Before the Flood is a live album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan and the Band, released on June 20, 1974, on Asylum Records in the United States and Island Records in the United Kingdom.

Performing less frequently, they were a considerable draw on their own by this point, and with their 1971 album Cahoots LP being their last to contain new original music (1973’s Moondog Matinee was an album of covers), they too were faced with daunting expectations. As the tour progressed, Dylan and The Band experimented with set lists and sequencing, avoiding the standard opener/closer routine and instead mixing things up. It was a basic two-set format, each with The Band performing both with and without Dylan; following the intermission, Dylan began the second set solo acoustic. On this night opened with the title song off their third album, Stage Fright, with Rick Danko fronting the group on lead vocals.

Bob Dylan’s discography. The records Dylan made at the height of his influence transformed American pop music; the best of them are among the best rock albums ever. So, to make distinctions within the body of his studio work, we’re holding Dylan to the absurdly high standard of his own greatest work - a B+ by Dylan’s standards would be an A by anyone else’s. His later records have a bad rep, but the best probably would have been acclaimed if they’d been made by any artist who didn’t carry the Dylan myth on his shoulders.
