinum, and it reached number three in the UK. After the release of Highway 61 Revisited in August , Dylan set about hiring a touring band. They had come together as a band in Canada, backing American rocker Ronnie Hawkins. Dylan rehearsed with the Hawks in Toronto on September 15, where they were playing a hometown residency at Friar's Club, [5] and on September 24, they made their debut in Austin, Texas.

Three further numbers were attempted, but none progressed into completed songs. Also attempted were two takes of "Medicine Sunday", a song that later evolved into " Temporary Like Achilles ". Dylan spent most of December in California, performing a dozen concerts with his band, and then took a break through the third week in January following the birth of his son Jesse. Around this time, Dylan became disillusioned about using the Hawks in the studio. Dylan was satisfied with "One of Us Must Know"; the January 25 take was released as a single a few weeks later and was subsequently selected for the album.

The musicians added some tentative backing in a rendering biographer Clinton Heylin described as "cursory". A shortage of new material and the slow progress of the sessions contributed to Dylan's decision to cancel three additional recording dates.

I mean, in ten recording sessions, man, we didn't get one song It was the band. But you see, I didn't know that. I didn't want to think that". Recognizing Dylan's dissatisfaction with the progress of the recordings, producer Bob Johnston suggested that they move the sessions to Nashville.

Johnston lived there and had extensive experience working with Nashville session musicians. He recalled how Dylan's manager, Albert Grossman, was hostile to the idea: "Grossman came up to me and said 'If you ever mention Nashville to Dylan again, you're gone.

We got a thing going here'". At Dylan's request, Johnston removed the baffles—partitions separating the musicians so that there was "an ambience fit for an ensemble". Kooper would then teach the tunes to the musicians before Dylan arrived for the sessions. On the first Nashville session, on February 14, Dylan successfully recorded "Visions of Johanna", which he had attempted several times in New York.

Kenny Buttrey recalled, "If you notice that record, that thing after like the second chorus starts building and building like crazy, and everybody's just peaking it up 'cause we thought, Man, this is it This is gonna be the last chorus and we've gotta put everything into it we can. And he played another harmonica solo and went back down to another verse and the dynamics had to drop back down to a verse kind of feel After about ten minutes of this thing we're cracking up at each other, at what we were doing.

I mean, we peaked five minutes ago. Where do we go from here? The next session began similarly—Dylan spent the afternoon writing lyrics, and the session continued into the early hours of February 17, when the musicians began to record " Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again ". After several musical revisions and false starts, the fourteenth take was the version selected for the album. Most accounts of recording Blonde on Blonde , including those by Dylan scholars Clinton Heylin and Michael Gray , agree that there were two blocks of recording sessions: February 14—17 and March 8—10, On that date, Dylan and the musicians recorded the take of " Absolutely Sweet Marie " that Dylan selected for the album.

Historian Sean Wilentz observed that "with the sound of 'Sweet Marie', Blonde on Blonde entered fully and sublimely into what is now considered classic rock and roll". According to Wilentz the final recording session, on March 9—10, produced six songs in 13 hours of studio time. The session atmosphere began to "get giddy" around midnight when Dylan roughed out "Rainy Day Women No.

Dylan replied; "Can you get one? Al Kooper, who played keyboards on every track of Blonde on Blonde , has contested the conventional account that there were two blocks of recording sessions in Nashville.

Charlie McCoy agreed with Kooper's version. Dylan mixed the album in Los Angeles in early April, before he departed on the Australian leg of his world tour. Al Kooper recalled that both the album title, Blonde on Blonde , and song titles arrived during the mixing sessions. Free association and silliness, I'm sure, played a big role.

I don't know who thought of that. I certainly didn't. According to author Andy Gill, by starting his new album with what sounded like "a demented marching-band The enigmatic title came about, Heylin suggests, because Dylan knew a song called "Everybody Must Get Stoned" would be kept off the airwaves.

Heylin links the title to the Book of Proverbs , chapter 27, verse "A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike. Following the good-time fun of "Rainy Day Women No. Gray suggests that "the gulping movements of the melodic phrases" derive from the melody of " Sitting on Top of the World ", recorded by the Mississippi Sheiks in Considered by many critics one of Dylan's masterpieces, [11] [52] [53] "Visions of Johanna" proved difficult to capture on tape.

Heylin places the writing in the fall of , when Dylan was living in the Hotel Chelsea with his wife Sara. Ten weeks later, "Visions of Johanna" fell into place quickly in the Nashville studio. Kooper recalled that he and Robertson had become adept at responding to Dylan's vocal and also singled out Joe South's contribution of "this throbbing Ultimately, for Gill, the song seeks to convey how the artist is compelled to keep striving to pursue some elusive vision of perfection.

When Dylan arrived at the studio on January 25, , he had yet to work out the lyrics and title for what was to become the closing track on Blonde on Blonde ' s first side.

Grandpa died last week And now he's buried in the rocks, But everybody still talks about How badly they were shocked.

