There were G#4s on 'All Along the Watchtower" and at least one more song on "John Wesley Harding".

The man's got an abundance of upper 4th octave notes. It's when you go past G4 that they become rarer. Hence why the A4's in Dirge should be included.

I'm aware of how weird the video title is for this but a solid high run from what I believe to be F4 to A4 at 3:07

The song is Goin' to Acapulco

Bob Dylan a baritone?

Post  dlaport on Tue Sep 03, 2013 12:46 am

Are you sure he's a baritone he sounds at least like a high baritone or a tenor.

In modern TRP terminology, "Baritone" doesn't necessarily mean "mid baritone": it can simply mean baritone of unspecified subtype, which can include high baritones.

He sounds like a HB to me nowadays.
He sounded quite tenorish in the 60s.

That's because his vocal cords expanded because of his high singing, he was always doing that whiny voice

He was never a tenor and he does NOT sound like a HB nowadays wtf are you on? I saw him live in Stockholm not long ago, his voice was deep as fuck and he would occasionally dip into the first octave on some phrasings.

get a clue sigh

*Cough*

Let's just skip this tirade. He's a baritone, that's it.

Thanks for the link, that's a great track and Dylan does sing it rather well indeed. I've been on my Bobbie-fixation during the last month, and I've started enjoying his voice. It's not big or strong, nor is it impressive on a technical level, but the man can carry a tune his way. His voice tells a story.

Indeed he does, even with that sterotypical voice he does it's still a great sound. The man wrote poems and performed them in a Woodie Guthrie-esque vein. It took me awhile to start to really appreciate it (probably because I had to gain a bit of life experience first.) but I always love to hear his songs now. In the early 70s he introduced that soft crooning style of singing and it blew everyone away. Nobody thought it was Dylan, I first heard that voice on "Let It Be Me" and I thought for sure it was a studio musician. It just proves that he really had a great voice in the traditional sense, it was just a stylistic thing to sing like that.
