Can one really talk of a Bob Dylan come back? He had after all been touring excessively during the last ten years and released a number of records. Still, it seemed so long since we heard a contemporary Bob Dylan song. Then, along came 1997, and suddenly Bob Dylan had a media presence unlike almost anything else before, at least since the previous come back in 1974 and the tour with The Band. Of course, a heart attack (at least that was what it seemed to be initially) may not be the ideal way to start a come back, but combined with a new album packed with strong new songs that's what it in fact turned out to be! It led to a number of awards topped by three Grammies and into a new vital decade of The Never-Ending Tour.
