It's tempting to believe that current set lists reflect Bob's state of mind and/or indicate direction his life is taking.

At the risk of sounding critical, whereas some songs are rather sweet well intended love songs "All or Nothing at All" for instance, for me depicts an ultimatum, which, as far as I can remember, I've not employed myself, but have seen work for others in relationships (i.e. "stop your messing around or I'll leave you.") To me it's sort of like saying, "well if I can't have all of Bob Dylan's albums, I don't to want any! Seems to me, life is often far from ideal and people often prefer to have somebody in their lives, in some capacity, instead of foregoing their company entirely. A matter of personalities I suppose.

Along the same lines "Why Try to Change Me Now" reminds me somewhat of the lyrics of another cover "Take Me As I Am, (Or Let me Go)" from "Self Portrait." Again, it would be lovely if, like a mother's feelings, love for another would be unconditional, (as they sometimes are initially), but eventually we have expectations and often do want some accommodation and it seems from these lyrics that to make any kind of change to please another is too much to ask. Of course, again, the ideal would to be totally accepted AND loved, no matter what.

Just sayin'...

I haven't read so many good reviews about Bob, since long time, and it is perfectly well deserved. :P

I still haven't learned how to get the quotes looks like quotes so this is in referral to what Peggy Day wrote about the song Why try to change me now:

I think you pointed out something important here Peggy Day. I think that all of us that are in a relationship go through changes, and our partners changes too, whether we like to admit it or not. I don't understand the lyrics to this song because I think it is vital to any relationship that people are open for changes.....all we really know is that everything is constantly changing in life, and around us, so all these changes will have a profound effect on us as well.....hopefully the changes are positive, and we evolve and change through these changes. I guess it wo uld be hard to write a song about that though, so I guess we have to settle for: Why try to change me now? It is still a very challenging question and something to dig into.

However, I think it's worth pointing out that if you're not logged in when reading the posts you will not see the 'quote' button.
