Bob Dylan's first time

Bob Dylan’s first time

On February 16, 1974, fifty years ago, Bob Dylan the album reached number one on the sales charts in the United States for the first time “Planet Waves”. A feat that he had previously failed to achieve with albums defined as epochal “Bringing It All Back Home”, “Highway 61 Revisited” (read the review here) or “Blonde on Blonde” (read it here review).

“Planet Waves” (read its story here) was released just a month before reaching the top of the American charts, on January 17, 1974. In the album alongside Dylan she The Band: Robbie Robertson (guitar), Rick Danko (Bass), Richard Manuel (piano), Levon Helm (battery) e Garth Hudson (keyboards).
