Bringing-It-All-Back-Home1965: Columbia Records releases Bob Dylan’s fifth studio album, Bringing It All Back HomeFolk purists hate it. On Side One, Dylan is backed by an electric band. Side Two is acoustic but the song lyrics are personal, confessional and not at all connected with cause or protest. In the liner notes, Dylan writes: “my songs’re written with the kettledrum in mind/a touch of any anxious color.” The album peaks at #6 in the U.S., the first of Dylan’s LPs to break into the Top 10. It tops the charts in the U.K., and Track One, Side One, Subterranean Homesick Blues is the first of Dylan’s singles to chart, hitting #39. Track Two, Side One, is a gorgeous little thing called She Belongs to Me.
