In the first eight years of the author’s collection of song material Bob Dylan — “Rough and Rowdy Ways”. Boris Barabanov explains how to listen to the 39th album, live 79-year-old classic.Even before the release of the new album by Bob Dylan, it was clear that he takes first place in the American charts. An important detail in the sales chart CD. Then there are people who still use CD now pre-order them at online stores (plain don’t work, but they left almost) in advance of brought the album in the first place.CD bought by people over forty, and even fifty. And what about the bearers? Here, too, all good. Starting the song from the new album of Bob Dylan’s “Murder Most Foul”, released March 27, was the first in his life song, who led biljanovski chart. However, also not the most important, and Rock Digital Song Sales, that is a list of songs in the style of rock, which are more often downloaded by users. It download and not listening to the stream, and it is also already rather old-fashioned way to discover music. But we are talking about the song, which lasts sixteen minutes and is a lecture about the assassination of John F. Kennedy and a listing of seventy-four favorite songs of Dylan. Not the most obvious song format for any chart.Bob Dylan long and deep in history. Three previous Studio album, Dylan was of his songs were included in the repertoire of Frank Sinatra and pop standards and songs from the movie. “Rough And Rowdy Ways” — the first original Studio material by Bob Dylan for eight years. And it again should be approached, armed with a history book and what is called the Great American Songbook, the great American Songbook. In the first song of the album “I Contain Multitudes” — a reference to Walt Whitman, and Edgar Allan PoE, Anne Frank, The Rolling Stones, “Indiana Jones”, Wes Anderson, William Blake, and old rockabilly and old Jewish tales.Moving on, Dylan weakens intellectual acumen, adding bluesy tension in the song “False Prophet” and says: “I am the first among equals, the second of anyone. The last of the best, rest in the grave.”In “My Own Version Of You” he invites you to the waltz, but the text again draws the listener in. Like Frankenstein, the lyrical hero of the song, creates a monster out of Richard III, Marlon Brando, Julius Caesar, Liberace, Leon Russell and St. Peter. The author (remember, the Nobel prize for literature) throughout the album, like the cards in filing boxes, loops through characters of different eras, not dividing them into real and fictional. Similarly, for him there is no high and low, and Karl Marx in his song goes hand in hand with Sigmund Freud Alem Pacino. This technique, familiar to fans of another classic “Desolation Row” in 1965. But in 2020 the creature, collected from many, almost EDIstunna hope Dylan wanting to get the answers and unresolved questions of existence.In the next song “I’ve Made Up My Mind To Give Myself To You” Dylan again taking on the imaginary emotional console mixer with the words “mind” and adds “lyricism”. On the threshold of the ninth of a dozen he is still able to heal your voice the most severe depression. Next comes the “Black Rider” — again the inevitability of death and a desperate attempt to delay the inevitable. Referring to the title the Black Rider, Dylan sings: “I don’t want to fight, at least not today. Go home to your wife, enough to get me” almost “black Raven, I’m not yours.”Then again Blues — tribute to Mississippi legend Jimmy reed “Jimmy Reed Goodbye”. Hereinafter — the “Mother of Muses”, full of historical characters design, celebrating a host of great generals, including Georgy Zhukov. Without them, according to Dylan, there would be no heroes peaceful life such as Elvis Presley and Martin Luther king. “Crossing The Rubicon” is a hypnotizing sexy Blues, the hero of which reports that “three miles from purgatory, and step away from the beyond,” he “prayed at the cross, kissed the girls and crossed the Rubicon”. Character song “Key West (Philosopher Pirate)” — the pirate-philosopher, reminiscing before his death, his entire life as a road through the Florida Keys in the company of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. And only now, on the album it is the turn of the epic “Murder Most Foul”, which in the context of all that we have lived with the author, does not seem neither long nor complicated nor strange.
