Über dieses Album

John Wesley Harding ist ein im Dezember 1967 veröffentlichtes Studio-Album des amerikanischen Songwriters Bob Dylan. Nach einer von Rock-Musik geprägten Phase und einer Ruhepause nach einem Motorradunfall zeigt es Dylan musikalisch wieder als Folk-Musiker.

Die Texte auf dem Album sind deutlich durch die Bibel beeinflusst. Das Lied „All Along The Watchtower“ wurde durch die Version von Jimi Hendrix sehr bekannt. Auch von Dylan wird es auf Konzerten in dieser Version gespielt.

Alle Lieder des Albums sind vertonte Gedichte. Dylan hatte sie ursprünglich ohne musikalische Begleitung geschrieben. Aus diesem Grund hat keines der Stücke einen Refrain.

Der Titel des Albums bezieht sich auf den Revolver-Helden John Wesley Hardin. Aus dem Liedtitel „The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest“ bezog die Heavy Metal-Band Judas Priest ihren Namen.

    My long-standing favorite Dylan album. Gone is the overly clever/contrived wordplay that in my view marred some of his earlier albums; in its place are some concise but literate, superficially simple but surprisingly complex/ambiguous lyrics, and instead of the kind of samey blues rock type songs he filled out some of his electric period albums with, he's turning out an encyclopedia of songs in various folk and country forms. Stuff like "All Along the Watchtower" (of course), "As I Went Out One Morning," the title song, and "Drifter's Escape" just blows me away. It's unfortunate that this album basically stands on its own as an era unto itself because this was just a wonderful sound and vibe for Dylan, but the other way of looking at it is that because it's the only album he made like this it's all the more special as a result.

    The Dylan equivalent of a 60's black and white Eastern European art film.

    Where the hell did this album come from? One second Bob is spouting surrealist diatribes and jumbled-up love songs; the next he's digging deep into the New England loam for rainy, earthy, worm-wet party songs; and then here he is, narrating our way through a mesmerizing labyrinth in a [post-?]apocalyptic world and giving us genuinely comforting moral advice about what we should do if we ever find ourselves within it. Which, now and then, we do. (And after all that, we blink and he's off crooning about country pie and domestic bliss.) There's simply nothing like John Wesley Harding: it's a masterpiece and a work of genius in every sense possible, and hell, probably in a bunch of impossible ways too. Plus quite possibly THE crown jewel of album sequencing.

    Never can pick between this, The Times They Are A-Changin' and Blood on the tracks and decide which is my favorite. Might all be tied.

    This is Dylan's best album. Cryptic, subtle. Not one wasted word or wasted note.
