Chart-topping 1974 record reunites Dylan with The Band!

Edgy, personal album includes beloved favorites "Forever Young" and "You Angel You"

Bob Dylan's Planet Waves became an event even before the album was released and revealed itself as an understated masterwork. As his first studio recording in nearly four years, the homespun 1974 effort finds Dylan reuniting with The Band. The chemistry is obvious on every song. And the modest, spare production only magnifies the purity of the collaboration.

Recorded in just three days time and recalling the Americana spirit of The Basement Tapes while adding a domesticated edginess, Planet Waves personifies simple charm and scraggly sweetness. Couched in the context of Dylan grappling with the chasm between family life and the road, the effort encompasses myriad moods and contradictions, with tunes ranging from unquestionably devotional to overtly dark. In between, the singer attempts to navigate peace, catharsis, and resolve.
