Updates and new analysis

We’re currently looking at the themes that emerge from Bob’s lyrics in the songs written in 1961 and 1962.  As a result some of the reviews from that period are being changed, videos that no longer work are being removed and where possible replaced, plus new videos added.    New articles include

Elsewhere:  With the addition of a couple of tracks from the recordings made by Bob in 1985 and which never made it beyond the studio exploration stage we have now completed the task we set out to undertake over 10 years ago.   A review of every single song that Bob Dylan composed or co-composed, of which there is a recording available either on a record or on the internet.

Of course there might be something else that Bob composed or co-composed, and if we find it we’ll do a review.  If you know about a missing song that we can listen to, we’ll do a review, and give you a most fulsome credit.

You can see a list of the songs with links to the reviews in alphabetical order and we have also put them in chronological order (as far as is possible given the often contradictory information available – but do note we try and list songs in the order written, not in the order recorded or released.)
