That's a great album, when smart people can disagree about the best songs on it.


Also, my favorite Dylan album is Bringing it All Back Home for sure.

My favourite used to be Desire, but I'm not so sure anymore. It's between that, Blood On the Tracks, Nashville Skyline, Street Legal and Time Out Of Mind for me now.

Bringing it All Back Home will always be one of my favorites. It's got everything one might ask of Dylan. It's got a lighthearted playfulness ("Bob Dylan's 115th Dream") and a great heaviness to it. And I think it is quite possibly the best album to come out of Dylan's so-called "Electric Period", next to "Blonde on Blonde" of course. But I'm constantly reminding myself that Dylan is a consumate storyteller, and I feel like, with a few exceptions, "Desire" is an album that demonstrates this better than some of the preceeding albums. Similarly, "John Wesley Harding" exhibits this trait but with more explicit absurdity and mysteriousness.

But I do enjoy "Bringing it all back Home" and I listen to it often. It's always been hard to determine the greatest album to come out of that era. "Highway 61 Revisited" is such a great album too.

All great picks, and definitely all on my favorites list. "Street-Legal" rarely gets the acclaim it deserves. A friend of mine can't stand the album and he claims that his aversion stems from the choir of gospel women backing Dylan throughout the album. I've grown partial to the tone that it takes on and I feel like the songs exhibit a maturity in Dylan that listeners hadn't been acquainted with yet. I mean, Dylan had always been depicted as "wise beyond his years", but I think that the weight behind some of the songs on "Street-Legal" really showed another side of Bob Dylan. Pun intended.

Here's Bob covering one of my favorite tunes, Fred Neil's "Didn't We Shake, Sugaree (I've Got A Secret)"

So I just saw him day before yesterday, and thought he was pretty amazing. Sure his voice is pretty awful now but still, it's Dylan. He played alot of songs with different arrangements which was interesting to say the least. Also whoever, organized the location needs to be dick slapped by a rhino. An outdoor show in the middle of summer in south Texas, who the fuck thought that would be a good idea. I've never seen so many sweaty old people before. And yeh I was pretty much the youngest person there.

Anyway setlist:
Watching The River Flow
Don't Think Twice, It's All Right
Til I Fell In Love With You
Spirit On The Water
Rollin' And Tumblin'
Workingman's Blues #2
Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum
Ballad Of A Thin Man
Highway 61 Revisited
Nettie Moore
Thunder On The Mountain
Like A Rolling Stone
Jolene
All Along The Watchtower

The highlight for me was Don't Think Twice It's alright, I really wasn't expecting him to play it.

So apparently he's releasing a Christmas album. I think it's cool he's still making music that he wants to make, but the idea sounds pretty corny.
Bob Dylan to release Christmas album

My dad says that used to be a joke, way back when: "Didja hear the new Bob Dylan christmas record? Ha ha ha ha ha..."

haha

I was listening to "Oh Mercy" at work today. It's been a favorite of mine for some years now, but I rarely hear any discussion about the album on forums or anywhere else.

Any thoughts on "Oh Mercy"?

Personally, I like all the albums that Dylan (or Jack Frost if you so prefer) did with Danny Lanois. I feel like they've got a great set of working dynamics. Lanois was really able to hit on Dylan's strengths at the time instead of trying to force Dylan into a corner or relying on old tricks. It's a very cerebral album in that way, I think, and a decent precursor to later Dylan/Lanois collaborations like "Time Out of Mind".
