Review of Bob Dylan In The 80’s: Volume One (ATO/Universal Music Canada)

Bob Dylan TribWhile the 60’s and 70’s were astronomically amazing, both critically and commercially, for Bob Dylan, the 80’s weren’t quite as kind to him. Despite being rather prolific throughout the course of the decade, Dylan struggled to maintain his relevancy and his audience. This compilation, which includes contributions from Built To Spill, Craig Finn (The Hold Steady), Blitzen Trapper, Glen Hansard and Deer Tick among others, aims to show audiences that Dylan remained a songwriting force to be reckoned with at a time when he had been written off by so many others.
