The Wallflowers Artist Snapshot:

Growing up in the shadow of Bob Dylan would be too much for many, let alone trying to make it in the same field as the legendary troubadour. But Bob's son Jakob Dylan succeeded on his own terms when his band the Wallflowers hit it big with their own brand of roots rock in the 1990s and 2000s. Not ashamed of their admiration for Bob, Neil Young, or the Band, the Wallflowers became one of the genre's biggest acts by the turn of the century.

Album Description

When people talk about Jakob Dylan these days, they''re less likely to refer to his famous father than to his band, the Wallflowers, and their breakthrough album, Bringing Down the Horse. Not only a staggering commercial success, the disc is also a superb example of the folk-rock Jakob''s daddy helped pioneer more than 30 years ago. The Wallflowers don''t need family relations to command respect.

Product Notes

When people talk about Jakob Dylan these days, they''re less likely to refer to his famous father than to his band, the Wallflowers, and their breakthrough album, Bringing Down the Horse. Not only a staggering commercial success, the disc is also a superb example of the folk-rock Jakob''s daddy helped pioneer more than 30 years ago. The Wallflowers don''t need family relations to command respect.

When the Wallflowers recorded their self-titled album in 1992, most of the band''s members were 22 and weren''t ready for prime time yet. The songs had flashes of inspiration and promise but didn''t really hang together. It took four years for the Wallflowers to release a second album, but this time they were ready. The folk-rock melodies were strong; the playing was clear and muscular, and the production by T-Bone Burnett (friend of the family) framed the lyrics'' storytelling imaginatively. Jakob will never escape comparisons to his dad, but his new music can stand on its own as some of the decade''s best.

In fact, Jakob''s voice doesn''t resemble his father''s so much as Tom Petty''s nasal drawl, and the way Wallflower Rami Jaffee soaks nearly every song in Benmont Tench-like B-3 organ makes the Heartbreaker connection unmistakable. Fortunately, Jakob''s evocative songwriting and the Wallflowers'' high-energy playing reminds one of the early Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers records rather than the desultory, later work. Heartbreaker Mike Campbell even plays on "6th Avenue Heartache," the first single and a gloriously harmonized lament for the victims of America''s meanest streets. "The same white line that was drawn on you," Jakob sings, "was drawn on me." He takes a more defiant, more rocking approach later in the album when he proclaims he''s "Laughing Out Loud" in the face of everyone who ever tried to push him around. --Geoffrey Himes
