Bob Dylan / Planet Waves

A fascinating glimpse into the remarkable artistry of the late great Richard Clare Danko as the bassist carries Dylan and the boys through ramshackle performances of some truly terrific tunes, swooping from upper to lower register with space aplenty to drive a freight train through. Waxed in Los Angeles during the winter of 1973 at a time when both Dylan and The Band’s careers were somewhat stalled Planet Waves emerges as a beautiful wreck of an album.
