Maria Muldaur captures Dylan's softer side – Heart of Mine showcases the love songs of Bob Dylan
Vocalist Maria Muldaur is a child of American folk and roots music. Raised in the fertile Greenwich Village scene of the 1960's, she earned her musical stripes alongside some of the most revered folksingers of the period. Among her contemporaries was one Bob Dylan, the balladeer who single-handedly redefined the pop music landscape with a brand of insightful music that transcended its folk roots and left an indelible mark that is evident to this day. In the early days of the Village folk scene, Muldaur and Dylan often played side by side in the coffeehouse circuit. Muldaur remembers well the “deep, fervent, compassionate and amazingly perceptive” voice that Dylan brought to the many social issues of the early and mid ‘60s during the Village heyday. But she insists that there was – and continues to be – more to Dylan's music than commentary, protest and change. “It occurred to me,” she says, “that while Dylan is mostly known for his scathing, perceptive, brutally honest and insightful songs of social consciousness, he has in fact, over the years, written many passionate and poignant love songs.” Like love itself, Heart of Mine encompasses a wide range of emotions: joy, sorrow, yearning, contentment and a host of other feelings that defy description. “The songs I found were in turn poignant, passionate, seductive, playful, mystical, often bittersweet, but always heartfelt,” says Muldaur. “It was a great pleasure, and at times, quite a challenge for me to wrap myself around these soulful songs and make them my own…Some were written long ago, some quite recently, these love songs convey great emotional honesty and depth and are timeless – as is true love itself.” Muldaur showcases this lesser known side of the Dylan legacy on her new Telarc release Heart of Mine: Love Songs of Bob Dylan. The album is set for release on August 22.
