Yet despite his comic flair, Bob Dylan has, for one so young, a curious preoccupation with songs about death. Although he is rarely inarticulate, Dylan can't explain the attraction of these songs, beyond the power and emotional wallop they give him, and which he passes on to his listeners. It may be that three years ago, when a serious illness struck him, that he got an indelible insight into what those death-haunted blues men were singing about. Ending this album is the surging power and tragedy of Blind Lemon Jefferson's blues - "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean. The poignance and passion of this simple song reveals both the country blues tradition - and its newest voice, Bob Dylan - at their very finest. Mr. Dylan is vague about his antecedents and birthplace, but it matters less where he has been than where he is going, and that would seem to be straight up.
Bob Dylan has had a strict no photos policy at his concerts for years, but that’s rarely stopped fans from taking our their cellphones and trying to snap a few images before security swarms. But on Tuesday night at a show in Vienna, Austria, he finally reached his boiling point when he stopped singing Blowin’ in the Wind after one verse to admonish the audience. Take pictures or don’t take pictures, he barked. We can either play or we can pose. The incident marked the first time that Dylan had spoken to the crowd in some time. Audiences used to only hear his speaking voice when he introduced the band, but he stopped doing even that about two years ago. Before most shows, audiences are informed that photographs are not allowed. At New York’s Beacon Theater last year, ushers roamed the aisles with flashlights and shined them directly at anyone using a phone.

If Bob Dylan’s second album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, hadn’t done enough to earn him the tag of the voice of his generation, the follow-up solidified it. Released on Jan. 13, 1964, The Times They Are A-Changin’ was the sound of the legendary singer-songwriter coming into his own. Already the darling of the folk scene for Freewheelin’ protest songs like "Blowin’ in the Wind," "Masters of War" and "A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall," Dylan delivered a fresh new batch on his third album. Once again recording with just an acoustic guitar and harmonica, he upped the ante,.
Bob Dylan turns 75 today. It's peerless here, as it always has been. Perhaps because we focus on Dylan's amazing songs-or even his enigma-we've all fallen into the trap over the years that Dylan isn't a great singer. Among the vast scope of Dylan's recorded output are plenty of examples of his vocal gifts, laying bare the myth that he's been reduced to nothing more than an unintelligible croak. But perhaps the clearest example, and the one that's most often overlooked, are his performances during his "Gospel Years" in the late-1970s, beginning on 1978's Street Legal and continuing on 1979's Slow Train Coming and 1980's Saved, respectively, and the many amazing bootlegs circulating from that era.
