LOVE AND THEFT won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. This Limited edition of LOVE AND THEFT included a bonus disc of 2 previously unreleased recordings from 1961 & 1963. Bob Dylan's career has always been about defying expectations. Accordingly he followed 1997's much-heralded TIME OUT OF MIND with a marked about-face. Where its predecessor was a bleak emotional landscape full of languid atmospheres, existential sentiments, and graveyard vocal delivery, LOVE AND THEFT finds Dylan much more energized and hopeful. Instead of swamp-like textures, we get sharp, cracking bar-band blues, and lissome ballads with a '20s/'30s feel. The old codger has never sounded more spry; after observing that "summer days and summer nights are gone," he follows up with "I know a place where there's still something going on." Elsewhere he's variously hunting bear, standing on a table to make a toast, burning down a house, and starting a new empire. The musical context for all this uproar is informed more heavily by Dylan's earliest Americana roots than anything other than his albums of traditional folk songs. Delta and Chicago blues are templates for many songs, while a few others even more anachronistically suggest a future for Dylan as ghost writer for Leon Redbone. The lyrics themselves are littered with quotes from/references to old blues tunes, but Dylan's classic non-linear structure and wild imagination allow him to transcend his influences even as he assimilates them. Editorial reviews Included in Magnet's 20 Best Albums of 2001. Magnet (12/01/2002) ...Gritty and immediate... CMJ (10/08/2001) ...The most striking thing about the album is Bob's singing, which possesses a ragged, almost sinister authority...but on the old-tyme numbers becomes a nonchalant croon... Mojo (10/01/2001) 4 stars out of 5 - ...A very good album... Q (10/01/2001) 9 out of 10 - ...Astonishing...It is the rare Dylan album recorded with his touring band, and the versatility and sympathy of this outfit...lets them stand proudly next to The Band as his finest accompanists... Spin (11/01/2001) 5 stars out of 5 - ...A stone-cold Dylan classic... Talk about bringing it all back home: Dylan veers into country, ragtime, vaudeville, deep blues, cocktail-lounge corn, the minstrel show and the kind of rockabilly he must have bashed out with his high school band more than forty years ago... Rolling Stone (09/27/2001) Ranked #2 in Mojo's Best [40] Albums of 2001. Mojo (01/01/2002) Ranked #6 Album of the Year in EW's Best of 2001. Entertainment Weekly (12/28/2001) Ranked #4 in Spin's Albums of the Year 2001. Spin (01/01/2002) Ranked #1 in Rolling Stone's Top 10 2001. Rolling Stone (01/03/2002) Ranked #15 in Mojo's 100 Modern Classics -- His surreal verbal collages borrowed imagery from vintage bluesmen and obscure novelists... Mojo
