Bob Dylan’s New Album “Tempest”

This article was viewed 2,812 times

50 years ago, Bob Dylan released his first album. This month Bob Dylan at the age of 71 releases his 35th album . . . “Tempest”.   While listening to his vocal performance on his single “Duquesne Whistle”, I couldn’t help but think of Righteous Brother’s Bill Medley’s track “Most of All You” in the movie Major League.   However, Bob Dylan’s vocals have a raunchy delivery.   Maybe its old age, too much whiskey, or too many cigarettes . . . but I like it !

As Rolling Stone Reports:
“The video for Bob Dylan’s new single “Duquesne Whistle” initially seems like a Charlie Chaplin-inspired bit of light comedy about a young man trying to impress a woman he sees on the street. But after our hero gets thrown into a van and tied to a chair, things take a shockingly dark turn and the clip begins looking like a deleted scene from Goodfellas.”

We love you Bob Dylan, and welcome back.   Check out the new video:

    Yahoo Music Blog Reports that for the Week Ending Sept 16 :

    “Bob Dylan’s Tempest debuts at #3. Dylan, 71, is the third oldest artist in chart history to land a top five album. Tony Bennett was 85 in September 2011 when he debuted at #1 with Duets II. Frank Sinatra was 78 in December 1993 when he last appeared in the top five (in his lifetime) with Duets.”
