Besides, the classic songs of disdain are so absolutely personal, so one-against-one with no one else seriously involved that Dylan can deliver it and we can go along with it.

It seems that Dylan quickly realised this too. He has never performed Plain D, although he did apparently rehearse it in , but the performances never materialised. But maybe part of the problem also is that here Dylan was working too closely with what had gone before. That he certainly did, but what we got was not an improvement.

The week before Easter, the day being fair The sun shining brightly, cold frost in the air I went into the forest some flowers to find there And there I did pick my love a posy. When I saw my love to the church go With bridesmen and bridesmaids she made a fine show And I followed on with my heart full of woe To see my love wed to another. And when I saw my love sit down to meat I sat down beside her but nothing could eat I thought her sweet company better than meat Although she was tied to another.

Now that totally works, even years later, because the singer has a vision that is consistent throughout. And that is what songs need. Songs are short and intense, there simply is no room for multi-sided visions. But as soon as we get into the accusations it begins to slip away.

Yet the whimsical moods, hallucinogenic prose, humorous angles, transparent mistakes, and noncommittal themes give a pretty clear idea at what the Bard hinted as he emerged from being labeled as a reluctant generation spokesperson and folk savior after releasing two highly intellectual, socially pioneering sets replete with protest songs. Dylan needed to take a breath, step back from the drama, and reevaluate his surroundings. Experienced in mono, Another Side of Bob Dylan is all that and more.

  6. Ballad in Plain D is one of them. Plain D is a baldly autobiographical song, written about his painful breakup with Suze Rotolo and the role her sister Carla supposedly played in the event.

If Dylan's previous album The Times They Are A-Changin' was a bit too literal and focused on current events, Another Side indulges Dylan's more mythic and expansive side, making more rumor for the humor that would explode when Dylan formed a band.

  8. Nov 29,  · Like yourself Another Side was given to me 50 years ago, my first Dylan LP. I loved it. But the two most important songs were Chimes and Plain D.