But me, I expected it to happen, I knew he'd lost control When he built a fire on main street And shot it full of holes.

Now the senator came down here Showing ev'ryone his gun, Handing out free tickets To the wedding of his son. An' me, I nearly got busted An' wouldn't it be my luck To get caught without a ticket And be discovered beneath a truck. Now the preacher looked so baffled When I asked him why he dressed With twenty pounds of headlines Stapled to his chest.

But he cursed me when I proved it to him, Then I whispered, not even you can hide. You see, you're just like me, I hope you're satisfied. Now the rainman gave me two cures, Then he said, jump right in. The one was texas medicine, The other was just railroad gin. An' like a fool I mixed them An' it strangled up my mind, An' now people just get uglier An' I have no sense of time. When ruthie says come see her In her honky-tonk lagoon, Where I can watch her waltz for free 'neath her panamanian moon.

An' I say, aw come on now, You must know about my debutante. An' she says, your debutante just knows what you need But I know what you want. Now the bricks lay on grand street Where the neon madmen climb. They all fall there so perfectly, It all seems so well timed. An' here I sit so patiently Waiting to find out what price You have to pay to get out of Going through all these things twice. Well, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat Yes, I see you got your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat Well, you must tell me, baby How your head feels under somethin' like that Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat Well, you look so pretty in it Honey, can I jump on it sometime?

Yes, I just wanna see If it's really that expensive kind You know it balances on your head Just like a mattress balances On a bottle of wine Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat Well, if you wanna see the sun rise Honey, I know where We'll go out and see it sometime We'll both just sit there and stare Me with my belt Wrapped around my head And you just sittin' there In your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat Well, I asked the doctor if I could see you It's bad for your health, he said Yes, I disobeyed his orders I came to see you But I found him there instead You know, I don't mind him cheatin' on me But I sure wish he'd take that off his head Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat Well, I see you got a new boyfriend You know, I never seen him before Well, I saw him Makin' love to you You forgot to close the garage door You might think he loves you for your money But I know what he really loves you for It's your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.

Nobody feels any pain Tonight as I stand inside the rain Ev'rybody knows That baby's got new clothes But lately I see her ribbons and her bows Have fallen from her curls. She takes just like a woman, yes, she does She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does And she aches just like a woman But she breaks just like a little girl.

Queen mary, she's my friend Yes, I believe I'll go see her again Nobody has to guess Hat baby can't be blessed Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls. It was raining from the first And I was dying there of thirst So I came in here And your long-time curse hurts But what's worse Is this pain in here I can't stay in here Ain't it clear that? Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do You make love just like a woman, yes, you do Then you ache just like a woman But you break just like a little girl.

You say you love me And you're thinkin' of me But you know you could be wrong You say you told me That you wanna hold me But you know you're not that strong I just can't do what I done before I just can't beg you any more I'm gonna let your pass And I'll go last Then time will tell just who has fell And who's been left behind When you go your way and I go mine.

You say you disturb me And you don't deserve me But you know sometimes you lie You say you're shakin' And you're always achin' But you know how hard you try Sometimes it gets so hard to care It can't be this way ev'rywhere And I'm gonna let you pass Yes, and I'll go last Then time will tell who has fell And who's been left behind When you go your way and I go mine. The judge, he holds a grudge He's gonna call on you But he's badly built And he walks on stilts Watch out he don't fall on you. You say you're sorry For tellin' stories That you know I believe are true You say ya got some Other kinda lover And yes, I belive you do You say my kisses are not like his But this time I'm not gonna tell you why that is I'm just gonna let you pass Yes, and I'll go last Then time will tell who has fell And who's been left behind When you go your way and I go mine.

Standing on your window, honey, Yes, I've been here before. Feeling so harmless, I'm looking at your second door. How come you don't send me no regards? Finally, he called the group together, counted off, and had them follow his lead, driving each chorus higher and higher.

Dylan kept the very first take for the album. Blonde on Blonde peaked at No. Dylan, the President said, redefined "not just what music sounded like, but the message it carried and how it made people feel.

Side Four Is NFG Here's a little something that you may have come across on your own if you've gone through a number of copies of the album, but it's something we've never seen mentioned by anyone else writing about records.

What the best sides of Blonde on Blonde have to offer is not hard to hear: The biggest, most immediate staging in the largest acoustic space The most Tubey Magic, without which you have almost nothing. Forever prized for a unique sound that cultural critic Greil Marcus tagged "the most glamorous record imaginable; listening you [can] see the checkered jester's suit Dylan had worn on stage for the nine previous, furious months," Blonde on Blonde is to music, production, prose, and performance as what hydrogen is to water.

The secret to its inimitable aural character partially stems from Dylan's request in Nashville to producer Bob Johnston to remove the baffles from the studio room, allowing the musicians to interact as well as the music to assume a more organic quality that drifts from one microphone to another. Our reissue captures this ensemble ambience, with echoes, resonation, and some of the most natural timbres you'll ever hear in plain sight.
