Desire (Bob Dylan album). Dylan's idea of forming his own band, who would later be known as the Rolling Thunder Revue, came when he saw Patti Smith and her group play at The Other End (formerly, and currently renamed The Bitter End) on June 26, 1975. Smith had yet to record an album, but she was already attracting a lot of attention from the music press and industry. According to Clinton Heylin, these were her first shows with drummer Jay Dee Daugherty, the culmination of four years spent "compiling a unique rock & roll sound".
Bob Dylan's 1974 album, Blood on the Tracks, reminded the world that Dylan was a songwriter without peer. On his next album, he decided to experiment by taking on a co-writer, theater director Jacques Levy. While the songs on Blood on the Tracks were highly personal, these new songs were largely about characters, both real and imagined. In a 1978 interview with Playboy, Bob Dylan was asked if he hears songs in his head before he records them. The closest I ever got to the sound I hear in my mind was on individual bands in the Blonde on Blonde album," he said. It's that thin, that wild mercury sound. It's metallic and bright gold, with whatever that conjures up.
