Bob Dylan sings Full Moon and Empty Arms



In a press release, Dylan said:

It was a real privilege to make this album. I've wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a five-piece band. That's the key to all these performances. We knew these songs extremely well. It was all done live. Maybe one or two takes. No overdubbing. No vocal booths. No headphones. No separate tracking, and, for the most part, mixed as it was recorded. I don't see myself as covering these songs in any way. They've been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day.

Shadows in the Night:
01 I'm a Fool to Want You
02 The Night We Called It a Day
03 Stay With Me
04 Autumn Leaves
05 Why Try to Change Me Now
06 Some Enchanted Evening
07 Full Moon and Empty Arms
08 Where Are You?
09 What'll I Do
10 That Lucky Old Sun

4. The shame is Dylan really used his voice well on his songs early on.

6. Dylan is 72 now.

None of us sound the way we did back when. I truly enjoyed listening to Dylan when he was younger.

7. 73 to be precise. And still touring.

 

But he lost his voice nearly 40 years ago.

Blood on the Tracks was the last whole album that grabbed me. He still produced a lot of good songs but that album is a masterpiece.

2. Music stolen from Sergei Rachmaninoff by the songwriter.

 

True.

Not bad, and I am surprised. The Sinatra songbook doesn't strike me as prime Dylan cover fodder.

5. It'll be interesting to hear what Dylan can do with Sinatra's songs.
