Before The Flood (Mobile Fidelity)
Label: Mobile Fidelity
Availability: In stock
The live reunion of Bob Dylan and The Band during 1973-74 yielded one of the decade’s most celebrated, dynamic, and astonishing tours. Captured on Before the Flood, the results portray the two artists’ shared chemistry as well as Dylan’s instinctive ability to challenge audiences, his group, and himself via inventive rearrangements of classics that simultaneously ward off nostalgia and renew with meaning. Said by noted critic Robert Christgau to be “at its best, [the] craziest and strongest rock and roll ever recorded,” Before the Flood crackles with intensity, relevance, and unhinged performances.
