Description

Gotta Serve Somebody – The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan is all about redemption. That’s apparent enough in the music, where the struggle between sin and salvation is inherent in the tunes that are interpreted here by a host of superb gospel artists. But in a larger sense, the very existence of this…

    Great songs from Dylan’s frequently overlooked, sometimes reviled. gospel period, featuring fine performances by a selection of excellent singers and musicians. Could have been greatly extended, with many more songs available, but the contents are worth the price of admission.When will we see an official release of Dylan’s remarkable “Live in Toronto,1980” concert? It is doubtless one of his finest shows and well deserving of being rescued from the many poor quality bootlegs available. C’mon Sony, CBS, do the right thing.

    I really like Bob Dylan’s albums that he devoted to faith and God. I know many people find this period of his carreer odd or even annoying but I think it was really courageous of him to write and sing what he felt no matter what people thought – he was and still is his own person!The artists who sing on this film are all terrific musicians. This is one of the best features of this DVD. They also give great commentary on what the songs mean to them which is interesting to hear and gives their renditions of the songs that much more force and intensity.What is not so interesting are some of the historians and writers who comment on Dylan and this period of his career. They try to explain it or justify it etc. I think that the songs and the artists comments would have been sufficient leaving it up to the viewer to decided his or her own opinion on Dylan and these Gospel songs.I do recommend this DVD though highly and I think the CD would also be a great purchase!
