Jakob Dylan reflects on breaking big with the Wallflowers' second LP, which is slated for reissue on May 13th. It would be logical to assume that music-industry success came easy for Jakob Dylan. Even now, with the album being reissued for the first time on two-disc vinyl on May 13th in honor of its 20th anniversary, Dylan is unsure exactly how or why Bringing Down the Horse struck such a chord with listeners. Thanks for taking the time to chat, Jakob. It has been a while.
I still do. I do not mope and I do not complain. But … people think it must be easy. Unfortunately, it flopped; reviews were mixed and sales were poor. For most young bands, that would be part of the learning curve. For The Wallflowers, who reluctantly occupied a spotlight which the music press and the record industry reserved for the offspring of a legend, it was devastating. It would be four long years before The Wallflowers released their second album, Bringing Down the Horse.
