Double Album Round & 1st Selection of Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde.
As we have just completed a round of album reviews that were all hip hop and rap, we thought it will be a blast to try a new concept this month. We all came up with some ideas, but an interesting one was double albums. Younger people may not even know what a double album is (or even a single album, for that matter).
Listen to my story of how we came to this concept and as to why I decided to pick Bob Dylan’s Blonde on Blonde album.
Spend the next month with us listening to this album and then come back at the beginning of September 2020 to hear our review show about this album. We will dive into the history of a double album a little more and see if releasing so many tracks at once is a good idea.
Times, they are a changin’
Other albums I considered were:
- The Smashing Pumpkins – ‘Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness’
- Arcade Fire — ‘Reflektor’
- The Clash – ‘London Calling’ (But I’ve already picked a Clash album. Have a listen.)
We have also already reviewed a few double albums by chance. Check out:
The Mothers of Invention: Freak Out
The Allman Brothers Band: Live at Fillmore East
