As with its predecessor, "World Gone Wrong" garnered much critical acclaim, but little commercial success, a pity because it is a fine album and of the two, marginally better. referred to Dylan as a and Ira Robbins, writing in said that it expressed It was released on October 26th, a couple of weeks after Dylan came off his North American fall tour with Santana, a tour that would not have been a suitable showcase for his newly recorded material, although "You're Gonna Quit Me" and "Blackjack Davy" (along with occasional outings of "Hard Times" and "Jim Jones") from "Good As I Been To You" were performed. In November, Dylan appeared on but again chose to ignore both of these albums, performing 1974's "Forever Young" instead. Indeed, material from these two albums is rarely, if ever played live. "Tomorrow Night" from "Good As I Been To You" was given a couple of outings on the Far East tour of 1994, and the Tim Hardin song "The Lady Came From Baltimore" an out-take from the same album was performed a few times in the US and Europe the same year, but "World Gone Wrong" is virtually totally overlooked. But Dylan defended the validity of these albums, he said in 1997 and it would be in that year, after a four year gap that we would finally see an album of new Bob Dylan material.

Perhaps if I start by saying what it’s not: The tracks on World Gone Wrong are not those of a one-man band, a skilled display by a person who can speak different languages at the same time, or, more down-to-earth, is able to sing and play harp and guitar at the same time.

Reviews

World gone wrong – Mark Edwards - Hard Rain Project

Strange things have happened like never before
My baby told me, I would have to go

I can't be good no more
Once like I did before
I can't be good, baby
Honey, because the world gone wrong

Feel bad this morning, don't have no home
No use in worrying, 'cause the world gone wrong

I can't be good no more
Once like I did before
I can't be good, baby
Honey, because the world gone wrong

I told you, baby, right to your head
If I didn't leave you I would have to kill you dead

I can't be good no more
Once like I did before
I can't be good, baby
Honey, 'cause the world gone wrong

I tried to be loving and treat you kind
But it seems like you're never right, you got no loyal mind

I can't be good no more
Once like I did before

I can't be good, baby
Honey, 'cause the world's gone wrong

If you have a woman and she don't treat you kind
Praise the good Lord, to get her out of your mind

I can't be good no more
Once like I did before
I can't be good, baby
Honey, because the world gone wrong

Said, when you've been good now, can't do no more
Just tell her kindly, "There is the front door"

I can't be good no more
Once like I did before
I can't be good, baby
Honey, because the world's gone wrong

Pack up my suitcase, give me my hat
No use to ask me, baby, I'll never be back

I can't be good no more
Once like I did before
I can't be good, baby
Honey, because the world gone wrong
