Bob Dylan Greatest Hits

Bob Dylan Greatest Hits
(1967) CBS label UK release.  Original issue with original inner sleeve and glossy cover. This greatest hits compilation is made of songs from Dylan’s first six albums.  This album has two additional songs than the US release as well as a different cover.  I have four Dylan albums in my collection.  All originating from my stepfather’s collection.  He purchased each of his Dylan albums as an Army medic serving during the Vietnam War.  How old they are, who and when they reflect– make these Dylan albums some of my most cherished LPs.

  2. One Of Us Must Know  (4:55)

“Jingle jangle morning” and “she’s a hypnotist collector and you are an antique” and “the sky is now falling under you” and “god knows when you’ll be doing it again” and “the pump don’t work cos the vandals took the handles” and “threw the bums a dime in your prime” and “when you ain’t got nothing you got nothing to lose” and “with her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls” and “They’ll stone you at the breakfast table, they’ll stone you when you are young and able” and so on.

Dylan’s prolific writing can be isolated and appreciated in bits and threads on their own without the melody and instrumentation.  Writing something and experience a loss for words?  Listen to a Dylan album.

Good Morning!  How Are You?

I’m having a jingle jangle morning, thanks for asking…
