Blood on the tracks is of push came to shove my favourite but highway 61 as you say is such a tight record, no filler.
Proper young man at the height of his powers. Phenomenal record

How long have we got Funkman?! I’m getting kinda closer to narrowing it down. :slightly_smiling_face:

  1. Blood on the Tracks
  2. Desire
  3. Blonde on Blonde

Almost nothing in between about half a dozen records though - all classics.

All opinions innit, just never enjoyed it, feel like that and MMitM are the saggy middle of an otherwise ATD of an album. Think that’s why I prefer Desire, not an inch of fat on it.

Dunno if I’m being a noob but I can’t DM you with my results - says your profile is hidden…

Keep putting this off I think it might be Loansome Death of Hattie Carroll. It’s the song I remember most from when I was a child and might be the song with Cole Not Dole that informs my worldview.

But then Ballad Of A Thin Man. Shit all I know right now is it’s going to be a lumping on one song anyother way madness leads.

Started watching No Direction Home for the 80th time last night it’s so good.


Really good soundtrack/bootleg as well

Having listened to very little other than Bob for the last week I’m really having to question this.

just squeaks in there then edit: lol forgot blonde on blonde. think that would be 6th and everything else moved down one, sorry desire



1 - Blonde on Blonde
2 - Bringing it All Back Home
3 - Blood on the Tracks

The rest are in ever changing order, but those three are set in stone.

Musically his best, I think. That civil war band feel, the screeching violin and the drums sound incredible. Also some stuff on there like Romance in Durango doesn’t really sound too much like any other artist I can think of.


Favourite Dylan Albums (the first three are basically interchangeable):

  1. The Times They Are A-Changin’
  2. Blood on the Tracks
  3. Blonde on Blonde
  4. Bringing It All Back Home
  5. John Wesley Harding
  6. Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan
  7. Highway 61
  8. Time Out of Mind
  9. Desire
  10. Nashville Skyline
