Written towards the very end of his life, the song sounds like it was written years earlier, and it certainly has the same feel as many of the compositions on Hendrix’s debut, Are You Experienced?. Of course, Hendrix’s guitar work is inspired, but it doesn’t draw attention away from what is essentially a brilliantly crafted song."

Infidels

  (Item #: dylaninfid_1801_1806) 

Our Price: $79.99

  • This copy plays on relatively quiet vinyl, Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus throughout
  • 4 Stars: "Infidels was the first secular record Bob Dylan recorded since Street Legal, and it's far more like a classicist Dylan album than that one, filled with songs that are evocative in their imagery and direct in their approach ... its writing is closer to Dylan's peak of the mid-'70s, and some of the songs here... are minor classics, capturing him reviving his sense of social consciousness and his gift for poetic, elegant love songs."
