About this album

Another Side of Bob Dylan is Bob Dylan’s fourth studio album, released in by Columbia Records.

Consistent with its title, the album marks a shift away from the more overt, issue-oriented music that Dylan had previously been gravitating toward, dominating his previous LP, The Times They Are A-Changin’. This break from roots prompted sharp criticism from influential figures in the folk community. Sing Out! editor Irwin Silber famously complained that Dylan had “somehow lost touch with people” and was tangled up in “the paraphernalia of fame”. Most critics outside of these circles, however, praised its innovations in songwriting, which would have a tremendous influence on such legendary rock acts as The Beatles.

Despite the major thematic changes, Dylan still performed his songs solo, with and , and even on one song. Another Side of Bob Dylan reached #43 in the US (although it eventually went gold), and peaked at #8 on the UK charts in 1965.

    this album sounds suspiciously like the same side of bob dylan i've seen on every other album... except for that fake joni mitchell style laugh he does sometimes.

    Though this was a while ago, "I'm in love with every track, rare even for a Bob album. " I agree very much with this.
